Swelling racist and political tensions with local and national consequences bubbled to the surface Monday during two competing protests in Chicago.
Followed by prosecutor act of actor Jussie Smollett's alleged crimes, The Fathers Order of Police (FOP) Chicago Lodge Seven sponsored a protest from Cook County State's lawyer Kim Foxx. This protest was held in front of the Cook County Administration Building at 69 West Washington, where CCSA has offices.
FOP is the Chicago Police Union.
At the same time, counter protocols gathered to protest the police. (RELATED: Owens: Jussie Smollett deserves the Nobel Peace Prize) Several hundred people were shared fairly evenly.
Police protested about Foxx's handling of the Jussie Smollett case, where she made a dubious agreement and then made conflicting statements about it.
"Kim Foxx must go" crowd favoring police chanted repeatedly.
Foxx recently even admitted that although she for several weeks claimed to have recycled herself, she did not.
"The state lawyer formally did not re-use himself or the office on the basis of an actual conflict of interest," a spokesman told the Chicago Tribune box John Kass for a March 28 column.
"Although we use the term & # 39; recycling & # 39; as it relates to state lawyer Foxx & # 39; involvement in the case, was a conscientious use of the term in the legal sense," said the spokesman later in the box column.

"The Cook County State Attorney's Office has resolved for a moment, and that's the case that was the straw that broke the camel's back. Enough is enough, "said Tony, a CPD officer.

SJW's protest police
Meanwhile, social justice groups are led by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Suppression (CAARPR) had a demonstration against demonstrations and argued that the police have blown this situation out of proportion to minimize its own racism, corruption and incompetence.
"Sixteen shots and a cover" This page repeatedly argued and referred to LaQuan McDonald, shot by the Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke sixteen times.
This video was detained for over a year from October 20, 2014, the date of the incident, to the release on May 26. November 2015, two days after Van Dyke was charged.

Frank Chapman, co-chair of CAARPR, said: "Here we have the Polish brotherhood order, superintendent of the Chicago police, Eddie Johnson, the mayor. The same mayor who sat on the video tape LaQuan MacDonald was murdered for 40 days – we have him and then we have Donald Trump. So now it's the most racist alliance I've ever seen. "He added," These people are coming together to turn our movement up by using the Jussie Smollett case. We must not have it; We don't want it. We will not stand for it. "
" What is the FOP talking about? Have they come across police torture? Have they ever come across John Burge, who not only tortured people, but lied about it? "Chapman told a reporter.

John Burge is a former police officer in Chicago who led a torture rape from 1972-1991 that pulled out fake statements by African-American suspects in hundreds of cases by torture.
While he was never convicted of the torture himself, he was sentenced to lie about it in a case and sentenced to four and a half years in a federal prison.  Chapman talked to the caller that more than 100 cases were currently being reviewed by the Torture Inquiry Relief Commission (TIRC), still involves people in prison as a result of Burge. TIRC was created in 2011 by the Illinois Legislature to review cases where Judgments could have occurred due to police torture.
Superintendent Johnson and Code of Silence
Meanwhile, ka n CPD Superintendent Johnson has said something more significant to Fran Spielman in an interview for the Chicago Sun-Times released March 29, 2019. When asked about a clarity code in the CPD, he made this remarkable recording.
"Do I think there may be officers looking the other way? Yes I do. … There are many reasons why the police cannot report wrongly. If they see their partner engage in abuse, they look the other way, "he said.
Kevin Graham is the president of the Chicago FOP Lodge Seven. He held a press conference, and when asked by the caller about Johnson's admission, he defended his members.
"He's the superintendent. If he knows anything, he can act. I'm not aware of it, so I can't comment on that," Graham replied.
When he pressed, he said, "I can't tell what 18,000 of my members are doing every day. I can tell you that I don't know any kind of cover-up or any kind of silence code."
The Smollett Case and Chicago Mayoral Race
Graham then took a shot Chicago Mayor candidate, Lori Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor.
"Tell it to the federal prosecutor. That's what I told Lori Lightfoot, she wrote it. I said if you do something, you should have done something about it," Graham said.
Police corruption is usually investigated and prosecuted federally.
The Smollett case has fought a huge shadow at the Chicago Mayoral Race, which has its departure on April 2.
Toni Preckwinkle is the current Cook County Board President and she is up against Lightfoot, in the first match-up of two African American women in Chicago history.
Preckwinkle has recently been hammered out for her association with Foxx, who served as her chief of staff at the Preckwinkle & # 39; s board presidency.
"Lori Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor, said the public deserved more responses from Cook County state lawyer Kim Foxx's office on his decision to release all criminal charges against Smollett. Cook County Chairman Toni Preckwinkle offered no personal opinion on it. recent developments in a polarizing case that have drawn national attention and instead postponed to the prosecution for further explanation, "a new Chicago Tribune story noted.
Kass was more colorful, notes in his column of Preckwinkles relationship with Foxx: "But I can imagine Toni Preckwinkle with a confused smile on her face and say," I could have been mayor. ""
There were even a handful of people with red MAGA hats on. One woman said she didn't fear to wear it in Chicago.
