SHERIFF, firearm smuggled in county jail

Sun-Times (Stefano Esposito and Annie Sweeney):
Investigators looking into a bizarre shooting that slightly injured three Cook County Jail inmates are considering whether the inmates wounded themselves -- after somehow smuggling in the gun -- so they could be hospitalized and then escape, sources said Thursday.

That's one of the theories being explored as investigators try to piece together not only how Wednesday night's shooting took place, but why, a law enforcement source said.

If I wanted to get transfered to the infirmary I can think of many schemes less elaborate than smuggling a firearm into the county jail.

Does anybody else get the impression the sheriff's department is kinda... learning disabled?


  • Cook County is filled with corruption and patronage, and there is only one man to blame....President john stroger
