Self-defense, Even in Chicago?

Who could have guessed it was possible? (Or that the entrenched media would give an unbiased account?) 3 intruders shot and killed by homeowner, police say | WGN-TV

One woman and two men thought it would be a good idea to break into a home via a basement window.

But the homeowner was inside with a gun, and shot the intruders before securing himself inside the house and calling 911.

Police arrived and found 3 dead bodies

Police believe this is a case of self-defense, which is a human-right. Even in Chicago. Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0.

Self Defense in Chicago?

Who knew such thing was possible. Self Defense, Again | Chicago Murder, Crime & Mayhem | HeyJackass!

“At 5:18 a.m., a 30-year-old woman was being battered by Damien Hernandez in the 6900 block of West 65th Street, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The woman pulled out a gun and shot him three times [HJ – head, chest & junk], police said.

They arrested her, because guns, but they let her go after they reluctantly came to the conclusion that self-defense is legal. Even in Chicago.

For all the info on that shooting gallery that exists where once stood the great City of Chicago, you should see HeyJackass!

In other Chicago news, 3 were killed and 5 more were wounded in the war zone. (How else to describe it?)

So Why Is This Guy on the Street?

Convicted again and again. Then paroled and he commits another crime. Why is he not in prison? CWB Chicago: “Have You Ever Been Shot?”—Paroled Again And Again And Again, Man Now Charged With Blue Line Robbery

He received a 25-year-sentenced for trying to shoot a city worker in 1999, which should’ve been enough to keep him in prison until 2024.

Chicago – in the person of the Mayor – will tell you their problems are all the fault of not enough gun control. But if this guy’s story is common, they have an old-fashioned criminal control problem; they aren’t keeping the bad guys locked up.

This is the list of times he was convicted.

  • 6 years for manufacture-delivery of cocaine in 2013
  • 25 years for aggravated discharge of a firearm in 1999
  • 5 years for being a felon in possession of a firearm in 1999
  • 4 years for violating the controlled substances act in 1993
  • 10 years for attempted murder in 1993
  • 10 years for armed robbery in 1993

    I guess Illinois doesn’t have a “Three Strikes and You’re Out” type of law. And why didn’t the crime in 2013 get him sent back on the convictions in 1999?

    A clerk wrestled a gun away from two men who tried to rob his Austin neighborhood store and then shot them Tuesday afternoon on the West Side, according to Chicago Police.

    He shot them both. One in the torso and one in the leg. Both are in hospital, and will move from their into police custody.

    Chicago saw more 2016 murders than New York City, Los Angeles combined

    They will blame everyone but themselves. Chicago violence: Chicago saw more 2016 murders than New York City, Los Angeles combined – CBS News

    One of the most violent years in Chicago history ended with a sobering tally: 762 homicides, the most in two decades in the city and more than New York and Los Angeles combined.

    Hey Jackass! has other figures, but they are equally disturbing.

    The powers that be are calling the “flood of illegal guns” out as the problem. They have taken 1000s of guns off the street, but not incarcerated 1000s of criminals.

    While New York City saw a slight decrease in homicides and Los Angeles a slight increase for 2016, both have hit historic lows in the past several years. Philadelphia, which has also seen a dip in murder rates overall, saw a small decrease for 2016.

    So where are the guns flowing into NY City and Philadelphia? Or are they handling criminals differently?

    Protesters disrupt Black Friday shopping on Magnificent Mile

    Because somehow it is the fault of people working in retail. Or something. Protesters disrupt Black Friday shopping on Mag Mile | WGN-TV

    For the second year in a row, demonstrators disrupted Black Friday shopping on the Mag Mile to call for more accountability for Chicago police.

    I get being pissed off. I even get the Chicago Cops are out of control. What I don’t get is how this helps in any way.

    The would-be robber was shot multiple times by the clerk at 7:56 p.m. in the 8100 block of South Racine, police said.

    I have no doubt that the officials will ignore this. I am a bit surprised that the Suntimes paid any attention. It might constitute a great disturbance in the narrative.
