    Cook county judges defy sentencing guidelines

    What they are actually doing is breaking the law by ignoring sentencing guidelines. In the meantime, violent offenders are back on the street doing their thing instead of being locked up. When questioned about a deathly consequence, she responds "You got me".

    Cook County. No more need be said. The crookedest County in the crookedest State in the USA. The most corrupt by any standard, with party hacks insulated at every level, promoted far beyond their abilities in their wildest dreams.

    Tragic results. May they rise up in indignation and take their city and county back. Oops........that won't happen.

    Imagine going to court and telling the judge you broke the law because you thought you would get better results by doing so. How do you think that would work for you?

    My crystal ball was DOA as well, same as everyone's.

    But with the most-violent of forcible felonies, it's hard to imagine why a person would be eligible for the lightweight "boot camp" type of thing, and why state law requiring such things being off the table would be allowed anyway. Such a person defying logic to such a degree isn't a judge but rather a clear and present danger to our own safety.

    Cook county judges violate IL sentencing law, prosecutors refuse to appeal the judge's decisions and the sheriff takes cover. Hizzonner Sheik Rahm believes disarming law abiding gunowners will turn the tide on Chicago and Cook county violent crime.

    Cook county in Illinois,,,,, would you expect it to be lawful,,,,

    check it out
    "A State with No Republicans!"

    Some interesting data on the 'state' of Illinois ...
    There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
    Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S.
    averaging $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income.
    Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end.
    I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
    Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago.
    221 killed in Iraq; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
    Here's the Chicago chain of command: President: Barack Hussein Obama •
    Senator: Dick Durbin • House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. •
    Governor: Pat Quinn • House leader: Mike Madigan •
    Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) • Mayor:
    Rahm Emanuel • The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. •
    Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.
    •Of course, they're all blaming each other.
    •Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
    Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
    Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
    Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.
    And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us?
    George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.
    He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, that's right, also in prison.
    And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned, .. and that's right,
    he and his wife both are in prison also.
    The Land of Lincoln, where our Governors and Representatives
    make our license plates. What?
    As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population
    of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state
    will go broke before the country does.

    The judges should be held accountable. Heck, everyone should be held accountable.

    That's not the American way. That judge should totally pawn off the blame onto someone or something else, though.
