After Eliminating Cash Bail in Illinois, State Senator Is Carjacked by Armed Assailants
You reap what you sow, I suppose, and karma is a b*tch. And after completely trashing the state’s cash bond system in January of this year, one Illinois state senator is probably regretting her vote in favor of the action.
From the Forest Park Review, “Passage of the Pretrial Fairness Act makes Illinois the first state in the nation to completely abolish cash bail — i.e. the requirement that arrestees post a monetary bond as a way of insuring that they return for their trial.”
But perhaps some system of keeping bad guys and gals in jail might be a good thing. State Senator Kimberly Lightford, with her husband, was carjacked on December 21, 2021. Three armed assailants fired multiple shots during the event. Though no one was hurt, the carjackers made off with her Mercedes Benz.

Will the lawmaker learn her lesson, maybe admit that she and her fellow politicians in the Illinois State Assembly were wrong? Probably not. They never do. If they did, the Waukesha killer wouldn’t have been let out on $1000 bail and allowed to kill people, which an Illinois Democrat called karma for Kyle Rittenhouse being found not guilty.
No. Democrats will make up some kind of excuse for the carjacking—perhaps the criminals needed bread or something—and the country will be worse for it.
