A Tweet Isn’t Action. Time For Pritzker To Get Serious on Crime

Governor Pritzker finally broke his silence on the soaring crime in Illinois via a single tweet.

Pritzker’s tweet comes after the Chicagoland area has seen nearly 200 highway shootings, Senator Durbin spoke out telling his personal story on highway gun violence, and Chicago is experiencing a level of violent crime that hasn’t been seen in a quarter century.
