Gov. Queer as a three dollar bill Quinn.... New Illinois law beefs up street gangs prosecution... THIS WILL SOLVE EVERYTHING! Just like Rahm Emanual's new crime strategy... actually like the 10th new crime strategy since Emanuel became mayor a year ago...since the other 9 have failed...Local prosecutors have a new way to target street gangs under a measure Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law today.
The new law is modeled after the federal racketeering law known as RICO, which was originally designed to target mobsters but in recent years has been used repeatedly by the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago to target the top leadership of street gangs.
Now the state version will allow county prosecutors to take similar action against a street gang as a whole, instead of individual members.
"We may convict the soldier, but we never get the general," said Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez, whose office drafted the legislation. "This bill will allow us to attack gangs in a different way."
