    Now the assigned judge just has to do their job. How difficult could it be with the videos as evidence? Including this worthless savage yelling "kill them both". buh-bye Cornell.

    Affirmative action, when this sorry A$$ looser was sticking up south of North Avenue and North of the City southern borders he was a frequent flyer, in and out of state prison. That was acceptable to the States Attorney office. Now, he has stuck up outside of his normal Modus Operative (MO) he will be given life this time around simply using his frequent flyer miles. That is discrimination he should've been given life a long time ago. But again, as long as his victims were in the hood, the States Attorney was willing to bargain the amount of time given. Now, these criminals from the west and south sides are branching out, working under the Affirmative Action—Equal Opportunity banner they’re catching attention. We have been shouting about this long ago. Call your governor and complain about his banning of the death penalty. Maybe we can give him death for malfeasant in the Governor’s office leading to numerous deaths and destruction. The Governor has willfully and negligently violating his fiduciary relationship and his responsibilities with the residents of Illinois.
