Never Gets Old

A halfway decent law-and-order type could make a decent run based on these stories alone:
  • Father-and-son felons were each given $1 million bonds Saturday following a spat between neighbors that turned into a car chase and shooting that left a neighbor woman critically injured, authorities said.

    Fred Brown, 46, appeared next to his son, Calvin McClendon, 27, during a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building in connection to an early Friday morning shooting in the 10600 block of South State Street in the Roseland neighborhood. Each is charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery.

    Judge Donald Panarese Jr. handed down the high bonds after hearing that both father and son had multiple felony gun convictions. The charges come less than a month after McClendon was released from the Shawnee Correctional Center on parole for a 2015 charge of felon in possession of a firearm, after he served 418 days in custody as part of a three-year sentence, according to state records.
Of course, this is Illinois, so actually being tough on crime might be a hindrance.

"The Police are the problem in Chicago!
Once we can make them "accountable"
to the community by reforming them
as hard and fast as possible, we'll
FINALLY be able to fix them. Right?"

Seems like this would be enough to revoke your parole?
I guess not in Cook County

The father and son do not have the same last names. The problem begins there.

Roseland. What a shame. This was once a beautiful area. Gone but not forgotten.

Criminals and illegal aliens are the most cherished people in Chicago.

Let's see

Three years equals 1095 days

He did 418

That's under 40% of his sentence

Probably about 37-38%

For a felony UUW

But we need more gun laws

The only gun law we need is a law that forces judges to give proper sentences and a law that forces the system to keep them for the duration of that sentence

All gun cases should be in federal court.

But but but keeping them in prison COSTS MONEY and and and democrats 9and republicans who act just like me) have illegal aliens to spend tax money on, perfectly healthy bodies who WON'T work to give housing, link and cash subsidy NOT TO MENTION FREE HEALTHCARE to and bloated civil service union workers to pay!!! Priorities baby! SO tell them coppers to be more productive, you know, more positive revenue minded!

I gotta ask, how much of this foolishness will there be before even the most dense finally understand that government is not doing what it is supposed to be doing because it spends so much time energy and resources doing things it is specifically NOT supposed to be doing at all?

Illinois ended the Death Penalty - when what is should have done is actually impose it more to make room for those who no longer get paroled (because parole is finally ended as a FAILED idea that it is). Forget the 80% truth in sentencing compromise. We must end parole altogether - REAL truth in sentencing. If ya get four years, well, see ya in four years. If ya get 20, well, sorry about yer luck, cu you got 20 years, not tenon day for day and paroled in 5. Enough is enough.

ALLEGEDLY was missing from the story, which usually is always reported. Wonder why they omitted that?
No questions from the media on why violent criminals are being sent home early from prison.

"Judge Donald Panarese Jr. handed down the high bonds after hearing that both father and son had multiple felony gun convictions."
So what is the Hon. Judge Panarese Jr. going to do about it ?
Start advocating for some law changes or sentencing changes, query his boss Tim Evans?

Chicago Values at its best.

Too many black and brown men in prison, so let them out... Per Preck and Dart, yet they are causing 95% of the gun related shootings and deaths. Reality and fact.

Don't hold your breath anything will change in this state. After all these criminals come from the same Liberal Democrat voter base that keeps electing uncaring conniving self serving Democrat politicians every election.

The politicians found a way to lower crime rate. Legalize everything. If nothing is against the law there cannot be crimes. God can't wait to get away from this Crook Co terminally Ill inois
