It suggests that the young people connected to them have little to no chance of receiving any sound advice from their elders.

Janet Strickland, 64, has just been arrested and charged with the first degree murder of her husband that she allegedly paid her 19-year-old grandson to commit.

William Strickland, 72, was shot in his back six times by his grandson, that is also named after him, William Strickland.

He was charged with “one count of first-degree murder and one count of armed robbery with a firearm,” after shooting his grandfather on the Far South Side of Chicago.
