Chicago Rambo monkey is now in Indiana killing two boys 21 and 24

INDIANAPOLIS -- A family is grieving after the deaths of two brothers who were shot in a car after leaving a nightclub early Sunday morning.

Andre Stennette-Harrod, 21, and his older half-brother, LaVonne Harrod, 24, were killed in a car at the intersection of 38th Street and Georgetown Road, about a block away from Cloud 9, where they had attended a concert, RTV6's Eboné Monet reported.

"This is just a senseless, senseless murder," said Sabrina Stennette, Andre's mother.
Friends flooded the brothers' Facebook and Twitter accounts with condolences. Andre would have started his senior year at Ball State University this fall.

"It's devastating to see your son at 11 o'clock that night and hug them and tell them you love them, and the next thing you hear is that he's gone over something senseless," Stennette said.

Rapper Yo Gotti was the performer at the show. He tweeted that the club was so packed that the fire marshal came to shut it down.

Stennette said Andre and his brother were good men and that her son started a business using basketball to counter street violence.

"They are taking lives for no reason, and whoever did, I just want you to know that you didn't just impact him, but he has family that loves him. He has people who love him, and he had a dream to stop this madness," Stennette said. "He was promoting using basketball to get kids off the street and … away from violence, and then it's violence that takes his life."

Police have not made any arrests or released any information about possible suspects. Investigators put out a call for information that could lead to an arrest.

"Detectives continue to track down witnesses and evaluate physical evidence in an attempt to identify a suspect or suspects, but believe several people could have witnessed the actual shooting or circumstances that led up to the shooting," said Indianapolis police spokesman Kendale Adams.

Police asked anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS

Court house closed cause of Anthrax threat

The Monmouth County Courthouse will remain closed while more testing is done to determine why dozens of staffers have become ill there in recent days.
County officials say 25 people were taken to the hospital Monday and roughly 40 more were treated at the building in Freehold for symptoms that included nausea, skin rashes, breathing difficulties and chest pains. That spurred authorities to close the courthouse at 1 p.m., forcing the rescheduling of trials and other court proceedings
The new outbreak came after 17 staffers had experienced similar symptoms on Friday. Authorities initially thought those workers had reactions to a freshly cut flower that a colleague had brought into the building, but that theory has now been ruled out.
The courthouse will remain closed Tuesday, but may reopen Wednesday.

From SCC: Summer Furlough Rumor

  • The streets of Chicago are officially more dangerous than a war zone: Homicide victims in the Windy City outnumber U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan this year.

    While 144 Americans have died in Afghanistan in 2012, a whopping 228 Chicago residents have been killed, and the murder rate is up a staggering 35 percent from last year. That’s a rash of homicides quadruple the rate of New York City’s, and police and crime experts fear it may only get worse.
....lead to rumors like this:
  • The city's new priority in the next contract has changed.

    Priority #1 is to cancel ALL summer furloughs in the department. The old priority was changing the medical policy.

    The city is going to leave the medical alone and possibly offer 2% annual raises if the FOP agrees to NO 6, 7, 8, or 9 furlough selections for ANYONE. This will keep the city from having to hire more officers when all they need (they think) are more officers in the summer.

    The city knows it will be hard to get this in arbitration, so they are already planning concessions to get the FOP to agree.
There are exceptions already built into the contract - we believe the Mounted Unit already can't have summer furloughs and one of the restrictions in place from the old days was Summer Mobile people couldn't have a furlough segment during their details. A wholesale ban on summer furloughs though? Not really in the cards that we can see.

Ald. Burke not sold yet on Emanuel pot ticketing idea

Burke not sold on Emanuel pot ticket idea.

An influential Chicago alderman said today he's not yet ready to sign off on Mayor Rahm Emanuel's proposal to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana.

Although Ald. Edward Burke, 14th, didn’t rule out backing the mayor’s plan, the veteran City Council member said he needs to know far more about when police will write tickets instead of making arrests.

“If you run across somebody that’s violating the law and you want to write them a ticket as opposed to taking them into custody, and that person has no identification, how do you write the ticket?” Burke asked, after a speech at the City Club of Chicago.

“Do you believe what the person says — my name is Joe Blow, or my name is George Washington and he’s got no identification to back that up? How do you then guarantee that that person is going to show up for the administrative hearing?”

Under Emanuel’s proposal, which a Council committee could hear as soon as Thursday, police would have the option of writing tickets for possession of 15 grams of pot or less. Fines would range from $100 to $500.

That could generate millions in city revenue and potentially give beat cops more time on the street to deal with more serious issues like gang violence.

Police, however, could still enforce state statute and make arrests, and Burke wants to know when they are going to use that discretion.

“The Police Department has to show us, I think, that they are not just going to blindly issue tickets to everybody that’s in possession of small amounts,” said Burke, a former cop and the longest serving council member. “There has to be a certain strategy to know which of these people that they could write a ticket to are eligible for a ticket.”

Burke also questioned the affect that writing tickets might have on younger people’s views of drug use.

“This a slippery slope that we begin sliding down,” he said. “I’ll tell you as a parent, I’m very concerned with anything that gives kids the idea that this is not a bad thing to do.”

Pot decriminalization was first suggested last year by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, who said low-income people and minorities are arrested for pot possession in disproportionate numbers.

Ald. Daniel Solis, 25th, agreed and put a proposal before the council that Emanuel plans to modify and support.

Despite reservations like those expressed by Burke, Ald. Patrick O’Connor, 40th, the mayor’s council floor leader, said he expects the proposal to win approval, if not by a huge margin.

“I think there will be a lot of personal involvement in this vote,” O’Connor said, noting some aldermen may be influenced by knowing people who have had drug problems. “There’s a myriad of issues that go beyond just whether you are decriminalizing marijuana, and I don’t know that everybody’s there.”

O’Connor said he also doesn’t expect the Emanuel administration to try to force the issue. “I don’t think there will be a full-court press to make sure it passes overwhelmingly,” he said.

Burke, meanwhile, said time will tell whether he votes for it.

“I’m not saying we shouldn’t do this,” he said. “I’m saying there’s a lot of questions that should be answered.”

Supreme Court upholds conviction of Chicago rapist

The Supreme Court retreated today from its view that a criminal defendant's right to confront his accusers includes trial testimony from the crime lab analyst who identified him as the culprit.

By a 5-4 vote, the justices upheld the conviction of a Chicago rapist who was found guilty based on a DNA match done by a crime lab in Maryland.

The decision in Williams v. Illinois is a victory, albeit a tentative one, for prosecutors and state lawyers. They had worried the high court was on the verge of giving defendants a right to demand testimony from all crime lab technicians whose reports were used against them.

They said this would put a costly burden on local and state governments and take technicians and analysts away from their crime labs.

Sandy Williams, the Chicago man, was convicted after an Illinois crime lab analyst testified she had matched a sample of his blood with a DNA profile done on a semen sample taken from the victim. The DNA work was done at a Cellmark lab in Maryland, and the expert who did the profile did not testify.

The 6th Amendment gives defendants a right to be confronted with the witnesses against them, and in recent years, the high court has said that reports from crime labs serve as the crucial evidence for the prosecution. In these cases, the lab analysts must be ready to testify at trial, the court had said.

But in today's decision, the court backed away somewhat and said this rule does not extend to all the analysts whose work served the prosecution.

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. said the testimony of the Illinois crime lab analyst was sufficient. The technician had explained how she matched the blood sample from Williams to the DNA profile done at the Cellmark lab in Maryland. There was no need for live testimony from a Cellmark technician, Alito said.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Anthony Kennedy and Stephen G. Breyer agreed with him, and Justice Clarence Thomas concurred separately.

The so-called "confrontation" right has divided the court in an unusual way. Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative, has taken the strongest stand in favor of requiring live testimony, including from lab technicians. On Monday, he joined a dissent written by Justice Elena Kagan and two of her liberal colleagues, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor.

Kagan said today's splintered majority opinion has "left significant confusion" over whether lab technicians will be required to testify in court for the prosecution

Infrastructure also languishing as funding ideas hit roadblocks Illinois state parks could close without new revenue

Blago was stupid for making Quinn his second in command and even dumber the way he did buisness in the State office. Now Quinn is a stupid fuck who can not get his head out of his ass.

One of Gov. Pat Quinn'sfirst acts after assuming office in 2009 was reopening seven state parks that predecessor Rod Blagojevich shuttered in a cost-saving move.

At the time, Quinn argued that closing the parks cost Illinois more in lost tourism dollars than the move saved.

But just three years later, ongoing money problems may lead to new state park closures just as the summer tourist season is heating up.

The problem centers on the budget for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, which manages the state's more than 300 parks, forests and wildlife areas. As other priorities such as health care and pension costs took up more and more of the state budget, less money was left for other services, including conservation and recreation.

A large chunk of the department's budget comes from state general revenue. It totaled $106 million in 2002 but is now just $45.4 million in the spending plan that lawmakers sent Quinn last month. Agency officials are re-evaluating their business model with the idea of finding a dedicated funding stream to pay for parks, trails and other services.

Earlier this year, the agency backed a plan to charge park visitors $7 for a single-day pass or $25 for a yearly pass. But that idea was set aside when supporters realized it would be difficult to enforce in parks with multiple entrances and dwindling manpower.

A new proposal emerged that would raise license plate fees for all motorists by $2, with the money being used to keep parks open and repair those suffering from years of neglect. The proposal narrowly passed the House last month but failed to get enough support in the Senate during the waning hours of the spring session.

Sponsoring Rep. Frank Mautino, D-Spring Valley, had said the measure would raise $15 million in its first year and $32 million in later years for the DNR.

Without that money, agency director Marc Miller said he's now faced with the possibility of closing parks, cutting operating hours and laying off workers.

It's unclear what locations might have to close or when cutbacks will be put in place, but Miller said "everything is on the table."

"I know personally that Gov. Quinn is committed to do better for the environment and conservation, but it's been a very difficult time these last three years," Miller said. "We've had unprecedented budget issues ... and we have to live within these times."

But Miller said his agency is also at a crossroads and can no longer continue to limp along. Either fees must be raised so the agency can support itself, or there won't be much left for visitors to enjoy, Miller said.

In addition to budget cuts, the agency faces $750 million worth of deferred maintenance projects. Sewers, roads and other park infrastructure have been left to crumble because there's no money for upkeep.

Last year, the Adeline Jay Geo-Karis Illinois Beach State Park in Zion had to close after summer storms ripped through the area and knocked down or damaged hundreds of trees. The department couldn't afford to hire a contractor to quickly clean up the safety hazards, so workers slowly chipped away at the job and the park reopened about nine months later, having lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in camping revenue, Miller said.

The agency ran into other problems during southern Illinois floods last year. Conservation police were called in to help rescue those trapped by the rising water but had to borrow boats from other agencies because the ones they normally use were in such bad shape.

This year, Miller said, he is concerned that a wave of employee retirements may make it difficult to keep sites staffed and open. The agency has been under a hiring freeze for the last decade, and staff levels have dropped from 2,400 employees in 2002 to about 1,100 employees now. But that number may drop even lower, as 80 workers have already expressed interest in retiring this year amid ongoing talks about reforming the state's public employee pension system. More than 200 others are also eligible for retirement this year.

That means the agency may be forced to pay out anywhere from $3 million to $5 million in retirement benefits, an expense that wasn't factored into the latest spending plan, said Mautino, who has spent the last year working on the funding issues. As a result, even more cuts may have to be made, Mautino said.

"It's a cash flow issue," said Mautino, who warned the prospects are even worse in 2013 when the agency will likely be facing a $22 million shortfall if nothing is done.

While most of the focus has been on the damage to state parks, Mautino noted the agency is responsible for billions of dollars that flow to the state's economy through tourism and other industries that it oversees, including coal, gas and mining. Without the proper resources, Mautino said the state is losing out on jobs because there aren't enough people to process mining permits in a timely manner.

Mautino said raising fees would ease that pressure. On top of the increase in license plate fees, his proposal would also impose a new $15 annual fee for ATV users and raise other fees related to coal mining, oil and gas drilling, and commercial fishing. Out-of-state visitors would also be charged entrance fees to state parks, and new admission fees would be imposed for the Illinois State Museum in Springfield.

Quinn has vowed to sign the bill to raise license plate fees and the other agency fees if it makes it to his desk, and his budget director has promised Mautino that the funds would not be used to pay other expenses.

"We certainly support" the proposal, Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said. "Our state treasures are very important to Gov. Quinn and the people of Illinois, and he has a long history of standing up for our state parks and natural resources."

Sen. Toi Hutchinson, D-Olympia Fields, said she'd like to take another shot at passing the fee increase legislation over the summer.

But Hutchinson acknowledged it might be overshadowed by efforts to strike a deal with Quinn on how to reform the pension systems, which are underfunded by more than $80 billion. If there is no time to take up the funding issue over the summer, Hutchinson said she would revisit it during the fall veto session.

"I understand that some people don't think that we should raise fees on anything right now, but at some point we have to have a conversation about what it costs to invest in the infrastructure of this state," Hutchinson said. "Why would we not take every opportunity we can to give the department a way to be sustainable on its own?"

In the meantime, Miller is faced with some tough decisions.

"We are determined to do our best to keep everything open, but it's going to be quite challenging as we go through the summer without that funding."
