From the 2d City Coppers

Court Hit...Again

This is getting to be a bad habit - three times now, people leaving court are shot:
  • The black SUV came barreling toward the Cook County criminal courthouse Friday morning with three bullets in its side.

    It stopped just outside the front steps and a woman dressed in purple got out and screamed for help, witnesses said.

    “She jumped out and started hollering, ‘Help, help, help, he’s dying,’” said Margo Porche, 64.

    Inside the SUV was Kenneth Williams who had been shot twice in the chest, police sources said. Williams was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:10 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

    Williams, 28, had just appeared at the courthouse Friday morning and had pleaded not guilty to a charge of driving on a revoked or suspended license, according to police and court records.

    He apparently got into an argument with someone as he left, police said. He and the woman, 26, had gotten as far as 31st and Rockwell streets, about half a mile away, when someone in another car pulled up to their SUV and fired at them around 11:15 a.m., police said.
There ought to be a safety bulletin coming out for persons attending court. Unless....

We speculated before that this may be a way for Dart to keep the jail empty by having potential inmates murdered.

Or Foxxx to save precious dollars by eliminating future court dates. This guy was at 26th Street for Driving on a Suspended/Revoked License? Foxxx isn't prosecuting that one any more, remember? You need like 50 previous convictions before Foxxx's minions will even touch traffic offenses.

Maybe, just maybe, this is Foxxx sending a message to the police to stop doing traffic arrests or she'll just start killing defendants. 
At least he was able to plead not guilty.
