What Does a Gender Studies Degree From the University of IL Get You? Probation After Being Held At Gunpoint by CCW Holder During Hot Burglary

Meet Tyler Hamlin. He graduated from the University of Illinois (my alma mater) with a Gender Studies degree. Where has that degree taken him? Well, the homeless (first clue) and unemployed (clue #2) Tyler Hamlin, 31, was confronted by a CCW homeowner while burglarizing the guy’s garage in Chicago a while back.

That’s right.  A homeowner with a concealed carry firearm used it to defend himself and his residence from the sticky-fingered University of Illinois gender-studies burglar. Proving once again that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad person with evil (and gender studies) in their heart.

Despite his “on probation” status at the time, Tyler lucked out. He got another soft-on-crime judge who gave him “more” probation after police cuffed him up after a tense standoff in a garage in Chicago.

In a miracle of sorts, Chicago cops were less than a minute away when the 911 call about a homeowner holding a burglary suspect at gunpoint came into dispatch.

Despite unsatisfactorily completing his last probation, Judge Sharon Kanter gave him more probation. Because, you know, probation really works.

CWB Chicago deserves a medal for covering real crime in Chicago.  Here’s the dope:

CHICAGO — Tyler Hamlin was charged with burglary last February after a concealed carry holder interrupted the break-in and held him at gunpoint until Chicago police arrived. This week, a judge sentenced Hamlin to probation.

He was already on probation for a criminal damage by fire case, which started as an aggravated arson charge, when the Wrigleyville gun owner detained him around 8:30 p.m. on February 6, 2023.

The CCL holder had received an alert from his security system that someone was on his front porch in the 3500 block of North Fremont. Prosecutors said he inspected the property and found Hamlin inside his garage. The homeowner warned Hamlin that he had a gun and ordered him to show his hands while his wife called 911.

“[The police] were here in about 45 seconds, and he couldn’t get out of the garage. I was standing in the door,” the homeowner told CBS2 last year.

Hamlin, 31, has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and gender and women’s studies from UIC, according to his defense attorney. Despite those credentials, he was homeless and unemployed at the time of the burglary.

He pleaded guilty to burglary this week in exchange for the sentence from Judge Sharon Kanter. His probation in the criminal damage to fire case was terminated unsatisfactorily, according to court records.

And Chicago wonders why it’s become a cesspool of violence and crime.

It could be worse. Chicago could be California where gun control has effectively disarmed all of the good guys and left the bad guys and gender studies experts to run roughshod on the productive folks in society.
