100 Years is a Good Start

And hopefully, none of this "day for day" crap...this guy should die behind bars:
  • A man on parole who shot two police officers when they interrupted him during a drug transaction in the West Garfield Park neighborhood in 2011 was sentenced Monday to 100 years in prison, according to prosecutors and court records.

    Alvis Holley, 28, was convicted in September of two counts of attempted murder of a police officer. Cook Count Judge Nicholas Ford sentenced him Monday.

    About 10:45 p.m. July 18, 2011, the officers saw a narcotics deal in an alley on the 4000 block of West Wilcox Street. When they approached the alley, Holley, who was involved in the transaction, walked up to the passenger side of the police car, prosecutors said.

    Holley could not tell the officers what he was doing or where he lived, so he was told to put his hands on the hood of the police car. Instead, he began to fight with the officers, prosecutors said.
No idea why it took five years, but in the end, justice was done.

Hopefully, he will not be out in 18-24 months.

OT: Peace be to the officers involved in the N Lawndale shooting last night. Especially during these horrific times, your service is greatly appreciated.
Now for the remaining 1,299, go get 'em!
God Bless each of you brave souls.

He'll do 50 if we're lucky or maybe 20 then Maldonado can campaign to get him an early release.

Good luck to those coppers... I can't see the city bailing out on taking care of the disabled cop quoting some ObamaCare bullshit... I remember reading awhile ago the city was not paying a disabled cops rent. As for the asshole, you guys already know he will appeal the sentence

Thanks to Quinn and the rest of the do-gooders the death penalty is no more in Illinois, as this POS deserves it. Take note that Bernie Sanders does not believe in the death penalty no matter the crime.

The entire 4000 block of Wilcox should be burned down. The worst part of the story is that a selfless man of service no longer works the streets. Most of the block is involved in the narcotics operation. One of the last decent homeowners on that block had his property burned to the ground because the honor roll students thought he/she gave information to the police. These are the stories you won't see on tv. But remember, they're all A+ honor roll students about to become president.

Hey SCC. Any truth to the rumors that 35th street wants to move all Area North Detectives to Harrison and Kedzie, the old Area Four because get this, "this is where the crime is located." These people are unfrickenbelievable. No one thought closing two areas was a good Idea now they want to open Area Four back up but guess what not enough detectives to go around so let's move them from Belmont and Western to Harrison and Kedzie. Pure genius. There are under 300 detectives in Area North currently. Totally understaffed. Hold on boys and girls summer is going to be a wild ride.

Defendant is sitting in jail and in no hurry to go to trial. As someone else said, they hope that people die, move away, memories fade, evidence is lost. One continuance after another unless the judge stops it. Prosecutors move around and the new ones have to start over. It is a circus.The longest that I have seen a defendant sit in county jail awaiting his murder trial is 7 years.

Ask the defense attorney. Delays like that are typically at the behest of the defense.

Its been more than four years and we still haven't gone to trial in the shooting of Officer Del Pearson. He has to do 85%, not day to day. In Pearson's case they are hoping for 25 years and Pearson lost the use of his hand. The Judge is so anti-police its ridicules. The brass added insult to injury when nobody put him in for meritorious. Instead of taking care of real coppers, they take care of their pieces of ass. What a joke this job has become. Stay fetal!!!

Ask your legal friends to define the word, "term" as it applies to speedy trials.
Then subtract that from the five years and you have what your legal friends call "stalled". See the comment above yours. So there is some truth to that justice delayed shit.

If Sanders wins, by some miraculous means, we're really doomed. He's worse than Hillary, and I can't stand her. Sanders is a kiss-ass-wimp liberal.

Was in court for the sentencing. Sentence was enhanced because of the firearm used to shoot a po, judge stated he will do 85% of the 100 years

In Cook County these assholes think waiting the cases out will make people forget information or they get friends to intimidate witnesses. That is why murder cases are waited out for so long. Plus the ASA's are overworked and are willing to delay proceedings.

Most attorneys will delay a trial like this as long as they can, for a litany of reasons. Buying your client time can dim memories, or hunt those memories down and 'convince' them not to testify. Added time racks up the billing hours for the lawyers. That's five years your client isn't in jail (if they bonded out) and five years to build your case and find all the dirt you can on the victim officer(s).

Justice delayed is justice denied ONLY if it suits your agenda. Depends which side of the case you're on.

It took 5 years because the defendant in a criminal case, especially one as serious as this, will try any and everything to weasel out of actually being tried for his crimes. This includes asking for various continuances, filing multiple ridiculous motions, and just delaying the case to put it off as long as possible. The motions all attempt to get the defendant off on a technicality or suppress evidence, etc. Witnesses forget things as this time passes, which only helps the defendant. My question to you is how involved are your legal beagle friends in the law that they don't understand this? Justice delayed is justice denied, unless it's purposely delayed by the one seeking "justice." You have the right to a speedy trial,but most deliberately drag out the process as long as possible in order to manipulate the system in their favor. You effectively waive your right to a speedy trial if you keep pushing your trial further into the future by your own actions. If I go to the grocery store and decide to pay for $500 worth of groceries with pennies, I have no right to complain that the cashier took too long to check me out. If my ice cream melts, it's my fault.

Because you aren't allowed to serve justice upon the lawyers and we are not allowed to hang them from the light poles. So they lie. They suborn perjury. They pull out every dirty trick they can to get anyone; child molesters, killers and all manner of scum, off so that they get a "reputation" and they can charge the next guy even more. Other lawyers become judges and politicians. There is where you will find the biggest "code of silence".

Lawyers have no souls, and they are never held to count for their evil.

Part of the delay involves the fact that Chicago's finest arrested and sought charges for the WRONG person. After a long period of time passed, they discovered that they'd arrested/charged the wrong person. This error, of course, led to many motions. It's not always the State or the defense that cause the delays...
