Sunday was Mother's Day. What a shame. Also, police were all over St. Joe's Gardens on Sunday afternoon.

the papers arent saying what luster was in jail for. apparently johnson was charged with trying to steal a motorized shopping cart. probably drunk and monkeying around. and look what happened. luster looks like a maniac!!! should have been in solitary.

If u know anything you could say something about this but from personal experience the Cahokia Police station Is so nasty..They neglect you while your in there..the give you a warm water and a hot pocket two times a day no toilet paper hair all over poop on blankets all in the corner is a river of piss someone should shut that place down..no wonder they wave the 20 dollar booking fee..they hold you from your meds no phone calls they put you in this restraint chair and get in your face after your in it..I can go on AND ON.......

i CAN SEE GOING TO JAIL IF YOU DID SOMETHING BUT GETTING SOMETHING WHILE YOUR IN THERE...THEY SHOULD GET A CHARGE FOR BEING INHUMANE....SINCE THEY LIKE TO JUST CHARGE PEOPLE WITH ANYTHING AND MAKE THEM WAIT AS LONG AS THEY WANT EVEN IF YOU HAVE BOND WAITING..THEY SIT UP STAIRS AND LAUGH.....DO YOUR JOBS!!!!!

I have a great idea for all of you on this thread.
Don't do stupid things to get arrested for and you won't have to go spend time in there if its so bad.

Johnson suffered from cerebral palsy and used crutches to walk. I doubt he was drunk or monkeying around, probably just tired of using crutches to get around.

I miss my brother so much...He struggled all of his life and remained strong and vibrant...And for thode racist police at the cahokia jail to sit up and let ths man kill my brother is wrong...ik tht he made some type of noise indicating he was being hurt or in danger...I feel the police knew what they were doing when thy took his crutches and placed him with tht crazy man....ITS WRONG...FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SEE WHAT A GOOD AND STRONG MAN MY BROTHER WAS GO TO YOUTUBE AND LOOK UP CRIPPLE T THE NIGHTCRAWLER

What about the third guy that was in the cell? If he didn't try to help Mr. Johnson (even by calling out for someone), he should be charged as an accessory.
