Re: IL: Chicago CCL holder kills armed robber on street

Further info:

The deceased robber was out of jail for a whole two months before he decided to try to mug the wrong gal.
The teen had a record of arrests, mostly for drug charges. But last June, he was charged with attacking a sergeant and a police officer after he and his father were arrested during a narcotics raid in Englewood where the father lived, according to court records.

[...] As police escorted the younger Goings downstairs, he became “very irate, stiffened up’’ and “pushed”’ and “grabbed’’ a sergeant, the report said. Another officer got him under control and into a police car.

Goings was charged with six counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer...

....but they were dropped in October after the teen pleaded guilty to a drug charge. He was given probation and released from jail in early November, just days before his 19th birthday.

If he had been prosecuted properly he would still be alive.
