CHICAGO (Reuters) – Thousands of people marched on Chicago’s most prestigious shopping street on Friday, disrupting business on one of the busiest U.S. retail days, to protest the shooting death of a black teenager by a white policeman and the city’s handling of the case.
About 2,000 protesters, some holding signs reading “Stop Police Terror” gathered in a cold drizzle for the march on Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile,” which closed the major city street of Michigan Avenue to traffic on the traditional “Black Friday” shopping day after the Thanksgiving holiday,
Organizers said the rally, led by activist-politician the Rev. Jesse Jackson and several state elected officials, was a show of outrage over the October 2014 death of Laquan McDonald, 17, and what they see as racial bias in U.S. policing.
Well how about
An ‘unarmed’ white teen was shot dead by police. His family asks: Where is the outrage?
Zachary Hammond was on a first date when he was fatally shot by a police officer in his car during a drug bust in South Carolina
At the time the 19-year-old was shot and killed, his date, Tori Morton, was eating an ice cream cone
Morton, 23, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana — all 10 grams of it — which, according to police, was the reason undercover agents set up the drug buy.
so this white kid is shot dead by a black officer back in Aug but he is white so what !
and then there is there is little outrage after a black officer shot and killed an unarmed white young man.
The incident occurred in Salt Lake City on Aug. 11 outside of a local 7-eleven where a police officer approached 20-year-old Dillon Taylor. Unlike the incident in Ferguson, a lapel cam on the officer caught the entire sequence of events and has yet to be released.
so you see this happens often to all races so to say it is cops targeting blacks is less than true because this is happening to all of us and it is happening from bad apples when the cop is wrong ! often the cop shoots a thug and it is portraded as anoth cop gone racist.
