Rapist Turned Loose Offends Again

This is what happens when you turn violent criminals loose on the public. Prosecutors: Rapist who followed woman from Belmont Red Line was supposed to be on electronic monitoring | CWB Chicago

In January of last year he sexually assaulted a woman on the Red Line (one of the transit routes in Chicago).

A grand jury later returned an 18 felony count true bill against Jackson.

Five months ago, prosecutors agreed to drop all of them except one robbery charge in a plea deal that gave Jackson probation. But Jackson didn’t even bother to have a court-ordered electronic monitoring band installed after he was sentenced. And authorities never took him into custody for failing to comply.

This is "The System" that we are supposed to rely on to "keep us safe." A system that turns violent criminals loose to be violent again.

Instead of being home on electronic monitoring, Gumbs said, Jackson was at the Belmont Red Line station around 3:45 a.m. March 14 when a 29-year-old woman caught his eye.

Surveillance footage allegedly shows Jackson following the woman from the platform, onto Belmont Avenue, and then down the street as she walked home.

I wonder what plea deal they will come up with this time.

  1. Let's see, the recidivism rate for rapists is somewhere close to 100%, so what could go wrong.
