VIDEO: Voters split on controversial debate question to Garcia

By Amina Ismail

In last week’s debate, the moderator questioned candidate Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia about how he would deal with violence as his own son was once connected to the Chicago gang scene. The question was met with boos from the audience and Mayor Rahm Emanuel came to his opponents defense noting that the line of questioning was unfair.

The issue of whether the question should have been asked in the first place has Chicagoans split.
