    Hey Wfgodot - this is breaking in my "land" and I am disgusted.... I need to research but imho this is stupidity on steroids. I have given the current sheriff a deal of credit for a couple of reasons...but while CCJ is never going to be a lovely place,... I think I'll leave that sentence unfinished.

    We have SO many problems in this state - our county is the real joke. I am embarrassed to be a part of it. I am embarrassed to pay my property taxes to support it.

    Ay yi yi

    Doesn't Chicago have enough murders already? Why are they releasing convicted killers from other states?
    Just my opinion

    We've had this type of thing happen in Fl., of course!, before and it usually turns out that some paperwork did not get to where it was suppose to...usually ends up with a clerk being blamed...hope they catch this one fast!

    Reader, I have no doubt this is "just one of those things...ho hum... Cook county style. I am just livid about the level of and layers of utter incompetence/derp/ennui that permeates this county - the state is a whole 'nutther layer of imho pure suck! Again, not in the city - can't rightfully weigh in on that administration - and I voted for our current county commissioner. I am just extraordinarily disheartened.

    Swell. Only in Illinois would something like this happen. Same place those two inmates used the sheets to climb down from a highrise smack dab in the loop. This is a loopy state. argh!

    At a time in our society, when prisoners seem to have more rights than victims, lawyers make plea bargain deals that keep their clients out of jail or serving short sentences for heinous crimes, it is more than a shame, that a convicted criminal, with many years left to serve, is erroneously freed, therefore putting more innocent people in potential harm.

    There is no excuse I can imagine for this 'incident' to have happened. I hope no one will be injured, or worse before he can be re-apprehended. Wonder if this is considered an escape?

    Apparently they are still using paper system to track down prisoners down there at Chicago. Has the sheriff ever heard of a computer? I don't think I've ever heard anything more ridiculous. How do they not lose all of their prisoners?
    Just my opinion

    Highly unlikely it's the same guy, but you never know.

    We can keep track of our cars, phones and animals but not our prisoners?
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    I am absolutely amazed they are still tracking prisoners using paper system only. They should get some computers, for crying out loud.

    A convicted killer who spent 52 hours as a free man after being mistakenly released from the Cook County Jail spent the time before his re-arrest visiting 11 of his siblings and several cousins around Chicago and the suburbs, authorities said Saturday.

    They said Steven Lamont Robbins also donned a wig to go grocery shopping, and was sipping Seagram’s VO whiskey and watching TV before he was picked up Friday night at a house in Kankakee.
