Some time in 2012, he stabbed her in the neck, and got sent to prison.
She took him back when he got out, and this past August, he assaulted her again. How, this doesn’t say. But back to the can with him.
He gets out, she takes him back again. This time…
This is definitely in Tommy Sotomayor’s wheel house.
Sail foam, East St. Louis, MetroLink, Toddeshia and Shontice.
One was from the north side, one was from the south side, and one was from ESL. So you have an odd far-flung geographical confluence of ooks for the purpose of attacking a man to steal his sail foam. Which means only one thing: They met up because they deliberately wanted to try Apple picking, except the phone they stole was a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Boot camp less effective than prison for gun offenders: study
Gun offenders sentenced to boot camp are more likely to be rearrested than those sent to prison, a new analysis suggests.
Boot camp is intended to reduce the chance of inmates committing new crimes after they are released. Inmates can learn job skills and obtain a GED in the military-style setting.
But an analysis conducted for Chicago Sun-Times showed a higher percentage of people convicted of gun possession in 2011 were rearrested after they completed boot camp than those released from prison.
About 57 percent of the inmates sentenced to county boot camp for gun possession were arrested for a new crime within a year of their release — compared with about 38 percent of those who were released from state prison.
Almost 8 percent of the boot camp inmates were arrested for a violent crime within a year of their release — compared with less than 5 percent of the inmates sent to prison, according to a University of Chicago Crime Lab analysis of Chicago Police Department arrest data.
The crime lab cautioned against drawing strong inferences from the data because of the small sample size. The analysis included 63 people sent to boot camp for gun possession and 464 sent to state prison for the same crime.
Maybe this whole hoopla over “boot camp” is because everyone assumes that since military boot camp turns 18-year old recruits who are already relatively disciplined into straight arrow military personnel, that it will turn 15-year old gang banger thug ghetto blacks into first world white people with dark skin.
John Maki, executive director of the John Howard Association, a prison watchdog group, said he is strongly opposed to boosting mandatory minimums for gun offenders.
“The overwhelming consensus on mandatory minimums is they don’t work,” he said. “The way you do this is through better policing.”
Law enforcement is a paper tiger without the credible possibility of real punishment. You can have the best policing in the world, but if you’re not actually going to punish anyone the cops who do the world’s best policing arrest, then you’ve wasted the world’s best policing.
This is over this bill circulating in the Illinois legislature that would plop a three year man min for certain categories of illegal gun possession. A lot of the opposition to it is coming from CCW advocates thinking that the bill is an attempt on the sly on the part of carry opponents to discourage carrying, in that if someone who carries commits a ticky tack technical offense, it’ll mean three years. I think there’s some truth to that. The problem is that Illinois state prisons are always facing overcrowding issues — Early in his time as Governor, Pat Quinn let a whole lot of prison inmates loose. Enact this law and the state prisons will be so filled to the gills with Chicago blacks and downstate blacks that the Federal courts will surely intervene.
It’s now national news, but Illinois Review broke it.
“But white voters would never vote for a black President.” Fine by me. The problem is that not enough white voters would never vote for a black President.
And this is supposed to be biographical literature suitable for fourth graders. When I look at it, it looks like kiddie material. When I was in the fourth grade, or actually toward the end of fourth grade, because the book I’m about to mention came out in March 1987, and it was one of my 10th birthday presents, I was reading White Rat by Whitey Herzog and Kevin Horrigan, a book that is mostly the former’s autobio. Earlier that school year, I got through My Turn At Bat, Ted Williams’s autobio written in 1969, just when he was starting what would be only a short stint managing the Washington Senators, in their last years in D.C. before moving to Dallas to become the Texas Rangers. Both books were hardly from the kiddie section of the bookstore.
Quinn’s choice for a new running mate going into next year. Paul Vallas, former supernintendo of the Chicago Public Schools and many other districts, IOW, a career educrat.
I wonder what Quinn thinks he brings to the table politically.
Before now, the primaries for Governor and Lieutenant Governor in Illinois were discrete but the winners of those were hooked at the hip in the general election cycle as an inseparable ticket. Now, candidates for Governor will choose their running mate before the campaigning officially starts.
“A disturbing case is under investigation in Fairmont City that apparently revolves around a freshman high school girl, a group of boys, alcohol and a sexual attack. The alleged incident happened Saturday night.”
And who lives in Fairmont City?
I’ll give you a hint: All those comprehensive people that are here to do the jobs that Americans won’t do.
Why is this man smiling?
He’ll get out when he’s 81 years old.
Whatever makes him happy.
Her whole case against the club is that they “only” had three security guards for as many as 100 people who were on the premises. At that same ratio, St. Louis would have to have 9,600 cops, when in reality it has 1,400, and even that is a high cop-to-population ratio by major city standards.
What does she want? SEAL Team Six providing security at ESL nightclubs?
Imagine all the good that $90K could have done. But Monsanto takes it out and cash and burns it.
All snark aside, these are K-3 students, and they’ll probably do okay. But then the math will get just a little bit harder, and then they’ll be lost.
But don’t worry, it’s the “Of Mexico” variety, not the “Of Nazareth” variety.
No bother, though, if you’re worried about his academic future. There’s at least one college that’ll take him.
Yeah, I don’t like naming judges. But I’m mobile, on a business trip, so I’ll just have to wing it.
Miss Cunningham here is said to have the nickname “Net.” Well, I’m calling out the bingo number N-60, N for Net, and 60 for the bid she’s going to get.
I’m betting on the employee also being at least a part owner of the store, and he’s Indian (dot, not feather) or something like that.
And of course the doers are ooks.
Therefore, racial hate crime.
That said, now that the business operations of “Royal Beauty Supply” in the royal dump of ESL have been brought to a screeching halt, all of ESL’s queens will have to find somewhere else to get dolled up
A rifle round in a locker room has leaders at Edwardsville High School asking questions.
A student reportedly found the live bullet in the boys’ locker room.
That student immediately alerted school administrators, who then called police. Officers conducted a thorough search of the area to see if there was a weapon nearby. They did not find one.
Chief Keeven believes the bullet was probably intended for hunting or target shooting. It is a round for a rifle – not a handgun.
Authorities said the student likely did not mean to bring it to school or to drop it.
School officials are still working to identify who the bullet belongs; then they’ll decide whether any punishment is necessary.
I’m ashamed to say that I called Edwardsville home in 2010.
Of course there will be punishment, this is Wussiemerica 2013. Even if they can’t make the specific student that did it, they’ll collectively punish all the white boys.
Mothers throwing their sons out of the house is a noted problem in the bell curve community, but it usually doesn’t happen this soon in the son’s life.
Of course, you can use the comment section below to say all the mean things I’m thinking but am too chicken to say.
Belleville OKs controversial crime-free housing ordinance
Belleville resident Lee Otis Griffin said the ordinance discriminates against black residents and will present lots of problems down the road for the city. He made yet another plea for the city to hire more black employees.
And that indicates the Catch-22 of the matter. Either the ordinance will be ineffective, in which case it was just for show all along, or it will be effective, and the DOJ will sue.
The Feds are now serious about using the Hobbs Act as an angle to make Federal objects out of armed robberies. In the case of Southern Illinois and Illinois in general, the motivation is to circumvent swing-the-prison-doors-open governors like Pat Quinn, I think. But it also says that this program has been deployed in Philadelphia and is being deployed in Milwaukee.
Now I think the motivation for this is that the Feds are merely reclaiming possession of their pets that they foisted on us a long time ago. That and maybe they think they can deter armed robberies by broadcasting the notion that those convicted of it will be sent across the country for 10-20 years too far away for any of their relatives to visit, just like they’ve done in recent years for felon-in-possession raps.
I also think that we’re eventually headed toward the Federalization of the crime of murder, using the interstate transportation of the firearm used in the murder as the Federal jurisdiction hook. Maybe that wouldn’t be such a bad thing: The Feds have the death penalty, many states do not.
A dispute over a can of soup. Probably neither one of them knows how to open it.
Seinfeld had the Soup Nazi, and I guess Belleville has the Soup Negroes.
H/T a reader on the East Side.
But if you see him…For God’s sake, don’t pursue him. Especially if you’re a white Hispanic.
Obama’s geographical confusion has become habitual. He once claimed that he had been to all “57 states.” He also assumed that Kentucky was closer to Arkansas than it was to his adjacent home state of Illinois.
That would be a surprise to those St. Louisans who do the St. Louis to Nashville drive often, which takes us on Interstate 24 across the Ohio River from Metropolis, Illinois to Paducah, Kentucky.
When Obama won the Democrat nomination for U.S. Senate in Illinois in March 2004, his first campaign stop a few days later to kick off the general election cycle, which wouldn’t heat up until the fall, was in East St. Louis, on the east bank of the river directly across from the Arch grounds. He reportedly told the local media that that was the first time he ever saw the St. Louis Arch with his own eyes in person. So here you go — He wanted to represent that state in the Senate, but never set foot in really any of it south of Springfield before he won the Democrat nomination for Senate. I’m sure even before then that his own state had cities in it like East St. Louis. But as far as anything south of, say, Mount Vernon, that might as well have been on Mars.
ISP drags a net through the bellcurvey parts of the Metro East and predictably hauls in a bundle of criminal ooks.
St. Clair County’s top prosecutor Thursday detailed results of a three-month “Operation Wild, Wild East” that he said exposed four Metro East cities as “failed states,” unable to stop open drug dealing near churches, schools and public housing.
In announcing charges against 58 suspected drug dealers, State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly said the “state of lawlessness” in East St. Louis, Washington Park, Alorton and Brooklyn is due in part to overwhelmed and poorly trained police departments.
The “state of lawlessness” in those places is due entirely to the state of its racial demographics. If their PDs are to blame, it’s only because they have the same demographics as their cities’ resident populations.
I don’t know much about this ATF program, so I can’t speak to it for sure. I’m sure someone reading these words can fill in the rest of the blanks for me. But if there’s a reason why LEAs aren’t using it, I have an idea why they aren’t:
Consider where Durbin spoke today. Consider the racial demographics of both its police department and its civilian population. Black cops are cops, but they’re also black, and I’m sure they think that if they run seized guns through this ATF data, it will result in their sons, nephews and cousins going to Federal prison. Illegal alien Hispanics may not be in the shadows, but black thugs and ‘bangers want to stay there as long as possible.
Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is running for Comptroller in 2014.
Why isn’t she running for Lieutenant Governor again?
Answer: She has read the tea leaves and figured on Pat Quinn being toast, either in the primary or in the general. Remember, in Illinois, the candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor run in discrete primary elections, but the partisan winners of those are joined at the hip in a ticket in the general election cycle. But Simon did not win the Democrat nomination for Lt. Gov. in 2010; some shady character did, the party put the screws on and made him drop out after he won, and as the Democrat Gubernatorial nominee, Pat Quinn had the right to hand pick the replacement nominee, and he picked Paul Simon’s daughter. I think Simon figures on Bill Daley beating Quinn in the primary for Governor, and she doesn’t want to be hooked at the hip with Daley for some reason.
