Nykea Aldridge is dead, killed by two gangsters who should have been behind bars, but weren’t because it’s “racist” to keep criminals in jail if they’re black.
Derren Sorrels had six felony convictions and was on parole for motor vehicle theft and escape from custody when the shooting happened, Johnson said. He wore an ankle bracelet but had taken it off during a period of time in which he was allowed to look for work, Deenihan said.Darwin Sorrells was on parole for a gun charge. He had been sentenced to six years in January 2013 but was released early, Johnson said.The police superintendent said the judicial system needs to demand more accountability for people convicted of gun offenses.
“This tragedy isn’t just noteworthy just because Ms. Aldridge has a famous family member,” Johnson said. “It’s noteworthy because these two offenders are prime examples of the challenge we face in Chicago with repeat gun offenders who don’t care who they shoot, don’t care whose life they take and clearly, clearly don’t fear the consequences of their actions.”
And why should day? Your city makes it almost impossible for law-abiding people to get guns, your courts don’t punish criminals. Six felony convictions and he’s out on parole? Jesus Christ, Chicago, just build another prison if you don’t have enough room!
“My cousin was killed today in Chicago,” Wade said in one tweet. “Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough.”
I’ll bet you dollars to doughnuts that your cousin’s killers didn’t get their guns at any gun store or gun show. Instead, they went where every criminal goes to- the black market or the dark web. Everything can be found there, but admitting that is hard. Instead, you want feel good laws that don’t solve the problem.
How about enforcing the laws we already have? How about building more prisons and not giving thugs early parole? How about making it easier to get a concealed carry permit in Illinois instead of requiring a 16-hour class plus a ton of paperwork?
Here’s an idea, the next time a cop shoots a criminal, support the cop! Every dead criminal is a criminal that can’t commit more crimes. Every living criminal is a potential repeat offender.
