Robert Crimo Iii, The Suspected Assassin Of The July 4Th Parade, Is Allegedly Responsible For Eight Dead And Dozens More Wounded

The suspected July 4th parade bomber appears to have had a tumultuous upbringing, but it is “extremely difficult to attribute any liability to his parents,” said a legal expert.

Robert Crimo III, 21, allegedly opened fire on a crowd lined along the streets of downtown Highland Park, Illinois, killing eight people and injuring dozens more.

He was arrested and charged with multiple counts of murder – more charges are awaited. He pleaded not guilty, although prosecutors said he confessed.

The mass shooting rocked the affluent Chicago suburb.

The aftermath is still being felt emotionally and physically as several blocks of streets are still cordoned off and believed to be a crime scene, still covered with strollers, lawn chairs and children’s toys.

The guns Crimo III allegedly used were purchased legally, and the suspect had a permit his father – Robert Crimo Jr. – sponsored in December 2019 because his son was under 21.

The allegedly used weapons were bought legally, the police said.

But the father sponsored the permit just three months after the suspect allegedly threatened to “kill everyone in the house” in a domestic incident, according to the police report.

Illinois State Police said last week they were investigating the suspect’s father.

Would claims go to court?

Duncan Levin, a former federal prosecutor and now a highly respected defense attorney, told The Sun he thinks the investigation into the father is “probably just politics”.

The state police could “possibly shift the blame away from themselves since they were the entity that actually did the background check,” Levin said.

The FOID (Firearm Owners Identification) card and the guns were obtained and purchased legally, which Levin said “would be extremely difficult to attribute any liability to the parents.”

The devil is in the details,” Levin said.

“If he has made material misrepresentations, there is a possibility that he could be held liable.

“But if, as he is suggesting, he only consented to a background check, it would be highly unlikely that he would be held liable.”

FINGER POINT

Crimo Jr. sponsored his son’s gun license in December 2019, according to state police.

Three months earlier – in September 2019 – police responded to a domestic riot in which Crimo III allegedly threatened to “kill everyone in the house,” the police report said.

His parents told responding officers that their son was depressed and had a history of using drugs, the report said.

Law enforcement seized several weapons — including a tin lunchbox containing 16 knives, a 12-inch dagger, and a 24-inch samuri sword — but they were immediately returned a day later after Crimo Jr. said they were his, the Illinois State Police said.

No restraining or firearm restraining orders were filed because the family declined to proceed with the complaint, state police said. The matter has been closed.

“Obviously, given his numerous contacts with law enforcement over the years and the associated red flags, it’s worrying that he passed the background check,” Levin said.

So said Steve Greenberg, an attorney representing the parents, in a series of tweets on July 6 in response to the public opinion court pointing the finger at Crimo III’s parents.

“(Illinois State Police) should ask why THEY approved a FOID card and why THEY allow assault weapons for sale?” Greenberg tweeted.

“The ‘system’ tries to do this through parenting,” said Greenberg, whose portrayal of Crimo III’s parents is separate from her son’s portrayal.

“Parents recognize that this is a legitimate concern. It’s important to note, however, that the Illinois State Police renewed his gun license when their son turned 21, well before that, without his father’s involvement.

“By the way, the law does not require a parent to sponsor a child, the law only requires them to consent to their child’s application. It is then up to the ISP to decide if the person is eligible to own a gun.

“And the bigger question that needs to be answered and resolved is why are military-grade assault weapons available to everyone?”

NOT THE FIRST POLICE CRIMO FAMILY RUN-IN

It was reported that after the September 2019 incident, Crimo III had moved out of his parents’ home and was living with his uncle Paul.

More than a decade before last week’s domestic unrest or shooting, Crimo III’s mother Denise Pesina was charged with endangering the life of a child.

She reportedly left Crimo III in a hot car for about 30 minutes in 2002.

During The Sun’s reporting at Highland Park, the outlet asked the suspect’s uncle Paul and a close friend, who wished to remain anonymous for security reasons, about Crimo III’s relationship with his family.

His friend said he didn’t mention his mother, and his uncle said he didn’t think there was a rift between his nephew and his parents.

“I’m shocked. It’s too much to process,” said Paul Crimo from his car. There were no warning signs. Nothing I saw.”

Chicago White Sox make costly mistakes in loss to Kansas City Royals – Reuters Sports News

Chicago White Sox Make Costly Mistakes In Loss To Kansas City Royals - Reuters Sports News

Chicago White Sox starter Johnny Cueto has pitched for winning teams throughout his career, including 2015 World Series champion Kansas City Royals.

After another night of missed chances in an 8-3 loss Wednesday to the Royals at Kauffman Stadium, the Sox had to think about what it would take to show the consistency so many have been waiting for all year.

“I think we need to be more aggressive and show more swagger,” Cueto said through an interpreter. “We have to go out there and play and play hard and show what we can do.

“We have to fight. We have to show the fight, we have to show the fire that we have – if we have it.

The Sox broke through offensively with three runs in the top of the sixth to take a two-point lead. The Royals tied the game in the bottom of the sixth and took the lead in the seventh on MJ Melendez’s solo home run against Jake Diekman. They walked away with four in the eighth.

“I see it as having a two-point lead and that’s part of the game,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Sometimes we had rallies that started with a ball hitting a sack or a blooper. It happened for them.”

The Sox were trailing 1-0 when they charged with one out in the sixth.

Gavin Sheets, who flew to the left in a similar situation in the second, hit a ground second with an exit speed of 106.1 mph. Michael Massey was unable to field the hard hit ball cleanly and two runs were scored on the play, which was originally ruled a hit before it was changed to an error.

The Sox tacked on a third run on a two-out RBI single from Josh Harrison.

The Royals responded with two goals late in the sixth.

Bobby Witt Jr. hit a field single, beating the third pitch after a slight double clutch from Yoán Moncada. Witt scored first on Salvador Perez’s double.

Perez advanced to third on a throwing error from Moncada, who made a good field play on Hunter Dozier’s field but dismissed first baseman José Abreu. Perez scored on a two-out single from Massey.

“I fought,” Cueto said. “Just two balls on the floor that unfortunately Moncada couldn’t finish those games. But I kept fighting. I did what I could.”

Cueto allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits with four strikeouts and one walk in six innings.

“Part of baseball,” La Russa said. “And he almost got away with it. It’s a tough way to get the guys down to the basics. A tough way to give up racing from Johnny’s perspective.

Diekman has been effective since the Sox acquired him in a trade from the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 1, striking out 10 of 12 batters in the face of six strikeouts in his first four outings.

He gave up the home run to Melendez on a 1-2 pitch.

The Royals added the insurance runs in the eighth against Jimmy Lambert, who had allowed no runs in his last 12 outings.

“Diekman made a mistake and (Melendez) knocked him out of the park,” La Russa said. “And then it got away from us in round eight. It wasn’t the way Lambert pitched. He is still very good. As soon as he rests, he’ll be back there.

The Sox haven’t produced anything offensively outside of the sixth. While Royals starter Kris Bubic didn’t factor in the decision, he lowered his career ERA against the Sox to 2.72 in seven outings (six starts) after allowing one earned run on seven hits in 5⅔ sleeves.

“You look at life, this guy was tough on us,” La Russa said. “We had all three, I was proud of that. Even the first time Sheets hit the ball in left field, he couldn’t score. And he touched the ball (in the sixth). (They ) pitched well against us, but we had a chance to win this game just got away from us.

The Sox fell to one game over .500 at 56-55. They are third in American League Central, 2½ games out of first place.

“Not yet,” La Russa said of enduring success, “doesn’t mean you can’t and won’t.”

He thinks that always happens for the Sox.

“Because I know what’s in it,” he says. “If we didn’t have that, we would have been buried long ago. The fact that we are still hanging on and fighting tells you that we can do something good that is consistent.

The Sox trailed 1-0 when they loaded the bases with one out in the sixth.

Gavin Sheets, who flied out to left in a similar situation in the second, smacked a grounder to second with an exit velocity of 106.1 mph. Michael Massey couldn’t cleanly field the hard-hit ball, and two runs scored on the play, which was originally ruled a hit before being changed to an error.

“Not yet,” La Russa said about sustaining success, “doesn’t mean you can’t and won’t.”

He believes it’s still coming for the Sox.

“Because I know what’s in here,” he said. “If we didn’t have that, we would have been buried a long time ago. The fact that we’re still clawing and fighting tells you that we can make something good happen that’s consistent.”

Exchange platform Zerodha’s Kite mobile app was not working on several devices while prices were not updating on many others, users complained on Twitter on Thursday morning.

#zerodhadown trended on Twitter within minutes as users took to the microblogging site to post screenshots of the issues they were facing.

However, Zerodha shared an update on their website at 9:21 a.m. to say that the issue with Kite has been resolved.
“Some of our users may not be able to view live streams on the Kite mobile app. We are reviewing this and will fix it shortly. Please use Kite Web in the meantime. Order placement is not affected “said the brokerage.

While a few Twitter users said that if the Zerodha issue hadn’t happened, they wouldn’t have incurred any losses while others appreciated the platform for resolving the issue within minutes.

However, several users said they turn to other platforms like Angel One or Finvasia to trade.

Also earlier in November 2021, users encountered difficulties in trading due to a technical issue on Zerodha’s trading platform. The brokerage faced anger from customers as they complained about prices and trading freezes on its platform during trading hours.
