*** UPDATED x1 *** Rep. Monique Davis to speak about her “cops killing kids” comments
Friday, Jul 19, 2013
* According to NBC5, Rep. Monique Davis will hold a press conference at 2 o’clock to discuss her comments this week on a Detroit radio station. Davis, as you already know, claimed she’d heard people say that Chicago cops may be behind some of the murders of her city’s African-American kids. When pressed, she said she didn’t know if the cops were or were not killing kids.
You can watch the 2 o’clock presser by clicking here. I will probably be out of the office by then, so help us live blog the event in comments.
* Rep. Davis has easily survived several serious Democratic primary challenges over the years. She’s infamous for her outrageous remarks and she usually loves the attention. We’ll have to see what happens today.
*** UPDATE *** Rep. Davis told reporters she does not believe that the police are behind the murders. She also said many of her friends are policemen.
Rep. Davis, however, adamantly refused to apologize.
...Adding… Her claims that she didn’t say the cops were behind the killings is a lie…
