A Chicago woman who has been arrested hundreds of times says that after her latest release from jail she is determined to turn her life around.

Fifty-two-year-old Shermain Miles has been arrested 396 times in the past 35 years. Her offenses ranged from disorderly conduct and theft to attacking a City Council member.
 
In June, a judge sentenced her to time served after she agreed to get mental health and substance abuse treatment.
 
She was released Monday from the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln.
 
On her train journey home, Miles said that she's not a bad person but that alcohol had turned her "into a monster."
 
She was headed Monday to a residential home for ex-inmates and says she's permanently given up drugs and alcohol.


Look - I hope she turns her life around. But being arrested nearly 400 times shows total dedication to being an idiot.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

I would have guessed "Florida". Oh, well. Perhaps the 397th time's a charm...
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Parts of Florida are quite lovely. It's Paradise, really. Only with meth labs, pawn shops, and pit bulls.
