Link: New watchdog report condemns Chicago police, mayor for responses to protests, riots

The Chicago Police Department was blasted in a scathing city watchdog report that describes a plague of communication breakdowns, leadership gaps and indiscriminate uses of force during the massive protests and riots that swarmed the city last spring after the death of George Floyd.

Chicago has many problems. The police culture there is not helping. The mayor is not doing enough, or perhaps cannot do enough, to change the culture.
