The [Thursday] Papers

Someone I don't know well but is in my orbit has been having scary mental health issues to the point that an intervention is clearly needed. He's been harassing others and seems like he could be a danger to them or himself. I've discussed with others what the appropriate response is. An obvious course of action is to call the police. I've been afraid to do that because he's an African American and I fear in an interaction with the police he could end up dead when he really just needs help.

"A Chicago cop wearing a Trump jersey was jeered as he tried to explain an incendiary remark about why he opposes oversight of Chicago police, while a woman with her grandson on her hip surrounded by young men claiming to be victims of police abuse raised her voice as she vowed anything short of comprehensive civilian control over the maligned department won't be tolerated," the Tribune reports.

"Officer John Catanzara, who wore a baseball jersey emblazoned with 'TRUMP' on the back and 'USA' on the front, said he wanted to clarify remarks he made at a previous hearing. If community oversight passed, he had said, 'We're coming for you.'

"Catanzara tried to explain the remark to the jeering crowd Tuesday night, saying it was 'ridiculous' to think he was trying to incite a riot. Later in a telephone call, Catanzara said that his original remark was a warning of plans to unseat any aldermen who vote for community oversight."
