Cook County, IL: 14-Year-Old Charged With Shooting Two, Freed Without Supervision

Welcome to Cook County, Illinois, where crime often has no meaningful consequences.  Between a State’s Attorney’s Office reluctant to file charges and judges who mollycoddles defendants, Chicagoland has become the modern Wild West.

Dick’s Ed Stack Keeps Virtue Signaling While Competitors Take His Market Share
