This death will be explained away. Prosecutors: Boy fatally shot by man who was on “affordable bail” for gun charge.
An Englewood man is charged with fatally shooting a 15-year-old boy while free on a recognizance bond and electronic monitoring as he awaited trial for allegedly possessing a stolen handgun.
And police say he was carrying another handgun when they arrested him last week.
I’m shocked that criminals don’t obey the law. I’m shocked that he didn’t bother to fail a background check. Actually I’m not that shocked. It is shocking that people with more than 2 brain cells to rub together thought that this “affordable bail” idea would have no bad outcomes.
He was charged in July with unlawful use of a weapon. The judge let him go on his own recognizance. He was charged in October with another gun crime, and ordered held without bail, but the charge (violating parole agreement) was dropped in November and he was turned loose.
Witness the result.
Don’t expect a dead, black teenager to change anything. I mean, he wasn’t killed by cops, or a Trump supporter, so the media will ignore it. Accept for Crime in Wrigleyville and Boystown. And Social Justice Warriors will never admit that their ideas are insane, even in the face of statistics.
