Dean Angelo Sr., president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, said he thinks members of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s hand-picked Police Accountability Task Force were just going through the motions to reach their cop-hater conclusions before releasing a controversial report.
The report concludes that officers with the Chicago Police Department have no respect for the lives of people who are not white.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said newly appointed Superintendent Eddie Johnson and his team will “carefully review and consider” the task force recommendations.
But the FOP’s Angelo says the report’s not worth the paper it’s printed on.
That’s because the task force members looking into bias at the agency are, in fact, the ones who are biased.
“I believe they had an agenda or a built-in bias going in,” Angelo said. “And I don’t see the need to do that when the Department of Justice are the subject matter experts, not the task force.”
Since the DOJ is slated to look into practices at Chicago PD as well, there will likely be another controversial report coming down the pike very shortly.
