Illinois Democrats Move To Impeach Rahm Emanuel

Naturally, Emanuel has gone out of his way to make amends to his enraged constituents, firing a senior Chicago PD official and launching a formal investigation into the department's practices, but it doesn't seem this will be enough to appease those angered by the death of Laquan McDonald. According to Breitbart:

“Chicago is in the midst of over two weeks of daily protests over the city’s response to the 2014 shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, shot 16 times by a now indicted Chicago police officer.

After the first full week of protests Mayor Emanuel tried to appease protesters by firing Chicago Police Department Superintendent Garry McCarthy and announcing a commission made up of experts and community leaders to find a replacement and address department practices.

Despite the move, Emanuel has continued to remain a focus of calls for his resignation, though. Only days after he fired McCarthy, for instance, both The New York Times and the nearby Milwaukee Journal Sentinel both called for the mayor to quit his post.

Many voices have also criticized Emanuel for the year-long delay in the release of the police dashcam video of the shooting saying that the delay was meant to smooth Emanuel’s re-election campaign.

The charge stung the mayor so badly that he had the Chicago Tribune post an op-ed under his name denying the charges.”
