John Cox on Crime

Republican Party Chair, Cook County (IL)

 


Opposes “hate crimes” legislation

Q: I was arrested, jailed, and was charged under Pennsylvania’s hate crimes law. I faced up to 47 years in prison plus a $90,000 fine for attempting to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ at a homosexual pride event with those who are trapped in bondage to that lifestyle. If elected, can we count on you to veto any so-called “hate crimes” legislation?

Prosecute all illegal adult porn, plus white collar porn

Q: The Bush Justice Department is reticent to prosecute any but the worst hardcore pornographers--and most often, only the smaller companies that produce such filth. Meanwhile, hardcore pornographers have found their way into major hotel chains. Would your administration prosecute all illegal adult pornography, including so-called white-collar pornographers?

Morally opposed to death penalty, even for Tim McVeigh

Since the moratorium on the death penalty, Illinois politicians--whether Democrat or Republican--have for a long time either loudly voiced their support for capital punishment or kept their opposition to themselves. “It used to be the third rail,” said one pundit. “You touch it, and you died.” Not any more.

John Cox argues the moratorium is illegal. Cox has said he is so morally opposed to the death penalty that he does not think Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh should have been executed.
