Wah Wah Wah!

  • Jerome Williams kissed his mother on her forehead Monday night in her Englewood apartment house when he told her he was going to run a store errand.

    Two hours later, the 27-year-old was killed when, police say, he exchanged gunfire with Chicago police at a Family Dollar Store a few blocks away, leaving one officer wounded. Police said the shooting was sparked by Williams -- a parolee who was also a father of two with a third child on the way -- sticking up the store.
Gee whiz. A parolee in trouble with the law. And with three different babies by three different women. What a fucking surprise. But wait, it gets better:
  • Court records show that Williams was sentenced to 5 years in prison for aggravated discharge of a firearm in 2001 and 14 years for conspiracy to commit murder in 2005. He was paroled in December 2009 for the conspiracy conviction, and his parole was set to end later this year, according to a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Let's see - convicted in 2001; sentence to 14 years; that should be sentence discharged in 2015. But he was paroled in 2009, a mere 8 years, which isn't even close to what "truth-in-sentencing" might lead you to believe - oh wait, we don't have truth-in-sentencing here. Might this be another one of Quinn's 1,800 early parolees? But wait, it gets even better:
  • “What made him go in that store? I don’t know. I don’t know what was going through his mind,” his mother, Vanessa Williams, said Tuesday afternoon from the hallway outside her apartment. “But I know he’s not a killer.”
He's not a killer - just a convicted aggravated discharge of a firearm offender, convicted murder conspirator, AND attempted murderer of police officers. We guess it's not from lack of trying though, just lack of better aim. And the cherry on top?
  • Vanessa Williams had an older son, Tony Williams, who was shot and killed on the South Side in June 1999. She has two other children, a son and daughter.
Evidently, this absentee momma has a habit of raising children with no impulse control, easy access to illegal firearms, and a nasty habit of being on the wrong end of gun crimes. And the Tribune company gives her ink to spout her bullshit while we pay for it.

UPDATE: We're being told our calendar and math are wrong in the comment section and that he served less than 4 years on the second charge.

SCC, it's worse than you thought. It says he was sentenced to 14 years for the conspiracy in 2005,
and he was released for that in 2009. So, he only
served 4 years out of 14.

He'd have had better luck in prison. At least he'd
probably still be alive now (I'm not saying the
outcome was a bad thing though).

He was going to the dollar store to buy items to donate to the needy. He found the gun on the floor, saw the police and was trying to turn it in when the police shot him for no reason.

How long 'till the other two angels meet the fate of their siblings?

Its worse. He got 5 years in 2001. Then he got 14 years in 2005. Paroled in 2009. So he did maybe 4 years of a 14 year stint.

No, SCC. Looks like he was convicted and sentenced to 5years for agg discharge in 2001. So, he should still have been in prison at the time he committed his attempt murder in 2004 or 2005.

In 2005, he was convicted of attempt/conspiracy to murder, and was sentenced to 14 years. He should be in prison for THAT until 2019. He got 14 years, but he served six?

Can anybody determine if this is part of Quinn's early-release idiocy?

no scc, he went back to the joint in 2005 for the conspiracy to commit murder and got 14 years. in 2001 he got agg discharge and took 5 years. they were two seperate cases. so he went in the joint in 2005 and was released on parole in 2009 so he only did 4 years of 14 years.. was he one of gov quinns early releases??? hmmmmm, you really need to update it because released only 4 years after getting 14 years is a crime and needs to be investigated.

Here we go... If she tries to sue the officer or the city, I hope the officer counters for him being injured from doing his job answering the robbery in progress call that was being commited by her son. This is like sooo redundant. When do you step up to the plate and take responsibility as a parent and say I'm not taking up for your ass if you did it??!! And it has nothing to do with being black, poor or in the "ghetto" as some people like to say. I'm an African American female and don't believe in that crap...family or not...you do wrong, you have to face the consequences. There are consequences for your actions good or bad. I wasn't raised like that...well, whoop there it is!

The worst run-in with the law I've ever had was a speeding ticket about 10 years ago. BUT according to the Chicago Powers I shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun to protect myself. If they allowed it there would be "blood in the streets."

Oh, would that be different from now? How?

What about the Police Officers mother? Her son could of been killed. A hero was made and the papers interview the mother of a man who tried to kill a Police Officer after committing an armed robbery? Where is the interview of the mothers of the employees this offender was trying to rob? How close to death those innocent victims came? That's a story!

There isn't any recognizable or acceptable society in Englewood.

It is Bizzaro World. Bad is good, ugly is beautiful, broken is great, everything is backwards, broken mirrors are better, upside down, topsy-turvy, evil is really goodness in disguise, prison is a graduate school, a right of passage, a way to manhood in the ghetto, nothing to be ashamed of, just more oppression by the evil blue eyed devils.

Stealing and robbery and murder and drunkenness and drug use is the norm. A child like mentality denying reality is the accepted condition.

I feel sorry for his two illegitimate children and the two separate baby mommas. I also feel sorry for the third baby momma with a child on the way by this poor underprivileged and misunderstood victim.

Will they continue to get LINK and WIC so that we can continue to support them? I hope so, because they clearly lead lives worth living and contribute so much to society.

Handouts have made a great people of them. I want to continue to do my part so that they can grow up to be the finest citizens in our society. If only more out of my paycheck can go to them so that they don't have to work and have time to plan violent robberies and other crimes.

That 14 yr sentence was given in 2005 and he only served 4 yrs of it. The 2001 sentence was a 5 yr sentence & he was able to commit another crime 4 yrs later in 2005. But the best part is that the POS will not be causing any more havoc around here.

No, I got it, I got it! He found a gun in the Family Dollar and was going to turn it in (to prevent the little chilluns from gettin hurt), when the police came in and pointed their guns at him FOR NO REASON (!) In his confusion, he ACCIDENTALLY pulled the trigger and it went off, striking the RACIST POLICE OFFICER. That's what happened, his Mommy said so.

Aaah we all feel the pain, But mama, on the opposing side ,is pictured in the the same article holding picture of live boy (killer man). Now it's a battle of whose picture is bigger.

A little off topic but ....ASU alum and a Chicago policeman was quoted in the Arizona Republic saying theres concern a local gang are going to start donning ASU clothing because of the similarities between logos of the two, raising concerns that others could be unintended victims of gang wars if they wear the new ASU gear.

An ASU associate “If they were to use it in that way, we would take all legal action to protect our mark.”

My question is how often have gangs been leagally sued?

Fold it in half and rub it together real fast. It softens up enough to use at the cabin. I do prefer to wipe with the Scum Times, but the Fibbune is right there next to it.

Other uses include lining dog crates or bird cages and starting fires in the wood burner. Of course, I never buy those rags, just pick them up for free.

When they say, "He got kilt," does that mean something like, "He got game?" Does it somehow refer to the Celtic proclivity to the drink?

My people don't come from that island across the pond, but I myself got Kilt in spades. In fact, i'm heading back to the pub right now to "Get my kilt on."

And I got a great head of hair.

All mother's will have a hard time seeing anything that their child can do wrong. Denial is not morally right, but emotionally and psychologically understandable. Delusions are often the only means of survival for many people. The disgrace here is in the justice system and the "free" press that Americans have, as a whole, become delusional. The press ought to let the mother tell her story, and the judicial system, and anyone else. That is responsible reporting. But then. we no longer have a free press or responsible reporting.
