Remember The Bump 'n' Run Lexus Incident On Ashland? Man's Been Arrested...And You Won't Believe The Rest

Cannon (inset) is facing a long list of charges...again | Lexus; Cook County Sheriff
NEW: At the age of 13, Cannon was shot by Chicago police when he pointed a gun at them and refused orders to lower it, authorities said at the time. The weapon turned out to be a realistic-looking BB gun. Family members claimed that Cannon was "a 13-year-old innocent child just having fun in the park" when police rolled up and shot him 8 times. Thanks to the reader who tipped us off to the story.
------------------
Remember the woman whose Lexus got stolen by a bump ’n’ run crew in the middle of Ashland Avenue recently?

Cops made an arrest in the case and you will *not* believe what we learned: The accused man was charged with a nearly identical set of crimes earlier this year, but the state dropped all charges last month.

Around 3:45 p.m. on May 27, a driver intentionally bumped his car into the rear of an Elmwood Park woman’s Lexus in the 2900 block of North Ashland. When the woman got out of her car to inspect the damage, two people ran from the colliding vehicle, got into her car and sped away.

Eight hours later, cops in Garfield Park saw the stolen Lexus speeding from the area of a shots fired call. They say the driver ran two stop lights and a stop sign before crashing in the 100 block of North Pulaski. Cops chased the driver on foot, caught up with him, wrestled as he fought back, and eventually tased the man, prosecutors said.

19-year-old Jimmell Cannon of Lawndale was treated for injuries and is charged with criminal trespass to vehicle, resisting police, aggravated fleeing; driving on a suspended license, driving without insurance, and multiple traffic violations.

Now, get this:

On February 6, cops in Garfield Park said they saw Jimmell Cannon driving a Volkswagen Passat that had been stolen in Edgewater. They tried to pull him over, but Cannon ran three stop signs and a stop light before they called off the chase in the interest of public safety.

A month later, Cannon was arrested as he reported to court for an unrelated matter. Prosecutors charged him with (this may sound familiar) criminal trespass to vehicle, aggravated fleeing, driving on a suspended license, and multiple traffic violations.

Then, on May 4—three weeks before he was allegedly running from police in the Lakeview Lexus—the state dropped all charges and Cannon walked free.

His bail is set at $50,000.

  2. Link to his Facebook page (sorry, last pic is from 2011) - https://www.facebook.com/jimmell.cannon.7

    There is so much that bothers me about this but what bothers me the most is the lasting memory the victim will always carry with her about the incident. He will most likely never show any remorse for his rotten behavior and go on to live the life he's always wanted . It's pathetic. He's pathetic

    2. Throwing gangs signs at the age of 13. I wonder what the older members had him doing when he was still a minor.

    4. If you want change you have to be the change call the States Attorney's Office demand that charges are not dropped especially in repeat offenses; charge criminal accordingly; Vehicular Theft...why don't they charge the guilty/ They certainly charge and convict more than enough innocent people!

    2. Ill second that. No interest in putting criminals in jail. No interest in victims rights. Our prosecutor is for criminals. Lucky us.

  7. Are you kidding me. This city is out of control and the judicial system is a joke. Government won't protect the people and the people won't hold government accountable. It's time to move.

  8. I searched to see if anyone else was covering this story and instead I learned that Jimmell Cannon has been in trouble with Police since he was at least 13 years old. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Officers-Shoot-13-Year-Old-Boy-BB-Gun-126165228.html A key point in this article says "Cannon's family disagrees, saying he's a good kid who isn't friends with the wrong crowd"

    2. So, you're 13 years old.
      You bring a (BB) gun to a public park in Austin.
      Because, what? You're family says they're 'just lingering'.
      You fail to put the gun down when told to.
      You then point the gun at cops.
      ...A (failed) suicide-by-cop...
      And now the little antisocial stump is causing more trouble??? Shock me.

  10. As a political platform, this works how? What was the campaign promise that made releasing dangerous criminals back onto the streets okay? Why are we surrendering our families to guys who have already proven that they have no regard for the safety or property of others? So many obvious questions, so little time/honesty/regard for decent folk.

  11. According to big city mayors we all have to learn to live with crime and terrorism--but NOT dissent. I get it.

    1. The London mayors comment was the equivalent of a "It's a big city and these things just happen" that you hear in Chicago daily.

  12. Can an inquiry be sent to the State's Attorneys office for an explanation why the charges were dropped? Didn't Foxx say she believed in transparency and accountability?

    ReplyDelete
  13. So the question is: When does Cannon run successfully for alderman?

  15. Not charged with Possession of a stolen motor vehicle, only criminal trespass to vehicle. Cook county, making felonies misdemeanors for the disenfranchised youth.

  16. Because there were keys in the vehicle and it's a lesser crime that the ASA doesn't have to "prove". Remember ASA's prove their worthiness by convictions, not from actual crime reduction.

  19. Yet, States Attorney Kim Foxx will NOT pursue charges in court!

    Time to Vote Kim Foxx and Toni Preckwinkle out of office!

  20. CWB, I have a question. If the States Attorney / Kim Foxx lets someone off and then they rob/hurt me doing the exact same crime, can I sue the States Attorney? Perhaps if people sue the State's Attorney / Kim Foxx for Damages it will get them to start doing the right thing?
