A.D. Q&A with Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx

Episode Summary

As Chicago closes the book on a pandemic-fueled violent summer, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx explains her progressive approach to prosecutions: fewer felony drug and shoplifting charges, and more emphasis on gun violence. Foxx, the county's lead prosecutor, goes in-depth on the controversies that have kept her office in the headlines, including the sometimes-rocky relationship with city and suburban police, a public disagreement with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Superintendent David Brown on the initial charging decision in a recent West Side shooting case and Foxx's ongoing commitment to bail reform.
