CWBChicago

...
The witness told police that the crew fled in a black Cadillac. Minutes later, cops spotted a black Cadillac driving around the area with its headlights off and pulled it over.

A drill and saw were lying in plain view on the car's back seat and two catalytic converters were inside the trunk, prosecutors said Wednesday. Cops also allegedly found a loaded handgun with a defaced serial number in the glove box.

Prosecutors charged the driver, 33-year-old Adisa Bowling with possessing a firearm with a defaced serial number, unlawful use of a weapon, theft, and driving on a suspended license.

It was the second time Bowling had been arrested in four days. Last Friday, prosecutors charged him with manufacture-delivery of narcotics. He got out of jail on a recognizance bond Saturday. Bowling has seven previous felony convictions -- five for narcotics, one for gun possession, and one for escape, prosecutors said.

His defense attorney said he lives with his wife and has twelve children.

After hearing the state's allegations, Judge Charles Beach said the scenario of stealing car parts in a residential area while armed with a handgun is "a recipe for disaster, quite frankly."

I'm confused. I thought laser sights were horribly dangerous devices (in Chicago), worse than the firearm itself, but no charge was filed.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Maybe and this is kind of out there but, he could have taken the batteries out and put them in a toy for one of his twelve kids!
Once the batteries are out there is no laser......

They can't charge him criminally for the laser.  It's a city ordinance, not a state law.  They will usually confiscate the gun, and I'd think charge you administratively in their kangaroo court and fine the crap out of you after stealing your gun for daring to have a laser on it.  We wouldn't want the gangbangers actually hitting their criminal targets rather than innocent children during drive bys, now would we?

He deserves another chance.  Just think of his dozen kids.  Locking him up and he won't be able to make it to work to feed them.

Unfortunately his job is stealing catalytic converters.

 

I wonder if you get arrested for that, and its your source of income, can you now file for unemployment?

No citizen needs a laser weapon for self defense. Lasers are meant for peaceful protesters to light up an oppressive police force and oppressive airline pilots.

If he files his 1040 and claims it as income THEN he can apply for unemployment as he is self employed!
