Last year CPD took down a drug dealer, his drug house and his gang. Even though the gang members had firearms and were convicted felons - even they didn't get AG UUW, they got possesion of a weapon by a felon, and they weren't held on 50K bail, and they were only facing 2 - 4 year sentences (according to the paper).
This is another example of Chicago politians having absolute hatred and contempt for citizens who dare to believe that they have rights under the second amendment and simultaneously being soft on gangs and real crime.
From today's Tribune, story on the man who killed a two y/o girl. My link
"Johnson had been free on $25,000 bail in connection with a Sept. 17, 2011 arrest, his first arrest on serious charges, according to court records.........Last year, police arrested Johnson about 2:30 a.m. on the sidewalk in the 1000 block of West Addison Street, in possession of a handgun, according to police and court records.
After he made bail in the gun case, Johnson was again arrested on Oct. 11 about 2:20 p.m. in an alley in the 4700 block of North Sheridan Road, according to court records. Johnson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unlawfully possessing a blackjack, served two days in jail and paid a $250 fine, according to police and court records. He was scheduled to appear in court in connection with the gun charge on May 19."
Amazing, a thug walking around Wrigleyville packing gets 25k bail, then while on bail gets caught with a blackjack which I understand is a UUW offense and still manages to stay out of jail long enough to kill a young girl. Compared to what was published about the Nevada man, unless their are other factors you are absolutely right CountZero this is b.s.
