The incident between 5 Memphis police officers and Tyre Nichols has, I am sure, left 6 Black families in Memphis in trauma. Since Chicago citizens are about to select a mayor for the next four years, I think it is only fitting that the citizens hear from all of the candidates about how they would handle such an incident.
Of course, Dr. Willie Wilson during the first mayoral debate on Jan. 19 explicitly stated how he would handle the situation and I quote, “Somebody run, chase somebody by foot or car, that police officer should be able to chase them down and hunt them down like a rabbit.”
Let’s hear from the other candidates. How would you as mayor handle an incident such as the one in Memphis. I think Chicago voters deserve to hear from each of them.
