In the wake of a tragic police shooting in the City of Chicago, the first resulting in the death of an officer in some time in that city, defunding law enforcement departments across the nation has come into the spotlight. The Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, is known for her stance that the police in the most crime-ridden city in the nation needed downsizing.
On Monday, the members of the fraternal organization of that fair city demonstrated what they thought in dramatic fashion.
One of the officers, Ella French, 29, later died of her injuries. The father of the second officer, himself a retired member of the Chicago police, berated Lightfoot and blamed her for the incident, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Lightfoot listened to the father and then attempted to speak with other officers present. However, the group of officers walked away turned their backs on the mayor.
“They did the about-face—it looked like it had been choreographed,” one person told the Sun-Times.
The cops turned their backs to their boss.
“We’re significantly down in officers. They are rushing for the exits. They are leaving law enforcement. They’re looking to get hired by suburban municipalities. They feel that leadership in Chicago does not have their back,” O’Shea said.
And so they gave Lightfoot theirs.
It should be expected that when executives do not back their workers in a way that keeps them all fairly protected, that the workers will find a way to not back the boss. In the case of Chicago, the police seem to have had enough and demonstrated that. Choreographed or not, it was a beautiful sight.
