Two embarrassing Chicago law enforcement failures this week
Here we go again:
"The League of Shadows has been a check against human corruption for thousands of years. We sacked Rome, loaded trade ships with plague rats, burned London to the ground. Every time a civilization reaches the pinnacle of its decadence, we return to restore the balance." Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begins..
In the latest installment I am looking at a couple of embarrassing law enforcement miscues, one deadly, in Chicago.
On Monday a man was shot to death 45 minutes after being released from Cook County Jail on the Southwest Side because of a prosecutorial error. He only made it only a mile from the notorious jail.
Late last night a stolen 2014 Dodge Challenger was recovered on the West Side. But the muscle car was swiped again early this morning in a police parking lot where, yes, there are surveillance cameras.
