Again - Why is This Asshole Out?
- A man paroled two months earlier on two weapons charges traded gunfire with police in the West Pullman neighborhood after forcing a woman with three young children in her SUV to drive him about a mile from his home, prosecutors said.
Anthony Maltbia, 21, was ordered held without bail on charges of attempted murder of five police officers prosecutors say he fired upon, as well as aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.
- Maltbia made it to the home where he was registered for his parole and electronic monitoring, but left before police were able to search the home, prosecutors said.
[...] At the time he traded gunfire with police, Maltbia was on parole for convictions in gun-related cases from 2009 and 2010, according to prosecutors and court records. He had been released on parole in April, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Not one, but two weapons charges. Not only on parole, but on electronic home monitoring. Wasn't that supposed to be for "non-violent" offenders? Is anyone paying attention out there?
