We Should Make It Illegal for a Felon to Have a Gun. Oh, Wait a Minute…

I’m shocked to discover that criminals don’t obey the law. OK, not that shocked. Parolee with burglary conviction accused of several armed robberies on Near West Side.

Suggs was released on parole in December following a burglary conviction, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections. Other convictions include aiding, abetting, possessing or selling a stolen motor vehicle; manufacturing or delivery of cannabis; and an additional burglary, IDOC said.

Is parole mandatory, or is there some process to decide who does, and who doesn’t get parole?

When officers caught up with him, they learned Suggs was wanted on an active warrant for earlier alleged crimes on the Near West Side last month.

Wouldn’t that crime from last month have been a violation of that parole? The Criminal Justice System (and by that I mean the State’s Attorneys office) seems to be broken in Cook County and Chicago.
