Tonight's City of Chicago edition of Public Affairs features Republican Cook County State's Attorney Candidate Judge Patrick O'Brien, taped just prior to the primary election. The show airs throughout the City of Chicago proper at 8:30 pm and midnight on Cable Ch. 21 (CAN TV).
How does Judge Pat O'Brien stack up against State's Attorney Kim Foxx. Is O'Brien more qualified for the job? Does O'Brien have better experience for the job due to his experience as a TRIAL LAWYER both in and out of the State's Attorney office?
What is the Smollett--Kim Fox mess all about? Did Foxx do quite a few things very wrong (unethical or illegal), as many charge, to cause the mess? Is it a FIRING offense? Who will do the FIRING if it is? THE PEOPLE? SPECIAL PROSECUTOR DAN WEBB? BOTH WEBB AND THE PEOPLE?
Who gets the credit for homicides declining in Chicago in last 3 years? THE BLAME FOR THE INCREASE IN HOMICIDES prior to COVID clearing the streets-- until this weekend's return of lethal homicides to the west and south sides of Chicago?
Is the Cook County bail policy a mess? If yes, who to blame? Chief Judge Evans? State's Attorney Foxx, who has ratified Evans' and Preckwinkle's desire to go easy on bail, even for violent offenders-- the revolving door, as Mayor Lightfoot used to put it for dangerous arrestees accused of weapons violations--until Lightfoot did a 180 and endorsed FOXX!
What are the most important qualifications to be Cook County State's Attorney? Does Judge O'Brien have some of them? all of them? Does Foxx have the qualifications? The Right Stuff? O'Brien have the Right Stuff? These and many more questions all answered tonight on Public Affairs
