    Pure persecution…. she needs to go to prison! I don’t know all the details, but it sure sounds like the Dolton police chief needs fired. “All members of the Police Department shall, before entering upon duty as police officers, take and subscribe an oath of office substantially in the following form:

    “I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and of the State of Illinois, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of police officer of the Village of Oak Park to the best of my ability.”

    City police isn’t the mayor personal army

      Dave, I agree with your comment 100%, however it’s difficult to get a police force to follow such rules when the former president of the United States wouldn’t.

    This is the end of the age of unaccountability with Black women leaders. Check out the history of Black women in Congress, state houses and mayors. They are the most dishonest corrupt and vindictive leaders in history. They get away with everything from extortion to murder – and nothing happens. There’s no national discussion – even though it is destroying our nation – from the local towns to the White House. I encourage all to see how dishonest Black women cravenly use the traditional and honest image of Black women activists (like Rosa Parks) and use it to deceive the world. Remember when Condoleezza Rice gas-lit the Congress when they asked her why she didn’t do anything when warned that terrorists were planning on flying jets into the world trade towers. We’re seeing this mayor milk the image of the Black woman – for all its worth. She is pure evil – and this mayor needs to be removed from power immediately. Nobody in their right mind would visit this Illinois community.

    Jay, you make great points. I never knew about the Condoleeza Rice “incident” and always felt that she was on the up and up.. Take a look at Fani Willis, Leticia James, and Cori Bush to further validate your claims.

    There is an old saying….”.Some people are alive because it is against the law to kill them!” She is going to piss off the wrong people and there will be hell to pay! If this bitch was mayor of my town, she’d last a day at best. These blacks wonder why the whites do not want then in their neighborhoods, and Henyard is a prime reason why..

    Turns out Tiffany Henyard has a long sorted criminal background and has never changed her ways. She never would have been elected if people knew about her criminal past. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. In spite of making over $300,000 a year plus extraordinary benefits, it’s never enough for this corrupt politician, who duped the voters and has failed to deliver. She lives like a queen while the voters get nothing.

    Considering how few black women achieve positions of power, there sure are a whole lot of them who can’t handle the power given to them. There’s a huge percentage of black women who are afglicted with Black Queen Syndrome. They are corrupt dishonest and use their power to settle personal scores, often hurting other people of color. All of them cry racism when they are geld accountable. Maybe bla k women need to learn how to handle power before expecting us to give it yo them
