Mayor Vows Change After New Chicago Shootings
He’s had enough. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who’s come under fire for his conduct in the case of a videotaped police shooting of a Black teenager, says “the public deserves answers” over the death this weekend of two Chicago residents who were shot by police. Grandmother Bettie Jones, 55, an activist, was reportedly shot by mistake, while police say Quintonio LeGrier, 19, was “combative” before he was killed. Emanuel’s demanding “real changes” in the way police operate, while many activists — who are protesting at City Hall today — are still demanding Emanuel’s resignation.
