A prosecutor who failed to jail the criminals in crime-ridden Chicago is not seeking re-election and thus striking a minor blow to George Soros and his vision of a violent, lawless society.

Kim Foxx, who has served two terms as Cook County state’s attorney, announced Tuesday she will not seek a third term. In her speech, the controversial prosecutor defended her record and bizarrely blamed a spike in violent crime on the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I refute the supposition that where we find ourselves today, with the rise in violent crime that coincides with the once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, is somehow the result of the Cook County State's Attorney's Office," Foxx told reporters.

Chicago's crime rate spiked in 2022, up 44 percent over the previous year. Car theft was up a stunning 102% and general theft increased by half. 

Dr. Ron Martinelli, a forensic criminologist and author, tells AFN the crime rate in Chicago can be traced to “progressive policies” such as the defund-the-police movement, ending cash bail, and ignoring the recidivist patterns of violent felony criminals.

Chicago fits a sad pattern across the country. In major U.S. cities where people are being killed and carjacked, and where those criminals are set free, the prosecutor who is allowing it to happen is most often a Marxist attorney who views the perpetrator as a victim of society. The election of those rogue prosecutors, such as L.A. prosecutor George Gaskin and Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, most often can be traced to a donation by a non-profit group or a political action Ccommittee whose own records show a huge Soros donation.

As for Foxx, The Chicago-Sun Times reported in 2020 Soros had given $2 million to a PAC that was backing the attorney’s bid for re-election.

Asked why Foxx and other prosecutors are soft on the criminals wrecking their cities, Martinelli's answer is a troublesome one: The prosecutor is permitting a street-level revolution against the status quo.  

“The only thing that I can think of,” he says, “is just to turn the criminal justice system upside down and create chaos in the democratic form of government.”
