He is a white male, a mayor, a lawyer and a former cop. What's not to hate?
He was caught on video, allegedly (clear as day), grabbing, dragging and then slamming an unarmed black protester to the ground during a George Floyd protest/riot on May 31st in Joliet, IL.
A second video, allegedly (not very clearly) appears to show a group of white cops holding someone down and punching him. He is not seen resisting, but it is very unclear why they are punching him in the first place if this in fact they guy that had just been attacked (allegedly) by the mayor.

This two tiered justice system is obviously not applying laws equally and they are doing it right out in the open.
This reminds me of the Ralph Northam situation where someone just has to decide whether or not to release the angry mob. The problem is that what is outlined, allegedly, in this Harper's article is that the snake is eating its own tail now.
I don't believe that this works and I do not believe that petitions work. For whom is this letter intended? Harper's Letter
