‘My Son is Not Safe’-Prosecutor Flees Chicago Amidst Crime Crisis

A 20-year veteran of the Cook County State Attorney’s Office in Chicago made a very public event out of his quitting the job – saying in a memo to his former coworkers that “this state and county have set themselves on a course to disaster.”

The prosecutor, Jason Poje, couldn’t stomach his continued participation in destroying a once-great American city.

“The worst part is that the agency for whom I work has backed literally every policy change that had the predicable, and predicted, outcome of more crime and more people getting hurt.”

The memo slammed the self-destructive “woke” policies of the infamous Kim Foxx, a Soros-funded DA who has presided over one of the worst crime sprees in Chicago’s history and has done little to slow it- in fact, Foxx gained notoriety in 2020 for dropping nearly a third of felony cases.

The articulate and blunt remarks from Poje would soon explode across right-wing media – with many Chicago residents applauding his bravery.

Poje would use the letter to criticize virtually every policy of Kim Foxx and other infamous Soros DAs, saying.

“Bond reform designed to make sure no one stays in jail while their cases are pending with no safety net to handle more criminals on the streets, shorter parole periods, lower sentences for repeat offenders, the malicious and unnecessary prosecution of law enforcement officers, overuse of diversion programs, intentionally not pursuing prosecutions for crimes lawfully on the books after being passed by our legislature and signed by a governor, all of these so-called reforms have had a direct negative impact, with consequences that will last for a generation.”

Poje also ranted against the prosecutor for endangering his family. Poje claimed to have found a quiet life in the suburbs long ago, but in the last few years, had it been disrupted by gunfire and open-air drug dealers roaming about – something that leaves him fearing for the safety and well-being of his five-year-old son.

Poje’s story is one many Chicagoans can sympathize with, as the innocent victims of reckless prosecutor policy flee the city in droves.

“Once we start doing too much of the defense’s job, once we pull our punches, once we decide that it’s worth risking citizens’ lives to have a little social experiment, that [prosecution-defense] balance is lost.” ~ Jason Poje

Poje ends his letter reflecting on the fondness he once felt for the windy city, which was destroyed by the suicidal policies and “social experiments” of the Cook County State Attorney. “I grew up [in Chicago], my family and friends are here,” Poje wrote, “and yet my own employer has turned it into a place from which I am no longer proud to be, and in which my son is not safe.”

Across the country, people like Poje are growing tired of Soros-funded criminal havens and leaving their once noble pursuits as big-city prosecutors and protectors of the American public.
