Some state lawmakers are calling for police reform. The Illinois General Assembly doesn’t meet again until November, but some lawmakers want to convene a special session to deal with the issue. One bill introduced by Representative Kam Buckner would require a review of investigations of officer-involved deaths by an appointed special prosecutor. Governor J.B. Pritzker said last week he was more in favor of independent investigations of officers.
