ONLY IN CHICAGO: Man threatening to bring Orlando to Chicago released from jail

May 3, 2018


Meet Shane Sleeper, aged old enough to know better.  He threatened to commit a mass murder at Sidetrack, a gay bar in the Boystown neighborhood of Chicago.  "Orlando will come to Chicago," he messaged.

Cook County prosecutors actually got off their hind quarters and filed a slew of charges against Mr. Sleeper.  CWBChicago has the list:

In court on Tuesday morning, prosecutors dropped the two misdemeanor cases that Sleeper had been held on and introduced ten “true bills” from a grand jury that charged Sleeper with much more serious crimes: two felony counts of terrorism-false threat; two felony counts of hate crime; two felony counts of stalking; seven felony counts of harassment-threatening to kill; three felony counts of repeated harassment-threatening to kill; felony impersonation of a peace officer; felony impersonation of an attorney; and misdemeanor counts of assault, electronic harassment-threat; phone harassment; repeated phone harassment; criminal trespass; and two counts of misdemeanor electronic harassment-obscene proposition.

Terrorism false threat?  Does he become innocent of that charge if he carries out his threat?  Isn't it a little early to proceed on the assumption that Mr. Sleeper is just a talker, and not a doer?

In any event, a judge ordered him held without bail.  So what did Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart do? 

He released Sleeper.

Of course, many in Chicago are panicked with Sleeper on the lam. 


Dead or alive?

_SLEEPERSleeper is white, 5’11” tall and weighs 185 pounds, police said on Wednesday.

Sleeper’s last known home address was at 3550 North Lake Shore Drive. During a request for lower bail in March, Sleeper told Judge Anthony Calabrese that he had a friend in Andersonville who had offered him shelter. His request for lowered bail was denied.

Police asked anyone with information about Sleeper’s whereabouts to call 911.

You know the drill.  If you see Mr. Sleeper prowling Chicago's streets, especially if armed in Boystown, call the police.

Remember, armed gays don't get bashed.  Or slaughtered – like in the Muslim terror attack in Orlando.

    Shane Sleeper is gay and supposedly pissed about how the gay bar he worked at as well as the patrons treated him. obviously he has problems with everyone. If he wasn't gay the fraud lying garbage media would be trying to make him out as a right winger / conservative / pro Trump / gun owner, etc. If the psycho is gay, trans, non white, etc. they get a pass.

    Then sheriff dumbsh*t should be locked up for contempt, writ, obstructing justice or anything else he can be charged with. I am however glad to see the states attorney finally do the correct thing.

    Why bother calling 911?  Are they just going to let him out again?  18 felony and  7 misdemeanor.  We need to carry everywhere for protection from those with eval in their hearts. What does it take to be held in Cook County jail?  I agree that Tommy Dart needs to be locked up in that jail.

      I’m guessing if you carry your weapon into one of Rahm’s “no gun” zones, then Sheriff ReDart would lock you up and keep you there. Be an actual threat like this guy in the article…. not so much. 

      Good luck if you choose to go to Chicago. My family keeps hounding me to return there so they can visit friends that we left behind when I moved us out of downtown Chicago/Illinois. I was over all the crap there. I refuse to go back to the state until law abiding citizens can utilize their carry permits from their home states. Whether that affects me or not is irrelevant, it’s about principle. Where is that National Reciprocity again for those who aren’t fortunate enough to have an LE badge?!

      Stay safe everyone!

    How to keep guns from the hands of the bad guys?

    You have to greatly restrict access to them.

    They have to be locked up.

    Law enforcement must constantly monitor their condition.

    You never want to ammunition near them.

    After we get the courts to enforce the laws with longer terms of prison terms, the bad guys will either be locked away or learn that their behaver is not acceptable.   

    Yes, lock-up the bad guys and leave the law obey abiding citizen be.


    No should be no such thing as a gun free zone. 

    A public access area means all are free as law abiding persons are free to enter. 

    If you want no firearms into an area, make it private entry with membership controlled access only.
