CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – OCTOBER 19: Chicago police officers patrol downtown as the city celebrates the Chicago Sky’s WNBA title on October 19, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. The city has started to place police officers on unpaid leave for refusing to comply with the city’s requirements that they report their COVID-19 vaccination status. Only about 65 percent of the city’s police have complied with the order. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins joins Anna to talk about yesterday’s shooting of a police officer in his ward, the ongoing battle between Mayor Lightfoot and the FOP over vaccine mandates, and what needs to be done to combat the violence that is plaguing the city.
