Three days a free man and Tavarius Radford hasn't left his mother's north side Kankakee home much. He has gone to Ultra Foods and Walgreens. And he's spent some time in Chicago visiting one of his brothers.

But that's about it.

    Ok Princess, he is not playing the Poor Me card, if you fully knew the entire story then you would understand why he has only been those two places! Secondly, if you have been locked up for 2 years and you have gotten used to things being a certain way, of course it would take time to get back to what we call the norm. Why do you feel he hasn't shown remorse? Have you talked to him? Or is it because you say he has been on facebook? Hmm..he has been on FB posted on family members pages in our pictures, yes smiling because he is glad to be home, glad to see his mother and touch her, glad to see his siblings and extended family. He has been gone for 2 years!! What do you expect him to frown when he sees them? You do not know the pain he is feeling, or how he hurts when everyone leaves and the cameras are off. How would you know he has been on FB? Are you stalking him? Waiting to see something to run and tell? Well tell this, he is INNOCENT and no matter who believes it or not, the one that matters the most knows and that is GOD!

    this person may or may not have done this crime. however the poor me I only went to the grocery store and walgreens boohoo. there are a lot of people in the kankakee area that cannot go to the stores or hang out with relatives or friends. he hears voices...jails are noisy..sorry it's not the holiday inn. try staying a night in the hospital..its noisy there too. i do not feel that he has shown any remorse and he is OUT AND ABOUT as I've seen him on facebook. So this story is just stupid. Why don't you do a story on a homebound elderly person or a disabled child effected by child abuse or neglect. Nope story on the guy that is awaiting sentencing. Fools!
