Balfour

Charged in Hudson Murders

12/2/2008 5:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Cook County state's attorney's office has just officially charged William Balfour with the murders of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew.

He's been charged with three counts of first degree murder and one count of home invasion.

Balfour is scheduled for a bond hearing at noon Central time tomorrow.

UPDATE 4:21 ET: In their presser, which just ended, the State's Attorney and cops said they're "confident" about their case, which some unnamed sources have claimed is "mainly circumstantial." They said they do have physical evidence tying Balfour to the scene, and emphasized they did not cut a deal with Balfour's girlfriend to elicit her testimony.

They check with his Momma yet on her view of this decision? She the one running around hollering "he a good boy"...

So was Plaxico Buress and Michael Vick. See, that what Balfour could have become had he not killed people---he could have just killed animals and shot himself. Or he could have waited for Obama to become President and found himself a whole new role model.

Please tell this community sports stars and entertainers are not role models. And neither are thugs like Balfour. A whole Generation lost, thanks to music, literature and the glorification of bling, prison life, and not doing your homework.

If it was the white mans fault, why didnt the motown generation do this? They had it worse than this generation by far and they didnt give up their values or love of family and education.

History will look upon this generation as the one that tried to send a whole culture and people back to enslavement....of themselves.

I wont sign up for the dumbing down of America nor be intimidated any longer into affirmative action kinds of thinking.
