You don’t have to pass good laws in the middle of the night.

Why is this only being discussed now? Where was the media when it was pushed through?

Some? Anyone with common sense is concerned. Not one single thing is better since JB, Kwame, Foxx, and Lightfoot took over. Fire JB, Kwame, & LL in November. How bad does it have to get?!?! #VOTEFORCHANGE

Read the entire law. Ending cash bail is only the tip of the iceberg. Limits on police action, training, use of deadly force, earlier release for prisoners, limiting mandatory supervision after release for some felons. This law is terrible for citizens but great for criminals.

won't amend it, this is exactly what he wanted. A bill for criminals. He wants Illinois to be the first state to have the Purge.

Lot of debate about the true facts of the law, but even leaving the detention up to a judge's discretion does not sound like a good idea at all. Regarding crime, laws need to be tough and firm or else criminals feel emboldened.

When a low gets passed in the middle of the night, you know it's a garbage.

White suburb democrats vote for this kind of garbage because there is no crime where they live
