"What our community demands and deserves is more than prayers or platitudes, but action, Mayor Lightfoot," Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez told the mayor, who replied: "Sir, you are now out of order. You are out of order. … Mister clerk, please move on."
Mayor Lori Lightfoot clashed with Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th) Wednesday — and ruled him out of order — during debate on a resolution honoring the life of 13-year-old Adam Toledo.
“What our community demands and deserves is more than prayers or platitudes, but action Mayor Lightfoot,” Sigcho-Lopez told the mayor.
“We have a bill right now and you know this very well … in the Committee on Public Safety” empowering a civilian oversight panel to hire and fire the police superintendent and be the final arbiter on disputes over police policy.
Lightfoot banged the gavel and interrupted Sigcho-Lopez at the mere mention of a civilian oversight ordinance she promised to deliver in her first 100 days in office.
“Sir, you are now out of order. You are out of order. … Mister clerk, please move on,” the mayor said.
Sigcho-Lopez’s microphone was promptly cut..
Mayor want to honor his life... alderman like nah bitch let’s talk about this bill to hold cops accountable..
