States Attorney’s Race

We are receiving a considerable volume of television spots from the candidates for Cook County States Attorney. The job of the States Attorney is to prosecute crimes and secure convictions but you would not know that from the political advertisements. Were you to base your notions of the job solely on the ads, they would convince you that both candidates were running for Cook County Public Defender.

That’s an appointive office and to the best of my knowledge does not report to the States Attorney but to the County Board and President.

    Candidates sailing into public anti law enforcement sentiments?
    As states Attorney I will protect you from the predations of the police.

  • Yep. That’s pretty much it. That and gun control which has nothing whatever to do with the States Attorney’s office.

    It’s too bad, like with New York, stop and frisk was working, (while pissing off Black people), because it made the Black kids leave their guns at home or risk losing them to police. This is damned if you do….
