Voters ousted the Chicago area's top prosecutor Tuesday, backing Democratic primary challenger Kim Foxx in a campaign dominated by questions about Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez's handling of the shooting death of a black teenager at the hands of a white police officer.

Interesting. Sounds like that prosecutors office needed a shake up.
Yeah, but the one who won is like the prosecutor in Baltimore. Look for Chicago Homicides to go even higher.
Oh...I thought maybe tar, feathers and a rail were involved.
But will this be any improvement? After all it’s Chicago, and the replacement is a “Holder’s Person!”
Chicago is so corrupt, it is hard to know what the election means.
My guess is that it will be much less likely that criminals will be prosectuted; crime will soar, and Chicago will accelerate its downward trend.
“Interesting. Sounds like that prosecutors office needed a shake up.”
It’s Chicago....”Meet the new boss, just the same as the old boss”
They have a secret holding building. That is outrageous.
The city is dirty, and it looks like this needed to happen.
They couldn’t take out Rahm, so this is the best they can get. For now.
Keep feeding a monster till it feeds on you...
We need a tough on crime Republican State’s Attorney.
What we got was a Black woman winning by waving the bloody shirts of dead thugs who were killed by the popo. I would have preferred the incumbent to win, things will get even worse now.
Chicago is going in the same direction as Detroit.
Crook County ...
Many of these murders in big cities are gang members thinning the herd, what police secretly call victimless crimes.
Foxx also favors more gun control.
I need to find a way to move to Texas.
gun control is settled law- SCOTUS says so /semi sarcastic
The Republican candidate is Christopher Pfannkuche
It’s hopeless put we got pick up the lance and tilt at the windmill. Can’t give this witch a pass. The crime in Chicago is out of control and Kim Foxx is a step in the WRONG direction.
Of course the media is acting like Foxx is already the new States Attorney. We don't need no stinkin' election in November, start the coronation now!
Interesting trivia, the last Republican to win countywide in Crook was States Attorney Jack O'Malley in 1992. Tony Pericia (who won the suburbs but lost the city) would have been the second.
Chicago is nearly divided by 1/3 black, 1/3 white and 1/3 hispanic with a small percentage of Asians. 96.8% of homicides are committed by blacks and hispanics, 93.3 rapes are by blacks / Hispanics, 85.2% of robberies by Blacks, 10.8% by Hispanics and 94.5% of aggravated assaults by blacks and Hispanics. In my estimation, Chicago has a race problem.
