That’s the question that commenter “Because Science” asked Sunday.
“The real issue here, as has been pointed out, is what a county SA will do.
“It may be telling that none of them have weighed in on that as of yet.
“If municipal cops, or even park district or MCCD cops for that matter, want to charge someone, then the ball falls into PK’s court to decide what to do about it.
“So far he hasn’t said anything.”
I have emailed McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally asking what he is going to do.
I found the following statement from Governor JB Pritzker on a website called “Bearing Arms:”
“These are folks who are entrusted by the public to enforce the law.
“They don’t get to choose which laws they enforce.”
Next came this observation:
“Tell that to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who said back in 2020 that her office would no longer be prosecuting low-level drug offenses.
“Tell that to the liberal prosecutors in places like Austin, Texas who’ve said they won’t be enforcing the state’s anti-abortion laws.
“With a finite amount of resources, virtually every law enforcement agency uses discretion and prioritizes which offenses to (depending on whether we’re talking about police or prosecutors) investigate, charge, and prosecute.
“Pritzker may have his king-sized panties in a bunch over the vociferous objections by the vast majority of sheriffs (and a growing number of State’s Attorneys as well), but there’s not much he can do about it.”
