How's That Affordable Bail Working Out?

Sixteen and counting. Sixteen victims that is. In Chicago. #16: Man chased down and killed victim while on electronic monitoring for gun case, prosecutors say | CWB Chicago

A man who was on home electronic monitoring for a gun charge shot and killed another man on a Far South Side street earlier this month, prosecutors said Sunday. Semaj Dixon, 21, is the 16th person charged with killing, trying to kill, or shooting someone in Chicago this year while on bond for another felony case.

Because keeping violent offenders in jail is unfair.

Last time he was arrested for burglarizing a car, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. he was released on electronic monitoring, and had to pay $500 to be released.

This time, there is GPS evidence (from the monitoring anklet), security video, and eye witness testimony (he was picked out of a photo lineup), and he had gunshot residue on his pants.

This time he was ordered held without bail. Too bad someone had to die for a judge to decide that he should be held.
