At last Monday’s Council meeting Diana Hauman was the only vote against the citizens Review Board of the local police. She did the right thing.
In this story (that went VIRAL) I stated in error what the Alderman said about Mike Matejka: https://blnnews.com/2017/07/25/bloomington-is-chicago/
She actually pointed out that he and a few others did not denigrate the police like many of the others did. I apologize to her for getting that part wrong.
You can listen to her comments by hitting play below. Mike Matejka’s comments are at 25:00. Maybe I was jaded by his comments . He claimed this board had nothing to do with the police department, it’s an historic issue in a racially tinged society.
