1- Always “SEEK JUSTICE”!
2- I will vigorously fight crime in Cook County
3- I will target:
- public corruption, violent felons, illegal gun possession cases, gangs, major drug dealers, and sexual assault/domestic violence cases
4- I will enforce “Zero Tolerance” on
- violent crimes, illegal gun possession cases, and repeat violent offenders
* These cases will be prosecuted aggressively!
5- I will prosecute those cases that deserve to be prosecuted
- & also wisely use “deferred prosecution programs” on qualified non-violent offenders
- to give deserving individuals a “second chance”
- and to lessen the burden & financial drain on our overburdened criminal justice system
6- Rape Kit / DNA Analysis by Police Departments will be documented and supervised closely
- so that swift justice will be sought and secured for rape victims
7- Politics will NEVER influence my decisions
- investigations and prosecutions will no longer be “buried away” just because the offender is the nephew of the Mayor or other prominent official
8- The backlog of cases ends NOW!
- justice must be swift!
- we need to save taxpayer money!
9- The days of “Micro-Management” and “Wasting Taxpayer Money” are OVER!
- courtroom prosecutors will be given the discretion they need to do their jobs
10- I will establish a variety of “Community Outreach” programs* This will include regular meetings with the communities* This will also include various youth “Ambassador” programs and “Intern” programs
- to re-build strong bonds of trust with our communities
- to help keep our youth away from gangs and drugs
- we will finally “LISTEN” to and work with our communities
- and break the “Code of Silence” that exists out on the streets
