Revolution in community control of policing in Chicago. 3 Steps forward - Half step back, following the Mayors latest shenanigans.

Six Chicago aldermen speak in favor of the Empowering Communities for Public Safety (ECPS) ordinance that was blocked this past Friday in the Public Safety Committee from moving into the full city council for discussion and a vote, in an effort by the Mayor and her white allies to subvert the peoples demand. Empowering Communities for Public Safety (ECPS) would begin the radical change in policing in Chicago demanded by the communities most negatively effected by a long existing system that provides cops with impunity, and tolerates a corrupt, racist system that has permeated City Hall.

Years of organizing have brought together over a hundred community groups and the two main organizations that had competing plans to fix the crisis in policing in Chicago, even though their end goal was shared, and whose combined support in the City Council is now sufficient to pass ECPS. Other speakers are activists and formerly incarcerated Gerald Reed, a torture survivor whose police torturers still retain impunity for their crimes along with the dozens other of cops known to torture confessions and fabricate evidence to obtain convictions. There are more than 100 men languishing in prison, some for life as a consequence of a dysfunctional city government..
