Democratic candidate for governor Tio Hardiman lead a prayer vigil outside of the Cook County Jail Thursday morning.

Hardiman and his group were calling attention to the 2,000 inmates at the jail who have been diagnosed with mental illness.

In addition, Hardiman says the jail is reaching full capacity and this overcrowding problem must be addressed.
