SAY HER NAME: Chicago Mayor Botches Slain Officer’s Name, Calls Her ‘Ella Frank’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.13.21

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot botched murdered police officer Ella French’s name this week just days after the Windy City’s Top Cop made the same mistake.

“The horrible tragedy of Ella Frank’s murder,” Lightfoot said during the 2022 budget engagement forum held at Truman College on Thursday.

 

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown expressed his “outrage” Thursday after a federal judge released a suspect who allegedly supplied the firearm used to kill Officer Ella French on a $4,500 bond.

“To say that I am extremely disappointed in U.S Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Gilbert’s decision to release Jamel Danzy on an unsecured bond today is an understatement,” said Brown. “It is an outrage.”

“This decision sets a dangerous precedent that straw purchasers like Danzy are not a danger to society, despite the fact that his alleged actions directly led to the murder of a Chicago Police Officer and left another in critical condition,” Brown continued. “The outrageous abundance of illegal firearms in our city and our nation is a major factor driving the violence that is continually cutting short the lives of our loved ones and fellow human beings.”

“The role of the justice system, particularly that of federal prosecutors and judges is more important than ever, and by allowing Mr. Danzy to walk free the court has done a disservice to Officer French’s memory, to the entire Chicago Police Department, and to the thousands of men and women across the country who work around the clock, day in and day out to stem the violence that is plaguing our communities,” the superintendent said.

CHICAGO TRAGEDY: Weekend Violence Leaves 10 Dead, Including Police Officer Ella French

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.09.21

The City of Chicago witnessed another bloody weekend that left at least 10 people dead, including police officer and recent mother Ella French, an atrocity that sparked an outpouring of grief from the law enforcement community and local residents.

“Police, family and the Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the officer who died as Ella French, a 29-year-old who had worked as a Chicago cop since April 2018. She was the first Chicago police officer to be shot and killed in the line of duty since Mayor Lori Lightfoot took office in 2019,” reports the Chicago Tribune.

“My sister’s always been a person of integrity. She’s always done the right thing even when nobody’s looking. She’s always believed in people and believed in doing the right thing. … She’s always believed in taking care of people that can’t take care of themselves,” said French’s brother Andrew.

“She was a humanitarian. She believed in human rights. She was one of the officers on the force that thought they needed reform,” he said. “Because she’s seen the front line, just like I have. She’s always been a very caring person … When I was in Iraq, me and her, we talked. And she has some attributes that you don’t find in this world anymore.”
