The graphic video of a Chicago police officer fatally shooting 13-year-old Adam Toledo sent shockwaves of grief and anger through the city on Thursday — including among aldermen, who froze their discussion of a high-profile housing ordinance with plans to return next week.
The City Council’s Committee on Housing and Real Estate was part-way through its meeting to consider Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s proposed overhaul (O2021-1226) of the city’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance when committee chair Ald. Harry Osterman (48) gaveled the meeting out for a 30-minute break timed with the Civilian Office of Police Accountability’s release of videos related to the shooting.
