To Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, what happens between consenting adults is a completely private matter.
In fact, she is challenging the limits of libertarian ideology.
For example, when five gangsters were arrested for holding a public gunfight in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood last week, shooting more than 70 rounds at each other in all, she decided to let them go without charges.
After all, as her office explained to police, it was a quarrel between “mutual combatants !”
Even Chicago’s leftist mayor, Lori Lightfoot, is a bit uncomfortable with this decision .
“I believe that there are charges that can be brought at a minimum against the individuals who initiated the gunfire,” said Lightfoot. “We can’t live in a world where there’s no accountability.”
