Tweet the police: "FATAL STABBING @ Clinton / Fairmont occured around 3am, adult male stabbed in head and chest. 1 Arrest has been made."
That area NE of Patterson Park again... I know it's called Linwood but what do people actually call it?

Byers and Goodman Guilty!

Frank Goodman and Patrick Byers were found guilty by a federal jury for the contract killing of Carl Lackl yesterday, after one day of deliberation. Byers faces the death penalty.

Funeral yesterday for 16-year-old Dominic Baker, whose body was found last week in a vacant rowhome, but not much hand-wringing or sympathy from the chancel: "Dominic could've been the trigger puller."

Oh shiz, they got KG, Dee and Ray .. and 21 more Guerrrilla 'Death Angels'

What's more luxurious than crab imperial and Grey Goose?
When it's smuggled into prison for you by your personal staff of "Death Angels"!
A mass indictment announced yesterday by federal and local law enforcement targeting the Black Guerrilla Family has steamy details on the smuggling ring that dealt in slutty guards, bottle clubs and death dealt from prison.
... here's the PR from RJR
and Hermann's take
(there seem to be two indictments, both for conspiracy but for two different groups, one group conspiring to sell heroin and the other for other drugs?)

The Byers case went to the jury yesterday afternoon

Love & Herring Not Guilty

of misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment. Said Love, "I put my life in jeopardy to save the lives of everyone in the barbershop and if you had been there, I’d do the same thing for you."
Herring now feels differently: "If I see an old lady getting beaten, I’m going to mind my own business."

Mom of murder victim Timothy Hebron has "hired a lawyer to investigate" why her son was not in a witness protection program

Lawyers spared! "When the General Assembly trimmed nearly $870 million in the Fiscal Year 2010 budget, the final cut did not include funding for the state’s legal services community."

Hermann reports that a "new study coming out today from the Sentencing Project shows that for the first time since the War on Drugs began many years ago, the number of African-Americans jailed for drug offenses has declined."

Say What? Off-Leash Fines Increased to $1,000 per Pooch?

Says the Smushnose Dog Meetup Group
Dog Owners/Walkers BEWARE

New City laws increase the cost of violations for off leash dogs and/or not picking up the dog’s poop from $100 to $1,000!

The City did not communicate the new laws to the citizens and began to enforce it without notification or advanced warning.

The City has been conducting “raids” at most of the larger parks with Animal Control issuing citations and police officers present to ensure owners do not flee the scene.

Please join us for a conversation with Councilman Ed Reisinger. He has agreed to talk with us about the decisions that have been made at the city council level, why they were made, and to help find a way to address the needs of the entire community.

Thursday, April 16th 2009, 7:00 p.m.
Riverside Park Pavilion [The Mansion]

Let’s show the city how much we care about the welfare of our dogs and their ability to get safe exercise. Bring your friends and neighbors. Show up in packs!!
