Chicago Police: My Concern Is that Hate Crimes Will Now Publicly Be Met with a Level of Skepticism

‘I’m also concerned about what this means moving forward for hate crimes’

EXCERPT:

JOHNSON: "Now, our city has problems, we know that. We have problems that have affected people from all walks of life. And we know that. But to put the national spotlight on Chicago for something that is both egregious and untrue is simply shameful. I’m also concerned about what this means moving forward for hate crimes. Now, of course, the Chicago Police Department will continue to investigate all reports of these types of incidents with the same amount of vigor that we did with this one.”
