Arrests in Murder

And once again, the only thing Special Ed that has said that makes sense, rears its head again:
  • Derren Sorrells, 22, and Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, were charged Sunday with first-degree murder and attempted murder. Cook County Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered both held without bail, saying they were a danger to society.

    [...]

    Both Sorrells brothers are convicted felons who were on parole at the time of the shooting — prime examples of the judicial system's inability to stop habitual offenders, Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at a Sunday news conference.

    "This tragedy isn't just noteworthy because Ms. Aldridge has a famous family member," Johnson said. "Rather, it shows that the cycle of arrests, convictions and parole isn't changing the behavior of those who repeatedly commit crimes.
And what had they been charged with that led to their early release?
  • Darwin Sorrells, of the 7500 block of South Wentworth Avenue, served three years in state prison for 2013 convictions of receiving, possessing or selling a stolen vehicle and for unlawful use or possession of a firearm by a felon, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records. He was paroled in early February.

    He was convicted in 2011 of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was sentenced to five years on that charge. He also has felony convictions from 2007 for aggravated battery in a public place and aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.

    Derren Sorrells, of the 6000 block of South Indiana Avenue, served four years in state prison for 2012 convictions of possession of a stolen vehicle and violating the terms of his electronic monitoring. He was paroled Aug. 12, according to the IDOC website.
Gee, someone on parole again?

Someone posted in the comment section that this was Darwin's SIXTH gun arrest. And the "day-for-day" credits that result in a mere 50% of a sentence being served really has to stop. Repeat gun offenders should be headed to Federal Court at every opportunity with no exceptions, with a floor of ten years in prison and a third strike provision resulting in a life sentence.

And Special Ed uttered the second truth of his tenure:
  • When asked about the difference in solving Aldridge's killing within days compared with the overwhelming majority of homicides that don't end in arrests, Johnson pointed to the community as being more cooperative because of to the high-profile nature of the case.

    "You know why we captured them right away? Because the community helped us with it," Johnson said. "Police officers very rarely witness crime, especially murder or aggravated battery with a firearm. … We take every death in Chicago seriously, but we need the community's help to bring these cases to a successful resolution."
Nice job to all involved.

From a citizen reader: This entire matter is the PRECKWINKLE EFFECT. If you believe as Toni there are too many black crminals in jail and they should be out, then you are in part responsible for this sad story and you are NOT one of the ten movers and shakers in Cook County as mentioned in a stupid Chicago Magazine similarly titled. (She was number one)

If you have criminals on parole, supervision, bond, ankle monitoring, who are fugitives, you live and deal with the kind of violence the aforementioned bring to the community. Or you die as this poor woman did. The Sorrell brothers are as reported career criminals and look how they are treated. They belong as career inmates in DOC except in Cook County, the police arrest them and then justice goes to hell in the Cook County justice system thanks to the Preckwinkle Effect. This has to change from Toni Preckwinkle through the ranks of the courts down to the States Attorney, all Cook County rackets.

The police have done their job over and over again but it is the County that drops the ball. The only good thing is they again bring the Sorrell bothers to justice with the help of security camera evidence and some witnesses who dropped a dime. Yes, snitching. Another way to clean up the community but I can see when the County justice system fails, how dangerous it is for snitching. I guess it is also a good thing the Sorrell brothers gave it up and some policeman did not have to drop a cap on these princes of the city. Thank you Chicago Police, another great job.

Thank you to the Illinois Parole Review Board who are also responsible for bringing crime to the community. And finally, thanks to the Madigan family for failing to set up statutes that address the kind of people who are career criminals like the Sorrell brothers. Funny, other than some of the cops, all democrats in the whole process. Who again is the law and order candidate, Trump or Mrs. Clinton?

I'd love to see a real investigative reporter take a close look at the management company in charge of Parkway Gardens (O-Block) at 63/MLK. It's a fully-subsidized housing complex (700 units) that just got a $100mil renovation in 2013 (and because it's on the National Register of Historic Places part of that was paid with federal tax credits). It would be interesting to see just how outside of their HUD contract they're operating - there's no way they're performing background checks on renters, for one. The O-Block Twitter feed alone should be a flag, let alone these two who were 'protecting' their turf.

One question and a comment from a NON officer:
Question: How in the heck did they find these two so quick when it seems that most shootings/killings go unsolved? I would venture to GUESS that the neighborhood people actually COOPERATED with the police (because Wayde is a star/hero to them) unlike "everyday" shootings when "nobody saw nothing".

Comment: I heard on the news (WLS Radio) this morning that the one killer with the ankle bracelet wasn't wearing it because people who are court ordered to wear one can TAKE IT OFF for up to 6 hours at a time. If that is true, then all is truly lost....

While Dems are hammering that guns are being brought in from Red State Indiana, what they don't mention is who and why the folks shoot or get shot.
The overlooked fact of no swift punishments, lenient judges and prosecutors, no police power and a pandering mayor makes target practice a nonchalant ghetto activity that is expected. So easy and frequent that daylight is no longer a deterrent.
Maybe this Wade case will gather a news event at the trial like the Hudson murders (wait for the targeted victim to be a no-show).
But then again, the Brothers Sorrell had no Intent and Acted Extremely Careless.
It's a precedence set by a highly publicized former Chicagoan.
It's truly the Chicago Way™.
And an empty Jail makes for a huge patronage budget for the Friends of PrickWrinkles too.

Ankle bracelet under IDOC used to be "no movement." Person had to call in and ask permission to go anywhere at all, was given a fixed time period to get there that made no allowance for use of public transportation, late buses, &c., then had to call in from the wireline phone of the place at their destination. Even going to the parole office itself for something was a major project.

"Looking for a job?" S__t. You would have had to call them and give them the name of the employer, they would verify it and then give permission to go there and only there and straight back.

Power went out in storm, person walked past metal that blocked signal (aluminum siding, anything) and the phone would be ringing right away. Had to recite a certain line to them -- name, IDOC number, etc. the same way every time for voice recognition. Battery on the thing started running down, threatening phone calls at all hours until they finally sent some "technician" who hardly knew + from - to fix it.

This was for older, low-risk first offender. Look at how it runs today for known gang members with repeat violent felonies, "Chicago's very own" Street Life Brothers. "Out the door from 8 to 4?"

What the hell did they DO here? Unbelievable.

Never heard of that one before. The ones I know about are tamperproof, put on and they (should) stay on for the duration of the supervision. Not like a wristwatch, there is no buckle! Other security features as well.

Of course, any real hardhead can just cut the thing off and go run wild, but that will set it off.

...but why bother if they are allowed to run loose all day long anyway? One of these characters had a previous parole violation already, exactly for violating the terms of the electronic monitoring, but he STILL apparently got this break.

Unreal.

I have seen party pictures posted to the Web, bangers with bandannas over their faces, blunts, booze, and guns, and one leg of their sweats pulled up to show the bracelet, show how bad they are. Somehow, I don't think they're taking any of this seriously.

$100 million dollars to spruce up Death City.

Caracas, Rio have favelas this bad, but they get them without spending a nickel. No sewage system, no running water, and some spots really do have "community policing;" separate little forces run by the government in theory, but in reality just extensions of the drug gangs, funneling weapons and equipment to them and being paid by them.

I guess that's what BLM is after here.

"The O-Block Twitter feed alone should be a flag..."

Hundreds milling around on a hot night -- always gets me how the grass vanishes down to bare packed dirt, $100 million or no -- waiting for something to bust loose.

WLS gave out bad information. The bands used by IDOC cannot be removed without cutting. However, someone can leave on unauthorized movement for about 7 hours before a warrant is issued and if he comes back into "range" before the warrant is issued the clock gets reset. Even if a warrant is issued it is standard practice to divert the warrant And the crook gets a free ride home. I don't think IDOC has ever pressed charges on crooks that "cut and run". If you had any idea how many warrants got diverted you would be dumbstruck.

Trump will state the obvious; you solve the problem by locking up criminals and do not allow them on the street. Or in the White House. Revoke paroles and lock them up. Keep them locked up, no more parole. No more 50/50 time served and then parole. Strengthen laws, sentencing and the bench and States Attorney offices. Beef up the prison system and get tough with the people you need to be tough with. Judges who do not deal with criminals forcefully like that Luckman are finished on the bench. Spend the money to keep criminals locked up. We have already spent money raising many of them. The solution to the problem of street crime in this city is so simple its on the tip of your nose. Look for it. I do not like Trump but it is time for something different and if he does not cut it, he is fired in four years. But I think the change may be worth the gamble.
