Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown unloaded earlier this week where he heavily criticized the crooked State Attorney Kim Foxx for failing to make sure that criminals are brought to justice.
Instead, she is letting them go free and in most cases completely dropping the charges.
“Criminals took to the streets with the confidence that there would be no consequences for their actions,” Brown said in his press conference. “Let me say that again: Criminals took to the streets with the confidence that there would be no consequences for their actions.”
“These looters act as if there are no consequences for their behavior. And they base that on what happened previously, that we made a lot of arrests during May and June and not many of those cases were prosecuted to the fullest extent. We have to have consequences for the arrests that Chicago Police officers make, through great threat to their own safety, they’re being shot at to make these arrests. And these looters, these thieves, these criminals are emboldened by no consequences in the criminal system. They get released, many charges get dropped.”
Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office, as The Daily Wire reported Tuesday, has dismissed thousands of felony cases – including sex assault, gun, and even homicide charges – since she took office, tried to defend herself against Brown’s claims by saying many of the looters arrested in May and June have yet to have their day in court.
I'll be honest with you, this reminds me of the book of Judges in the Bible in which we see on multiple occasions the statement that there was no leader in the nation of Israel and everyone just did what was right in their own eyes.
“The people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals. “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 2:11; 21:25).
Each time we see how this turns out to not end well. Instead of submitting to God, the Israelites embraced individual autonomy. Each person became a law unto himself, and widespread evil resulted.
