Chicago police plan to arrest teens or send them home on trains if disorderly conduct, violence continues downtown. More cops on duty this weekend.

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-chicago-downtown-safety-20211210-pl25jtl6vnc5tdmc6ld5cgvqrm-story.html

Twenty young people were arrested Dec. 4 downtown for disorderly conduct, battery and reckless conduct, and another nine young people were issued curfew violations, Brown said.

Wow... curfew violations! That will teach them. I'm sure those kids are shaking in their boots.

After last weekend, the city learned that parents have been dropping off children as young as 12 years old downtown without adult supervision, Brown said. “But that is not the role of police to babysit people’s kids,” Brown said.

Naw, the city the knew about this a long, long, time ago.

Chicago aldermen also advanced their own plan this week to levy an additional property tax on Magnificent Mile businesses, with part of the money going toward safety improvements.

When all else fails, raise taxes?

Speaking of poetic justice, that lying piece of trash Jussie Smollet got what he had coming to him on that verdict, hopefully they make the sentencing sting.  Nothing right about hiring two people to beat your ass and getting caught on camera doing it trying to trigger a race and gender war since he's a gay black guy trying to play the victim card.

‘What have I done?’ Juror in Broward murder case says anger, mistrust and accusations of racial bias led to hung jury, mistrial

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/crime/fl-ne-resiles-juror-speaks-20211210-xkayqv3zwzemfcr6mn2cfeetma-story.html

Dayonte Resiles killed Jill Halliburton Su by stabbing her to death and leaving her lifeless body in a bathtub in her Davie home — on that much, jurors could agree. But they couldn’t agree on a murder charge, according to the jury forewoman, because three members refused to sign off on a verdict that would send a young Black man to prison for the rest of his life...

She was convinced Resiles did not commit manslaughter on Sept. 8, 2014 — he committed murder. Manslaughter was not her verdict. “No,” she told the judge. She didn’t agree. Her answer prompted the judge to send the jury back to the deliberation room. Her fellow jurors were incensed, she recalled. “If I do leave here with friends, that would be great,” she recalled saying. “But at the end of the day, I’m not here to make friends. I’m here to give justice to Jill. This was about her.”

Seems to me if the person is clearly guilty of murder, all the evidence left no doubt, but you get a few assholes on a jury panel playing social games around race trying to water it down, to then end in a mistrial -- THOSE jurors should be put up on charges for something.  You don't get to say...well since that person is black we can't send them to jail for life because they're black.  Fuck that... guarantee you it was a white dude he'd have been finished. There needs to be some consequence to those behaviors.

Texas High School Football Player Allegedly Lured Outside by Teammates and Brutally Beaten

Reid Mitchell, 17, Ayden Holland, 17, and Logan Huber, 18, were arrested on charges of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury in the attack on 16-year-old Cole Hagan, according to an affidavit obtained by PEOPLE. Hagan was found unconscious and bleeding from the ears by paramedics outside a house party in Lake Jackson on Dec. 3. According to the affidavit, the teens allegedly confessed to luring the Brazoswood High School football player from the party by saying his truck had been damaged. Once outside, he was then allegedly punched by Mitchell and knocked to the concrete. The four teens were teammates on the football team, the Star-Telegram reports. Hagan suffered from a fractured skull and multiple brain bleeds and was put on a ventilator in the ICU, the affidavit states.

Hopefully they will all be tried as adults. I'm sure the defense will say things like "misunderstanding... they're young... they had some weed...blah blah blah". They nearly killed this kid! I hope they have their little testicles chopped off.

@avatar! I know it's a dickish comment but I'm making it.  When I read stuff like this and some of your previous semi-similar ones with people being nearly killed if not taken out by others the old Islam rule of eye for an eye starts looking really appealing to me.  Sure it's not right, but if that started happening some people would think twice knowing they couldn't talk their way out of it into some cushy padded room or jail cell.

I lived in Harrisonburg for about 3 years. Gave me the chills when I heard the news.

What I find scary is that they really don't know how many serial killers there are in the country.  Some of them seem particularly adept at hiding bodies.

The FBI believes there are 25-50 active at any time but estimates of non-active ones go up into the low thousands.

The district attorney, Alvin Bragg, told prosecutors in his office in a memo that they should ask judges for jail or prison time only for the most serious offenses — including murder, sexual assault and economic crimes involving vast sums of money — unless the law requires them to do otherwise.

In a statement, the Detective’s Endowment Association, which represents 5,000 active police detectives in the city, said the changes would “undermine the ability of the police to make arrests that lead to reduction of crime.”

Bragg also set out a new policy on sentencing requests, saying that the office would request a maximum of 20 years in prison for all crimes that do not have a life-in-prison option. He also noted the office would never seek life without parole in any case.

And the new administration will strive to limit the number of young people tried as adults, which Bragg said evidence shows will lower recidivism rates and make communities safer.

Yeah, I think this is going to backfire spectacularly.

https://lawandcrime.com/caught-on-video/if-i-could-give-you-jail-time-i-would-michigan-judge-shames-72-year-old-cancer-patient-for-being-too-weak-to-maintain-lawn/

A judge in Michigan has come under fire after she publicly upbraided a 72-year-old cancer patient for failing to properly maintain upkeep on his yard despite medical treatments leaving him frail and weak. Judge Alexis G. Krot on Wednesday told Burhan Chowdhury that he should be “ashamed” that his yard was an eyesore during a video hearing, even saying she would have him put him behind bars if it were within her power, Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV-TV reported.

This judge is a piece of shite! I hope she gets recalled and fired for being an uncaring ass that should not be judging anything, anytime, anywhere.

Looks like a big part of the problem is the latter day catch and release policies.

Gunman's argument with mother over diet led to NYPD call, officer's killing, police say

https://www.yahoo.com/news/gunmans-argument-mother-over-diet-182000768.html

When the officers went to the back bedroom to talk to him, he emerged gripping a Glock 45 handgun with a high-capacity magazine that holds up to 40 rounds and opened fire...NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said McNeil had a criminal history that included a gun charge in North Carolina, an assault on a police officer in Pennsylvania and a felony narcotics charge in New York City. Essig said he was on probation.

Are you surprised that he had a long criminal record? Rhetorical question. The NYC DA, Alvin Bragg, is soft on crime, but I'm sure that has NOTHING to do with criminals being let out on the street that later kill people. Nope. Nothing, I mean come on, how can releasing a dangerous criminal possibly be a bad move? [end sarcasm]

https://nypost.com/2022/01/20/manhattan-da-alvin-bragg-stands-by-soft-on-crime-staff-memo/

Bragg also said his “Day One” staff memo — which directs prosecutors to drop some misdemeanor cases, not seek bail or prison time for most defendants and to downgrade certain felonies to misdemeanors — remained “operative.”

It never ceases to amaze me how STUPID people are! Portland was all about defund the police, and the hate and lack of leadership the police were shown was a travesty. Now that police have left in droves, crime is rampant, people are "yo! where are the police?!" well, they left for better pastures. Good luck Portland, it will take you years and years to recover from your stupidity. Also, you're far from the only city to see this, sadly.

A Kansas officer shot a girl while aiming at her dog. Can he claim self-defense immunity?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/kansas-officer-shot-girl-while-234507599.html

First off, the officer did NOT shoot her - freakin' BS reporting here. What happened was the bullet ricocheted and struck the girl. Fortunately she is fine.

Lower court rulings in favor of the officer have already been used as reasons not to charge other law enforcement officers in use-of-force cases...Dexter Betts responded to a domestic violence call. He shot at a dog, missed, and bullet fragments hit a girl who was in the line of fire.

Maloney conceded that Betts felt threatened, but he said the officer never articulated a fear of imminent death or great bodily harm, which is what justification for deadly force requires.

Since the ruling will apply outside of law enforcement scenarios, Biles said, the court should consider the effect on hypothetical scenarios. His example was a crowded concert where a person faces a reasonable threat. "If they've got a gun, they can just start shooting," Biles said of the statute. "And regardless of how many people drop, they're going to have immunity, as long as you can show the threat was there while the trigger's being pulled."

Betts fired two shots at the dog. Both bullets missed their mark. At least one ricocheted off the floor, and fragments hit a 9-year-old in a toe and above her eye. The girl had been sitting on the floor behind the dog. The miniature English bull terrier, named Chevy, was also hit by bullet fragments. "Here we are four years later," Hoeme said. "It's really easy for us to talk about ... he could have done this, he should have done that." The court took the case under advisement. A decision from the justices is likely several months away.

Mike Tyson said "Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth."

Chicago’s carjacking task force to be staffed 24 hours a day amid rise in violent crime

https://www.yahoo.com/news/chicago-carjacking-task-force-staffed-220900211.html

Over the past two years, Chicago has experienced major spikes in violent crime. The city recorded more than 800 homicides in 2021, its worst year in at least two decades.

Carjackings in Chicago rose about 135%, to 1,415 in 2020 from 603 in 2019, according to a Tribune review of police information. The 2020 tally was the highest figure recorded here since 2001, when Chicago logged only slightly more with 1,422, the city statistics show.

The department has found that half the arrests made in relation to stolen vehicles are teenagers and children under 18, some as young as 11, and many are repeat offenders.

“On it! I will call you back myself as soon as I get a break from meetings, but I have been worried about this, consistently asked about it, and was told by CPD that they had a collaborative plan with the burbs,” Lightfoot said in response. “I will make sure this gets renewed focus.”

In January 2021, South Side aldermen partnered with private security to watch gas stations — a program they called “Operation Safe Pump.” But despite their efforts, crime remains high. On Monday, Brown said the city wants to reduce carjackings to pre-pandemic levels.

In summary, here is Chicago

I will give them points for "Operation Safe Pump"! When your "program" sounds like a 70s porn film, you did something right. Or wrong 🙂

Bowser sentenced to 40-month prison sentence for video game crimes

https://www.engadget.com/gary-bowser-sentencing-220648450.html

A US federal court has sentenced Canadian hacker Gary Bowser to 40 months in prison for his involvement in Switch hacking group Team Xecuter, the Department of Justice announced on Thursday. Not to be confused with Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser (or Mario’s nemesis, for that matter), Bowser was part of a collective that developed and sold devices people could use to play pirated games on their consoles.
