Tell Rahm Emanuel: hold the CPD accountable!
The Chicago Police Department is in bad shape. They’ve consistently used excessive force, conspired to cover up a crime, and even committed torture. But, incredibly, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is backing off his promise to institute federal oversight that would ensure that the CPD gets its much-needed reform.
Here’s the good news: there’s a growing chorus of Chicago public officials calling on Emanuel to keep his promise. If he gets enough pressure, he’ll be forced to commit to federal oversight.
And that’s where you come in: if you live in Chicago, you can call on Mayor Emanuel to keep his promise, and ask your aldermen to do the same.
If you live in Chicago, tell your reps: institute federal oversight of the CPD!
Don’t let Mayor Emanuel back down on his promise for police reform.
