Trailing in the polls with Primary Election Day rapidly approaching, Democratic Illinois Senate candidate Andrea Zopp realizes she needs to do something that will grab voters’ attention. A couple weeks ago, Zopp released an ad that started with gunshots, police sirens, and a tearful speech from President Obama. Now, she’s upped the ante. Zopp’s newest ad begins with footage of Walter Scott, Philip Coleman, and Laquan McDonald. Scott, Coleman, and McDonald were all killed by police officers or while in police custody, Coleman and McDonald in Chicago. Many viewers – particularly in the Chicago, St. Louis, and Springfield media markets where the ad is being shown – will recognize the names and clips. But Zopp warns that this is an issue that affects more than just the African American community, “You don’t have to be black to know our criminal justice system is broken.” More than just express verbal support, Zopp touts a record of action. She establishes her credibility as a former prosecutor, and also informs viewers that her husband was in law enforcement. As a prosecutor, Zopp claims to have “indicted a police officer who murdered a homeless man.” Onscreen text cites a 1995 Chicago Tribune article “police officer…charged in…fatal shooting.” Zopp borrows the courtroom-like footage from the previous ad, and ads a courtroom sketch as well.
