At-Large Peoria City Council Woman Beth Akeson publicly addressed her recent controversial tweets. Akeson tweeted she would not support the Black Lives Matter movement because of its divisiveness and also that those “ill-equipped” should not have children to reduce crime. But Akeson's apology and the rest of her statement wasn't enough for some. Peoria Public Radio's Tanya Koonce reports:
The Peoria City Hall meeting room where Akeson addressed the matter was standing-room-only.
