State Atty election March, need have rally for Kim Foxx, can just ask Anita

Prayer vigil today for child that has been dead over year? Makes sense.
Carol Marin has been the one call the Justice department and having Obama get involved.
Kill and cover-up culture the City, someone needs take notice all the editorial out there
talking about the history, culture cover-up FOP and CPD.
All the thousands people out there protesting, what are you going during this upcoming
election? You need something, instead vigil for kid that has been dead over year,
host fundraiser, get out there and register vote, endorse Kim Foxx.
Poll question: did the protests take bit off retailers black Friday?
Why isn local media going after this more, the only reporters that after the story are ones
like Charles Thomas, Dorothy Tucker goes the extra mile get the answers. Jay Levine
excellent job his reporting. not really their reporting, the anchors that need deliver
the story better.
Changing the culture the Chicago Police Department.
The black caucus voting for the settlement out asking questions viewing the video.
When the black caucus, black legislators, black leaders, the 100 project going come out
endorse change? Instead saying DEMAND Anita Alvarez resign, how about talk
about endorsing Kim Foxx.

Garry McCarthy out Chicago Police Department superintendent
Chicago Tribune
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy out after coming under widespread criticism for his handling high
profile shooting that eventually led white officer being charged with the first degree murder black teenager
shot times Southwest Side street last year, sources told the Tribune Tuesday.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans make the announcement a.m. news conference where hell talk about task
force hes formed make recommendations police accountability, one the sources said. 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, McCarthy was the radio talking about the Laquan McDonald shooting and praising the mayors
task force plan.
How little busy and little bit stressed out, but staying the course, McCarthy said when asked how was
doing WGN 720s Steve Cochran.
For four and half years, Emanuel had stood McCarthy through various rocky patches, including major spike
homicides and number high profile murders and shootings young children caught the gang crossfire
Chicagos most violent neighborhoods. Then came the intense criticism how the two handled the police shooting year old McDonald. After Cook County prosecutors charged Van Dyke with first degree murder week ago, federal
prosecutors disclosed that their probe the fatal shooting, which was announced April, remains active and
ongoing.
Officer Jason Van Dyke shot McDonald along stretch Pulaski Road near 41st Street October 2014. For much the
last year, Emanuel and his lawyers fought court keep police dashboard camera the shooting under wraps,
arguing that releasing publicly could interfere with states attorney and federal investigations into the shooting.
But when Cook County judges ruling forced Emanuel release the video the public last week, the fallout for
McCarthy and Emanuel was sharp and immediate. Protesters took the streets chanting, shots!, and blocked entry Magnificent Mile stores one the busiest shopping days the year Friday. Black aldermen called for
McCarthy fired. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle urged Emanuel the same. Some Latino
aldermen followed suit, did newspaper editorial writers, television commentators, columnists and activists from
around the country.
The more than week long sustained protests and public backlash both Chicago and across the country
contributed McCarthys ouster.
With comes the departure Emanuels only police superintendent since took office May 2011. McCarthys tour
atop the department was longer than typical for the pressure cooker job running one the nations largest, and
most controversial, police departments. hiring McCarthy, Emanuel sought credible voice, superintendent who came Chicago after stints top
commander New York City and the chief Newark, N.J. where built career using combination cutting
edge statistical trends and intelligence knock back violent crime. Never hesitant talk tough about gangs guns
front microphone, McCarthy was the face the police department, often taking pressure off the mayor address
crime issues.
But the McDonald shooting exposed perceived weakness that Emanuel and McCarthy had not done enough
institute meaningful reforms police department long known for culture corruption, torture, wrongful
convictions and lax discipline. the mayor and McCarthy both prepared for the fallout hundreds thousands people watching the video Van
Dyke repeatedly shooting McDonald, both sought portray the incident the case bad apple that did not reflect
more systemic problems the department.
But for many Chicagoans, the story McDonalds death held all too familiar set circumstances: City Hall initially
casts the incident act police self defense only for the facts bear out different story later.
Immediately after the shooting last October, Chicago police union spokesman said that McDonald had lunged
officers before was killed. And official statement the next day, Chicago police said McDonald refused comply
with orders drop the knife and continued approach the officers. The video, however, showed McDonald walking
down the street, away from officers Van Dyke opened fire.
With that video airing news telecasts across the country and online around the world, McCarthy and Emanuels one
bad apple narrative Van Dykes actions didnt square with Chicagos sordid police history that once again was back
the national spotlight. Serving the backdrop: decades worth police torture and wrongful conviction cases,
corruption and ineffectual oversight shootings and other excessive force actions. Time and again, the department had
quickly cleared officers allegations, only have civil litigation later reveal video and other evidence that painted
much darker picture police misconduct. took Emanuel more than week after Van Dyke was charged with murder publicly address the notion, appointing
task force make recommendations approve police accountability. was the type announcement many
politicians make when faced with crisis buy time and create breathing room.
But wasnt enough spare McCarthy from losing his job, one that made him household name Chicago.
McCarthys familiar New York accent, flat top hair cut and thick mustache quickly made him well known the city,
particularly after spearheaded City Halls response the 2012 NATO summit that brought scores international
leaders, and days large scale protests, Chicago. protesters had violent clashes with police the streets, McCarthy could seen, standing the back the line
his white shirt and blue cap running the show. the time, McCarthy had struggled with criticism from within the
department that hed brought arrogant New York knows best attitude and was too cozy with Emanuel, but his
decision visible the ground helped his standing with the rank and file.
Its where supposed be, McCarthy said the time. And have great reverence for officers. interact with them
very easily. You cant fake it. You either are you arent. very comfortable that role.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy out after coming under widespread criticism for his handling high
profile shooting that eventually led white officer being charged with the first degree murder black teenager
shot times Southwest Side street last year, sources told the Tribune Tuesday.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans make the announcement a.m. news conference where hell talk about task
force hes formed make recommendations police accountability, one the sources said. 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, McCarthy was the radio talking about the Laquan McDonald shooting and praising the mayors
task force plan.
How little busy and little bit stressed out, but staying the course, McCarthy said when asked how was
doing WGN 720s Steve Cochran.
For four and half years, Emanuel had stood McCarthy through various rocky patches, including major spike
homicides and number high profile murders and shootings young children caught the gang crossfire
Chicagos most violent neighborhoods. Then came the intense criticism how the two handled the police shooting year old McDonald. After Cook County prosecutors charged Van Dyke with first degree murder week ago, federal
prosecutors disclosed that their probe the fatal shooting, which was announced April, remains active and
ongoing.
Officer Jason Van Dyke shot McDonald along stretch Pulaski Road near 41st Street October 2014. For much the
last year, Emanuel and his lawyers fought court keep police dashboard camera the shooting under wraps,
arguing that releasing publicly could interfere with states attorney and federal investigations into the shooting.
But when Cook County judges ruling forced Emanuel release the video the public last week, the fallout for
McCarthy and Emanuel was sharp and immediate. Protesters took the streets chanting, shots!, and blocked entry Magnificent Mile stores one the busiest shopping days the year Friday. Black aldermen called for
McCarthy fired. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle urged Emanuel the same. Some Latino
aldermen followed suit, did newspaper editorial writers, television commentators, columnists and activists from
around the country.
The more than week long sustained protests and public backlash both Chicago and across the country
contributed McCarthys ouster.
With comes the departure Emanuels only police superintendent since took office May 2011. McCarthys tour
atop the department was longer than typical for the pressure cooker job running one the nations largest, and
most controversial, police departments. hiring McCarthy, Emanuel sought credible voice, superintendent who came Chicago after stints top
commander New York City and the chief Newark, N.J. where built career using combination cutting
edge statistical trends and intelligence knock back violent crime. Never hesitant talk tough about gangs guns
front microphone, McCarthy was the face the police department, often taking pressure off the mayor address
crime issues.
But the McDonald shooting exposed perceived weakness that Emanuel and McCarthy had not done enough
institute meaningful reforms police department long known for culture corruption, torture, wrongful
convictions and lax discipline. the mayor and McCarthy both prepared for the fallout hundreds thousands people watching the video Van
Dyke repeatedly shooting McDonald, both sought portray the incident the case bad apple that did not reflect
more systemic problems the department.
But for many Chicagoans, the story McDonalds death held all too familiar set circumstances: City Hall initially
casts the incident act police self defense only for the facts bear out different story later.
Immediately after the shooting last October, Chicago police union spokesman said that McDonald had lunged
officers before was killed. And official statement the next day, Chicago police said McDonald refused comply
with orders drop the knife and continued approach the officers. The video, however, showed McDonald walking
down the street, away from officers Van Dyke opened fire.
With that video airing news telecasts across the country and online around the world, McCarthy and Emanuels one
bad apple narrative Van Dykes actions didnt square with Chicagos sordid police history that once again was back
the national spotlight. Serving the backdrop: decades worth police torture and wrongful conviction cases,
corruption and ineffectual oversight shootings and other excessive force actions. Time and again, the department had
quickly cleared officers allegations, only have civil litigation later reveal video and other evidence that painted
much darker picture police misconduct. took Emanuel more than week after Van Dyke was charged with murder publicly address the notion, appointing
task force make recommendations approve police accountability. was the type announcement many
politicians make when faced with crisis buy time and create breathing room.
But wasnt enough spare McCarthy from losing his job, one that made him household name Chicago.
McCarthys familiar New York accent, flat top hair cut and thick mustache quickly made him well known the city,
particularly after spearheaded City Halls response the 2012 NATO summit that brought scores international
leaders, and days large scale protests, Chicago. protesters had violent clashes with police the streets, McCarthy could seen, standing the back the line
his white shirt and blue cap running the show. the time, McCarthy had struggled with criticism from within the
department that hed brought
