Cook County States Attorney Kim Foxx confirmed Tuesday that her office will err on the side of dismissing charges stemming from arrests at demonstrations and for citywide curfew violations during the week of protests and civil unrest in the wake of George Floyds death.
Between May 30 and June 6, about 5,000 people across the county were arrested. Half of those resulted in misdemeanor charges, a quarter resulted in felony charges and the rest were curfew violations and disorderly conduct cases.
More than 800 of those misdemeanors will be reviewed and likely will be dismissed, the top prosecutor told the Sun-Times.
A recent Sun-Times analysis of charges related to curfew violations found that 75% of people charged in the city were African American. Chicago police records also showed that enforcement of the curfew was almost solely enforced on the citys West and South sides.
Foxx said she was disheartened by those figures, especially because the protests revolved around what people view as systemic racism in policing.

Foxx is an absolute disgrace as a prosecutor. She is openly hostile to the police and wants to release most, if not all, criminals.
I mean there just teeny little crimes, and they are for helping Democrats after all...
It’s always best to let thugs get away with their lawlessness, right Kim?
Well yeah, it’s a large chunk of her voter base.
Yeah, but treat arson, and walking around outside without a mask as "equal" offenses. Sure. You can't make this stuff up.
We are seeing the results of a soros backed effort to place radical AG’s in rat run states.
I guess “The Purge” was an instruction book.
Chicago police records also showed that enforcement of the curfew was almost solely enforced on the citys West and South sides.
Thats where 95% of the black on black murders are.
Speaking of Foxx and Chicago, from HeyJackass...

Chicago’s perps make WuFlu look like a piker.
Whenever you see the story is from the Far Left Chicago Sun Times, remember that this rag endorsed her and is her constant cheerleader. The Slime Times never finds fault with Foxx or Mayor Lighthead.
Kim Foxx confirms office will err on side of dismissing cases to encourage more protests and riots
Time for the feds to step in, no?
Children’s fathers matter.
I suspect this is partially due to having insufficient staff to prosecute the perps.
Just told my kids this....rioting, breaking curfew...sure, overnight in jail but charges will be dismissed in a month. Do what you believe is right...gov’t is like a weak parent...pitiful.
