As the hood legend goes, Chicago once had a little girl named “Lil Snoop” who may have killed at least twenty people.
She lost her brother to gun violence and paced those same Chicago streets with a vengeance, or did she?
When you hear her mother sob about both of her children dying to violence, you wonder how does this happen?
I have a question for mother’s that have lost their children to this Violence, you don’t wonder why your child has new clothes that you can’t afford?
If your son or daughter is wearing Gucci, Prada, Fendi and you are wearing Wal-Mart’s Faded Glory, that doesn’t make you wonder where a 15-year-old, with no job received the money to buy these high dollar items?
It is never a mother’s fault of her child’s death, but shouldn’t it be a tidbit of a sign that maybe your child is not spending his afternoons at the local library?
Shouldn’t this be a clue that your child and their friends are living a dangerous life?
K.I. went into a violent tail spin that would not let her rest until she avenged her brother’s death.
Now, did she live a short life of crime or was she just a victim of a false reputation, and a chomped up legend?
We may never have the complete truth about this female teenage assassin due to the fact that she is now with her brother, but in a casket of her own.
Now, she may be respected, and bragged about like someone with a high credibility, but that did not stop the gun shots from entering her little body, and ultimately revoking her chance at life.
K.I. was shot nine times in the throat, face and everywhere else…
Her blood was left splattered with her lifeless on the step….
Was her death retaliation or just someone else trying to earn stripes in the game?
Either way here is a brief look at the Chiraq’s late soldier in an invisible war,Gakira K.I” Barnes.
The Death Of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer***messymandella***
READ THIS FIRST
The Story of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer still haunts Chicago.Maybe its because of an 11-year-old life being a killer,and being killed the same week?
However, the killers were the Hardaway Brothers,Derrick 14 Cragg 16.These brothers are still in prison for the murder of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer.However, they were also kids that were told by the leader of Black Gangsta Disciples to get rid of “Yummy.” They told the 11-year-old they were going to take him to a spot, because the local news and the police were looking for “Yummy” was wanted for the murder of Shavon Dean. Cragg and Derrick had to kill him.The murdering boys never had a chance to live,flourish, or contribute anything to society. NOW WE WILL HEAR THEIR STORIES!
“Yummy” was wanted,and he wanted his mommy.He used a phone to call his grandmother Janie Fields, and 2 hours later he was gone, forever. See they were 3 little boys that were influenced by an adult piece of shit, that used them for his own financial needs. There are many Derrick and Cragg’s in prison right now.Everything you do, trust, there are little “Yummy’s”, Cragg’s, and Derrick’s studying your every move. I am convinced love and admiration were the reason “Yummy” trusted them.These brother’s feared death penalty.However, a plea to live was given to these brothers. Who would take it all back if they could?
Poor Janie Fields thought she could get to “Yummy” in time. Her older neighbor told her he was going to wait for her to come get him.Janie packed his clothes up and traveled the neighborhood looking for her grandson. When she reached the house he called from, she thought it was a prank. The lady assured her that “Yummy” was there on her porch. He was waiting for his Grandmother, that he called “mom”. Yes, he was there,but left for his last ride.Not having any positive men in his life, he assumed the Hardaway boys were going to help him.
Instead , they took “Yummy” to a Pedestrian tunnel and shot him in his head twice.There is a noticeable cut on his face at his funeral where the bullet ended his life. The murder was a travesty because of the two lost lives that were also manipulated for gang violence. These boys were also still children.
Now, the question is why did these boys get manipulated into ruining their lives forever? They wanted to belong,and followed by example. All three children lost their lives on that day. Scared little boys admitted they did kill their friend.However, the man who ordered the hit could not be found. Some argue that they knew what they were doing. Well, the decisions you thought were right back in the day,seem stupid now.Life as you know, can change with a blink of an eye. “Yummy” was on a porch, and later riding in the back of the car hiding with his older “BGD” Members,to his own execution. These are the killers of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer” and this can serve as an example.”Yummy” died too soon,but at least his story lives for decades to come. I hope it saves someone’s life.
Derrick didn’t have an education. 2 months out of elementary school, never even entered High School. When asked about the murder Derrick stated, “The 14-year-old was blind…hardheaded know it all that had dreams of becoming a drug dealer.”The gang violence that seems glamourized by some of our favorite rappers,hides the fact of the “Yummy’s”, and lest us not forget Shavon Dean’s,that are collateral damage.
There are parties and events that I won’t go to(They think I anti-social),because of shooting and fighting.It never fails, someone starts shooting.Bullets have no name. If I pack to go somewhere, I don’t pack a gun.Knowing that many shoot outs happen at parties and events I stay away.My life is too precious. Children killing and becoming killers seem to be a cycle in many impoverished and urban neighborhoods.
Why should we care about something that happened so long ago? We’ll it is still happening. Everyone failed these boys in life,and they had the wrong people raising them,and awful examples of men.These children were lost and alone,and it made it easy to manipulate them. I can’t even imagine being in prison since 1996, or 1997.That is not my reality. However, it sadly is, for Cragg and Derrick Hardaway. How can you help save the lives of little children? Let them know the story of “Yummy”.Some mothers took off early for work to see the open casket of Robert”Yummy” Sandifer. They dragged their scared kids by their side to witness what could happen to them. They knew this life was a prime example of what can happen when you join gangs,and lead a life of crime. How long are we going to pretend that every cause does not have an effect?We have to lead by example. We have to stand together,and even if Yummy gives you nightmares.Remember his 11-year-old life on earth was a nightmare. I have pledged to help young men and women know their self-worth. We can start programs, or take 10 minutes, to let a child know we want them to have the best.Ten months before his death during his psychological exam at a state-run shelter for children, Robert “Yummy” Sandifer was asked to complete this sentence: “I am very . . .”
His answer: “sick.”
Here is a small interview from Derrick Hardaway from AP and
The streets of Chicago, are still a gang nightmare for all the residents, that just want peace. This baby will now enter the dirt, and so did “Yummy.”
They are laying in a casket, and resting before they are 21 years of age, but then again in Chiraq and Detroit if you live to be over the age of 21, you are considered lucky. I will keep reporting these stories, because the news can’t keep up with the genocide and these little lives have purpose even if this war is destroying our culture …
I wrote this story a hot minute ago,thousands have read it. Salute to all MAX B’s fans and family. I don’t believe he should be in the BOX that long!
Why does messymandella care?
There is something that bugs me about the Max B case.
I know he bragged about crimes, and served time for robbery.
I know all of this, but Max did not deserve this mess.
I just don’t understand why he doesn’t have a chance for freedom until 2042?
We’ll I am a prissy nerd.
I read all the time. I retain knowledge and I wonder about truth. Some criminals do make it a life long goal to visit the penitentiary repeatedly. I don’t know why I think this case is different? I have read about and listened to interviews. My heart hurts for strangers, if I feel they suffered injustice. I hope Santra Rucker and others get their chance to rejoin freedom.
I don’t understand the Criminal Background of Conspiracy. I just hope NO ONE tells me they might commit a crime.
So just because someone called me and joked about it I can get 75 years in prison? I made jokes about him being stupid enough to be in prison, for running his mouth. His freedom, and lively hood are not a joking matter. He has been thrown away to rot.It is frightening that talking can get you 75 years.
Where the hell is the proof he was the mastermind?
Was there a taped confession?
His on again, off again girlfriend told on him. He’s gone, but again how do we know he masterminded this plan? Career over! Gina could have easily did that to get a lighter sentence and no one could discredit her story? There is no proof he orchestrated this robbery. Let’s began the love story from Hell. Dipset was on tour. However, Cam’ron,and Santana were a “no show.” Max B met a groupie,Gina Conroy, in Myrtle Beach South Carolina at a concert.
Gina Conway, left and wanted to “live the life.” Max B used her and threw her away, horrible but truthfully that was the final result.
While he was flashing money,she was stripping to pay for her drug addiction.
He would then turn around and take her back,that was his mistake.
Charly Wingate is an arrogant, little man who brags about pimping, and always flashes his money. Does that mean he’s guilty?
I do think that rappers can convict themselves with their own lyrics. Reputation and music videos perceive a lifestyle that can glorify crime.
He might be wrongfully accused,this time. I just don’t understand how he wasn’t at the scene, but is doing this time?
Shouldn’t the person or people on the scene and firing the gun, be the only people punished?
Once again, if he did it, no sympathy. What if he didn’t do it?
We won’t know until 2042.
Some women and men become scorned. They hate you for not wanting them so they plot revenge,even divorces get violently damaging. Love turns to hate, and friends become rats. Max B was already living with other women and had eyes on a new strand of dummies to sell ass, she was damaged goods.
Wouldn’t you be mad if you moved from the South and left your life, to be with someone? He kicked her out,and she was financially struggling, while his pockets were wavey.You can’t blame her for wanting revenge. Maybe she didn’t want him with anyone? She now has her wish. Gina should have left with dignity and both would be free instead of behind bars. She was sleeping on sofas with members of his family,just to witness his life. She did whatever she needed to do just to be a part of Max B’s circle.
When you leave someone, they want you to hurt and suffer.
Gina lost her mind, and her man.
She wanted Max B back, and he almost completely cut her out of his life.
Some women and men lose their mind after rejection. Gina was one of them bitter duped women, that pray and hope you to suffer and fail. Her wishes were granted!
I pray for Max B and the families of the victims. Max was given a raw deal. Let’s hope that a conversation about a robbery is NOT the reason if he will leave prison, he will be an old man. Max B is in my thoughts because those appeals can’t get you home! Someone has to finally get a conscious and tell the damn truth, there is a fact or conversation that can prove he should be home! I don’t know Max B, and have never met him. My intuition is telling me that he is mentally breaking down, and almost accepted his confinement. I know he is putting on a brave face, but something is not right.
This case is just different…
Your lawyer messed up your chance to freedom, no debating that fact!
