Illinois State’s Attorney Declares Gang Wars Legal

A gangland shootout that left one participant dead and was filmed on police video has resulted in no criminal charges.  The five participants who survived were arrested after a standoff and seventy five shell casings were recovered but Illinois State’s Attorney Kim Foxx refused to bring charges against the gang members because the shootout was between “mutual combatants.”

I am in awe of this decision.  She doesn’t want to take a chance of blaming whichever was the “innocent” gang.  Well, they do say it’s better that a hundred guilty men go free rather than one innocent man go to jail.

To my mind the correct strategy is to sell all the gangs better weapons.  If they had rocket propelled grenade launchers they could do this thing right.  No more survivors.  Luckily we will soon have an influx of Afghans into Chicago and they’ll set these gangbangers straight on how you fight a war.

Bet she’d prosecute the Hell out of a homeowner who defends his property, though.

Yeaaa! This means that gladiatorial contests to the death are now legal because they are between individual or group mutual combatants. Boy, is this ever gonna liven up the Sunday sports programs.

Duels too! Neighbor doesn’t mow his grass often enough? Challenge him to a duel and shoot him! Put it on YouTube and get lots of hits, monetize it.

Fistfights outside the school devolve into knife fights? It’s cool, it’s mutual!

I’m pretty sure Kim Foxx has proven herself too stupid to be in charge of anything more complicated than toilet cleaning.
