Ill. alderman who irritated cops to head police committee

Fraternal Order of Police President Mark Donahue: "I'd be hard-pressed to identify a poorer choice"


Chicago Sun-Times

CHICAGO — Far South Side Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) -- who has infuriated rank-and-file-police officers by targeting their supplemental pay and proposing more power for "rent-a-cops" -- was chosen by Mayor Daley on Wednesday to chair the City Council's Police Committee.

"I'd be hard-pressed to identify a poorer choice," said Fraternal Order of Police President Mark Donahue. But, he said, "We'll continue to work with the [committee] members for the benefit of Chicago Police officers and the people of Chicago."
