Kim Foxx Calls for Chicago FOP President to Resign Following Riot Comments

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx called for Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara to resign Friday following comments he made that seemed to dismiss critics of the mob that stormed the United States Capitol.

Catanzara dismissed critiques of the violent mob that stormed the Capitol as “ridiculous and ignorant,” saying that they were seemingly only guilty of property damage.

“There was no arson. There was no burning of anything. There was no looting. There was very little destruction of property,” he said. “It was a bunch of pissed-off people that feel an election was stolen somehow, some way.”

PARTNERS IN CRIME: The Siege On The Capitol, Police, And White Supremacy

That a throng of right-wing thugs, neo-Nazis, and insurrectionists were able to barge into the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday is, to make a severe understatement, troubling.

Once again, American cops have expressed support for a right-wing insurrection and, in at least three cases, have taken part in the riot themselves. The obvious contrast between Wednesday’s display and the treatment that Black Lives Matter protesters often face is so easy that it risks obfuscating the long historical connection between law enforcement and white supremacy.
