Did they just assume no one would vet him? Surely they could find someone with similar views that they can pass off as a subject matter expert without any of the baggage.

Local PD keeps on showing photos of seized guns and the vast majority are Polymer 80 handguns and AR pistols. 80% frames and AR pistols are both effectively banned in my jurisdiction.

I don't know if that revealed preference is because the owners were prohibited possessors before their most recent run with the cops, or its just easier to source these or both.


Weird grab bag of guns seized recently. .22 semi auto target length pistol and a revolver. 3D printed 1911 (instead of?) the normal P-80 glock build. Have supply chain disruptions started affecting our basic felons?

Well I must say, I'd think twice before attempting to burglarize that home, at least by myself and without a tank or something

Meh, they can only shoot 4 at a time. The rest are just dead weight.

I'll be sorely disappointed if they don't have a spray painted piece of plywood in their front yard that says, "No Trespassing. We don't call 9-1-1."

Amtrak seems like an especially dumb way to try to avoid the cops. It must have a higher rate of random searches per passenger mile than interstate busses. I suspect they over-do their (limited) security theater because gosh darn it, the railway is just as useful as those newfangled aeroplanes.

Certain Chicago prosecutors seem to believe there isn't enough gun violence in their city.

Also, local news, could you please specify that the place name that is shared with a major metro elsewhere is a neighborhood or district or county to avoid confusion?

The article says they didn't have enough evidence to charge the people they arrested.

Oh B, you sweet summer child.

Embrace the option of 'and'

Quote:
Mutual combatants was cited as the reason for the rejection.


Quote:
Last week, Cook County prosecutors came under fire after reportedly making a similar argument after a teenager was stabbed to death during a fight in Schaumburg. The family of the victim, 18-year-old Manuel Porties Jr., later told WGN that prosecutors specifically said they weren’t charging the 17-year-old suspect with murder because the fatal fight amounted to mutual combat.


Clearly the first group of "mutual combatants" could be charged with discharging a firearm within city limits, or a whole host of lesser charges.

Edit: felony murder is off the table. Good job, Chiraq. If anything would be a reasonable use of felony murder, this would be it.

Yes, I'm sure the cops are excited to put suspected criminals back on the street. I was foolish to think that trained lawyers looking at the evidence might come to different conclusion about the strength of their case than a member of the third most popular Pearl Jam message board.

Love of crime is the more likely motivation.
