State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) stirred up a storm when she went on a Detroit radio station July 19 to say that there are suspicions in the black community that Chicago Police are targeting black youth.

The controversy deepened when Davis refused to walk her statements back. Gas was applied to the fire Thursday when Bill O’Reilly took up the discussion on his Fox News show, The O’Reilly Factor.

O’Reilly went after Davis mainly because, he said, she didn’t step in to put an end to rumor. Davis’ defense continued to be that she wasn’t spreading rumor, but merely repeating what she hears on the streets from her constituents.

I didn’t say it, Bill. I repeated what members of my community have said to me, Davis said. It is crucially important that people realize that was not Monique Davis’s statement. Do I have say that? Davids asked when O’Reilly prompted her to refute such statements as falsehoods. Yeah, you do, O’Reilly shot back. Here’s why you have to say it, two reasons: Number one, you have credibility as an elected official, alight? And number two, people don’t know where you stand…That is destructive to the discourse. Chicago police as you know are not gunning down black children. You know that, right?
