ARREST #77: Just A Misunderstood Youth

The Chicago Tribune today carries the story of Amarri C. Bowens.

In his short 22 years on this planet, Bowens has racked up 77 arrests, including his most recent dickish move: Stealing $29.89 worth of Starburst candy from the Addison L station convenience store.

Bowens has more photos online than Grumpy Cat.

We'd like to think that this time he won't be paroled after serving less than half of his sentence. But, this is still Illinois, so we really shouldn't try to think.
