Connected to Chicago with Bill Cameron
This week on Connected to Chicago Donna More joins the show. More is running for Cook County State’s Attorney. She explains her qualifications, The downside of “Catch and Release”, Bail reform, and the Jussie Smollett fiasco. Is Political Correctness getting in the way of getting the bad guys off the streets?In this week's round table segment, Bill is joined by Ray Long of The Chicago Tribune, Heather Cherone, editor of The Daily Line, Greg Hinz of Crain’s, Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times. The conversation opens up with the news this week of Alderman Matt O’Shea declaring it’s time to end the “BS” of lobbying by elected officials, Jay Doherty resigns from the City Club of Chicago amid a growing investigation involving Mike Madigan, Lynn reports from Washington D.C. with an update on the Impeachment inquiry of President Trump, and Police Chief Eddie Johnson gets fired by the Mayor just a month short of Retirement.This weeks Connected to Chicago segment is with John Dempsey. this week John covers the 1969 Chicago Police raid that killed Chicago Black Panther leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark.While police had initially said the Black Panthers fired at them as they were trying to execute a search warrant, a subsequent federal grand jury investigation found that nearly all of the bullets were fired by the police. Then Cook County States Attorney Edward Hanrahan and 13 others were eventually charged with obstruction of justice, and cleared in a bench trial.Black voters responded by voting overwhelmingly for Republican Bernard Carey instead of Democrat Hanrahan, in the 1972 State's Attorney's race, which Carey won, the beginning of a period of black independence from the Democratic Machine which eventually resulted in the 1983 election of Chicago's first black Mayor Harold Washington.In 1982, the Justice Department, the city and Cook County settled the $47 million civil suit filed by survivors and the families of Clark and Hampton for $1.82 million.
