Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said that the current bail bond system for gun crimes is like a revolving door allowing suspects to easily return to the streets and their criminal ways. He is now pushing for higher bail bonds to keep people charge with gun crimes to be held in jail longer pending their trials. He is still blind to the real reason for the increased gun violence in the Windy City.
If there is any one city plagued with more historical crimes than Washington DC, it has to be Chicago. For years, the city had one corrupt politician after another. Perhaps the most recent were Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and former Illinois Senator Barack Obama. The city also has a history of gangsters including Al Capone, Bugs Moran, Baby Face Nelson, John Dillinger and Barack Obama. The city also has its list notorious murderers and criminals including Ted Kaczynski, John Wayne Gacy, Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama.
Now the city is being run a former Obama White House Chief of Staff and disciple, Rahm Emanuel.
The state of Illinois has some pretty strict gun control laws, part of which is their FOID program from granting the right to own a gun in the state. Cook County also has strict gun control laws on top of those imposed by the state. Then you can add Chicago’s gun control laws and ordinances, and the residents of the Windy City are among those with the tightest grip strangling their Second Amendment rights…
If bail bonds are set higher for gun crimes over non-gun crimes, does that constitute a form of profiling in targeting a specific crime sector and treating it different than other similar crimes? Should someone who threatens someone with a gun be treated differently than a person who does the same thing only using a knife?
