Chicago is mostly known for its black on black violence surrounding everything except the city center.
Rahm Emanuel has all but said he’s ok with black thugs killing each other, as long as they “take it to the alley.”
So one can only wonder how a judge was shot and killed.
As FOX News reported,
A Chicago judge was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting early Monday morning outside the judge’s home, according to police.
Officers responded to a 4:51 a.m. call to shots fired in the West Chesterfield neighborhood on the city’s South Side where they found the judge with several gunshot wounds. The Chicago Tribune identified him as 66-year-old Associate Judge Raymond Myles.
He was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center. Paramedics rushed a 52-year-old woman hit in the leg to the hospital in serious condition. The relationship between the judge and the woman was unclear.
We may never know the reason behind the shooting. But one thing is for certain; the woman was more than the judge’s assistant.
The article continues,
Police reported nobody in custody as they launched a homicide investigation.
“You have our word that we will not let his life be lost in vain,” Chicago Police Department 1st Deputy Superintendent Kevin Navarro told reporters.
And what of the other 155 murders in Chicago so far (as of this writing) this year? Are those deaths in vain?
The article continues,
Chicago Chief of Detectives Melissa Staples said there have been “some patterns of robberies” in the area.
This was no robbery attempt, Detective Staples. But nice try!
And then we get to the nitty gritty…details of the assailant.
Staples said the suspect, described as a black male, fled the area on foot. Authorities are reviewing multiple video cameras in the area to figure out a vehicle he may have gotten into.
The judge was no stranger to the bizarre. As the article points out,
Myles had been involved in several high-profile cases, such as the murder of relatives of singer and actress Jennifer Hudson in 2008, when he ordered William Balfour to be held without bond.
Myles was attacked in 2015 after a minor traffic collision after taking pictures of the damage on his car, the Tribune added. The other driver punched him in the face, causing serious injuries, according to court records cited in the newspaper.
As for this homicide, a witness reported
“I heard maybe six shots. The shots woke me up, and the screaming of the woman woke me up. She was screaming, ‘Don’t kill him, don’t kill him!'” an unidentified neighbor told the Tribune, saying the judge and the woman often left the home early in the morning to work out at a nearby health club.
Another black on black crime in the Windy City.
