Uhh nowhere does she say she will clean up the streets.

The question is "When do you think these policies you're implementing now will actually reflect change on the streets?" Brooke responds with in a few months.

Also:

"what you're going to see is a difference in the way that these cases are handled and the way that they're resolved... We can't be giving low level misdemeanors to people who are selling one of the most lethal drugs, if not the most lethal drug this market has ever seen."

Jenkins added she hopes these enhanced penalties will send a message to dealers. Brooke: "What I'm hoping is for those dealers who've been getting released right away, who have been getting no consequence, instead see there are consequences. I hope they start spreading the word to all the other fellow dealers saying this is not where you should come sell drugs anymore because there is a new tone here."

Jenkins announced the option for prosecutors to charge 16 and 17 year olds as adults in certain 'heinous cases'. There are only five crime types that will be eligible for this consideration which include: murder, attempted murder, torture, kidnapping, forcible sexual assaults, and aggravated mayhem.

Pretty much what we want her to do.

Shes got a lot of work to take care of. She needs to focus on the wins that she is getting. It's unrealistic that the city will be 100% by the general election date. But proof is in the putting. Let's she what she can do

She’ll clean up the streets in few months, you mean after she doesn’t get elected? (I’m being sarcastic and serious at the same time)

At best that's wishful thinking. At worst it's just lying.
