Suburban Life Sound Off: July 2-8

What is prosecution rate for rape in DuPage County?

Females are being encouraged to come forward and report sexual harassment and sexual assaults. Only one in three will report a rape. For those that do, the prosecution rates are dismally low. A major factor in the number prosecuted is the district attorney. Is our [DuPage County state's attorney] aggressive or above average in this area? Females are half of the population of DuPage County, and thus in the interest of the state. What are [Robert Berlin's] statistics in cases reported and cases charged? Brought to trial? Convicted? How does he stack up in this area? The people of DuPage County have a right to transparency in this area. Rape affects everyone in the assaulted female’s life: husbands, brothers, fathers, friends, and on and on. The survivor is affected in complex and layered ways. Is our [state's attorney] adequately seeking justice in this area? I think he should publish the statistics so that voters can make informed decisions. If he says he does not have those statistics, I think we already have our answer. If he has an improvement plan, let him publish it.

Come here legally

Sorry they come here illegally. They should be detained. Those like my family coming legally should be applauded. The ones coming illegally need to go home. Want to come here? Do it the way my family did.

Worse health care

Just received another political mailer that says he'll fix Obamacare. News alert: Donald J. Trump is the president of the United States. Not Barack Obama. President Trump has gutted Obamacare so it is gone and has been replaced by Trumpcare. We were promised two years ago that we would have better and cheaper health care. So far, the Republicans have given us worse and more expensive health care. You had your chance. Time to go.
