Again, Why Was He Out?

  • A brother and sister and a second man have been charged in connection with the robbery of a store and the shooting of the owner’s brother when he tried to chase them on the Southwest Side last month.

    Jose Guerra, 19, his sister, Gabriela Contreras, 21, and Estevan Rosario, 17, were charged with armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery with a firearm in the December attacks after tactical officers caught Guerra with a gun on Sunday, authorities said.

  • The victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition after having been shot in the head. He remains in a vegetative state today, prosecutors said.;
So he's a murder as soon as they pull the plug. And how could this whole thing have been prevented?
  • At the time of his arrest, Guerra was on parole in a 2010 robbery for which he was sentenced to 6 years in prison, but for which he was released on parole in December 2011, according to state Department of Corrections records.
That isn't 85% of a sentence, that isn't even day-for-day credit. He's out in ONE YEAR for a SIX YEAR SENTENCE, and now someone is going to be dead because of it. How many times did we cover this last year alone? Two? Three times? And that's only the ones we know about. How many more are there? Dozens? Hundreds?

Democrats can't bear to see their voters behind bars, and society is paying an unholy price for it.

It may not account for all of it, but keep in mind "time served" in CCJ on these. It can be 6 mos. to a year or more real easy on a repeat felony, 2+ years on a killing.

You know, give up the extra 5%, 5 years more FOREVER and we'll think about letting you fucks have the same healthcare for another 3 fucking years.

FUCK THIS COCKSUCKER!!

FOP better NOT give up ANY pension related benefits for this fucker, regardless of what he pulls with retiree healthcare.

He's gonna fuck us all anyway on healthcare, only a fucking straight up ACCOMPLICE would GIVE AWAY ANY OF OUR PENSION BENEFITS FOR A NON CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED BENEFIT!

But there is good news right around the corner. Despite the fact Gov. Quinn has closed TAMMS and another prison, he states the current jail facilities are over crowded. To help ease the burden, he plans on releasing more prisoners early like the fiasco a few years ago. Only this time he promises to look more closely at the convicts he releases. I guess he admitted he didn't look at all last time.

This is by far the main problem for law enforcement. How can these bosses and the citizens expect any of us to keep fighting the good fight when the people who we arrest and prosecute get out early. In this case the offender got the equivalent of county time for a Class A misdemeanor. Here's a start to ending all of this lawlessness Chicago has been experiencing. Lock these motherfuckers up for 100% of their sentence. This would include everything from a Class 4 felony all the way to up to murder. Maybe then the criminals of this city ,county and state won't be so quick to committ a crime. This story is fucking sickening to me.

SCC, I disagree with the poster at 12:22 AM. I think it's mostly political. It is the democrats who harp about how much money it costs to keep criminals incarcerated. They refuse to consider how much more society is harmed when murderers, rapists and thieves are free to carry on their depredations. They also feel that criminals are underdogs who've gotten a bad break from society and need to be given a second chance. Only it's now become unlimited chances. I couldn't hazard a guess how many rap sheets I've read for people arrested one hundred times or more.

As for as former Gov. Ryan, he was a complete RINO. During that election I actually voted for the democrat, Glenn Poshard, because he was more conservative. Poshard got no support from Daley and Madigan because he wouldn't kiss their asses, Ryan was more than happy to pucker up.

My answer to overcrowded prisons is to have the inmates work in shifts. Sleep in shifts, do everything in shifts.
If there is two to a cell, make it three in a cell. On of the inmates will always be working.

I know the thought of getting caught and going to jail use to be terrifying but now a days it is a vacation. TV, health care, good food, juice machines in the common area.
Enforce the laws that are on the books, don't rack your brain trying to come up with ways to regulate guns because when you do, the only people that it will affect is the law abiding citizen that bought legally, registered legally, and takes responsibility for securing that weapon in a place where children can't have access to it. Bad guys are not going to give up their weapons, just the good guys.

Here's a crazy solution, cutback on some social programs ( like abused welfare) and throw a crap load of more money at the prison system, build more and hire more guards. Then prosecute even the smallest case properly and keep these savages in prison for their complete term.
You can justify cutbacks by stating that most of the imprisoned would have been leaching off a program so it's a wash and you keep them off the streets. I know some libs feelings would be hurt but these are desperate times that need only logical measures. They would cry that only the poor and minorities would be targeted with this act, NO just criminals would be targeted. In addition to public safety, you would also employ construction workers to build these prisons and employees to operate and secure them. It's a win win situation and if the judicial system would jump on board it would work.

That whole process is really screwed up. They use email to notify candidates so tell your friends to look in their spam or junk mail folder. The City of Chicago, through Human Resources Director Tracy Ladner, is too cheap to send out a letter to confirm major employment notifications and instead uses email.

No joke, if they missed something due to the incompetency of the city and their email crap go hire a lawyer and sue.

This is a monumental waste of City resources just to save the cost of stamps. The City spends tons vetting candidates for police officer and then can't be bothered to send out a regular or certified letter to notify candidates of the next phase of the process. Unreal.

It costs mucho $$$$ to do the testing and background investigation necessary to get a person on that hire list and then to waste it by shortsighted stupidity by refusing to buy an envelope and stamp is, sad to say, situation normal for the City of Chicago.

Nephew was arrested at 1pm on a Friday. Cops said not their fault we must arrest him. Fine, I am expecting to pay a minor bond and take him home. He has not been in trouble for 10 years, zero arrests, working, and on the straight and narrow. No bond the judge screams the next morning. He does not get out of county for two fucking weeks. In the meantime, because he needs meds, he was taken to the ER while in lockup in leg irons and shackles. Leg irons and shackles are you kidding me? The system is pitting the law abiding citizen against police to create this madness. After a week he did receive an apology from the SA but that did him no good.

RIP

Keith Ratliff loved guns. He built his own rifles. He kept bullets in his car’s cup holder. And on the rear window he slapped a sticker of the Starbucks Coffee mermaid firing two pistols. “I ♥ Guns and Coffee,” it read.

But last week, the authorities said, Mr. Ratliff, 32, ended up on the wrong end of a gun. The police in northeast Georgia found him dead at his office on Jan. 3, shot once in the head. He was surrounded by several guns, but not the one that killed him. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is treating it as a homicide.

Ratliff was known as an outspoken gun advocate. In a message posted to Twitter on Aug 11, 2012, he wrote: "I went to the movies with my pistol in my pocket the whole time I was praying that somebody would try to pull a Batman!"

Not the Judge's fault. The Judge gave him 6 years, it was Quinn who let him out after 18 months.

It makes sense to get rid of Sgt rank and create a corparal rank for less money . Assign Sgts as district station supervisor , Lts as district and unit commanders and maybe cpd will be able to continue paying our pensions .
XO rank should be Capt pay but assigned as area deputy , etc.

Someone has to be held accountable for these felons who serve so little of the time they were sentenced. They should be sued by the family and victims .... Hit them in their own wallet and assets, let them feel the pain for their stupid liberal decisions.

008 has a video officer? What is that and how does one apply? Where I work we don't even have rapid cars up most days/afternoons

1/11/2013 12:06:00 PM

Yes we do...and it is not a joke. The guy is an absolute computer pro and has come up with a whole system to make videos from crime scenes available to the officers in 008. He gets called out by all the detective divisions to work on big cases and track down video from the neighborhoods where things happen. MC is an asset to this department doing something that most of us can't or things that the inept people from Homan Square won't. This was one of McNaughton's things that he broght from 016 with him...and it is working out well. Got to give him this one.

So if posting the names and addresses of legal gun owners is OK, where is the public notice of parolees, their crime, the sentence, the time they served and their criminal history published in the paper?

I am not a Rhodes Scholar but I do know how to cut the number of Homicides in half in Cook County. Farm out all the Cook County Judges and States Attorneys to Lake, McHenery, Kane, Dupage and Will Counties and bring the Judges and States Attorneys from these counties to Cook. Our neighboring county Dupage, did not experience 1 Homicide all of last year because the States Attorney prosecutes the law to the fullest extent allowable and the Judges sentence the convicted to the fullest extent of the law. The judges from Dupage and the surrounding counties also do not let violent criminals back out on bond only to wreak more havoc or possibly death. This alone, I believe, would cut the number of Homicides by 20%.
Start conducting judicial reviews to ensure that judges are following sentencing guidelines and bail guidelines. Start looking at the way things are done in Dupage County. Start a legislative movement for truth in sentencing so offenders do 85% of their sentence instead of the brief “time out” that they are given in Cook County. If that is not enough of a deterrent start looking at tougher sentences for your voters. If you need to build more prisons then build them instead of closing them or selling them to the federal government. Also get a study going that tracks the violent crimes committed by all the violent prisoners released early under Governor Quinn.
Is it possibly that the legislators, the governor, Mayor Emmanuel, Eric Holder and president Obama are trying to push the carnage (murders and shootings) to an all-time high, sacrificing the countless murder and shooting victims and the pain and hardship inflicted on their families to further their agenda, the abolishment of the second amendment? It is time that you start representing the people that pay your salary rather than the people who make Cook County deadlier than Afghanistan.

Im not a fan of McNutty in 008. In fact he has destroyed the district. An entire watch has laid down and he is making fast enemies with the other two watches. However the "video Guy" thing has actually worked in 008. Not stopping crime obviously but it has had great success in catching a lot of people that otherwise might not have been caught atleast as soon as they were.

If anyone should start studying, it's whoever posted this. Old list stays up until the new list is up. If you think both parts of the test will be given to 9,000+ and scored before at least 2 more sgts classes are made off the current list, you're a moron. A new list won't be up until the beginning of 2014 at the earliest.

SCC, you might want to consider that you yourself are a member of the media. You didn't start that way, granted, but the huge audience you have built and the credibility you have earned means that large numbers of Chicagoans and others turn to you regularly to get the straight story on what happened---in other words, the news. Perhaps you might change your frequent (and typically justified) criticism of "the media" to the downtown media---because they are the ones, the elites from Lincoln Park, etc. but who are, frankly, as bought-and-sold as any alderman ever was, and who typically fail (on purpose, mind you) to connect the dots.

"He does not get out of county for two fucking weeks."

That isn't even enough time to figure out whether it's day or night in there.

"In the meantime, because he needs meds, he was taken to the ER while in lockup in leg irons and shackles."

1/11/2013 03:06:00 PM

They didn't take him to Cermak Memorial Hospital on the jail grounds? Hm. Yes, if he was driven off the facility he was shackled. S.O.P. People are very often cuffed 2-by-2 even walking from one place to another inside the fence.

As you relate it, this IS nuts, though. I sympathize.

Be careful yelling for this law, that law, people. This motherf__er is a one-size-fits-all arrangement, and that means you if you run afoul of it and don't have money, if you get a crazy judge as above, get caught up in a prosecution go-hard trend, etc.

We have all the laws we need and more, we just live in an upside-down society.

What can you say when this Hughes idiot, "Batman" who shot up the Colo. movie theater, his lawyers today got two months just to figure out what they're going to plead.

Not a cop. But a eyewitness to this madness. Nephew got picked up for a 10 year old warrant while getting his rap sheet. Come to find out, his lazy probation officer did not process it correctly. Nephew was arrested at 1pm on a Friday. Cops said not their fault we must arrest him. Fine, I am expecting to pay a minor bond and take him home. He has not been in trouble for 10 years, zero arrests, working, and on the straight and narrow. No bond the judge screams the next morning. He does not get out of county for two fucking weeks. In the meantime, because he needs meds, he was taken to the ER while in lockup in leg irons and shackles. Leg irons and shackles are you kidding me? The system is pitting the law abiding citizen against police to create this madness. After a week he did receive an apology from the SA but that did him no good. Just to let you guys know how fucked this system is but then again that is why this blog is great at times.
