NEWS: TWO CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS REPRIMANDED FOR TAKING A KNEE
Two Chicago police officers who kneeled alongside an activist in a social media photograph that went viral will face disciplinary action for making a political statement while in uniform, a department spokesman said. Activist Aleta Clarke posted the photo on Instagram Sunday, showing two police officers kneeling alongside her, with all three raising their fists. Chicago Police Department spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi, told the Chicago Tribune that the officers had been disciplined and reminded of department policies banning political statements while in uniform.
