Self Cleaning OvenSince Cook County can’t or won’t do their job, we’ll leave it to the street to dish out justice.

“A Chicago man accused of murder who beat his case when prosecutors couldn’t give him a speedy trial was killed after leaving Cook County Jail on Monday night, according to authorities.

Kamari Belmont, 23, was being held on separate murder and robbery cases stemming from a single night in 2015 in which he was accused of shooting one man during a robbery who later died and robbing another man a couple of hours later.

Cook County prosecutors in January dropped murder charges against Belmont and his co-defendant, Terrance Hogan, 23, after allowing too much time to elapse under the state’s speedy trial statute without bringing the case to trial…

At 5:30 p.m. Monday, a friend of Belmont’s posted $10,000 bond. Belmont was released at 11:12 p.m.

Someone pulled alongside him in a white SUV on California Avenue a couple of blocks south of Cook County Jail on Monday night before midnight and started shooting. Belmont was shot multiple times.

The white SUV crashed, and those inside fled, according to police. Belmont collapsed in the street trying to flee and died at the scene.”

In summary, Cook County did nothing in two years other than release an alleged killer and blow massive amounts of taxpayer cash yet the street handled its business in 6 hours.
