Shawn Kimbrough told authorities he “does stupid stuff when he drinks” before he was arrested for firing a collapsible rifle on a Metra train platform at McCormick Place, Cook County prosecutors said. No one was injured in the Dec. 1 incident but the 40-year-old’s alleged actions were more than stupid, Judge Mary Marubio suggested Tuesday.
“This was a very deliberate discharge,” Marubio said before ordering Kimbrough held on $500,000 bail for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a firearm without a FOID card and reckless discharge of a firearm.
But if we recall correctly (and CWB blog reported correctly):
- Two different carjackers – who were sober when they made the conscious decision to commit their crimes – had bail set at $10,000 and were able to post $1,000 to get out of county.
Someone want to investigate the disparate bails granted by Cook County judges?
Someone like the media?
