KO Zone Boxing Club, 218 E. Cass St. Joliet, IL - Co-Owner Jermain Bennett murders his business partner Sean D. McGinn

It truly is amazing how many of these gyms are fronts to launder drug money and sell drugs

Jermain Bennett, 38, has been arrested on charges of murder, participating in a calculated criminal drug conspiracy and theft following the slaying of Sean D. McGinn, 39.

Bennett and McGinn operated KO Zone Boxing Club, 218 E. Cass St., where they reportedly met around 11 p.m. Thursday.

“They had brokered a deal to purchase a quantity of cocaine, but Bennett never had the drugs and planned to rob his partner with other conspirators,” Police Chief Mike Trafton said.

When McGinn arrived and parked behind the gym to meet with Bennett, he was shot twice outside the building.

“Bennett then removed a large amount of cash from McGinn’s vehicle,” Trafton said.

Nearby residents overheard the shots and called police. McGinn, of Lockport, was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:23 a.m. Friday.

Bennett was questioned by detectives before being charged Friday morning.

“There are other suspects who are currently being sought,” Trafton said Friday evening.

Bennett has marketed the gym as a haven for young people to be physical while avoiding street violence. In July 2011, Anthony Fearn, an 18-year-old bystander, was gunned down on the street outside the club after rivals gangs were refused entrance to a party inside.

“I saw this kid lying there facedown. Why should anyone have to go through that? I’m just trying to do everything I can to stop this from happening to another kid,” Bennett told The Herald-News later that month.

Jermain Bennett voted for Obama, then asked him if he knew anyone who wanted to be his business partner because his old one had quit suddenly.

Don't be fooled for a even a second, 1104pm.

Thanks to the cowardly Irish losers of yore who were too drunk to get their little dicks up to fuck their old ladies, the Mudman has reaped the benefit of conquering the firebush. Hence the term "Smoked Irish". That's why you see the occasional Patrick O'Leary that is black as the ace of spades, drags his knuckles when he walks and says "huh" a lot.

When you look at the big picture, it's hard to tell which is worse; being Irish, being a NigNog or being some of both. Given an ultimatum to pick being one, I'd have to say I'm leaning toward nigger.

To hell with that drug dealing back stabbing son of a bitch. Jermaine Bennet is a fucking coward. He used a place where kids would come and hang out or train for boxing as a front for his illegal gain. The police should also investigate a known close companion of his,Joyce A. Mitchell who was living in the basement with him.

You people sit behind your computers and sling mud about a situation and people you know nothing about. Sean was a nice guy. He didnt deserve to be killed. Are you assholes so rightous that youve never made mistakes? Until the full story comes out why dont you shut your mouths? The story is being told by a murderer. Whose to say its even true? I wouldnt believe a scumbag murderer about any thing that comes out of his mouth.

Sad part about this is I knew both of them. This doesn't surprise me about jermain. As teens and 20's. He use to jack people all the time. Then when he use to get busted from the cops he would snitch on people. He's never done any jail time. Sean was a good guy. He was the money in the operation. But he made a badd decision going in business with a peice of shit. He was wrong for the drug thing and I don't care at all for drug dealers buttt that man didn't deserve to die. I hope this info can open your eyes to what come out of a town known as a black hole called joliet!
