Once again, the CWB blog is the only one covering crimes against the police – this one slipped under our radar from last week:
Attempted murder charges were filed Sunday against a reputed gang member who allegedly fired shots at a Chicago cop who approached him on the Far North Side this weekend. Court records show a judge found the man — who has several large gang-related tattoos on his face and neck — not guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm in July 2019.
He and the cops exchanged gunfire with no one being hit.
The judge who let him go previously?
According to court records, on May 28, 2018, Chicago police accused Jasso of having a gun after they approached him for urinating on the street about four blocks from where Saturday’s shoot-out occurred. Prosecutors charged him with being a felon in possession of a firearm, and a grand jury later returned a true bill accusing him of six felony gun charges, records show.
Jasso took the case to a bench trial before Judge Timothy Chambers in July 2019. Chambers found him not guilty on all counts, according to court documents.
Chambers didn’t even find him guilty of pissing on the sidewalk.
Someone up north remembers this piece of shit and comments:
- Since this is a public forum I don’t say too much but if you work north it would behoove you to acquaint yourself with him and his brother who lived together at the same location. You can see by the tats who he is affiliated with. Examine the rap sheets, arrest reports, case reports for your safety and I really mean that as someone who has dealt with them in the past. It’s disheartening to read he was acquitted again. There is no justice in Cook County. Be cautious and safe.
Must be a pretty interesting rap sheet.
