A Chicago Teachers Union rally held two weeks ago is drawing controversy for anti-police comments made over a hot microphone in front of many children who were dismissed from school for the event.
During the rally, closing remarks were made from a non-union teacher from a local private school who shouted “F*** the police, F*** CPD, F*** the FOP. F*** the police and everybody f****** with them.”
The teacher -identified as Page May- delivered her rant after CTU President Karen Lewis said that “Cops are not our enemies. If they let us, we will make them more helpful. Our kids are not criminals.”
The incident raised alarms and reviling remarks from the Fraternal Order of Police and members of the Chicago Public School system who support the Union but not the radicalization over recent years.
According to the Chicago Tribune Reverend Jesse Jackson was also in attendance at the CTU Rally. Jackson is known for his anti-police sentiments.
Ultimately, the incident went without punishment. The union posted a status update on its Facebook page about the event’s success, only casually mentioning a speaker who went “off message” and “condemned police in a way that our union does not condone.”
