The Arrest of Robert Crimo III

The suspect in the murder of six people and the wounding of 31 at a parade in Highland Park earlier today has been captured and taken into custody. The grilling of the suspect is taking place at the station.

His father, Bob Crimo, is president at Bob’s Pantry & Deli. He ran for mayor in 2019. He did no fundraising and came away with no expenditures and about 27% of the vote against winner Nancy Rotering.

Crimo III calls himself ‘Awake the Rapper’.

At about 6:30 p.m., a North Chicago police officer spotted 22-year-old Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III at Route 41 and Buckley Road, police said.

There was a brief pursuit, but the vehicle was stopped at Westleigh Road and Route 41 in Lake Forest.

Robert Crimo III obeyed officers’ commands when they caught up with him.

There are a lot of screengrabs and clips of the suspect online although his weird accounts were taken down. In the shots, he is seen at a Trump rally, wearing a Trump flag, a Peppy frog shirt, and at a pro-police rally. Maybe he’s a supporter or maybe he was considering shooting them, who knows.

On the other hand, he is in shots with a Democratic Socialists of America symbol, an Antifa symbol, and numerous ‘likes’ on Biden’s comments. He also identifies in posts as a “liberal”. He said, “I am a liberal.”

Crimo calls himself ‘awake’ and made weird and disturbing rap videos. It looked like he considered shooting up a class in one.

There is one photo that is critical of Israel and he did shoot into a parade in a largely Jewish neighborhood. It could be a hint as to motive or not.

WARNING, DEEPLY DISTURBING

The rapper released a cryptic track called “Are You Awake” on Oct. 15, 2021. The track appears to suggest that Crimo was planning a life-defining moment that “not even he could stop.” The video includes drawings of a man aiming a rifle at another person.

The video also includes an image of a newspaper clipping about Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated President John F. Kennedy, and another image of a victim shot with blood spraying from the body.

“Like a sleepwalker, I am unable to stop and think,” he says in the track. “My actions will be valiant and my thought is unnecessary. I know what I have to do, I know what’s in it, not only for me, but for everyone else.”

“There is no past or future, just the now,” he adds. “It is more abstract than I can ever imagine. I can feel the atmosphere pushing me in. It’s unstoppable, like a wave pulling me under, I can’t breathe without it.”

“I need to leave now, I need to just do it. It is my destiny, everything has led up to this,” Crimo says. “Nothing can stop me, not even myself. Is there such thing as free will, or has this been planned out, like a cosmic recipe?”

“It is what I’ve been waiting for in the back of my head, ready to be awakened, It is what I’ve been sent here to do, like a sleepwalker,” he adds.

He is not unique. People are making this political but he’s all over the place. The man is mentally deranged, just like the others.

Look at the photo. Do you honestly think he’s sane?

Some of the people commenting on Twitter are vile. This one is making it about race. It’s very hateful. Many are comparing it to the criminal who was shot by police 60 times. They don’t even know yet what the full story is but are commenting recklessly anyway.

All the red flags, warnings and more yet the dems along with the corrupt media will probably blame the gun and want to punish law abiding gun owners.

He’s mentally ill and we don’t know who dropped the ball yet, if anyone. He was known to police. https://wgntv.com/news/highland-park-parade-shooting/highland-park-shooting-suspect-was-known-to-law-enforcement/

I call what youtube did dropping the ball, it/he/she had videos glorifying violence on there. Youtube will remove your video if you endorse ivermectin or attack the jab, but not if you portray yourself as a murderer.

I also call what the police did dropping the ball, he shot over 70 times and escaped without being detected.

It wears women’s clothing, and was for the attack.

This is how people who dropped the ball behave. WGN is not going to tell you the truth:
Why Did Local PDs and FBI Suppress Information that July 4th Killer Crimo Was Connected to Antifa, Progressives and the Occult?

What are you talking about here?! He is a product of his household and parents obviously not getting him the help he needs. To put this on teachers is ridiculous.

Yes it all does start at home ,yet who has more hours feeding our children’s minds? Today’s woke schools preach victimhood, hatred of others who think differently and many other destructive anti-family behaviors. . Whatever is fed (recorded) into their minds is usually played back.

Ronnie what you’re saying isn’t true. Right wing media claims that nonsense but the vast majority of public schools, at least where I live, do a solid job of just teaching. No victimhood lectures around here.

Who taught him to be a “women”? Who taught him the exaggerated evils of society?
