Chicago Mayor Slammed for Crime Spike by 911 Dispatcher Who Helped Shot Officer
December 29, 2021
A Chicago 911 dispatcher is stirring up controversy over his viral comments slamming Mayor Lori Lightfoot. “This mayor does not care about Chicago police officers, period,” Keith Thornton said in a video on social media. Just months ago, Thornton was lauded for his precise coordination in the Chicago police shooting that killed Officer Ella French and wounded her partner. Mayor Lightfoot is asking the U.S. Attorney General to send federal agents to crack down on illegal guns.
