FOP Gets in on the CeaseFire Act
- There is heavy friction between the Chicago police union and CeaseFire after the anti-violence organization helped a shooting suspect turn himself in earlier this week.
Some say it’s the non-profit’s first big “get” after receiving $1 million in city funding. But some say the news conference was all show for CeaseFire.
“I’m a little skeptical about why they’re throwing a press conference,” says [some guy], president of the Fraternal Order of Police. “It’s something to justify spending a million dollars and try to portray like they’re doing something for society.”
However, the Roseland CeaseFire claims they aren't affiliated with the CeaseFire that got a cool million from Rahm. So does this mean that there are different factions of CeaseFire and each faction will be demanding a million bucks to put a lid on shootings (almost 50 so far this week) and do follow-up investigations for named offenders that police investigations have narrowed down?
