“Offended” judge slaps “Bean” taggers with $10K bail while accused gun offenders go free on their own recognizance

Neither Rey Ortega nor Tino Guzman, both 20, has a criminal record. And Guzman isn’t even charged with painting the sculpture. He’s accused of spray painting a nearby bench.

Gun offenders and even people who allegedly battered cops after the Chicago Pride Parade were given much lower bail amounts by Navarro this week.
