‘Chicago in Crisis’: Tucker Carlson highlights failures of Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx

Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently announced the launch of a new program on the network’s subscription streaming service Fox Nation called Tucker Carlson Originals, which features deep dives into particular topics.

In the premiere episode of the series, titled “Chicago in Crisis,” Carlson takes a sharp look at the surging crime rate in the city that has become “one of the most dangerous places” in the entire Western hemisphere.

No prosecution of violent crimes

Of particular focus in the debut episode is Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, a far-left prosecutor who was helped into office by the George Soros-backed Justice and Public Safety PAC.

Carlson made note of the substantial role Foxx has played in allowing the crime rate in Chicago to surge to nearly unprecedented levels, in large part by dropping criminal charges against arrested individuals and allowing them back onto the city’s streets.

In fact, Carlson asserted that in just her first year as the top prosecutor in Chicago, Foxx dropped charges against roughly 30% of the city’s felony offenders.

Carlson also pointed to Foxx’s minimal response to the civil unrest that rocked Chicago throughout the summer of 2020, how violent rioters and thieving looters often went uncharged after being arrested and how, of those who did ultimately face charges, most were released prior to trial.

Alleged murderer walking free

The Fox host also spent part of the program covering the quest for justice by the Tungekar family whose father was murdered. The alleged assailant, Uber driver Fangqui Lu, has been released by Foxx without any charges.

Making that particular case all the more outrageous is the fact that the fatal assault was captured on surveillance video, and clearly showed Lu delivering a roundhouse kick to Tungekar’s head.

Even though the Chicago police swiftly arrested Lu for the murder of Tungekar, and the incident was caught on video, Foxx allegedly still declined to press charges.

Failing her community

Carlson isn’t alone in exposing Foxx for the failure she has been. In November 2020, Heritage Foundation labeled her a “rogue” prosecutor while highlighting some of Chicago’s horrific crime statistics, especially involving shootings and homicides, that have accrued under her watch.

Heritage also took note of Foxx’s “get out of jail free” policies, which involve releasing charged individuals without bail. She has also dropped criminal charges against individuals at a stunning rate, with the most notorious being actor Jussie Smollett, who faked a “hate crime” against himself but walked without repercussions when Foxx dropped all 16 charges that a grand jury lodged against him.

“The fact is that most of those slain under Foxx’s haphazard and questionable leadership are black, and her policies harm the very communities she pretends to care about the most,” the Foundation concluded.

  1. Forums of this nature do a great disservice to America and those citizens (yes there are decent non-political Democrats among them) who provide protection, honor and support to our nation. Inadvertent or not, they force us to appear as wimps and not seriously concerned with lack, or improper behavior, by Congress and other government agencies. In effect it is endorsing such activity to become bolder. There is an unspoken, and un-noted, limit to what is occurring. When it is reached the end result will be deadly and beyond imagination. (this will not be printed because it implies violence, am correct editor?)

  3. I have an old friend who lives in Chicago. He did well for himself, he was from Tuscaloosa, like me & has stayed there many years now, retired. He lives in a protected tall building with his own parking space, all those nice things. Based on his description, it is a very segregated City & all that death & destruction will never be allowed in his zone. That’s the way Chicago works. It is mostly black violence as it is in most cities run by Dems. It’s that way here in Birmingham, though not as significant in numbers. This fine red State would never allow things to go too far in this declining blue city. My point I suppose is that the black city government & now the courts here, do not prosecute black criminals. Our Mayor told the Police to stand down & B’ham had it’s first riot, though small, last year since the 1960’s. They want this stuff. They will blame it on systemic racism or whatever trend that keeps the false facial narrative going. I’m 72, haven’t seen a Klansman or anything like that since I was a boy, here in Alabama.

  4. What does Soros have to do with our country he needs to be deported They want even let him in Russia Some people will do anything for money including betray your country. I say if you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas. Get rid of him. This man is evil.

    1. If you know the history of Soros, and how he helped the Nazis to find Jews who were hiding, there is no doubt that he is an evil piece of human crap!

    2. You’re right, but unfortunately Soros can still control a Country from afar. A military Trial for Treason would be in order.

  5. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

  6. I know that God and Jesus Christ will be coming back to Earth shortly and then we will see true punishment.

  7. I just placed an order and it didn’t let me put in my billing address in. It is different from my mailing address.
