Illinois Mayor Warns About Radical Criminal Justice Overhaul: ‘Most Dangerous Law I’ve Ever Seen

Life will soon get softer for criminals in Illinois.

An Illinois mayor,  Keith Pekau told Fox News on Monday that Illinois’ new criminal justice overhaul is the most dangerous law he has ever seen. Keith Pekau is running for Congress in Illinois’ 6th District. He has been very vocal about his opposition to the SAFE-T Act.

Safe-T stands for Safety, Accountability, Fairness, and Equity-Today.  And even though it has been tried everywhere else without working. Chicago officials point out that all of their other crime prevention work well and this will work just as well.

Keith Pekau said:

“We create potential anarchy because law enforcement can’t do their job and then people feel that they have to do that job. People aren’t trained in the use of force. They’re not trained to de-escalate situations.”

The Safe-T Act has a provision on cash bail, that will allow most criminals to get out of jail the same day without posting bail. Some of the crimes you won’t need bail for will include kidnapping, armed robbery, second-degree murder, drug-induced homicide, aggravated DUI, threatening a public official, and aggravated fleeing and eluding.

According to Pekau the new law completely changes the criminal justice system and could drive many people to take the law into their own hands, Worse yet, those people do not know how to de-escalate a dangerous situation.

“We create potential anarchy because law enforcement can’t do their job and then people feel that they have to do that job. People aren’t trained in the use of force. They’re not trained to de-escalate situations.”

The SAFE-T Act includes provisions to end cash bail for most offenses and it also limits how a person can be considered a flight risk. No wings, no jet pack, no danger.

And if they are sent home with an ankle monitor, you are not in violation for the first 48 hours after it goes off. So, you can kill someone as long as you get home within 48 hours. What? We aren’t going to give them checks for reparations?

Proponents of the bill argued that it would create a more equitable criminal justice system in Illinois and combat systemic racism.

“It was passed in the middle of the night, with 40 minutes to read an 800-page bill, which is unacceptable,” Pekau said in September.

“It abolishes cash bail for almost every offense. This includes — but isn’t limited to — kidnapping, armed robbery, second-degree murder, drug-induced homicide, aggravated DUI, threatening a public official, and aggravated fleeing and eluding,” he continued.

The Illinois mayor explained that the new law would drop trespassing from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class B. Pekau stated that law enforcement would no longer be able to physically remove a trespasser.

“Now they can’t arrest, they can only write a ticket,” he said. “So, they get to stay in that business, on your property, at your house, etc.”

Pekau argued that the bill is “just a potpourri of everything” that failed to consider “law enforcement, judges or all the stakeholders in place.” The mayor stated that the new law would allow criminals back on the streets.

The law was signed last year by Governor J.B. Pritzker and will go into effect on January 1st, 2023. Pekau says he hopes that the voters fire the governor and the leftists in the legislature that supports the new law.

He said:

“I don’t think we know what’s coming from this. I think we can project that if criminals are allowed to run free and police officers can’t protect citizens, citizens are going to start protecting themselves and take the law into their own hands.”
