Statement from Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx

June 29, 2020

“I am saddened by the horrific violence and loss of life occurring across the city and county, especially for the children who were senselessly and violently murdered in these past weeks at the hands of those intent on causing harm and disrupting the safety of our communities.

Public safety remains our top priority. We will continue to focus our attention on violent crime, and prosecuting those when an arrest is made by law enforcement. 

It is critical that we continue to work collaboratively with our law enforcement, community, and justice partners at the city and county for a fair and equitable criminal justice system and will continue to do so - as we seek justice for victims and their families while holding the drivers of violence in our communities accountable.”
