“The message keeps getting out police are systemically racist. And it's just not true... The past couple of years have been bad for those [police] men and women, and there's gotta be big investment in leadership, in equipment, in training, anything they need.
And it's got to come not only from the superintendent, but it's got to come from the mayor, it's got to come from the state's attorney and it's got to come from the judges.
