The Graybar Hotel Is Overbooked

Okay, Rahm and Gerry.  You want manmims for illegal gun possession?

Where are you going to put ’em?

Illinois state prisons are so overcrowded that those convicted of murder two are sometimes out within a single digit number of years.  A combination of Illinois’s budget problems and the Federal courts have meant that the state has no choice but to do this.  About the only kind of convicts who will do their full bit are those convicted of murder one, which is now a straight life sentence in Illinois, now that they’ve tabled the death penalty.  This is why the U.S. Attorneys are getting creative and using the Hobbs Act to send garden variety armed robbers in Illinois (including the Metro East) to Federal prison, because if they were strung up and sentenced by the state, they may not actually do any prison time at all.

The Cook County jail is so overcrowded and such a clusterfuck that it’s one major scandal away from the Federal courts taking over, letting a bunch of inmates out, and sending ole Dodge Dart out to pasture.

As far as Rahm’s weed plans — The truth of the matter is that what he wants is pretty much the way it is.  The Cook County State’s Attorney and her ASAs are so overworked in trying to prosecute all the real violent crime in Cook County and Chicago that they don’t have time to string everyone up who has a little bit of weed.  The CPD doesn’t care about you smoking weed because they’re on the way to scraping up the next body off the pavement.

Chuy blames Rahm, Rahm blames Chuy, Garry blames guns, activists blame Garry, but the ook is beyond reproach.  Meanwhile, it looks like they’ve figured out that nobody is going to help them, they’ll have to help themselves.  And not a moment too soon.

Illinois jail escape: Convicted murderer overpowers guard, drives off in his SUV

A man recently convicted of murder overpowered an Illinois correctional officer early Wednesday morning, took his keys and uniform, then fled the jail in the officer’s vehicle, a local sheriff’s office said.

Kamron T. Taylor was awaiting sentencing when he escaped from the Jerome Combs Detention Center around 3 a.m. (4 a.m. ET) on Wednesday, according to the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office.

He took off in the officer’s brown 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and “is considered armed and dangerous,” the Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities urged people to call 911 if they spot Taylor or the SUV, which has an Illinois license plate.

The 23-year-old fugitive — who weighs about 170 pounds and stands 5 feet, 9 inches tall — is wanted for aggravated battery to a correctional officer as well as escape, the Sheriff’s Office said on its website.

That’s right, let’s get outraged that the murderer is now wanted for aggravated battery to a CO and escape.

Ordinarily, he’d have nothing to lose, because someone who’s going to be at least a lifer has nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying to make a run for it.  But this is Illinois, where it’s not uncommon for those convicted of Murder Two to be out in seven years.  Why would you want to risk it, get caught, and get an extra month tacked on to your bit?

Attorney General announces task force to boost rape prosecutions

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan on Tuesday announced the creation of a task force to improve investigations and prosecutions of rape.

There is a “systemic structural breakdown” in the way sex crimes are investigated and prosecuted, Madigan said. “We have a legal and moral obligation to fix this system.”

Expect stuck pig squealing from the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus very shortly.

The main reason gun laws in Illinois aren’t worse isn’t because of the ISRA, but the ILBC.

I have a really hard time being mad at him.

I don’t see that much difference between this and Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen and their legal counterfeiting “making it rain” on Wall Street.

I’m glad the FBI is finally catching up to all these white Illinois National Guard farm boys and their terrorist ways.

Oh wait…

Is ISIS really getting that desperate that they’re resorting to ^THIS?^

Idea:  Let ’em go.  In fact, encourage Africanus Americanus Bellcurvius that ISIS is where they really need to be.  It’ll be a double bank shot for us:  They’ll be out of our hair, and they’ll screw up ISIS.

Because, win-win.

Cops raid the Brooklyn PD.

In related news, an ER doc was admitted to the emergency room, and my accountant is being audited.

Yes, in case you’re wondering:  Brookyln, Illinois is Bell Curve City.
