Senator Craig Wilcox, Candidate for State Senate in the 32nd District, has released a statement demanding the repeal of the SAFE-T Act to address the crime wave:

“The Democrats’ passage of the SAFE-T Act has made our communities less safe, and I’m calling for a full repeal of this dangerous policy. The provisions Democrats are now forcing on every Illinois community have been a massive failure in the City of Chicago. Violent crime is way up. Criminals are more emboldened because they know their crimes will be met with a mere slap on the wrist. Law enforcement officers are leaving the profession in droves because anti-police policies make them less safe on the job. Departments can’t fill vacancies because those who would consider a career in law enforcement know Illinois Democrats favor the rights of the accused over the rights of victims and the safety of officers.  As long as Illinoisans continue to elect far-left extremists like (her name), dangerous policies like the SAFE-T Act will continue to become law in this state, and our families’ safety will continue to be threatened. We must repeal the SAFE-T Act and enact criminal justice reform that holds criminals accountable, protects victims' rights, and treats our sworn officers with the respect and safety precautions they deserve.”
