Dumb Illinois Criminals

  • Two men who robbed a south side jewelry store Wednesday morning didn't get far after swiping money and jewelry from the business, Milwaukee police said.

    As they left the store in the 1100 block of W. Historic Mitchell St. about 10:50 a.m., the two robbers - at least one of whom had a handgun - were met by a group of at least four men who robbed them, Lt. Thomas Welch said.

    A fight broke out on the street before both groups got into their vehicles, sparking a chase, Welch said.

    Milwaukee police officers pulled over both vehicles, arresting four people - the two original robbers, ages 31 and 40, and two men from the second group, ages 22 and 27, Welch said. All four of the arrested men were from Illinois, he said.

And now the Wisconsin taxpayers get to foot the bill for the next 5 to 12.

But at least up in Wisconsin they will see jail time. The judges are not as easy as the are in Chicago.

I'm glad it happened there. In Crook County in front of Judge Davy, they'd get acquitted as long as they weren't also charged with DUI.

I'm sure the second group of four, who probably followed the first two up to Milwaukee after getting wind of their impending job, thought they would have some easy pickings after letting the initial robbers do the heavy lifting.

They probably should have just found their own store to rob.

Are the Providence-St. Mel, De LaSalle, Leo, Mt. Carmel, Luther South and St. Sabina students committing crimes too? Why don't "we" ever hear about private school students' crimes?

We are constantly reminded about how many CPS "student" victims are slain each year. I wonder how many CPS "students" are arrested each year?

I'm surprised Daley's nephew VANECKO didn't show up and rob all four.
