Rabbi Michael Ben Yosef started this petition to RESIGN Toni Preckwinkle Cook County Board President & Thomas Dart Sheriff of Cook County

CALL TO ACTION: The Cook County Department Of Corrections Division 10 is a "DEATHTRAP".

Inmates behind these walls do NOT have the proper supplies to protect themselves from the outbreak behind the walls known as COVID-19. 

Cook County Board President, Toni Preckwinkle & Sheriff of Cook County,  Thomas Dart needs to RESIGN IMMEDIATELY FOR FAILURE TO ACT PROMPTLY WHEN PANDEMIC SPREADED INSIDE THE JAIL. They both KNEW several inmates were affected with the disease and tried their best to SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG.  Also, they showed NO SENCE OF URGENCY to release inmates on minor charges so they themselves wont get affected with the DISEASE.  They FAILED in press conferences to be transparent as to what was happening on the inside. Cassandra Lee, the wife of Nicholas Lee who died on Easter Sunday called this facility over "130 times" on behalf of her loved one with no cooperation from the officials of the Cook County Jail. 

Therefore, we the People of Cook County have NO FAITH in these two officals to function in their elected positions and DEMAND THEY RESIGN EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.
