In 2010, Toni Irving worked for Gov. Pat Quinn and helped develop the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative. That program is now the subject of multiple investigations while Irving runs a similar program for the city of Chicago.
When Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel gets asked about gun violence, he calls for three-year mandatory minimum sentences for people caught with illegal guns. Many researchers say he should hire more cops instead.
