Chicago’s Top Cop Reiterates Intent To Put Away Repeat Offenders

posted on August 30, 2016

Just last week we reported on the efforts of Chicago police to combat the city’s deadly violence with real action—putting offenders behind bars. Now, with Chicago back in the news following the murder of NBA player Dwyane Wade’s cousin, Nykea Aldridge, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is doubling down on his promise to clamp down on criminals. 

Johnson addressed the broken criminal justice system at a press conference Sunday. “Darwin Sorrells was let out on parole for unlawful use of a weapon in February. His brother, Derren Sorrells, was involved in a murder not only while he was on parole, but while he was wearing a home monitoring bracelet,” Johnson said, referring to the men—known gang members—who killed Aldridge. 

“It’s time to stop talking and to get serious and take action when it comes to how we sentence our repeat gun offenders,” Chicago’s top cop declared. “I’m frustrated, you should be frustrated, all Chicagoans should be frustrated.”
