Go to a bar get into a fight with cops,shoot at cops who are attending a party with more cops inside the building. What were you thinking you dumb ass!!!. What you did is just like throwing rocks at a BEEs nest. Although i admit i have never seen BEEs carry guns. You got what you deserved.

Cicero Police Take Down High-Ranking Gang-banger
7/1/2008 5:00:00 PM
Cicero, Illinois... Robert English is back where he belongs: behind bars.
On Saturday, Cicero Gang Crimes Tactical officers arrested English, a known, high-ranking leader of a local street gang with an extensive criminal history, on felony unlawful use of a weapon (UUW) charges after arriving at the 1300 block of South 57th Court in response to a citizen report of a man with a gun. Eyewitnesses advised police that English was pointing a firearm at residents in the neighborhood as they passed by.
Prior to his arrest on Saturday by Cicero police, English had been out on bond awaiting trial for: armed robbery charges in Chicago; child endangerment charges in Berwyn, and aggravated battery charges of a Cicero police officer in Cicero.
Cicero police officers recovered the firearm identified as belonging to English on the 1300 block of South 59th Court and got approval from Felony Review of the Cook County State's Attorney's office for the following charges against English:
720 ILCS 5/24-1.6, Aggravated Unlawful Use of A Weapon by a Felon (3 counts)
720 ILCS 5/24-1(a)4, Aggravated UUW by a Felon within 1000' of a Park
At a preliminary hearing in the Maybrook Court (Maywood) this morning, English's bond was revoked and he is now behind bars awaiting trial.
"This guy should have not been on our streets in the first place," said Town President Larry Dominick. "I'm just glad that he did not hurt anyone else, that we had citizens step up and identify this thug so that our police could do the excellent work they did to ensure that we do not see Mr. English back in Cicero for a long, long time--like never."

English out on bond for two felonies,and one misdemeanor,were his bonds not violated after a subseqent arrest oh wait all the charges were in the 4th District Court Maybrook,so
Haro won't get what he deserves 80 years. If a few Judges in the 4th district cant set bonds to keep someone off the street Haro has nothing to worry about.Part of the problem with gangbangers are the Judges not having the balls to keep people like English or Haro away from society.

Until you have been in a running gun battle, trying to stay alive, maybe you should keep your mouth shut. and had the police killed one of the bad guys you would probably be bashing them for that. some people are just never happy. sounds like the police did a good job to me, catching the bad guys, which is what we pay them to do.

Not bad for a Cicero arrest. That is a once a week thing in Chicago. When his is convicted in the federal building I will give you some credit. Right now it is just AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAver age.
