HEY, HEY, HO, HO, EMANUEL HAS GOT TO GO!

The Chicago Mayor Has Sparked City-Wide Protests In The Wake Of A Cover Up Of Police Brutality

As Late As Yesterday Evening, Protests Continued In Chicago, Calling For The Resignation Of Emanuel. "Another demonstration unfolded during evening rush hour in the city's downtown. About 500 people marched from City Hall to Millennium Park, at times stopping traffic and making sharp, unexpected turns that forced police to scramble to catch up. The march was one of the largest in Chicago since the release of the video. Protesters held signs demanding the resignation of Emanuel and Cook County State Attorney Anita Alvarez and for an overhaul of Chicago's police board. At times, they chanted '16 and a coverup!'" (Mary Wisniewski and Justin Madden, "Hundreds March In Chicago A Day After Mayor's Apology Speech," Reuters, 12/10/15)

Following The Shooting Of McDonald, Emanuel Said To The Chicago City Council That The Shooting "Happened On My Watch" And "I'm Sorry." " Two weeks after a video was released of a Chicago policeman shooting a black teenager 16 times, the mayor of Chicago on Wednesday apologized for it and took some measure of responsibility. 'I'm sorry' for the shooting of Laquan McDonald, which 'happened on my watch,' Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) told the full Chicago City Council in a rare speech." (Amber Phillips, "Rahm Emanuel Is In Deep, Deep Trouble," The Washington Post , 12/10/15)

  • Around 200 Protestors Gathered Outside Council Chambers During Emanuel's Speech. " About 200 protesters gathered outside council chambers during Emanuel's special address to the city council and demanded to be let inside. They said one mayoral speech can't fix decades of police corruption that led to 17-year-old McDonald's death at the hands of officer Jason Van Dyke. At one point, a fight broke out." (Protestors Call For Mayor Emanuel's Resignation In Citywide Walkout," NBC Chicago , 12/9/15)

Protesters Called Emanuel's Remarks "Crocodile Tears," And Called For The Resignation Of Emanuel And His Chicago Leadership Team. "But the reaction on the street was a very different story. Emanuel cried 'crocodile tears,' one protester said. The only people who believe it will be his 'lap-dog city council,' another said, according to the Tribune. They carried signs calling on Emanuel and his leadership team to resign." (Amber Phillips, "Rahm Emanuel Is In Deep, Deep Trouble," The Washington Post , 12/10/15)
