After Police Board President praised police for their restraint, police beat him hours later.

Foreman praised the police for their restraint at protests and for not hurting people. The police beat him a few hours later.

President of the Chicago Police Board Ghian Foreman said police beat him with a baton.

This came just hours after he praised police for their professionalism, and how much “restraint” they showed at protests. He continued on to tell the Chicago Police:

“I would not have had the same restraint that many of your officers showed last night,”

And just hours later, he said he happened to walk by a protest that he wasn’t participating in, and police beat him.

He released a statement on Friday saying:

“I, indeed, was one of several individuals physically hit and struck by Chicago police on Sunday as they clashed with protestors, I was not participating in the protest, but coincidentally encountered the demonstration at a moment when it became confrontational.”

He stated that the police struck him with a baton 5 times. He later filed a complaint.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she urged Foreman to file a complaint, stating:

“There’s no reason that should’ve happened. He is hurting physically, I think he is hurting emotionally, and what happened to him is unacceptable.”
