City Council meeting ends abruptly after aldermen delay passage of two controversial measures
Wednesday’s City Council meeting ended abruptly after aldermen temporarily blocked two proposals up for consideration, delaying the formal introduction of dozens of new measures including the “Anjanette Young Ordinance,” which would establish new search warrant standards for the Chicago Police Department.
Prior to Wednesday’s meeting, a group of Black alderwomen and Anjanette Young held a news conference outlining their proposal to help rein in issues with Chicago Police Department search warrant executions gone awry. The measure was spurred by the botched raid on Young’s home, during which police handcuffed her while she was naked and telling officers they had the wrong home.
