Again with the Parolees
- A man released on parole last year has been charged with a shooting that left a 17-year-old girl dead and a woman injured in south suburban Harvey last month.
Chase Holden, 30, was charged Friday with first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to Harvey spokesman Sean Howard.
About 10:30 p.m. Feb. 17, a man police later identified as Holden knocked at the door of an apartment at 14626 S. Halsted St. and asked about drugs, Howard said. A few minutes later, eight bullets were fired into the apartment.
Isn't using, buying, trafficking in drugs a violation of parole? How about having a gun after a felony conviction? And murder, we're pretty sure that is against the law, too. You know who doesn't seem to murder anyone with any sort of regularity? People housed in prisons. Sure it happens sometimes, but not as often as it seems parolees manage to.
