Two Guys on Politics discusses Ukraine war, and Pritzker’s Safe T Act which promotes violence
Weekly Podcast with former Congress Bill Lipinski, political columnist and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania, and producer Brian Broeking discusses the Ukraine war, and digs deep into the dangers of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s Safet-T Act which reduces punishments on accused criminals while exposing law abiding citizens to criminal dangers. Pritzker pushed the 800-page law through the Illinois General Assembly late in the night in January 2022 without discussion and set the start date for many of its most dangerous provisions until after the Nov. 8, 2022 elections hoping voters would not be aware of what he did
Two Guys on Politics, the podcast featuring former Congressman William O. Lipinski and political columnist and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania, addresses the challenges facing America in the War in Ukraine, and digs deep into the failure of Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker to protect law abiding citizens.
With help from controversy-plagued Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, Pritzker crafted introduced the 2021 Illinois Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today, or the Safe-T Act which significantly eases punishments on violent criminals and puts more responsibility on police to respect criminal rights.
The Safe-T Act fails to protect law abiding citizens and Foxx and others have said that the legislation, which was pushed through the Illinois General Assembly late int he evening in January 2022, was intended to serve people of “Black and Brown color” to offset “historic” unfairness in the criminal justice system.
The Safe-T Act in fact makes it easy for accused and charged criminals to skip the justice system after they have been arrested allowing them to return to the street on promises by them that they will appear in court.
The Safe-T Act eliminates automatic cash bond requirements although Pritzker asserts the decision on who gets bond now rests with Cook County judges — Cook County judges have the most scandal and corruption of any court system in the country. But in truth, judges can only impose cash bond in certain cases allowing individuals charged with violent physical assault, murder and rape to go free pending trial.
