Chicago police push back against Mayor Lightfoot's vaccine mandates

It seems that the government structure in the city of Chicago seems more concerned with protecting criminals than supporting law enforcement.

Ammie Kessem is Chicago’s 41st Ward Republican Committeeman and a Sergeant of Police in the Chicago Police Department.

Kessem says violent crime is on the rise and Mayor Lori Lightfoot “almost single-handily” enacted a policy that will take officers off of the streets of Chicago.

“We cannot afford to lose even one officer right now.”

Listen to Kassem’s discussion with Annie above.
