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.
It’s not enough that Emanuel proved what a slimeball he is when he worked for Obama – now he’s ruining the city of Chicago:
Chicago residents and activists have taken to social media following the release of the dash-cam video showing the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, and brought an empty casket to City Hall to call for the resignation of the disasterous Mayor Rahm Emmanuel. How does it feel Rahm, for even the #BlackLivesMatter crowd to be against you? That’s pretty rotten even for Chicago and a former member of Obama, Inc.
It’s also being reported that police went into a Burger King and deleted 86 minutes of footage from their security cameras that showed them shooting Laquan McDonald. No one respects uniformed police, first responders or anyone in the service who wears the uniform – but bad cops are bad cops and even though they’re few and far between, this is an example where justice truly is needed.
Obama is all over the news cycle attacking 2nd Amendment rights on The Planned Parenthood shooting, but is he in Chicago condemning this? No, because his butt-buddy Rahm is supposedly in charge.
This week’s release of police dash cam video of the killing shows McDonald, 17, (left) being shot on a city street last year by Officer Jason Van Dyke, (right) who has now been charged with first-degree murder. The most Obama could muster up was that he was “deeply disturbed” by the footage. Wow! Jumped right on that one.
He and Rahm need to go and never be involved in politics again.
Not surprising for a kid who’s father – Benjamin Emanuel, a Chicago pediatrician – was a member of militant terror group that bombed hotels, massacred villagers and committed many other acts of violence. After news of his son’s appointment to the Obama administration was announced Emanuel the elder said this: “Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn’t he be? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to clean the floors of the White House.”
The hashtag #ResignRahm was trending on Twitter in Chicago. More than a week before the video was released to the public, Emanuel said it would be premature to release it due to the ongoing FBI investigation.
Black Friday became a day where the coalition of Black Lives Matter, the Revolutionary Communist Party, Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH group and grassroots black activists took and held ten blocks of a high-end retail district on the busiest shopping day of the year. They learned that this is a thing they can do and that nobody at a city, state or federal level will stop them.
Certainly not Mayor Rahm..
