ABC 7 Chicago Weekend Watch
Tune in to ABC-7 Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. to catch the latest Weekend Watch segment where we focus a spotlight on government. BGA President and CEO David Greising wrote a column breaking down the Mayor's strategy that includes solutions like increasing the involvement of the feds, suspending custody alternatives for people who have been charged with violent crimes (i.e. electronic monitoring). Cook County Public Defender Sharone Mitchell and many law advocates have opposed Lightfoot's plans — Mitchell even calling it "unconstitutional." The Mayor expects to put a strategy in place by summer 2022.
