Chicago’s Recipe for More Crime

JusticeBecause keeping violent criminals in jail would be unfair. Man with long history of trouble along Red Line is charged with violent robbery on Jackson platform.

Roderrick K. Sims racked up eight separate arrests near the Red Line downtown last year. And he was supposed to be on electronic monitoring while awaiting trial for one of those incidents when he allegedly skipped bail and brutally attacked a 37-year-old man with four other offenders around 10:50 p.m. on Nov. 29.

So how do you get more crime. Ignore crime when it happens (or after the fact).

Between July 5 and Nov. 26, Sims was arrested and charged with new crimes three separate times. And judges released him on his own recognizance each time.

On July 17, he was charged with battering people at the Starbucks, 42 East Chicago. The charges were later dropped.
