    These guys should reconsider their tactics and choice of victims. They might get caught up with and off duty Cop who’s practiced this scenario and could have their young life come to a screaming hault, just saying.

    Or possibly an ex cop with a conceal and carry who will happily teach them the error of their ways.

    Might I also add, how nice that they described the folks as something other than "three males". At least we can be on the lookout, although any further details (height, weight, age etc) would be good also.

    Chicago man freed from prison, given $25 million. He spent his second chance rebuilding his old gang
    The top was down on Thaddeus Jimenez's shiny Mercedes convertible and opera music blared on the stereo as he and a gang associate drove around Chicago's Northwest Side looking for someone to shoot. Just three years earlier, Jimenez had won a staggering $25 million verdict for his wrongful murder conviction.

  • He has 8 more years to go in jail for federal gun charges , but would not be surprised if he's out by 2020 for good behavior, then he'll face state charges for shooting the other pillar of the community whom I'm betting will refuse to testify against him for fear and he'll get paroled for another 5 years or so until he does something stupid again.

  • Fortunately his 'victim' is suing BJ for his last pennies and will be giving sworn testimony that I'm guessing can be used by prosecutors?

Man Stops Home Invasion, Which Was Caught On Tape

A security camera was rolling just after 9 a.m. Monday as three masked men entered a backyard in the 3300 block of Warner Street and tried to force their way into the home.

    Man Stops Home Invasion, Which Was Caught On Tape
    CHICAGO (CBS) - Three home invaders are caught on tape and Chicago police are hoping the public can provide clues that lead to an arrest. In the video, they had a crowbar ready. However, as CBS 2's Roseanne Tellez reports, they weren't ready for the greeting they got at the door.
    http://chicago.cbslocal.com

  • Scary. Wish the guy that answered had a gun and popped them all.

  • St. Eve Now is the only thing that's real.

    The pathetic piece of human garbage with the yellow crowbar looks like he's about to break down in tears and/or s**t himself when they're greeted at the door. What a miserable group of subhuman scumbags.
