Now It's $8 Million for Bail
- A Cook County judge has set bond at $8 million for a 24-year-old Wilmette man accused of beating his aunt to death with an aluminum baseball bat.
Police say the fatal beating of 49-year-old Nancee Rapoport occurred Christmas Day, only hours after her nephew, Anthony Rapoport, was released on bond on an unrelated assault warrant.
Wilmette police say they were called to the residence Friday after the aunt and nephew quarreled about donuts he was supposed to buy. They say they arrested the nephew on the outstanding warrant for a Skokie hospital attack.
Officers say that after Anthony Rapoport was released on bond, he returned home and attacked his aunt. He was arrested without incident a short time later.
And the attack that he was arrested for previously?
- Just like Anthony Rapoport, who was given bail after slashing at one e.r. nurse and kicking another while threatening to kill them. He then was given a warrant after missing court; and when arrested for that . . . you guessed it, given bail, after which he went home and killed his aunt with a baseball bat. Bastards are never held accountable. Where's the media attention?
We don't know. You miss one court appearance for what sounds like a knife assault on hospital staff, you probably ought to sit for a while. But you know those judges and ASA's who don't push for the high bonds. Unaccountable to anyone.
