“On June 19, 2020, Foxx conducted a voice conference with all the investigators of the SAO.

This was a mandatory meeting that included the chief, commanders and all sergeants.”

“During this meeting, Fox encouraged several white investigators to apologize for their white privilege which they did.”

Per a Second City Cop blog post about elected Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, dated Saturday June 27, 2020 and titled, “Cray-Cray Time.”

The SAO is the State’s Attorney’s Office.

One commenter on the blogged claimed that never happened.

“Anonymous said…

I was on this call.

She didn’t ask anyone to apologize.

Her and first assistant Joe Magats spoke about the neck ties on the wall.

He apologized.

Nobody else on the call spoke.”

One could submit a FOIA request for a recording of the call to verify what was said.

“The superintendent labeled unlawful use of a weapon and open-air drug market arrests as the “precursors” to gun violence, but he said there isn’t nearly enough being done to hold those offenders accountable…” “While he called for longer sentences, Brown repeatedly stressed that he isn’t pushing for mass incarceration. Instead he wants the criminal justice system to better address street violence and keep violent offenders in prison longer.” ““It’s a full-court press,” he said. “Our endgame is arrest for the precursors to violence. So every day we’re gonna be clearing corners – every day we’re going to be clearing these… Read more »

We have leadership but progressive ideals fail when met with reality. But it’s more important to maintain the belief that the progressive ideal will solve the problem, when in fact, reality clearly proves they are wrong.

And they just waiver back and forth with endless word salad, while people die.

Leadership is making tough decisions and taking care of people, not treating every mouth opening as a parade of BS.

They claim the police protect each other. So do the Chicago Dems.

Downtown Dallas Brown came to Chicago believing that he would be in charge if the police department. April Fool! The mayor, aldermen, county politicians, state pols, connected (mobbed) up people, mega donors to the Democrats, storefront revruns and assorted other insiders run the show. Brown is figurehead and just pulls the puppet strings when told what to do and say. It’s been that way forever. Brown is so far out of touch with Chicago politics at some point his head will spin off.

The same goes with shoplifting in Cook County. For instance an infamous security camera footage showed four black people walking out of a Marshall’s with armfuls of coats in broad daylight. The police in several Cook County suburbs have been complaining that Kim Foxx does not prosecute shoplifters for some time now. In a shoplifter’s mind, is there a difference between such shoplifting and the looting that took place in the aftermath of the George Floyd death? The shoplifting without consequence was a precursor to the looting. It’s open season in Cook County in the name of Black Lives Matter… Read more »

Like I’ve been trying to say, BLM isn’t about marxism, or social justice, or even defunding the police. It’s about allowing Black people to freely engage in anti-social behavior that other communities would consider criminal. BLM is all about decriminalizing criminal behavior for Black people. Every stated goal – defunding the police, stopping mass incarceration, not charging criminals for petty charges or misdemeanors, and so on, every one of those goals is simply decriminalizing criminal behavior – for Black people. To suggest otherwise ignores all the obvious evidence, even if the goal is not clearly articulated. BLM views the system… Read more »

He’s not calling for mass incarceration, of course he is but he can’t say it because he’s superintendent of Chicago and he knows we need to incarcerate more but that’s not politically correct in Chicago.

He’s not pointing the finger at states attorney Kim Foxx, or he doesn’t want to.

Hmm so would you look at that? An actual policy disagreement where one side can’t scream racism. Let’s see how this plays out

Brown, you’re on the wrong side of history. These gun offenders and drug pushers, they don’t need prison sentences, they need social workers, violence advocates and addiction specialists. It’s not their fault they murder innocent children, the system racism forces them to pull that trigger.
