Our Wonderful Justice System

Remember the homeless jagoff who attacked a woman in front of the grocery store downtown because she wouldn't give him a cigarette? He and his companion jumped her, knocked out 14 of her teeth, attacked her boyfriend and who knows what other mayhem. This happened in August 2008.

Well evidently, he pled guilty on 02 October to two counts of robbery (felonies) and was released "time served awaiting trial" on 20 October. And mere hours later....
  • Derrick King, 47, was paroled Tuesday for the earlier attack, which happened in August 2008 less than a mile east of today's incident. Hours later he was in police custody again, charged with misdemeanor simple assault.

    Police say King approached the woman, who was smoking a cigarette, at about 3:20 a.m. in the 500 block of West Roosevelt Road and asked her for a smoke. She said no.

    "He told her: 'Remember the couple who got beat real bad for not giving a cigarette? That was me,' " [...]

    King then charged at her, Chaplin said. The woman caught the attention of two police officers patrolling nearby who quickly arrested King.

Couldn't even stay out of trouble for 24 hours. And he's out just after pleading guilty to two felonies? What a wonderful system we have here in Cook County! Maybe Alvarez and her crew want to explain this one?

This guy will never be rehabilitated. He will never ever be a productive member of society. So why do we have to keep putting up with people like him. Why can't we just ship him off somewhere and be done with him forever.
Everyone's afraid to stand up and say that some people just don't belong living amongst a civilized society. It blows having to hear this stuff every day and even worse if it's one of our loved ones this animal attacks next.
But if it were a judge's family member or Anita Alvarez', forget about it.

As much as I would like to throw Anita Alvarez and her crew under the bus....it sounds like this one is for the presiding judge to explain. Who was the judge presiding over this case that decided that time served (2 months) was an appropriate sentence for TWO counts of robbery which by the way is a felony last time I checked. And unless something has changed while I was sleeping, a felony is punishable by 365 or more days in jail.

This moron had TWO felony counts and basically served one month on each.....PLEASE TELL ME WHO THE PRESIDING JUDGE WAS THAT AGREED TO THIS?????

It's every bit as important, if not more so than what's going on south and west, you deal with these deranged people wandering around the loop, near west and near south sides daily, preying on real victims. 001, 018, 012 and 021 deal with these wackos all the time, they all seem to have the same address, 1458 S.

Hey 11:15 on 22Oct-

Please explain how ccw makes my job harder or increases the danger to me. Please. I'm doing my best to make sense out of your statement but I can't. Because it doesn't make any sense. Your position is not only wrong, it's indefensible. I've been on this job for almost three decades, and yes, I too have on occassion arrested people for carrying guns when I should have let them go. Middle class, tax paying, otherwise law abiding citizens whose only "crime" was the desire to survive in this urban jungle. And I'm ashamed of myself for doing it. My only defense that I was young, dumb, full of come and wanted to get on Tac. Shame on me. And shame on any copper that will arrest any of the kind of people I mentioned. In todays climate of no accountability for the thugs of this city, in an age where the criminal becomes the victim, in an era where the system is geared to protect the defendant and not the victim, how can you blame a decent person for carrying a firearm? How could you arrest them?
CCW does NOT increase the danger to you or make your job harder. You took an oath when you took this job. An oath to protect the citizens and defend the Constitution of the United States. How about following that Constitution and not the whims of some politician who is surrounded by armed bodyguards twenty four hours a day?

CCW does not increase the degree of difficulty on your job. As it is, police have no legal obligation to come to a civilian's aid..so therefore, other than investigation and clean-up, you aren't going to "protect" us. I'm cool with that. All I want is the freedom the Constitution grants me to protect myself. I won't be shooting you, or pointing a gun at you, or carrying into bars or schools. In fact, when I see you alone because the city doesn't care about 2-man cars anymore, and some asshole you stop starts shit with you, I'll be the one shooting that piece of shit, so we can both go home to our families that day.

Have you no faith in fellow law-abiding citizens? The government really has destroyed your view of us, hasn't it? You know it does work in like, 48 other states, right?

Maybe the ASAs charge Robbery instead of Hate Crime because Robbery is a Class 2 Felony and Hate Crime is a Class 4?

Also, the guy was out because the judges and the IDOC have essentially conspired and hid behind the truth in sentencing laws. A 3 year sentence is NEVER 3 years in Illinois by operation of law. Blaming the SA, while easy, is misguided.
