Convicted murderer mistakenly released in Chicago

Source: CNN

A convicted murderer was on the loose Friday morning after he was mistakenly released from custody in Chicago.

Steven Robbins, 44, convicted of a 2002 murder in Indianapolis, was freed Tuesday because of an error by Chicago court and security officials.

Robbins was taken to Illinois on Tuesday for a court hearing on unrelated weapons and drug charges, according to the Indiana Department of Correction.

Both of those charges were dropped and Robbins was supposed to be returned to an Indiana prison to continue serving his 60-year sentence for the murder.

4. I am absolutely baffled by your response.

Were you just looking to write "guns" anywhere you could?

What do we want?! Guns!! When do we want it?! Guns!!
