Illinois needs a true leader who has a great deal of concern for criminal justice now more than ever. Crime rates are rising in this bad economy yet police and prosecution resources are being slashed as governments deal with shrinking budgets. That means more crime is slipping through the cracks. There’s no one out there to pick up the slack, there is no support service or one-stop shop that says, “we’re smart on crime, and we’re not going to put up with this.” The Illinois attorney general’s office can play more of that role and this fall, I intend to make sure that happens.
