Soros funded State Attorney Kim Foxx has released 25,000 felony cases in just three short years. If you want to know how to lower crime in Chicago, all you have to do is remove Foxx from office.
Among the crimes she refused to prosecute are murders, people getting shot, attacking police officers and rapists.
Foxx achieved national attention when she dropped all charges against Jussie Smollett. But she is not famous. Infamous is a more apt description of her. Other prosecutors stepped in after the decision to drop the charges. These guys are heroes.
Crime, especially violent crimes are on a big surge in Chicago and putting felons back on the street is a big reason why.
And what do you suppose is going through the minds of these thugs, some of whom possibly murdered someone.
Some of them are considering themselves as invincible. This makes them even more dangerous than they were before.
Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara issued a letter to U.S. Attorney John R. Lausch Jr. Catanzara wants the federal prosecutor to take over cases of people who were involved in the riots across the country.
In his letter to the US attorney, he blames Kim Foxx for the situation and asked him to take over cases involving rioters. There has been no reply yet as of this time. per a local CBS channel:
“Our members were subject to threats both verbally and physically, were battered with all types of bricks and rocks and stood the line to help protect the citizens and their property,” Catanzara wrote. “Our offices did this with the understanding that the looters and criminals would be prosecuted and held to account for their actions. It appears that this is not going to happen.”
Referencing an attached announcement, Catanzara wrote Foxx “very plainly and without explanations has decreed that her office has instituted a ‘presumption of dismissal’ for a host of charges. She makes this proclamation under some arbitrary theory that the offenders were protestors and somehow had the right to commit crimes due the unfortunate death of George Floyd in Minnesota.”
Catanzara said officers did not arrest peaceful protesters, only looters and violent criminals.
