In Chicago, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx continues to let criminals run free rather than prosecuting them. While police officers are risking their lives to clean up the streets and protect our communities, she allows criminals arrested for serious crimes like aggravated battery, homicide, and even sex crimes to walk the streets.
