"I'm Justin Kauffman and this is reset. With Election Day just a week away research checking in with some of the candidates asking for your vote today, we start with the race, for Cook County State's attorney coming up. We'll hear from Pat O'Brien the Republican but first we welcomed the incumbent Democrat Kim Fox Fox was swept into office four years ago largely because of her pledge to reform the criminal justice system here in Cook County State's attorney welcome back to reset. Thank you for having me, Justin. So let's get right into it. Why why do? You deserve another term as the Cook County State's attorney because we've made a lot of inroads in the last four years to keep our community safe and reform what has been a historically broken justice system here Cook County and those inroads have been related to establish of our gun crime strategies, unit address, violent crime, some of our most devastated neighborhoods to vacating wrongful convictions of those who wrongfully convicted at the hands of corrupt law enforcement, as well as addressing issues related to mental health and substance. Abuse, disorders. Champion when you came in for years ago, it was all a reform agenda. A lot of things are talking about how do you feel your record stacks up with the promises you made on the on the campaign trail back in two thousand sixteen. First of all, we knew that we had a long road ahead of us because the reform agenda was to take on a system that had been fundamentally broken for years but I think we've made great headway. Came into office we were known as a false confession capital of the United States and in just four years, we've vacated more wrongful convictions here in county than any state in the union, we were able to work on marijuana legalization in the vacating of convictions that for amounts that are now legal, but we've been able to address issues like they over form, and so while we have made headway certainly, there's much more to do but I think my record stacks up to the agenda that we laid out in two thousand sixteen. States Fox. Your opponent was on w. w last night and said the murder rate in Chicago the high murder rate it's on you. How do you respond to that? First of all I think people in Cook County are smarter than my opponent wants to give them credit for and fearmongering, and basically blaming not what people here expect from people who want to lead them. The reality is when I came in the office twenty sixteen, we had a horrible year violence much like what we're seeing now in year over year for three years violent crime homicides went down and this year has been an incredibly difficult. Year here in Chicago much like places all across the country from New, York City to Albuquerque New Mexico. And we know that this year between the pandemic, the civil unrest economic loss has been devastating to communities and so for. Miss. O'Brien to be overly simplistic about what's happening in our country. Tell us what is leadership will look like and I actually notice leadership looks like from his history and the office, but really he underestimates the integrity and. Intelligence of the voter when he makes overly simplistic statement, you know there's this idea of really kind of stems around prosecutions in who's being prosecuted for what crimes that's been a big part of your reform agenda two to limit or to to decline the the amount of prosecutions because it felt like at one point in Chicago County, we were prosecuting everybody but that falls into the narrative that is for your opponent and others that you're not. Putting prosecutions at the top criminals are getting out and they're they're doing other crimes they're continuing crimes, and that's why we're seeing an uptick in a surge when it comes to murders.

We had the challenger to Kim Foxx Judge O'Brien on the programme last week, and she has dropped out of all the debates because she feels this is Kim Foxx, the current state's attorney for Cook County that she was mistreated by Pat O'Brien. In a couple of different forms. Her three years of failed policies are driving violent crime. And she said his answers were essentially right out of the Trump playbook, and she wants no more of any debates with Pat O'Brien. She has been a cheerleader for criminals. She has an effect on a champion for defendants. We need a prosecutor who speaks for the community safety. And speaks for that's that's paddle Brian from the Daily Herald form, which I believe was the last one they participated in, However, they did participate at the Chicago Tribune and Eric Zorn.

"Well, Kim raining. Patrick O'Brien's here. He's your Republican candidate for Coke County State's attorney pad. Welcome back. Well, thank you and thank you for having me and I appreciate the opportunity to speak to your listeners is covert 19 leaving you and your family alone. You know, it has s O. I'm knocking on wood. I could find a piece now. Lots of people don't know that named Pat O'Brien. So first of all, tell folks who is Patrick O'Brien. Well, I've been elation attorney in Illinois for about 45 years. I've been a prosecutor in the state's attorney's office and for for those years I was head of all the criminal prosecutors in the county about 758 100 attorneys have been in the Illinois Attorney general's office is an assistant for five years and, uh, practiced helping other states attorney's down state where they didn't see much crime. I've been in private practice for 16 years or more doing criminal defense. And for eight years I was I was had been elected judge and I was on the bench and said involved criminal and civil courtrooms, and I'm back in private practice at this moment, and, of course, running for office is for state's attorney Now what do you want to be a state's attorney? Well, I basically grew up in the office of the people that helped me giving me their experience and advice and the friends that I've made along the way. It's on opposite. I loved at the time when I was in it, and I still love it that I'm outside of it tonight. Having looked at what's happened in this last year and a half years felt that, uh I might be able to to change its direction, which appears to be very much in a downward trajectory. Yeah. Why would you be better than Kim Foxx? The incumbent? Well, to me, being the state's attorney has a number of kind of qualities are kinds of things that you have to have. Experience is one and I got much more experience and she does trying cases judgment. I've had judgment were in each of the three seats in the courtroom. That matter. A CZ defense attorney is prosecutor in his judge. I've said in each of those, so I've got a much more rounded kind of experience, and I understand that the state's attorney Is the chief prosecuting law enforcement officer in accounting and has a responsibility to make community safer and to do that by being the voice for victims. And for victims that are victims of homicide. It's their only voice. I don't think Kim flocks as any appreciation for what the job entails. And I certainly don't think that she is doing a good job. And how do you think she's handled the looters in the recent rioting? Well, I think badly it be my one word answer, And it's this Initially you've got to tell people that you're going to enforce the law. You're going to protect people who are exercising their first Amendment right to protest. But anybody who loots Riots burns down a building in cars, you know, gets in fights with the police and injures them. Those people are going to suffer consequences. And Kim Foxx is not made that clear. She has been a voice for the people. That riot she seems to believe that if you're disadvantaged somehow that gives you The right to break into another person's building and steal all the good that you can get your hands on. Now that isn't fair to the people on those those particular buildings. It isn't fair to the city, and it's a atmosphere of looting. And lawlessness. That certainly doesn't make any of us feel safer. Does. She disagrees with that? She says she wants to give Nonviolence suspects break but nobody doing violence and that the figures bear this out. Do you disagree with that? I disagree with it. Absolutely a state's attorney is required to prosecute all violations of law. Now that doesn't mean you put everybody in jail where you've got a person who has a little or no criminal background and where the offence of their charged with it. Offensive, maybe a property offence. There's a way to deter that person give them a consequence, which may require them. Maybe a complete school get a job to get counseling. If it's a drug problem to get drug treatment, so there's a way to deal with people who, in fact should be directed out of the system. But on violent crime, I think you have to Understand that you have a responsibility to everybody who obeys the law to make sure that the people that vial only disrupt, you know the social fabric that they suffer the kind of consequences Which make people safer, and that may mean putting them in prison. And I don't think she does, either. Right now. She's lost, Um More cases by dismissal or trial than any of her predecessors. She doesn't concentrate on vinyl crime. She just says she will and their examples that are Frankly, pretty frightening. You know that we're aware of Can you give me an example? Sure. Uh, the three officers that were shot in the 25th district Nuggets. It's about three weeks or a month ago, they were shot by somebody that was had been stopped for Carjacking. They put him in it squad. Because of where he had hidden a weapon. It wasn't found. So he comes out when he's taken out of the squad and shoots the three police officers Now that person In 2017 have been facing a charge of armed, habitual criminal because he had three convictions for Drugs. He had a conviction for violence, but he had gained tattoos on his face. But instead of holding out and saying you, this person pleads to being an armed, habitual criminal or we go to trial, and we see if the jury or judge finds him guilty of that they dismiss that charge. I gave him a lesser charge, which effectively put him out on the streets so we could car Jack in a basin and shoot three other officers had he been prosecuted on the On the charge, the highest charge was charged with he would not have been on the street for a minimum of at least another two years. So I think that Kim Foxx is in a position where she has to defend herself. From essentially looking at violent criminals and not understanding that they're violent and not giving them a kind of sentence that they should get. She also doesn't go after shoplifters who are grab $1000 or less of retail merchandise. What do you think of that? Aziz. I said there is there is no nothing in the state's attorney's office that says you have the right to wholesale cut out. Certain crimes from being prosecuted. It creates the wrong atmosphere basically set up a situation where if someone is stealing and, uh, store Management tried to stop them. They could be heard that there's a shop who tries interfere. He or she could be hurt. The police come in and try to arrest somebody. They could be hurt. So this is a situation where You can't pick and shoes, whole areas of crime. You can still prosecute and give appropriate kinds of consequences to shoplifters without essentially giving them a free pass because Doesn't that make the person whose law abiding have to bear the weight of somebody who breaks the law, and that doesn't make sense at all. And what's he do for the magnificent mile and this is going on and the the economy of the magnificent Mile will Longer range. Uh, thing that has to be looked at The city of Chicago is economic engine for the county and parts of the state and probably for the Midwest. Now, if you essentially make The shopping areas which draw not only people to shop with people and from conventions and people will visit if you make it unsafe for them to come down and spend time here and spend their money too..

Importantly, I don't know if you saw this earlier today, But in Portland, they just announced that they will not be pressing charges against hundreds of rioters in Chicago, I showed told this to you last night. In Chicago Cook County Prosecutor Kim Foxx allowed tens of thousands of felonies to skate by wouldn't be bringing charges against those folks. A bunch of criminals.

Maura unrest last night in Chicago protesters rallying outside a police precinct holding up a sign reading our futures have been looted, Loot back, Police Superintendent David Brown says the looters simply have no fear These looters active if there are no consequences of your behavior. And they based it on what happened previously that we made a lot of arrest due in May in June, and not many of those cases were prosecuted to the fullest extent plain. Brown says. The blame falls on Cook County State's attorney Kim Foxx, who dismissed over 25,000 felony cases, including murder, shootings and sexual assaults. Marianne Rafferty,

"Been mesmerized by it all day long. Then we have the storm come through. I'm sitting here in the dark, but we've cobbled together at least some system that we can communicate with you For a while. This afternoon, I watched the mayor, I saw our superintendent. I also watched Kim Foxx and I'm thoroughly disgusted. By the way, says John mentioned and played that Clip from Judge Pat O'Brien. He's the Republican challenger for state's attorney this November. And, Yeah, I would say his odds are getting better and better. As well. You see more and more of Kim Foxx. I reached out to her to see if she wanted to come on the program to kind of offer us some clarification to her news conference day. They did not respond in time for today's show, but we'll keep trying. Because my policy is that if we're gonna have judge panel Brian on the challenger, certainly the state's attorney can come on and defended her policies. It was it was gonna be a big day for Kim Foxx talk here. Anyway, because the Tribune expose John Dempsey. Can you hear me? Yes, I can hear you. Can you hear me? Yes, sir. I do it. So it's all working. So far, so good, Amazing technology, really? But did you read the Tribune Expose? And Kim Foxx and the amount of dismissals felony dismissals that her office has accomplished as opposed to any day. Alvarez? Yes, yes, it says that she has drawn is dropping felony cases involving charges of murder. And other serious offenses at a ah higher rate than Anita Alvarez. Her office dropped all charges against 30% off felony defendants. According to this Tribune investigation and Alvarez is drop. The rate of herder dropping cases was 19.4%. A lot of us have already been complaining about that new policy change. When Kim Foxx came in from my perspective as a retailer, she no longer will prosecute even high dollar shoplifters. They wait and wait and wait on that, they say, because they're overwhelmed. She tried to explain herself today and I wasn't buying.

"The mayor and superintendent You heard them earlier today point and not so disguised finger in the direction of Kim Foxx in the county courts, right? Saw that You saw responses from Fox and you heard that you did. You did hear that, too. You know, they're saying that they're not holding people accountable for Ah, violent crime and particularly with looting, and I don't know if you're satisfied with everything, Kim Foxx said. There it seemed like Talked about 2016 and she put out a lot of numbers there as well. Well, which she seemed to be saying was, it wasn't as bad as it was then. Right, which isn't quite what wasn't as bad as it was, She said. This 2016 was worse than this year was, and I took the office at the end of 2016 in otherwords. Things have been getting better under me. Don't play me was worse before. All right, she said that OK, OK. She's saying that we need to have an honest conversation. Not a blame game. Okay? She's probably right about that. Honest conversations also involved answers on the day that the Tribune investigation Drops that says that her office showed. What is it? Here I have. They dropped all charges against 30% of felony defendants far more than her predecessor. It starts to it starts to add up that maybe she's not holding violent. Criminals accountable, Write well, and you know, but she remembers she. She campaigned on the fact that she was that people were overcharged or over imprisoned. And, you know, talked about bail reform. And all of that, so This may well be a result of that reform and bomb reform that was spoken and I was on board with so much of this when she talked about it on the campaign trail. It is people who are too poor to be able to bond out for low level crimes and misdemeanors. It wasn't the person who's been in and out shooting a gun with a violent offender. Who has committed even murder in some cases who gets out on bond. Now. Her defense today was that most of these cases were drug cases and not violent

George Floyd's murder is I called it by stealing Gucci bags because there's nothing like stealing like a truckload of Gucci bag. Or whatever those things that I never thought that I just wanted to be a real quick if you don't mind, John, you know, Okay, Mr Sensitivity, Right? I know. I know you. You make no bones about it. We all live here in Madagascar. Stan, as you like to say, and you're a proud member agree community. Some Italian associations have come out saying that they feel a bit betrayed by this move for Mayor Lightfoot. I mean, just when you're part of that ethnic community in those neighborhoods, do you Can you empathize with their anxiety I lived with, um this's rights. No, I understand that lives with me. Well, I see that the that the the left has basically transformed. Columbus, the Great Explorer into a symbol of white European oppression. This is all about the changing of history and again. A Zai right in Sunday's column. People don't know that The reason why we have Christopher Columbus Day and the reason why people put statues up was that Italian Americans, Italian immigrants were treated by guards in this country. For years, and they weren't treated as Americans, including my father in law. Received a Bronze star and a Purple Heart from Normandy in World War two. He was an American enough, I guess to get a job. And there were 11. 11 Italians lynched in the war leans in 18 91 I believe, and so in 18 92 President Benjamin Harrison, uh Proclaimed one day one time National Columbus Day to make telling Americans feel as if they were part of this country. So you get, uh, politics on all sides really loud. It's all about November, and it's about canceling people, and it's about shaming people and shut people up except for wools. And the tribute, I think, and so, um What? What happens is that you know, people get really upset and at the same time there are really needs out there in the city of Chicago. Important needs like you're not enough cops there more than 100,000 Street gang members there 12,000 cops if that, but it's really a mess. I don't think that many And, uh, they're over loans.

"Open at seven seven. Three six seven four seventy two hundred to be able to take those calls in refer a to resources we also are working with the advocacy community to make sure that people are aware of what resources are available The sad reality is as we know that there are likely more incidents of domestic violence happening but the calls aren't reflective of that because of the power and control that is being exercised in the home that would even allow for survivors to call. So we're being mindful of that and reminding people that our doors are open to survivors. Well I want to switch tax a little bit and talk about an incident that occurred this weekend a Northberg. Based Hill redevelopment partners demolished denote smokestack. They sent an enormous dust. Clouds your the little village neighborhood on. Chicago's southwest side and as you know illnesses like asthma and other respiratory distress can exponentially multiply the fatalities from covert nineteen. What was your reaction to what happened this weekend. And is your office taking a look at it? I think I was like most others and was horrified at the timing of this and I know that there will be conversations about the fact that this was already preauthorized but we already know about the politics of racial environmentalism. The fact that these types of actions particularly in communities of color have left Those communities vulnerable in right now in the midst of a respiratory virus that is attacking those with underlying conditions like asthma particularly communities of color. This was what I found to be at a minimum appallingly Tone death but more than that particularly dangerous for people in those communities and so it is an evolving issue. It is just happened over the course of the last couple of days and I know that our office and others are looking into it because they can't socially distance like the rest of us first responders like fire and police are on the front lines of this crisis as a result. Dozens have fallen ill. How are you collaborating with? Cpi In this moment first and foremost that it is important to remind people that even as we talk about the conditions at the jail that they're the conditions on the front lines are are also hazardous. We've lost to veteran police officers to cove it in the last several weeks. Their work approaching people in certain circumstances. Put THEM AT RISK. Also why we are looking at the way that we are. Prosecuting cases and cases needs to come forward so that we can keep our law enforcement officers healthy and safe as well and so we've been talking over the course of the last several weeks again about practices Related to what cases. Can we shoot? We be pursuing at this time. What are the efforts that we can take a to make sure that our frontline law enforcement partners are not putting themselves unnecessarily in harm's way to continue to do the things that we had done them pre cova and so as with those who have lost their lives at the detention center? We also Honor the lives with those who are lost in the line of duty Having to do this work in this current environment and as you know we have been likely new incoming CD superintendent. David Brown City Council is set to vote on his appointment on Wednesday. Have you had a chance to speak with him and understand his values when it comes to law enforcement? I did speak with him briefly before he was formally announced by the city and I'd had an opportunity to look at his career over the past couple of years because of his work in Dallas County. I think what is really encouraging in? Wbz has reported about. This is his knowledge and understanding about mental health that we have a significant mental health issue in our criminal justice system. And I think our approaches need to catch up with the times and his experience with that both personal and at the Dallas Police Department give me strong encouragement that he is the man for the Times here in Chicago. Well down the line when we're on the other side of this pandemic and Cook County gets back to whatever the new normal is. You'll obviously face a backlog of cases will you need additional resources to get caught up and if so where we get the funds for that you know what we're going to take a day by day. I the fact of the matter is we have the largest unified court system in the world and we have not had to address anything like this in our history. You know a snow day here or there a has a strong ripple effect the fact that the courts will have been down for two months. will present quite a challenge. We want to make sure that we're protecting the constitutional rights of the accused. Those who have been awaiting trial over this time the rights of victims to be able to seek justice for their cases that they have pending and to be able to do this work Efficiently in thoroughly and so we are constantly working and talking as an office about how we will roll back into this process but recognizing that all of that hinges upon Circumstances outside of our control. So we'll take it day by day and hopefully get the resources that we need to be able to do it. Well as we wrap up when a SHEERA question we've put listeners in recent days you know. This pandemic is tough. It's killing people. It's disrupting how we live. It's really highlighting some of the inequities that exist in Chicago and beyond in this environment. What gives you hope. I am quarantined with four teenage girls head. Yes that is. That's a lot and it is sometimes frustrating but also what gives me the most hope I think the conversations that we've had with them about the disparities in who is living in. Who is dying from this disease about the privilege of being able to shelter in place in have enough space in food in resources in the realization that there are others who are suffering at disproportionate rates. And that's sheltering in place is not an option for them has allowed for me to see this younger generation. Really be attuned to social justice issues in a way. That is real. It's not in a book. It's not something that they're just seen social media they are living it and so I'm hopeful that once we are able to emerge from this that there are new generations of folks who will take up these issues like paid sick leave like a minimum wage that is affordable for people who are out on the frontlines. My girls are talking about that in a way that I had been trying to talk to them for months about That they are bringing to me. It's not fair that the people at Jewel don't get paid what they need to be. Paid my youngest to me and that is what heartens me in. This is that after we emerged from. This is GONNA be a new generation of fighters adding to the fight for social justice..

"Have contracted covert nineteen from inmates to correctional officers and medical staff. Cook County. State's attorney Kim Fox has said she's deeply concerned about this growing problem. A March twentieth. She halted prosecution of narcotics and cannabis cases. She's working with the sheriff and the public defender to keep people who are not an immediate threat to public safety out of jail and she joins us now. State's Attorney Fox. Welcome back to reset. Thank you for having me John. Good morning so before. We addressed the steps. Your Office is taking to fight cove at Nineteen I. I'd like your reaction to the sheer number of cases. We're seeing the county jail sheriff. Tom Dart Office reports nearly five hundred people. There have contracted the virus. It's a stunning number. It is stunning and it is quite awful for the detainees. The families The people who work there and their families. I it is as you describe a place. Where social distancing is almost impossible and so for the people who worked there and are required to stay there? It is horrifying every day that we see these numbers talk about the stepper taking to reduce the jail population. What role do you play? You know at the very beginning. Even before the cut court short down The public defender and I got together and say are there people that we can absolutely agree. I should not be there. The offenses on which they are charge would not warrant them to be there. Absent a barn and so we began working in earnest starting on March Twelfth. Looking and reviewing folks who should come before the courts The public defender filed a motion in which Jevons ruled that they could Do Mass reviews of detainees and we've been participating in that so for the last almost four weeks. Our attorneys have been working around the clock review in bonds of those who have been at the jail a green in cases where we believe people should be released And in those cases where we I disagree having those cases her before a judge so in even doing another review after initial reviews were done it for people who continue to remain there and so we remain committed to making sure that we're balancing public health and public safety and trying to car serrate To the degree that the conditions there can improve well the Cook County jail. Population has decreased significantly in recent weeks. It's down to just over. Forty four hundred detainees about eleven hundred less than a month ago. Do you feel like that's enough. At this point. You know I think what you said earlier. Prisons and jails are not designed to accommodate people during a pandemic and so the concern is. Will it ever be enough in? What we're trying to do is do as much as we can. Given the circumstances that we have to make condition safe for everyone who is residing there and who works there The numbers. I just got Just as we were speaking from today's count were about a forty three hundred and sixty seven. Which is a twenty two percent decrease in in a month Which I think is is a vast improvement but again these are conditions where inasmuch as you try to do. Social distant saying there will always be a public health concern so for those remaining detainees and staff who are working at the jail. What can your office do from here on out to try to build and better protections? The maintenance of jail certainly falls under the purview of the sheriff and there have been requirements that have been set forth by the Federal Court just last week around sanitation in health and safety concerns for the people who live there. I think one of the things that we can continue to do from the state's attorney side is make sure that we are not adding to a population on that is already reeling By sending people to the Cook County jail for things that could be dealt with outside of the jail. I think some of the innovations that we've seen Working with local law enforcement are for example. Citations are misdemeanor cases. Where historically those people will come for a bond hearing. They're now giving a ticket in time to come back using our resources to make sure that only those who are threat to public safety are referred to that jail. Our goal is to make sure that we continue to decrease that population to keep everyone. There says we are off. His last month said it would quit prosecuting low level drug offenses during the Kobe. Nineteen outbreak press release said. The reasons included public health and a reduction in narcotics evidence testing Illinois. State police lapse. What would need to happen for you to resume those low level prosecutions? You know we are looking at all of the things on the table with low level drug prosecutions what we find most of the people that we were prosecuting. Where people with addiction issues? We were talking about people who were possessive. Not People who were kingpins if you will and those people we believe from the very beginning even before this crisis where people who needed treatment and not jail and so I think the lessons that we will learn from this as we look at a post covert world are. Are there things that we can do for this population that include treatment and not incarceration but to be clear there are some cases that we will continue to look at an ask? The State Police To test if we're talking about significant volumes of narcotics And and the state police agreed to do that but what we have seen the overwhelming majority of cases that have come before the state's attorney's office have been low level nonviolent drug offenses with people who are dealing with addiction issues. That should not be criminalized. In what is the threshold fair? What triggers More scrutiny of a case how? How much product is someone have? It's a subjective standard. If you will for example there is a case where someone had fifty pounds of marijuana outside of trump tower a couple of weeks ago fifty pound suggest to me that you are not someone who has an addiction issue but perhaps enterprised at your furthering And so that that becomes clearer but it really is looking to see if someone who is a driver of violence is this. Is this amount. Something they won't cause harm or invite Gun activities as it related to that But again when we look at our data even before the Kobe. Nineteen Crisis. Hit what we were seeing. Were a significant amount of people coming into the justice system for drug charges because of possession or small amount of sales people who that was their of who could be dealt with outside of the justice system rather than inside at the same time if the lack of prosecution on these crimes goes on for several more months. Do you see any increased risk to the public. We want to continue to monitor it. I think that there have been concerns that have been raised for example On the west side where there are people were concerned about air. Drug markets and. We WanNa make sure that that is not also happening but I think this gives us a real opportunity to be able to look at alternatives to be able to say you know. What can we be doing instead of? Why wait until Kobe is over to now say? Let's go back to what we were doing before I think this has exposed whether it's the disparities and in the deaths in black communities versus others The need for additional resources and support around healthcare around economics in the neighborhoods that are largely impacted by drug sales. Until my hope is is not that? We're waiting to this to be over to go back to the days of old but using this as an opportunity to provide the proper support for communities that have been hit by covert and By a war on drugs while earlier this month civil rights groups petitioned a federal judge to mandate immediate mass release of inmates to protect the lives and slow the spread of covert nineteen on Thursday. That request was denied. How feasible is a quote unquote mass? Release you know. We have to in all of this. Make sure that we're maintaining the balance between public health and public safety. We believe it's important to review these cases individually. There are people who are there accused of crimes of violence. You know there are victims and survivors who are impacted by these decisions. There are some people who are charged with offenses where we believe that they are in fact a danger to the public that being said just because they are charged with those offenses they are presumed innocent until found guilty and are forwarded a right to be in conditions that are safe and healthy and so that's the balance that even if someone has to be there because they are a threat to public safety we absolutely must also make sure that their health is maintained. Say's Attorney Fox is part of our coverage the consequences of Kobe. Nineteen reset is checked in with advocates for survivors of domestic violence. And here's what one said about this moment. Let's listen because of social distancing and because people are being told to really isolate in their homes as much as possible we're seeing that abusers are preventing their pirate areas friends seeking medical attention potentially prohibiting them from leaving home and going to work and so it's really those threats of continued power and control over their partner. that are really being intensified. At this time I mean. Many victims of domestic violence have to very carefully methodically planned on when they are going to reach out for help and with the perpetrators being on site of the time that increases the power in control. And so this. Probably even more monitoring over their use of their cell phone and more monitoring over the use of their computers. So it's really difficult. That was Carol Gaul Executive Director of Sarah's in and Stephanie Love Patterson Executive Director of connections for abused women and their children and about one in four women experience domestic violence at some point in their lives. Your office helps people experiencing domestic violence. Walk through the steps. You're you're taking to halt this problem. They've articulated very well. We have a situation right now. Where domestic violence survivors are locked in place with their abusers and what we know about domestic violence circumstances in which you know there's a high stress level so now we know a lot of people have lost their jobs. We also know that mental health issues become particularly acute if people are drinking their likely drinking more now after using drugs or abusing drugs more now and you just have an environment whereby people are trapped in and find it difficult to escape So there's some of the things that we are doing. Wine are reminding people that though most of the criminal court activities have closed.

What is childcare playing? I didn't think about the things in my daily life. Where every dollar is accounted for Because people are counting on me and women bring that perspective of more holistic approach of where things in the puzzle whereas opposed to have seen menu. Just I just want to focus on P and nine think more broad not take more realistically. I News. Inner ear nose and air. She'd been a mentor to me When I first came into this office and she took a different approach the prosecution eight and she's getting you know about being a prosecutor in the presidential which was also fascinating to me because years ago when men were prosecutors and ran for higher office would ask them how I was a prosecutor and people look at you. We're talk newer and keep our community state. A woman run for prosecutor at. She's a cop we'd have read she somehow something suspicious about the act. These women were prosecuted. Where Gen two years ago man or even a man with a prosecutor there wouldn't be viewed the name but I I think women doing those role that are largely dominated by men. I mean I kind of elected prosecutors in this country and let them percents women of color to be able to do the work And recognized all of the disparities for the racial gender. And then do something about. It will draw but we won't be able to do the innovative things that we've been able to do. We don't I you're talking about these attacks the face an IT's true you know I. I'm sure you're aware that on some of the bus stops around the city. There are signs plastered up about you and you know you face all of this on a daily basis you face all of these challenges. How how do you keep going? What what do you do to keep yourself grounded? Keep yourself in the work and keep going I. You a relay race. There were there. Were women before me who has started this race long for it with my car and a half. My handout and difficult at times are for me. I can't imagine what it was like a hundred years ago or one hundred fifty years ago the fact that I'm positioned to be a lawyer to run for office is because there were women who face daunting circumstances before me who kept going and when you put your hand out to take the Baton Jacob with the knowledge that you have to keep running to get it to the person behind you that it is not enough to do this hard I guess we're never going to get there because we have made. We absolutely have made progress. It is not as swift as I think we wanted to be. But we're far better than where we were. I have four teenage girls at home. Who are watching me. Go through and say to me all the time why you do. Why do do it and I used to be reluctant to own what this experience is like as a woman in the color and. I didn't want to give that to them.

You're competent people are not going to like the things that you do but it won't be about the decision it'll be about the decision maker because I don't WanNa cry that days like today or the things that I've been going through recently that I feel brutal honesty with this generation of girl who are very much like how how dare they. There's a growing with each generation growing confidence with each generation. We are getting faster and stronger in that really that it does no service to pretend like things that are happening to me are not because of massage any racism when that happened to Barnes and Amy Cobra.

"Is Kelly and you're listening to the vote. Her in podcast. That is a collaboration between two broads. Talking politics and author Rebecca Saive. We started about a year ago to look at the movement to elect our first woman president. Unfortunately this is the first episode. Since we've known that. Barring unforeseen things happening we are unlikely to be electing a woman president in twenty twenty but there is still of course the hope for a woman vice president lots of governors and the work continues So I'm going to turn this over to Rebecca who will introduce our guest. Rebecca I Kelly and hi to everyone out there. I'm sitting here with Kim Box. And in a minute I'm GonNa tell you a little bit more but O. L. E. With the thing. I wanted to go to complex. You were actually on the day When Senator Warren withdrew from running for president and reflecting on it between my ears I have to say. Read a lot of these amazing women. I was remembering that you know when I sat down to write the book which is about Electing Women President Two things one is. The book was all about some sort of underlying hunted getting more women into executable and we had confessed their that women and let's say physicians were moving incrementally and along that path but this has been much harder as we all know and they're very few stages range around the country where women much African American women and So here we are and we're still in this bowl. Her in together all hands across America on voting every woman and then we can and I think working particularly hard to elect women to Executive Office which brings Newark yesterday compile dear friend Wonderful Person. Brilliant woman and I never heard of the book actually and we talked about this idea of of the woman running for President and the view that woman executive can have things she can do in addition like one of us so we are GonNa talk today about her. We're and her look ahead. She's in a campaign right now. Reelection as the state's attorney Cook County which may not know Chicago largest city in the country. But we thought that we would start out by asking a Kim to share with us. Some of her thoughts about this campaign woman president and how we should look ahead so welcome. Thank you for having me. I'm devastated if I'm being honest. I think it's a day just feel almost like a reminder of where we stand right I think for all the confidence that we have about our ability and what we can accomplish and all of the work that we have done over the years we celebrate. You know separate and look how far com- e- was like a door hitting me in the face of no not as far. You're only get you only get As far as we let you and should see so many talented thoughtful really when Who were more than capable of becoming Our president just summarily dismissed in in in not even dramatic fashion. It's almost like the so picking off of you're not electable. We're going to find every reason to say we don't like it can't articulate line just our our choice To take every opportunity away to have a path and into I think in political terms where you say that are passed narrowed. It was more. I don't know it just it fell Har- like all of our pets. Just continue to narrow. That's yeah yeah and actually look ahead and on the one and I had said earlier that we wanted to really focus on what it is that women in Executive Office can do for Union. Primary Focus has been on. Mogo since obviously attorneys. And I know that Kelly is going to ask you more bathurst but if you could just begin with Sharing with us in our listeners be approaches taken one he gets one lying navy affable to other parts of the country where other women running for taking on policy. He's been very much rooted in my experiences growing up in the city. You know I grew up in Mosul. Tories out in half life is raised bike to win. And My mother and my grandmother and I've had an opportunity survivor of sexual assault to someone who I must be a victim of domestic violence and to be kind of our criminal justice system and wanting to have this job to bring that perspective to bear. Not just as a woman is on them but as one who is more likely to end up in our criminal justice system than to lead and to have an agenda. That saw that people use our justices Not and good guys back but really as a summation of a lot of failed policies. Where they were you know emblematic of that. So I've Kinda take an approach of what keeps communities face because at the end of the day that's my number one priority. I remember thinking shelter in back of Not being able to go out and play because God violent. That's what I wanted my kids to play when our elders regarding I want communities to be healthy safe driving and in that Which should we not be doing that in furtherance of that? How are we criminalising poverty? How are we using the immense power of the prosecutors on to not do good But rather to to cause her. I don't want to cause harm right. Yeah and I think that's an especially important message right now for people to think about their offices every focused on the presidency but there are offices besides the presidency that can have such dramatic effect on communities and making progressive change. And you've been able to do some really things in your tenure so far. What what are some of your goals moving forward in your next term? The you would like to accomplish. I want to continue with the theme of using our justices to promote safety and not use it as a catch all for fails policies so one of the things that we are reckoning with is we have -nificant number of cases to come off it's related to drugs and mental health and there is a universal acceptance that the criminal justice should not be. A mental health provider should not be up to Disorder provider and yet forty percent of the cases to my office or drug in that forty percent. Sixty percent of them are possession. We have a real public health crisis around substance use disorder Illuminated even more so in the last couple of years related to opioid use. An addiction and yet our respond has been punitive and yet we the rhetoric of public health but US criminal justice as a as a response. And so for me. The next turn is about. How do we appropriately? Use the weight of the system. How do I in my position as an executive be convener for those outside of the justice system to step up and lead in areas around mental health and substance use disorder to get the state's attorney's office out of the business of dealing with the issue in the Justice System? And deal with them and community where they belong there other issues. I know there's been a lot on your over the last several years and you have a bit about the work done on women who are in the women women deeply personal to me when we look at the girls who come through attention center and the women in our adult Studies have found somewhere between sixty and seventy percent of them have been survivors of some type of Sexual abuse or trauma We've been number of them. Who Been Survivors of domestic violence and DID UNMET TRAUMA The need for a resource is often find women. Engaged in behavior or engaged in relationships are gauging situation that have him in our justice system. And because I've had that lived experience and I feel very thankful that I had not in the real intention with me How we look at these women in the whole real. What are the needs that they have? How do we make sure because either? Many of them are mother. And it incredibly disruptive when we put mothers into our jail probably these policies around they over for you know what we were finding is women. Were far more likely to sit in language. Because of inability to payment been a man gets arrested goes to jail of women will find a way to get that money to get him out. A woman goes to jail and she said and so you know what that then due to a mother who had a child at home that dude. Who's an hourly were and so a lot of our policies have directly been towards making sure that population scene because the disproportionate impact on women. Justice system is far greater than it is for mid and how they get to the system. dramatically different. Everyone has trauma Which is interesting gatemen men trauma but the of sexual abuse in the life of the women who've come through our system what that earns into an keenly focus on all right. There are a lot of women who listen to this podcast to our have run for office or thinking about running for office But not as many who fron for executive office and her face the particular challenges of that. Do you have advice? Suggestions things that you would recommend that they do or think about as they look toward offices like that Berta. I you gotTa Grow Up. I I have to cheerleader. We need to do this as daunting as it is. And heartbreaking days like today with Elizabeth more and it absolutely matters that were in these roles and then we take these roles unapologetic about the lens that we have because I believe. Did you good policy with the focus? Has a women have been woman list of all? And so what I was saying is run past That is unapologetically. Authentic to what? It means to be a woman doing this work. I said Park too often. I've seen women try to emulate men when running for these jobs or emulate men when they get these job though they don't want to be too disruptive are mere presence disruption are Russian. Be Pregnant of these women. In the presidential election was disrupted which is why it would be a concerted effort to get them out because they weren't electable because they weren't really wanted me to they weren't they were people who outlasted the number of the candidate who were far less a far less Innovative in because they were there. They were disrupted and so my encouragement. To women in don't be daunted I mean really we have to gird up and know that the the punch will come up but there is absolutely a deprivation of brilliant when we take ourselves out of the game and and our community star for. But I think we suffer when we don't have women in these speaking of that should enroll of state attorney of Alliott Scranton's both Comma Harrison like you prosecutors He pointed.
