Mayor Brandon Johnson, taking time between hospitalizations for panic attacks when things don’t go his way, announced that he supports removing all Chicago Police School Resource Officers from the Chicago Public Schools. Why does he and the left hate the little people?
Because NOTHING bad ever happens in and around Chicago Public Schools property. Certainly not double murders like last Friday.

School resource officers save lives and deter violent crime.
They also stop attempted murder sprees in schools.
But Brandon Johnson wants them out. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson says he supports ending the controversial Chicago Public Schools program that puts uniformed police officers in dozens of high schools.
The mayor said in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times and WBEZ on Tuesday that he will give the Board of Education the green light to end its $10.3 million contract with the Chicago Police Department. CPS officials told principals in early January to prepare for the possible removal of police officers by next fall.
“The Board of Education is moving in the direction that I do support,” the mayor said in his conference room on City Hall’s fifth floor. “There is an intergovernmental agreement between Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Police Department. To end that agreement, there’s no qualms from me there.”
