Judge Spit on and Slapped for Smoking

A North Side man allegedly spit on and slapped a Cook County Judge for smoking, including calling her "Rosa Parks".   He is currently being charged with various felonies for a hate crime and aggravated battery.  This behavior is clearly unacceptable, but the interesting question is whether this case being dealt with more aggressively because it involves a Judge?  The law appropriately provides harsher penalties when a crime is committed again certainly classes of people, ie: children, the elderly, police officers,  and elected officials, to name a few.  Will the Cook County states attorney and the media deal with this case more harshly than other similar cases because it was 'one of their own', a Cook County Judge?  At this point, only the allegations stand against this defendant, but time will tell with the resolution as to the fairness of justice in this case.
