Most folks have heard of Chicago-style pizza.  That’s something else Chicago is known for as well.  Chicago-style criminal “justice” – or lack thereof.   It’s bad enough that in the Land of Lincoln, prison sentences are mere suggestions. They’re kinda like dog years in reverse.  But if you add prosecutors who don’t prosecute, it becomes a hellscape of criminal violence without much in the way of consequences.

Take the case of Samuel Parsons-Salas, released on parole early for a double-fatal home invasion in 2009. Just a few weeks out of lockup, he shot four, killing three execution-style in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s mostly peaceful city. The fourth victim is in critical condition.

Soft-on-crime Cook County prosecutors dropped not one, not two, but ten murder counts in that 2009 case in return for a plea bargain deal. In what may be the mother of all sweetheart plea deals, prosecutors dropped a total of thirty felony charges in the case to get a mere eight years in prison for a double-fatal home invasion.

Once released on parole just a day shy of four years in IDOC, the Illinois Department of Corrections peeps  reported that Parsons-Salas — SURPRISE! — failed to check in with his parole officer. Now three more people are dead.

Here’s video of the incident . . .

CWB Chicago has the horrific story to go along with the horrific video . . .

Surveillance video captured the cold-blooded, execution-style murders of three people outside a Chicago bar over the weekend, and officials say the killer is a man who was paroled less than three months ago for a 2009 home invasion that left two people dead. He faced ten counts of murder in the home invasion case, but prosecutors dropped those charges in a plea deal.

The weekend shooting video, provided to CWBChicago by a source, shows a group arguing near Vera Lounge at the corner of Central Avenue and School Street around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

A man is seen walking backward, pulling a gun, and shooting another man from close range. The victim drops to the ground…

On Tuesday night, Chicago police said Samuel Parsons-Salas, 32, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder, and kidnapping. He is due in bond court on Wednesday.

The shooting left three people dead: a 24-year-old woman, a 26-year-old man, and a 59-year-old man, police said. Another 24-year-old woman remains hospitalized and gravely wounded.

And yet Chicago’s “leaders” can’t seem to grasp why the city has an intractable violent crime problem.

Hint: It’s because of a lack of gun control laws, a number of which Mr. Parsons-Salas ignored if police suspicions are correct.  (That’s sarcasm for those with impair sarcastic sensors…)





One thought on “REIMAGINING CRIMINAL JUSTICE, CHICAGO STYLE: Released early from prison, freshly paroled killer shoots three executition-style in Chicago [VIDEO]”
  1. Bring back the death penalty, include the “prosecutor” that pled down the felonies and previous murders as an accomplice.
