Chicago judge shot, killed outside his home Login/Join

posted Hide Post
Chicago police say a Cook County judge shot to death Monday morning outside his South Side home might have been the victim of an attempted robbery, though it didn’t appear any possessions were taken from the judge and a woman companion who was wounded.

Citing preliminary information, police said the woman, 52, encountered the gunman by the garage of the two-story brick home in the 9400 block of South Forest Avenue around 4:50 a.m. Words were exchanged and she was shot once in the leg.

"Upon hearing the commotion and the gunshot, Judge (Raymond) Myles exited his residence," Melissa Staples, the chief of detectives, said at a news conference at police headquarters. "(He) exchanged words with the offender before he was fatally shot multiple times."

He did leave the house without a gun to confront the offender. Sounds like the perp was hiding and waiting, but the woman came out first.

I doubt even Chicago thugs get up at 5 in the morning to rob someone. Sounds like a love triangle to me .

If they're like me, they may not have been to bed yet. (I retire around 0300-0500 daily.)

The article said the shooter was Black. (I am not surprised.)

Watch. Now the "system" will get all serious about what they do. Or should I say, don't do.

They shot him without warning. Apparently simply opened fire with the intent to kill them both. Even if he had been armed, not likely he could have done anything to prevent this. And this was, IMO, an ambush.

Something to consider regarding solving this. In August 2008 Adams County (CO) Assistant District Attorney Sean May was gunned down in his driveway in Denver. Still unsolved.

From what I read, the female was shot first. He heard the shots and went outside. It appears he had plenty of warning and could have prevented getting shot.

The ONLY good thing that the old Mayor Daily did was install those big concrete planters and plant trees along all the sidewalks.
Not for the reasons that he did this, but it offers the citizens good HARD COVER!

Well since guns are pretty much banned in Chicago, they should be able to find the person who legally purchased their firearm and carry permit. Isn't that how gun laws work? If only the judge had a no gun sign posted in his yard...

There are a lot of good people in Chicago.

They just don't know how to vote for the right person.

The shooters now rule the city and it is going to be a bloodbath to take it back.

The police need to take a hard ass, take no prisoners approach but the current administration will not allow it.

It's "Da Sou Side". Not a new phenomenon. Mom and Dad and all Da Irish Relatives lived in "Da Sou Side". It was "upscale" then. Not so much now.

It depends on WHERE on Da Sout Side you're at.

94th & Forest, not so much. there's a FEW nice blocks in that area, south of 95th street to about 97th gets a little better, but not much.

I cant believe a Judge would be living THERE... Ehhh, his choice.

You go to Mt Greenwood / Beverly area, West Morgan Park... it's great. Predominantly all Irish, one of the three spots in the City where you see "Trump" & "Make America Great Again" signs on a regular basis. But that's the far south west corner of the City.

Hegwish & "The Avenues" on the far south east side used to be the same. It's s-l-o-w-l-y going to shit, but still kind of holding on.

The area around Midway Airport is nice as well.

North side? HELL YES! Some beautiful neighborhoods up there, however, being a Sox fan, and "Shanty" Irish, they don't let my type venture too far north of Madison Ave without my passport. Wink

If you look at the BLUE areas on the map, there's something about the demographic & socio-economic make up... Something about people who have jobs, settle down, get married, have families, raise their kids, pay taxes...

There's nothing to "see". No matter what turns out to be the details of this particular case, to say "I don't think any thugs get up at 5 in the morning" is just damn silly. Ever hear of staying up all night?

Authorities in Chicago said Wednesday a 37-year-old man has been charged in the killing of a judge who handled criminal cases.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a tweet that Joshua Smith was charged in the shooting death of Associate Cook County Circuit Judge Raymond Myles earlier this week.

No details were immediately released on what led police to Smith, but authorities are planning to hold a press conference at 5:30 p.m. local time.

Earlier on Wednesday, Guglielmi said investigators were "questioning individuals" in the case who were "people of interest," but declined to specify how many.

Myles was shot to death Monday outside his home on Chicago's South Side. A woman he knew also was shot and wounded.

Myles had been involved in several high-profile cases, such as the murder of relatives of singer and actress Jennifer Hudson in 2008, when he ordered William Balfour to be held without bond.

Myles was attacked in 2015 after a minor traffic collision after taking pictures of the damage on his car, according to the Chicago Tribune. The other driver punched him in the face, causing serious injuries, according to court records cited in the newspaper.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward in the case.

Let me help you with this....

The thugs in major cities are just thinking about going somewhere to pass out, shack up, or plain go to bed around 5-6am. They don't work the 8am-5pm thug shift.

Most people know that even inner city bad areas are fairly safe until around 11am or noon. I had clients with facilities in Detroit that would only book appointments before noon just for this reason.

Yep, the vampires, werewolves, and other monsters of the night have gone to bed and it is too early for the (junkie) zombies to be up and wandering around stealing stuff.

I know this is not your average shooting scenario in the Windy City, but it's up to 127 already. It's going to be a long year- be safe up there brothers.
