Police Board president Ghian 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 in which wasn’t participating, and police beat him.
