    Prosecutor: Man killed because of the way he wore his hat

    Prosecutor: Man killed because of the way he wore his hat - chicagotribune.com"Wearing his hat cocked to the right got an innocent 19-year-old Zion man killed early Sunday, Lake County prosecutors said today.
    Jose M. Garcia, 18, of the 600 block of Deepwoods, Mundelein, and Jose Rebollar-Verara, 24, of the 500 block of N. Carol Lane, Round Lake Park, thought that the tilt of Gabriel Gonzales’ hat indicated that he was a member of a rival gang, said Lake County Assistant State’s Atty. Ken LaRue.
    Gonzales was leaving the One Stop Food and Liquor store, at 1015 Fairfield Road at about 12:45 a.m., when Garcia and Rebollar-Verara followed him outside and began flashing gang signs, LaRue said. Gonzales turned to run away and Garcia shot at him ten times, hitting him once in the back, LaRue said."

    "There is no information that Gonzales was in a gang, LaRue said.
    Garcia has 30 previous arrests as a juvenile and adult - including six convictions for domestic battery, LaRue said. Rebollar-Verara has eight previous arrests, including two weapons convictions, he said."

    Continually we hear of the desire to create new gun laws, laws which invariably target only law abiding citizen. When the discussion turns to enforcement of existing laws or mandatory minimums, there is always an excuse, a justification for behavior, or a reason why those laws would be unfair. Meanwhile...another innocent man is dead at the hands of someone with 6 domestic battery arrests and two prior firearms convictions. No...this victim isn't a cute little white face school kid that can be repeatedly exploited...but he was somebodies 'child', and he is dead...and it will be ignored.

    So the "perp" is 18 yrs old and has 30 priors including weapons/firearms related convictions. Someone should ask what the mom and dad were doing during this time their precious baby was terrorizing the neighborhood. Someone should also ask what the bleeding heart courts were doing to take this creature off the streets for a long stretch of time - clearly, he didn't serve much time if he's 18 and was out on the streets. Perhaps, one of his community organizer friends vouched for this upstanding young man and pledged to set him on the right track in life but then got busy with other things.

    What's an 18-year old gangbanger with 30 arrests and six domestic battery convictions doing out of jail?

    Given the six domestic battery convictions, it sounds like they were getting the **** kicked out of them.

    Maybe he was a "get out the vote" organizer for team Barry and now had some free time on his hands.

    That's possible - but I'll bet the big man had a couple of bitches and they were giving him lip so he showed them who's the man.

    In five years we'll be hearing about how someone else was killed by a 23 year old with 31 arrests, 6 domestic battery convictions, and 1 murder conviction.

    In a couple of years he'll be crying and pleading with the guards asking them to stop the big guys from getting all horny on his ass and wishing he'd had a little more respect for human life when he had a chance.

    Stupid gang wars. No wonder we have so many murders in the USA. They kill because of wearing a hat the wrong way, wearing the wrong color, or just giving someone a "dirty look."

    and Salt Lake City used to be a safe place to be.

    So, why, you might ask yourself, was this wild animal not locked up? Why, because there isn't room in prison for violent criminals, what with all the potheads and crack addicts that have to be kept in jail as enemy combatants in the war on drugs.

    But it's way easier to pass ineffective gun laws than it is to stop gang violence.

    No, he isn't a cute white faced school kid, which shouldn't matter in the least.

    But, unfortunately, it does.
