Lightfoot Rejects Watchdog’s Probe of Botched Anjanette Young Raid, Won’t Release Findings

Mayor Lori Lightfoot rejected the probe of the botched police raid in February 2019 that left Anjanette Young handcuffed while naked and pleading for help conducted by former Chicago Inspector General Joseph Ferguson as incomplete and once again declined to commit to publicly release its findings.

Lori fooled everyone into believing she was a reformer when in fact she is the status quo.

Imagine: Cops bust into your house while you are sleeping, and a group of them hold you cuffed in your own home. You haven't done anything wrong, they have. They failed to do their job properly and have misidentified your home as the home for their search warrant - even though the person they were searching lived next door and had an ankle monitor on.

The CPD are fools and bullies. Lori Lightfoot is their stooge, carrying water for the lazy assholes at the CPD.

Why the fuck does she run so much interference for CPD? They're never going to like her. They're always going to trash her every chance they get. Its like an abusive relationship. Stop trying to win their approval.

"I've decided to reject your reality and have substituted my own."

In the days after the video of Young blanketed the airwaves and dominated newspaper headlines, Lightfoot promised “full transparency,” but has declined several times to release the report since it was submitted to the mayor's office.

Wrong or right why not release the report?

COPA already released their report and recommended some cops be fired over it.

If this other report is more damning, it's because now it's naming politicians and in Chicago you can't have that!

This has some major Rahm vibes. People will rightly compare this with Emanuel's (right or wrong) handling of the McDonald shooting.
