Sawyer statement on Tyre Nichols video

The Tyre Nichols video is sickening and a tragic reminder we have a long way to go on racial disparities in policing.

As the architect of Police Reform in Chicago I never want to see another case like this one, or the video of Laquan McDonald, or countless other Black and Brown people for whom a minor traffic stop can turn deadly.

I have worked my whole life to make us better than this as a nation and as a city.

While the acts committed by these officers is inhuman, I join Mayor Lightfoot in urging protesters to remain peaceful while they rightly demonstrate against this criminal abuse of authority
