On one hand, Mo’Kelly applauds the Chicago police officer for doing the right thing, but on the other hand, gives him the side-eye for trying to defend and mitigate his involvement. Mind you, his son is the OLDEST of those involved at 17 and thus charged as an adult. Bail set at $100,000…outstanding. He can’t bail out his son and Mo’Kelly is more than pleased with that.
From the Chicago Sun-Times
While the elder Palomino admitted what his son did was “wrong” and said his son will have
to “suffer the consequences,” he also said prosecutors unfairly portrayed the teen as the aggressor.
Raymond Palomino never stole the victim’s book bag and doesn’t appear in the video until minutes into it, which proves he didn’t initiate the attack as authorities have claimed, Michael Palomino said.
“What he did was wrong, but he was in it with the rest of them. He wasn’t the initiator,” Michael Palomino, 51, said. “He’s being made the fall guy because he’s 17.”
He described his son as a “fair” student and “good kid” but said he may have been negatively influenced by others.
He said his son didn’t give a reason as to why he and the others attacked the victim.
Michael Palomino said he believed the bond was “too high” and said he can’t afford to bail his son out.
“I’m upset with what happened in court,” he said.
(“I’m upset with what happened in that alley, Mo’Kelly said.)
He said never married his son’s mother and has not seen her since 1996. He believes she has been jailed for forgery.
