A gun shop owner says Sincere Williams burglarized his store months ago, and should not have been on the street when the Walgreens murder occurred.
Williams, now 18, was arrested and charged with burglary at the time. And the gun shop owner said Williams should still have been off the streets at the time Cook County prosecutors said he murdered Walgreens clerk Olga Marie Calderon – and she should still be alive today.
The owner of Suburban Sporting Goods Guns & Ammo told CBS 2 that Williams attempted to steal 14 handguns from his store and should not have been on the streets when the teen allegedly killed Walgreens clerk Olga Marie Calderon.
Williams allegedly took a bus to Melrose Park in Chicago, where the gun store is located, in May armed with a hammer. The gun store owner said Williams smashed the front glass at least 20 times before breaking in and taking 14 handguns. He was quickly arrested and charged as a juvenile even though he was two months away from his 18th birthday.
“That’s a pretty heinous crime,” the gun store owner told CBS 2. “These weren’t hunting guns. He wasn’t stealing to feed his family. These were likely going somewhere very bad.”
“I was kind of enraged. It’s like, here’s this kid that broke into a gun store and stole several firearms,” the owner said of Williams being charged as a juvenile. “Just because he was caught, it doesn’t lessen the severity of the crime.” More
If the general public knew how often this happens with juveniles they would be infuriated. Juveniles are committing violent crimes and then being released to their parents because of the way the juvenile system is set up in some states. It’s a continuous struggle to keep juveniles in detention and stop them from committing more and more violent crimes.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
