In Chicago you can be charged with murder..and get re-elected. Go figure.
Robert Battle, a 42 year old Chicagoan, ran unopposed in Tuesday’s election race.
Battle is accused of shooting Reimundo Camarillo Jr. on October 12 in East Chicago, killing him. He also is facing a federal drug charge for being in possession of 73 pounds of marijuana when stopped in Porter County, as well as $100,000 in cash.
The accused’s hearing is set for November 17 and he is currently seeking bail.
That’s just how it’s done in Chicago, folks.
