Tom Dart to busy to rescue animals and dig up graves he can't even supervis his men

A Cook County corrections officer was ordered held in lieu of $50,000 bail Sunday, charged with forcibly detaining and sexually abusing a 17-year-old girl he met online.Daniel A. Robinson, 39, of the 400 block of Dunleer Drive in northwest suburban Cary, faces felony charges of unlawful restraint and criminal sexual abuse, according to court documents.A judge Sunday set bail at $50,000 for Robinson, who was arrested Saturday, according to court records.He has since been de-deputized and stripped of any law enforcement powers, Cook County Sheriff’s office spokesman Ben Breit said.Robinson’s future employment status with the sheriff’s office remained unclear as of Sunday night.Robinson met the victim on a social media site and then spoke with her via cell phone and Skype, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Oscar Garcia.They made arrangements to meet near her home in the western suburb of Berkeley on June 26, Garcia said.The victim got into Robinson’s car and he began kissing her and touching her breasts, according to Garcia.Robinson, decked out in a shirt with Cook County correctional officer insignia on it, groped the victim and told her it was okay because he is a police officer, Garcia said.He took her back to her residence, Garcia said, and then he loitered about until she went into the apartment building’s laundry room.Robinson followed her in there and continued to grope her, pull her hair, restrain her hands and pull her pants down, according to Garcia.The assault ended when the girl’s stepfather came into the laundry room and Robinson fled, Garcia said.Garcia said the lag between the date of the incident and charges being filed was due to the need to pull phone and internet records.Robinson’s attorney, Kevin Bolger, said in court Sunday that Robinson worked for the department of corrections for the past 15 years, is married and has three children.

We support Bill for Sheriff

My name is Bill Evans and I am a candidate for Cook County Sheriff in 2014.

I have been a sworn member of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office for 21 years and have served in a number of capacities during my tenure.  I began my career as a Cook County correctional officer and subsequently became a sheriff’s police officer in 1992.  During my career as a county police officer, I have served the agency with distinction and honor, accumulating a number of department citations, awards, and letters of appreciation, as well as other distinguished honors.

As a sheriff’s police officer, I have been assigned to the patrol division, the gang crimes unit, the Hostage Barricade Terrorist Team, the Field Training Program and the Special Operations Group.  I have proudly served every position from patrol officer to sergeant to lieutenant to commanding officer.  I have been involved in a number of sensitive investigations, covert assignments, and nearly 1,000 critical incidents.

Additionally, I have had the honor of representing my organization as a member of the South Suburban Association of Chiefs of Police, The Illinois Tactical Officer’s Association, The South Suburban Emergency Response Team and the Urban Area Security Initiative. I also have written and had published a number of law enforcement articles.  I have served as a consultant to local schools regarding safety matters and I have provided instruction to law enforcement officers and citizens at a local, national and international level.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in sociology in 1989 and a master’s degree in criminal justice in 1995.  I am a 2005 graduate of the prestigious Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command.  I am currently studying toward a second master’s degree in leadership studies.

As a former professional boxer, I now serve as a volunteer boxing coach, working primarily with children and young adults.  I am also an active member of a number of not-for-profit organizations, including the Beverly Ridge Homeowner’s Association and the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.  I currently serve on the Criminal Justice Advisory Board for a local college. I believe it is time for a career law enforcement officer to serve as our sheriff.  I am not a politician, which I believe will be a refreshing change to the citizens of Cook County.

Illinois back in Court after Concealed carry law passed

Shepard v. Madigan
This federal suit challenges Illinois' unconstitutional total ban on carrying firearms for self-defense outside the home.   The lead plaintiff is church treasurer Mary Shepard.  The ISRA is co-plaintiff in this case that is supported by the NRA.

From the NRA-ILA Press Release:
Mary Shepard is an Illinois resident and a trained gun owner with no criminal record, who is licensed to carry a concealed handgun in two other states. Because Illinois remains the only state that completely prohibits all law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms for self-defense outside the home, Mary Shepard also became a crime victim. While working as the treasurer of her church, Mrs. Shepard and an 83-year-old co-worker were viciously attacked and beaten by a six-foot-three-inch, 245-pound man with a violent past and a criminal record. Mrs. Shepard and her co-worker were lucky to survive, as each of them suffered major injuries to the head, neck and upper body. Mrs. Shepard’s injuries required extensive surgery and physical therapy.

“Mary Shepard isn't just a victim of the violent criminal who attacked her," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. "She is also a victim of anti self-defense activists in the Illinois legislature who have consistently refused to recognize that good people have the right to protect themselves when they go about their everyday business. We're pleased that the legislature has come closer this year than ever before to changing the law, but close isn't good enough for Mary Shepard and the thousands of other Illinois residents who are prohibited by statute from defending themselves outside the home."

Because Illinois statutes prohibit the right to keep and bear arms and the ability to carry handguns in Illinois, they infringe on the right of the people, including Mrs. Shepard, members of the ISRA and other law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and are thus null and void. ...

Illinois still violates gun rights with new law

To all Chicago non police residence there is no longer gun registration in Chicago. How ever this new law is unconstitutional and very restrictive.

On July 9, 2013, Public Act 98-63, the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, became state law (430 ILCS 66). You may view the full text of the law at:
The Illinois State Police ("ISP") is in charge of implementing this law. The ISP has a webpage dedicated to this topic with common questions and aswers. They are the autority on this topic. You can view it here:

If you see a class already advertised for Illinois Concealed Carry, consider this section in the law:

Section 80. Firearms instructor training.
(b) A person who is not a certified firearms instructor shall not teach applicant training courses or advertise or otherwise represent courses they teach as qualifying their students to meet the requirements to receive a license under this Act. Each violation of this subsection is a business offense with a fine of at least $1,000 per violation.
Since no one has been certified as an Illinois CCW Firearms Instructor by ISP yet, it is technically illegal to advertise an "Illinois Concealed Carry Class".

The below information was written up and posted by us on 03/21/2013, before any law was passed and at the time when competing bills were floating around. The below assesment is not longer relevant, but has been preserved for historical and reference purposes. Refer to the top of this page for the most current and up to date info.

The Illinois concealed carry law has not been passed yet! News flash... Do yourself a favor and do not fall for unscrupulous and unethical instructors who are offering you an Illinois concealed carry class right now. Such a class does not exist yet. The seventh circuit court made it perfectly clear that the current prohibition on concealed carry in Illinois is unconstitutional. The court stayed its order for 180 days thus giving the Illinois General Assembly until June 9th 2013 to come up with an Illinois concealed carry law/bill. If no concealed carry law is passed, the court is likely to permit concealed carry without a law: in other words we could have constitutional carry.

The bill in front of the State of Illinois Legislative Assembly has undergone a dozen changes and will undergo a dozen more before the final Illinois concealed carry law is finalized and passed. These changes will incorporate instructor qualifications and registries with the Illinois State Police as well as student class requirements. Furthermore, the State of Illinois Concealed Carry law might require that all training be effective after the Illinois concealed carry law has passed.

I know what you are thinking: It is very reasonable to assume that the 8 hour NRA Basic pistol class will be the foundation to qualify for the Illinois concealed carry license/permit, once it passes. It is easy to make that assumption because the 8 hour NRA Basic Pistol class qualifies you for most other concealed carry permits/licenses in the Nation and it is listed as one of the proposed student requirements in HB0997. DON'T TAKE THAT CHANCE!! The current Illinois Concealed Carry bill already has specific range (live-fire) qualifications that are different from the typical 8 hour NRA Basic Pistol class. Furthermore lawmakers have changed the range (live-fire) qualifications multiple times already.

The Illinois concealed carry class is likely to have specific examination requirements during classroom portion and discussions on the use of deadly force as they pertain to the laws of the State of Illinois.

However, there is something you should be doing to prepare for Illinois concealed carry. You absolutely must obtain a non-resident permit from Florida, Arizona or Utah. In the proposed legislation (amended HB0997) there is language that states the following: "Any Illinois resident who has a license or permit to carry a handgun issued by another state shall be able to carry a handgun in accordance with this Act using that license for 365 days following the effective date of this Act." This means that you would be able to carry concealed in Illinois on the date when the bill becomes law for 1 year. Avoid the initial onslaught of applications to the Illinois State Police and price gouging.

In addition, having a non resident permit will allow you to carry in other states since it may also take a while for Illinois State Police to enter into reciprocity agreements with other states.

We recommend Utah + Arizona permit combination due to the coverage they provide and the low costs both states charge to process the applications. Florida permit is recommended if you travel to Florida.

I am disgusted with the instructors and companies misrepresenting to the hard-working people of Illinois their classes by implying that you can take a class now and it would satisfy Illinois concealed carry requirements. If you are one of those people who paid for a class already, call those companies and instructors back and demand a refund!

Feel free to call or email Illinois Concealed Carry, LLC. if you have additional questions about this topic. And please keep us in mind for all your firearm and concealed carry training needs.

Judges are forced to restrict travel

A new Illinois law requires judges to confiscate the passport or restrict the travel of a person charged with first-degree murder or another violent crime if the court determines the defendant is a flight risk.
Previous state laws gave judges more discretion on whether to take such steps.
The change was sparked by a 2012 Tribune investigation, "Across the Border, Beyond the Law," that found hundreds of Chicago-area defendants charged with murder, rape and other violent crimes avoided trial simply by crossing a U.S. border. At cursory bond hearings in murder trials, county judges often failed to confiscate passports or impose other travel restrictions, even when the accused was a citizen of another country.
"This closes a huge loophole that was brought to my attention by the Chicago Tribune," said the law's sponsor, state Sen. Ira Silverstein, D-Chicago. It was signed Friday by Gov. Pat Quinn.
Two state laws have now been enacted as a result of the Tribune series. The other made it a felony for a family member to help prevent a fugitive's arrest or aid in his or her escape from a jurisdiction to avoid prosecution.

6 year old shot by gun wealing monkey while 13 others are wounded

A 6-year-old boy riding in a car with his mom was shot in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side overnight, according to police, the boy among at least 13 people shot since Friday afternoon across the city.

Police aren’t certain of the boy’s condition but said he was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. He was in a car in the 4200 block of West Wilcox Street about 11:30 p.m. when someone started shooting.

Police don’t believe the mother or the boy was the target but it’s not clear who the shooter was aiming toward. No one is in custody.

Earlier Friday, a 27-year-old man was shot to death in the Winneconna Parkway neighborhood this afternoon, police said.

The man was shot in the chest in the 500 block of West Winneconna Parkway--south of 78th Street and Normal Avenue--about 1:20 p.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.

The man was identified as Kevin Williams, 27, of the 11100 block of South Eggleston Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

No one was in custody in the slaying and Area South detectives are investigating.
Williams was about six weeks from completing his parole in a 2008 burglary charge, and previously had served time in a 2007 heroin case, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records.

Another man was killed in the 3600 block of South Michigan Avenue, a block and a half from the Chicago Police Department headquarters.

A 32-year-old man standing with a group of others near the door of an apartment building was shot through the side of his torso about 12:45 a.m. The bullet lodged in his chest, police said. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition but pronounced dead there a short time later.

A 27-year-old man was shot in the 300 block of South Cicero Avenue about 3:30 a.m. He was hit in the abdomen and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. Additional details weren’t immediately available.

About 2:55 a.m, an 18-year-old man was shot in the 3900 block of West Madison Street in the East Garfield Park neighborhood. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

Two women, 18 and 19, were shot in the 5600 block of South Ada Street in the Englewood neighborhood about 2:50 a.m. The older woman was shot in the arm and the younger was grazed in the hand. They told police they “heard shots and felt pain” as they were leaving a party on the block. Both were taken to St. Bernard Hospital and Healthcare Center.

About 2 a.m., someone shot a 33-year-old man in his upper back in the 5100 block of South Kostner Avenue in the Archer Heights neighborhood. He was in the back yard with others when the shooter approached on foot and opened fire from the alley, police said. He fled south down the alley. The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center and his condition stabilized, Greer said.

A 22-year-old man walked into Rush Hospital and Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the leg about 1:50 a.m. He told police he had been shot in the 200 block of South Central Park Avenue in the East Garfield Park neighborhood. He was later transferred to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County and his condition was stabilized, police said.

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the Humboldt Park neighborhood about 11:20 p.m. He was walking with about a group when someone inside a passing dark car started shooting, Greer said. The boy was hit in the chest and taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

In addition to that shooting, a 21-year-old man sustained a gunshot wound on the 11800 block of South Michigan Avenue, said Chicago Fire Department Spokesman Larry Langford.

The man was taken to Advocate Christ medical center in serious-to-critical condition, Langford said.

A salesman at the Plaza True Value Hardware Store said the shooting happened at about 2 p.m. directly outside of the store.

There were about four people attending to about three or four customers inside the store when the shooting happened, according to the salesman who would not give his name.

He said employees called police who arrived along with paramedics who took the man to the hospital.

He said the victim was standing outside of the store with a group of about 15 others when the shooting happened.

"I looked out and I saw a bunch of kids around somebody and I just thought it was some kids fist-fighting," said the man. "Then I saw the blood."

He said the Roseland neighborhood "is pretty bad" but they have not experience any problems near the store.

At about 7:20 p.m., a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were shot on the 2300 block of North Melvina Avenue in the Belmont Central neighborhood, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O'Brien.

The younger victim was shot in the arm and leg and the older man sustained a graze wound to his ankle, police said. There conditions were not immediately available, O'Brien said.

3 monkey's charged in the shooting of a 4 year old girl

Three teenagers have been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 4-year-old girl as she rode her scooter near her grandmother's home early this week, authorities said.

Laquan Waters, 18, Tyrese Pearson, 17, and Roosevelt Stevens, 15, have been charged with attempted murder in the shooting about 4:55 p.m. Monday of Khalise Weatherspoon, said Cook Count state's attorney's spokeswoman Tandra Simonton. Khalise was the fourth child age 7 or younger to be shot and wounded in Chicago in July.

The girl was on a scooter, playing with her 3-year-old brother and two older sisters just down the block from their grandmother's home near 71st and Rockwell streets in Marquette Park, when two gunmen stepped out of an alley and opened fire about 4:55 p.m. Monday, according to family and police. Khalise was struck in the abdomen and a 31-year-old man was also hit.

The girl was taken by a neighbor to Holy Cross Hospital, then transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was listed in good condition. The man suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks and was taken to Holy Cross Hospital.

Earlier in the week, police had no description of the shooters. Detectives were able to track down the suspects despite lack of cooperation from Khalise's family in identifying the shooters, an official said today.

Waters, of the 6900 block of South Artesian Avenue, Pearson, of the 9300 block of South Greenwood, and Stevens, of the 7200 block of South Wentworth--who is being charged as an adult--were expected to appear in Cook County Central Bond Court on Saturday, Simonton said.

Three other young children were shot and wounded in Chicago in July:

• A 7-year-old boy was shot in the neck in Cole Park in the Chatham neighborhood on July 3.

• Jaden Donald, 5, was shot in the chest at Cooper Park in the West Pullman neighborhood early on July 4.

• Quianna Tomplins, 6, was shot while riding a scooter in the Roseland neighborhood July 20. She was at a memorial for a man shot to death on the same street five years ago.
