U.S. House focuses on violent crime in Chicago at hearing

(The Center Square) – Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of criminal prosecutions was in the national spotlight Tuesday.

The Republican-controlled U.S. House Judiciary Committee planned a “Victims of Violent Crime in Chicago” hearing at the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police hall. An announcement of the hearing said the panel of congressional members and experts would look into how Foxx’s “pro-crime and anti-victim policies are leading to an increase in violent crime and a dangerous community for Chicago residents.”

Panelists were to include Gianno Caldwell, family member of a murder victim, Lt. John Garrido III, a retired detective with the Chicago Police Department, and Carlos Yanez, Jr., a retired officer with CPD.
