Is Kim Foxx really a reformer? What exactly has been groundbreaking about her tenure? I think the consensus for some time now has been to cull the non-violent offender population in county jails.

Democracy + “Diversity” = a racial headcount. This truth is OBVIOUS, but it’s heresy in our Civic Religion to recognize it. Our future is South Africa if we don’t buy a clue.
