    IL: Woman jailed for using handgun to defend herself

    https://herald-review.com/news/local...6ccd97187.html



    Police responded to man who went to hospital with GSW. Man told police his ex-wife shot him in front of his home.

    Police contacted her and say she shot him in self-defense when he was beating her inside of her car. She sustained injuries to her face and had a shunt in her head from previous injury, which per police spokesman could make a blow to head fatal.

    Man was arrested and preliminarily charged with domestic battery and unlawful vehicular invasion. He poste $10K bond was was released.

    She was arrested and preliminarily charged with aggravated unlawful use of a firearm for not having a carry license and is held (as of writing of article) on $75K bond.

    Macon County State's Attorney office has jurisdiction.


    Since there's the implication she was beaten before by him, I have no idea why she would be in front of his house. They do have a 3 yo child (lucky kid is probably in CPS hands now), so maybe there was a visitation event going on? Doesn't mention child was present?

    But as the article presents the story, this is a travesty.

    Often those in that situation don't have a track record of stellar decision making.


    Nevertheless, it's outrageous that she's held with a $75K bond and his is only $10K, above a beyond even being charged.

    If the facts come out and support her account, these are the kinds of cases that can encourage positive changes in the law.

    I though it was this story,
    https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/11...little-village

    Thatís when the 14-year-old pulled out a pellet gun, struck Diaz on the head with it and tried to take the womanís property without paying for it, according to police, who didnít say what was for sale.

    Diaz then allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot the teen in the chest.

    Diaz, who has a valid FOID card but no concealed carry license, was arrested in Cicero about an hour after the shooting, police said
    But I guess it was another one.

    It's Illinois. They don't care. They won't care, ( and you can't make them ) until they literally run the entire state into the ground and the feds have to take over. They they'll be crying about tyranny. Literally the only solution short of a federal takeover is for the non Chicago counties to petition congress to form another state..

    Sounds like a good case for jury nullification if the jury pool wasnít a bunch of brainwashed sheep, which Iím sure they are.
