Dennis H. Boston, IV, of Urbana, IL commits an armed robbery for which he is caught, acting like a grade A thieving thug. The local State’s Attorney pled away two other armed robberies – with a firearm no less – along with another aggravated robbery.
Four robberies and this scumbag is allowed to skate with probation? And then he’s allowed to leave the state to attend college in Missouri? How long will it take before he’s committing armed robberies on that campus? Would you want your son or daughter attending class alongside this piece of human debris?
And the wizards of smart in Springfield want additional gun ownership restrictions on us law-abiding folks.
It’s enough to make a fella mad.

I would like to draw your attention to the article in today’s News-Gazette, titled “Armed Theft of iPad outside coffee shop nets probation”.
Here you have, neatly encapsulated, everything that is wrong with our gun grabber crowd: we do NOT enforce the laws on the book already. No way should that perp have gotten probation after use of a firearm in commission of a robbery. Bet you also that he did not have a FOID card.
So let’s pass a few more laws restricting law abiding Citizen’s second amendment rights.
Here’s a video of the armed robbery as it occurred.
Armed theft of iPad outside coffee shop nets probation
URBANA (News-Gazette) — A man who robbed a 48-year-old Champaign man of his iPad outside a campus coffee shop in 2010 has been sentenced to 18 months of probation.
Dennis H. Boston IV, 20, who listed an address in the 1600 block of East Florida Avenue, Urbana, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to theft.
As part of a plea agreement, two other charges of armed robbery armed with a firearm and aggravated robbery were dismissed.
Judge Harry Clem sentenced Boston to 18 months of probation and nine days in jail, with credit for the nine days he has already served in jail.
Boston is also required to complete 30 hours of community service.
The judge allowed a motion by Boston’s attorney, Myron Goldstin, for Boston to leave the state to attend college in Missouri.
