Thanks to people like Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart & Illinois Senator Bill Cunningham who keeps pushing & passing laws for the early release of CAREER CRIMINALS... this feral Negro had a chance to commit yet another felony...
JOLIET, IL — If you’re going to rob a car, make sure police officers aren’t sitting in it first.
Derrick J. Smith, 35, of the 1300 block of Pequot, learned that the hard way Tuesday night.
Tactical officers with the Joliet Police Department were in the 1300 block of Pequot in an unmarked squad car with heavily tinted windows looking for a wanted person in the area. The headlights of the car were on and the engine was running.
“That’s when Smith approached the unmarked squad and started looking into the windows,” Joliet Deputy Police Chief Ed Gregory said. “He had gloves on his hands and was peering into the window of the squad.”
Smith, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, put his hands in his pockets and was then holding something in his hand, Gregory said. Officers in the car, believing Smith was going to try to rob them, exited the squad and told Smith they were Joliet police. That's when Smith took off running.
