A Chicago police review agency that recommended eight officers involved in the botched 2019 raid of a social worker be suspended or fired is being harshly criticized for including the name of Officer Ella French, who was later shot dead during an August traffic stop.

The raid on Anjanette Young saw officers swoop in on her home only to later find they had busted the wrong address. 

Upon hearing of her death just over 16 months later, Young praised French’s conduct saying she was the only person who ‘treated her with dignity’. 

Mayor Lori Lightfoot, members of the City Council, the president of the city’s police officers’ union and a brother of the slain officer all decried what Lightfoot called the ‘height of tone-deafness’ to recommend that Officer French be suspended for three days. 

A spokesman for the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) explained that while the report on the raid of the home of Young was made public this week, it was completed in late April – months before French was killed. He said that a city ordinance prohibits the agency from redacting the information regarding French.
