2015-11-29 US: Rahm Emanuel Should Resign Now

2015-11-29 US: Rahm Emanuel Should Resign Now
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel oversaw the withholding from public view -- for more than a year -- of a video of a police murder of a teenager.
The police officer who shot 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times, continuing to shoot his motionless body on the ground, has now been indicted for first-degree murder.
The video was kept secret for 13 months, during which time Emanuel never corrected the blatant lies by the Chicago Police Department that maintained the victim had lunged at the police with a knife just before he was shot. The video shows this to have been a complete fabrication.
A mayor willing to cover for the murder of his constituent is no mayor at all.…
Demand Rahm Emanuel's resignation.
