The tragedy occurred while the young police officer was conducting a traffic stop during the weekend. She ended up being shot to death, making her the first female police officer that has died on duty in Chicago in the last 33 years.
Her fellow officers from the unit wanted to commemorate her, pay her a respectful tribute for her service – with an honor guard, marching to the sound of bagpipes for the final farewell.
But mayor Lori Lightfoot stood on the wrong side, backing up Eric Carter, the Deputy Police Superintendent’s decision – that they don’t have 20 minutes “for that s–t.”
“We don’t have 20 minutes for this s–t, we’re not waiting on the bagpipes. Go ahead and get the vehicle inside. Take it all the way inside. Do not stop!” Carter said according to transmissions.
Loathsome Mayor Lori Lightfoot Supports Decision to CANCEL Bagpipes and Honor Guard for Slain Chicago Police Officer Ella French
CPD Deputy Superintendent made the call: said we don't have time "for that sh-t"

According to the report published by the Gateway Pundit,
“Mayor Lightfoot defended Carter as she angrily snapped at reporters and called them liars in a press conference on Thursday. The abhorrent mayor said that the superintendent “made the right call” and supports his decision to rush the funeral procession and not allow the traditions to occur.
Just like everything else with these radicals nowadays, Covid was the excuse she pointed to while crying victim.
“The reporting on that is just not true. It’s not true. With Covid protocols, the coroner has made a lot of new restrictions on what can and can not happen at the morgue is my understanding.
Eric Carter made the right call, I support what he did and I’m horrified that at this moment people are trying to savage him for whatever agenda or purpose.”
The Covid-19 cudgel is the s–t nobody has time for. This is the same mayor who just two weeks ago green-lighted Lollapalooza to take place in her city, which she attended maskless with a crowd of over 385,000.
Lightfoot also claimed that there was no “official” honor guard available and instead disrespected the officers who were gathered and ready to pay their respects, calling them an unorganized group that wanted to “hijack the procession.”
“There was no official honor guard that night. There was, let me choose my words very carefully, a well-meaning but not well-organized group that wanted to hijack the procession. Which would have meant that the family would have been exponentially delayed in getting to the morgue.”
Not only are her excuses complete BS, they’re also outright lies. The Cook County medical examiner’s office said in a statement that rules for processions have not changed since the pandemic began and there have been no additional restrictions put in place.
“Protocols for processions at the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office have not changed since the pandemic began. First responders have always gathered in the parking lot and dock to pay respects to fallen police officers and firefighters.
Early Sunday morning, police officers gathered in the parking and dock area as usual and bagpipers accompanied the body of Officer Ella French through the parking lot to the dock. At no time did personnel from the Medical Examiner’s Office try to impede officers or bagpipers.”
Just WOW! Can we become a bigger disgrace?
