Better than Fox News Sunday and Meet the Press: Berkowitz on cable/web:

Is IL incarcerating criminals less & getting more crime?

Any GOP GOV candidate arguing to reverse that IL policy?

Any GOP Gov candidate arguing:

Pritzker soft on violent crime: look at the legislation he supports, the State’s attorneys he supports, the judges he supports, the judicial policies he supports, his absence of a real bully pulpit on violent crime.

2. Teachers’ unions harmful.

3. For much more parental K-12 school influence control.

4. For much lower IL public sector salaries & pensions.

5. For much lower ILproperty taxes and how to accomplish that: Reform collective bargaining laws, including repeal of teachers’ unions right to strike.

Do IL and the Nation suffer from too little judicially ordered detention and incarceration of dangerous criminals?

Are IL Dems the real racists on crime (tolerating for decades inhumane violence on the south and west sides of Chicago) and K-12 education (tolerating for decades 15% to 25% of minorities at CPS reading at grade level) ?

Are blacks disproportionately in IL jails and IL prisons because they disproportionately commit violent crimes, including homicides of other blacks?

For answers to these questions, watch this week’s “Public Affairs.”

–IL’s education spending, which is the 8th largest in the Nation,

–Il’s 2nd highest property taxes in the Nation,

–IL’s teachers’ unions monopoly power

— IL’s enormously high teacher salaries and pensions.

Also, who is favored, as of now, to win the GOP Gov Primary? And, why?  

And, learn:
