Honor Student of the Week

Posted on December 4, 2014

Latasha SmithThis week’s honor student hails from West Garfield Park, where she enjoys kidnapping, armed robbery and trolling online dating sites for victims. Meet Latasha Smith:

“Latasha Smith, 28, allegedly used the online dating site Badoo to meet up with a 28-year-old Woodlawn man late last month, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Lorraine Scaduto.

[…] Smith and an unknown accomplice abducted the man as he was working near 15th Street and Keeler Avenue, Scaduto said. The man allegedly was hit in his head with a gun, tied up with duct tape and blindfolded.

Smith stole $600, keys and an iPhone, according to a police report.”

As if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s more…

“Smith then made her way to the victim’s home in Woodlawn, where she and unknown accomplices held up the victim’s mother at gunpoint, Scaduto said. Smith stole $6,000 from the victim’s mom, who had been saving up for a new apartment, according to prosecutors.

The group also took a .40-caliber Smith and Wesson handgun, plus two magazines, a police report shows.”

Looks as if Latasha is going to have to update her online dating profile to include various felonies and make it known that she’s not a cheap date.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    Any information on how many little darlings the taxpayers will be supporting while this PhD candidate goes to college for a few years? We’ve been supporting them anyway I’m sure, but does it cost more to support an incarcerated Honor Student’s little money makers?

      it takes a village (of taxpayers – lots of ’em) to fill the void. do unknown accomplices qualify as taxpayers?

    Can you euthanize her? Would save us all a lot of money.

    I keep reading her last name as ‘Smith’ when clearly it it ‘Smiff’. Must be a typo.

    Well, looks like we should set her up with these 3 losers, as her dating site isn’t cutting it:
    Jesse, Barack and Rahm: Each of these guys would just love to be with her and help her get her life straightened out, I’m sure.
