Chicago deputy chief dies by apparent suicide at facility targeted recently by BLM protesters
July 29, 2020 | Tom Tillison

Being a law enforcement officer has always been fraught with risk, as the next call a cop takes has the potential to be the last call. But the danger doesn’t stop there, as the stress of the job results in a high number of suicides within the profession.

With police under siege in America following the death of George Floyd, a top ranked member of the Chicago Police Department command staff has been found dead.

Deputy Chief Dion Boyd was found Tuesday morning at the Homan Square facility on the West Side, an apparent victim of suicide, according to CBS Chicago.

Sometimes we forget the mental toll of abuse that our  LEO's are seeing of late.  This occupation has taken an unneedless beating from the worst in our society.  I hope the tables are turned soon.   
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

From the article linked in the OP:

In a series of tweets, Lightfoot talked about bolstering the support network for first responders and told officers they “are deserving of help and healing.”

I hope she rots from the inside out and runs down her legs.
She has a lot of damned gall after the way she treats Chicago's police.
How God must weep at humans' folly! Stand fast! God knows what he is doing!

Heartbreaking because he was one of the good guys, that puts it ALL on the line.
