A 2020 Chicago Tribune analysis found that Foxx dropped “29.9% of all charges against felonies, a dramatic increase over its predecessor.” Meanwhile, the Chicago Sun-Times reported in October that Cook County was on track to see its highest carjacking numbers in 20 years in 2021, a 43.5% increase in such crimes over 2020.

Also in October, a group of Illinois Republicans and Chicago-area police chiefs threw their support behind a bill in the state legislature that would allow them to override Foxx’s decisions to relax charges against criminal defendants. .

Foxx took on his critics in an op-ed essay published in the Chicago Tribune in August.

She accused him of “pointing to the blame” amid “an increase in” gun violence in Chicago.

“But pointing out the blame won’t protect us,” she wrote. “I invite my colleagues in law enforcement at the city, county, state and federal levels to join me at a table dedicated to advancing public safety and equal justice.

“If, as alleged, the policies of my office are proven to contribute to looting or anarchy, I will be the first to change them.”
