Cook County, in Illinois, is home to Chicago. One alderman blasts Foxx, another targets Lightfoot after looters demolish downtown.
If you make something less expensive, you will get more of it, and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has made looting a zero-cost activity. Well, and she has had help from the judges.
“Laws are not a ‘buffet’ for prosecutors to selectively enforce,” Reilly continued. “All too often, we are seeing repeat offenders, violent offenders, gun crime suspects and, now looters, being released on [recognizance bonds] or the totally ineffective ‘electronic monitoring program.’ This is totally unacceptable.”
Reilly pointed to a lengthy Chicago Tribune report about Foxx’s’s polices that coincidentally appeared in this morning’s newspaper.
He highlighted a Trib finding that Foxx “dropped all charges against 29.9% of felony defendants a dramatic increase over her predecessor… For the last three years of Anita Alvarez’s tenure, the rate was 19.4%.”
But Kim Foxx (known to Second City Cop as Crimesha) disagrees. Social Justice is more important than actual Justice. Social Justice is more important than the survival of Chicago’s tax base. And if Chicago ends up with an abandoned downtown, and no money to pay for anything, well, Kim Foxx will know that she did her utmost to let people off the hook for their own actions.
Anyway there is a lot more at the CWB article linked at the top of this post, including some fine words about and by Chicago’s Mayor Groot. Or Lori Lightfoot. Whichever. And I must disagree with the people who think she looks like Beetlejuice.
Oh, and nothing will change in Chicago. Well, things will continue to get worse. Crimesha and the social-justice-warrior judges will continue to turn criminals loose, ignore crimes, and watch while the crime rate climbs. Groot will continue to blast President Trump and everyone outside of Chicago. And when the businesses finally leave, and the people follow it will be because of racism, and not that she didn’t do anything to create an environment where people wanted to stay. In short, it won’t be the fault of any elected official in Chicago, and you are racist for insisting that they actually do the jobs for which they campaigned.
