Chicago FOP President: Police Facing Unprecedented Level of Disrespect

On this edition of Against The Current, Dan Proft has a riveting conversation with Dean Angelo, Sr., President of Chicago Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7.

Angelo says the claim of systemic racism within CPD as presented in the report issued by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s task force is “ridiculous.”

Angelo predicts Chicago will “light up this summer” because, in part, of a level of disrespect being shown to Chicago police he hasn’t seen in his 36-year career in law enforcement. 

Angelo adds that the result of people who have no idea how police do their job telling them how to do their job is “more people will die.”

Check out the explosive, wide-ranging discussion of police, street violence and politics with FOP President Dean Angelo, Sr., on this week’s ATC.
