Good Idea? Or Not?

  • For Jeremy Arn, being a prosecutor in Milwaukee's most dangerous neighborhoods means spending more time on the streets than in court.

    His officemates are police officers in District 5, the city's busiest, and his focus is not just locking people up, but preventing crime and giving people second chances.

    The transformation of the prosecutor's traditional role and the collaboration with police has special significance in Milwaukee, where the incarceration rate for African-Americans in some neighborhoods is the highest in the U.S. and law enforcement is hoping to rebuild a strained relationship after two nights of riots last summer when a black officer fatally shot a black man during a traffic stop. The arrangement has made prosecutors more accessible to residents, though its success is much harder to quantify than courtroom work.
Someone can correct us if we're mistaken, but some ASA rode along with a DUI guy (since many traffic guys ride 99), and after watching him do a DUI, had the copper charged when the observation period didn't meet the State standard. The copper contended that his observations period started upon arrest/detention, but the ASA insisted it began in the station. We have no idea how that one played out.

Fortunately, Kim Foxxx has "shortcutted" the system by not charging people (or folks) AND unilaterally circumventing State Law by raising the minimum requirements for certain charges.

I do not think it will work. I would love to be wrong.

Hopefully he will keep decent records, and we can see how many never had any further interaction with the criminal justice system.

I don't care how many purple people eaters are in jail - if they do the crime, they get arrested, tried, and locked up.

Don't like that? Don't commit criminal acts.

Anything else sounds like some 6th grader turning his life around woke up from a nap in stats class and got an idea...

The DUI guy was dating the ASA at the time. They had a falling out, and what happened to that officer was an ex-girlfriends revenge! Sad, but very true! She is now a trial court supervisor at 26th and California, and thinks she is something special! JL is a piece of garbage! I was never a fan of JH from 025, but he did not deserve what happened.

The shooting of a black man by a black police officer in Milwaukee was justified as the suspect was fleeing from the police and disobeyed a command to drop his weapon. Notice how the liberal narrative from the media omits this key fact. The deceased had a lengthy criminal record and it was illegal for him to possess a weapon.

Never knew the prosecutors office was tasked with giving people "second chances". How does that work? If the offender has never raped, robbed or killed before, he gets a black check mark by his name? And next time "he'll really get it!"

more to the story,,,the copper was cocky and showing off and told the ASA all his shortcuts and bragged about lying on the paper, including the street circumstances, the SFSTs, the wait times, etc.

The ASA was called by the defense and spoke the truth.

Copper brought up on perjury, all his cases were examined and 99% of the guilty outcomes were reversed. Copper fired, but i don't think he went to prison

All because the copper wanted that stupid pin from MADD.

The cook county asa and judges are friends of the convicted sex offender. They refuse to follow the the IL SOR law - sexoffender registration laws- and turn their backs on all children by allowing child sex offenders, the ones that sodomize 6 year old little boys and penetrate 4 year old little girls, to live anywhere they want, even if it's across the street from a school or living above a daycare center. The law says they can't and cook county prosecutors say " we don't care, not gonna prosecute" . Not on Kim Foxx's agenda. Everyone in felony review should hang their heads in shame. The next kid they assault is on your negligence.

Real victims, when they actually exist, do not get a second chance, ever.
So why should the criminals?
Victims have to live with the criminals actions the rest of their lives.
Criminals have to do so as well.

Prevention? Ahhhh hahahahahahahaha. Right.

There is no such thing! There never was and there never will be. There is only punishment doles out for those who choose to be criminal. Endless lines of victimless crimes in the name of prevention have served only to prevent two things - 1) the exercise of rights by those who would never BE criminal in the first place and 2) create a cast array of "Crimes" to adjudicate when there is no actual victim, meanwhile actual victims are terrorized, robbed, beaten, raped and otherwise accosted fairly by criminals who are eesentially free to run rampant as the cops play "prevent crime" by arresting OTHER people who "might" actually, someday, maybe, could, bring harm to another person, possibly.

We can not FIX a problem we refuse to admit exists. We must FACE the reality that the "prevention" strategy is fundamentally doomed to fail when protecting and defending Liberty is the goal. In fact, with that in mind, it is time to call out the REAL Premise of all this, that it really is meant to DEFEAT Freedom itself.

That which is not mandated shall be prohibited - by code of course. Everything then being a permission. You know, No Rights Allowed. Can't speak freely, ya might offensdsomeone. Can't go armed, someone might get shot. Can't write what you want, only those credentialed reporters can do that, because someone might write something untoward about government permissions allowed some people but not others - oh wait....See it yet?

Bad Idea alright. The Prevention Premise is a lie, no and before.
It will always be, period. It is just a tool used by controllers to con people into conceding their choice making ability, their Liberty itself.

Dumb idea. It's 3 separate branches of government, let them stay on the judicial side. Why does everyone think they can reinvent the wheel?

Imagine the outrage if a citizen or cop shot and killed an armed 6 year old in today's climate. Non stop riots. So people if your ever confronted with this situation kneel
Over and have the kid shoot you in the temple and thank him for doing so before trigger is pulled. What society has become that police officers are simply asked to stand there and get shot without taking action cause we don't need another 50 million lawsuit and riots that will last months. Join CPD and be happy with people who shoot and kill us with a smile on your face should be the new recruitment posters

JH is ok. SA OFFICE dropped the charges and JH is still on the job I believe in iden as he can't testify in court. He was doing the job no one else wanted to do.More Monday morning QB's.There are plenty of other coppers out there doing way worse and skate thru the system. I'm glad he beat it and is back on.

Wow the blatant misinformation people post here is amazing. First of all go to the Chicago Police Board website to read the ruling on the officer (JH). He was in ident before he was given his 30 pending and if you read the ruling you will see he was reinstated but only because he was previously served with a 1 day suspension for the actual incident and state law prohibits you from being punished twice for the same incident (all in the Police Board ruling). When he was reinstated several years ago he was assigned to 376 in a restricted (stripped) status. He does have his job but will never work the street again. Take the time and do your research before you post..also there were 2 A.S.A.'s doing a ride along with him, not 1. JH is a good guy and took thousands of drunks off the road.
