Two views on Illinois’ new SAFE-T law

In the midst of a heated election season in Illinois, a huge bill is causing much controversy.

The legislation covers everything from police use of force to arming officers with body cameras. However, it is a piece of legislation that will eliminate cash bonds on January 1st that is getting the most attention.

The SAFE-T Act, short for Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act, puts the onus on prosecutors to prove through “conclusive and compelling evidence” that an accused “poses a real and present threat to the safety of a person.” specific, identifiable person or persons.”

WGN News invited two senior prosecutors, who belong to the same political party but have very different views on the SAFE-T Act, to a discussion. Kane County Prosecutor Jamie Mosser and Lake County Prosecutor Eric Rinehart came to the WGN Evening News on Tuesday.
