See this story from Conservative Review: Chicago Hellhole Parole Free Bail Jailbreak Violent Gun Felons
The story is mostly about how felons, even convicted of gun violence, end up back on the streets. Unfortunately, McLean County made the story:
We know crime decreased for decades due to mandatory sentences. That trend is being reversed.
I asked State’s Attorney Don Knapp for a comment. He agreed that prison populations in Illinois are declining. In order to comment further he said he would have to spend more time reading and looking at facts.
