An anonymous commenter identified the "thug brandishing a weapon" in a previous post as Nitelen Jackson.
I attempted to verify the information (not really hopeful I could) and discovered Nitelen Jackson uses his own name on Facebook, and furthermore, announced today he was going to jail in "nine days."
Also, based on viewing literally HUNDREDS of photos of Nitelen Jackson I can say with confidence that, yes, the thug brandishing the weapon in the photo I previously published is indeed none other than Nitelen Jackson.
This Facebook information about going to jail in "nine days" matches with online MNCIS information for Nitelen Derese Jackson, DOB 11/13/1990. Jackson is due to serve a sentence of 45 days beginning 07/05/2012 at 9 AM. The sentence is for theft/take/transfer movable property without consent.
Jackson has an impressive rap sheet, and here it is...
Not all of these represent convictions, but plenty of them do.
As a tribute to the officers of the 4th Precinct who have worked so hard put this thug in jail where he belongs, Johnny Northside Dot Com will be celebrating Nine Days Of Nitelen. It might be hard to make sure of publishing one post every day so I may double up some days, but one way or another it's going to be NINE DAYS OF NITELEN with a finale on the Fourth of July.
Congratulations, Nitelen Jackson. You've earned it.
