Women like Julia should be prosecuted for picking an obvious monster as a husband.

WE ALL KNEW IT, BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT. THIS IS A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY, TO KILL 1 PERSON IS UNFORGIVABLE, BUT TO TAKE 3 MEMBERS OF 1 FAMILY, WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE IS COMPLETE EVIL AND NEEDS TO GET OFF OF OUR PLANET, FAST!

Multiple times? Dear Lord, the killer really made this personal didn't HE? The killer didn't want that little boy talking. If Balfour did this (and I believe he did)...may he burn in hell forver & ever. Julia, how could you knowingly marry a convicted felon and put that little boy - your own flesh & blood - in jepoardy?

My Prayers go out to the Hudson Family in there time of need. Whoever killed this young child is very sick, all that child wanted before his death is to see his mother again. I hope the Chicago Police Dept. Finds the sick S.O.B. and make him pay for what he did to this family!

What a coward! I hope the other inmates make his life a living hell if he's lucky enough to avoid the death penalty. Bring his ass to my house for justice...I could save the system millions of $$$$ in trials and appeals.

How could Julia King allow her precious son to be in the same room as this monster not to mention ever allow William Balfour to be ALONE with her 7-year old son. What mother in her right mind would allow that??? All Julia's tears now are just crocodile tears. Obviously, she was never thinking of her son's well-being before.

Anger management issues led to overkill...

The prisons are full of thugs just serving their time (minus receiving treatment and/or rehabilitation) only to be released and reoffend...

Stop blaming the mother of this poor child! The woman has lost her preciious baby in such a terrible manner. I pray for her and Jennifer and the rest of their family, that they find peace in such a tragic time. My heart goes out to them. Julian looks like such a sweet kid. How anyone can harm a child the way this child was, is beyond me.

The mother knew she was hanging out with a gang banger, so come on. Take some responsibility for your life and the consequences of your actions. What is the problem now? This is not enough of a wake up call for the morons glamorizing the gangster lifestyle as cool and glamorous. It is a despicable waste of a life and soul and it is murder. WAKE UP PEOPLE !! THUGGERY IS NOT COOL. SAVE YOURSELVES. DONT KILL YOURSELVES AND THOSE YOU LOVE JUST TO BE "COOL"!
