The Good News And Then The Bad News

First, the good news.  You beat a murder and other charges and you are released from jail.
And the bad news: Someone really wanted you dead and you are shot down within minutes of being released from jail.
From the Chicago Tribune:  A Chicago man accused of murder who beat his case when prosecutors couldn't give him a speedy trial was killed after leaving Cook County Jail on Monday night, according to authorities. 
Kamari Belmont, 23, was being held on separate murder and robbery cases stemming from a single night in 2015 in which he was accused of shooting one man during a robbery who later died and robbing another man a couple of hours later.....
At 5:30 p.m. Monday, a friend of Belmont’s posted $10,000 bond. Belmont was released at 11:12 p.m. 
Someone pulled alongside him in a white SUV on California Avenue a couple of blocks south of Cook County Jail on Monday night before midnight and started shooting. Belmont was shot multiple times. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-murder-defendant-beats-charge-then-killed-20170307-story.html
I don't think too many people are going to lose sleep with this guy's demise.
