Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Wednesday that Chicago police must be better trained to distinguish between when they can use a gun and when they should use a gun, after a series of shootings by officers sparked protests and complaints that police are too quick to fire their weapons.
The kids are woke. Students at an Urban Prep Academy chanted "16 shots" at Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was met with with protests during a "My Brother's Keeper" initiative event Wednesday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Protesters who have been calling for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's resignation also have another target: a much-criticized, quasi-independent agency that was created to investigate complaints against police officers but has rarely ruled against them.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel apologized for the 2014 shooting of a Black teenager Wednesday during a special City Council meeting that he called to discuss a police abuse scandal at the center of the biggest crisis of his administration, and promised "complete and total" reform to restore trust in the police.
