Yesterday, our community was shaken by a deeply disturbing incident involving four juveniles who brutally beat a mentally challenged individual without any provocation. The images and videos circulating from this attack are heartbreaking and angering. As someone who has lived in Peoria my entire life, this is not the community I know, and it is certainly not the community I want for our future.

This senseless act of violence underscores the urgent need for strong and decisive leadership in our justice system. As your candidate for State’s Attorney, I am committed to addressing such heinous acts with the seriousness they deserve.

This attack is not just an assault on one individual; it is an attack on the very fabric of our community. It’s a stark reminder of why we must prioritize safety and justice for all.

My Commitment to Peoria

  • Swift Justice: If elected, I will ensure that incidents like these are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There must be accountability for those who commit such reprehensible acts.
  • Protecting the Vulnerable: We must provide additional protections for our most vulnerable citizens. This includes creating initiatives that focus on the safety and well-being of individuals with mental and physical challenges.
  • Community Engagement: Strengthening ties between law enforcement and the community is crucial. I will advocate for programs that foster mutual respect and cooperation, making it easier for residents to report crimes and feel supported by the justice system.
  • Preventive Measures: To prevent such incidents from occurring, we need to invest in education and outreach programs that teach empathy, respect, and the importance of protecting our community members, especially those who are most vulnerable.

A Call to Action

This incident is a call to action for all of us. We cannot stand by while such atrocities occur. As a lifelong resident of Peoria, I refuse to accept this as the new normal. Our community deserves better, and together, we can make it better.

I urge you to join me in this fight. Together, we can build a safer Peoria with Safe Homes, Safe Schools, and Safe Streets. Let’s ensure that our justice system is one that truly serves and protects every member of our community.

Thank you for your continued support. Let’s work together to restore the safety and integrity of our beloved Peoria.
