Why Truth in Sentencing Matters

Served half his sentence, then took under a month to find a gun on parole and shoot at the police:
  • Charges have been filed against a parolee police called a "possible suspect" in a police involved shooting at a hot dog stand Monday afternoon on the Far South Side.

    Kenneth Brown, of the 7100 block of S. South Chicago Ave., who police said was a "possible suspect" in the incident that occurred Monday at 3 p.m. at Jim's Original hot dog stand, 16 E. 95th St., was arrested because he fit the general description of the offender.

  • Police said Brown was convicted in 1994 for an armed robbery, sentenced to 30 years and was on parole for it at the time of his arrest Tuesday at 9337 S. Wabash Ave.
Someone e-mailed that this was one of Governor Quinn's "early parolees" but we can't locate any evidence of that. He doesn't fit the profile of a "non-violent" offender, but appears to have served 15 years of a 30 year sentence. At this point we're assuming he's just a regular piece of shit criminal who should have served something a lot closer to the 30 year sentence rather than 15 years.

Lets face it, these mutts don't go to prison for rehabilitation, they're sent there to keep them off the streets for our protection.

Anyone who expected this mutt to go straight is smoking some pretty good reefer.

This is what these mutts do, Crime is their way of life. He probably misses his homies & "girlfriends in the joint. Make him happy send him back for the full term of his old sentence, and whatever new sentence he recieves consecutively. When he has served his time and is an old fart, release him & put him on welfare. Somebody taking care of him is all he has ever known/wants to know. " Pappa Was A Rolling Stone " !!!!

You should see all the "early parolees" at 95th and the redline. Wearing those nifty shoes and sweat outfits, walking around clueless

Shame on you, SCC. He's reformed now. It's just the man keeping him down.

Pat Quinn is a goof.

Between granting clemencies and early releases, he's trying to empty out our prisons... Apparently he wants to sell all our prisons to the Feds, not just the Thompson facility.

Now that's not fair. You are criminally profiling. Just because he had a pension for robbing people at gun point, just got out of the crapper, it's close to Christmas and he ain't got no scratch to buy gifts for his childrenzes, that doesn't make him guilty or even suspect. He served 'most' of his sentence and has been 'mostly' rehabilitated.$

Give a brutha a break!

We need to send more of them there and keep them there.

IF this offends you, what about those "Chicago Cop-Killers" that were given 100-200, 200-600 etc. years in jail (obviously meant to be life sentences)and come around annually requesting parole?
Why do the families have to relive their loved ones deaths every 1-3 years and have to attend parole hearings?
Do your part. Sign those petition sheets, attend parole hearings at 26/Cal and/or Springfield to keep these cop-killers in jail, where they belong.
RIP brothers, Loftus, Wenzel, Kaner, Severin, Rizzato, Pollard, et al.

What about that guy SCC addressed in an earlier blog responsible for a brutal attack on a couple at Roosevelt/Wabash causing permanent facial disfigurement/injury(ies) only to be subsequently released and immediately went back to the same area (within hours) only to strike again in similar fashion. (Nice work by the arresting officers, by the way)
Let Quinn explain his policy personally to those victims as HE looks them in the eye.
