Protestors are marching the streets of Chicago in demand that Mayor Rahm Emanuel resigns.

Downtown Chicago streets are flooded with people calling for his resignation and an investigation into his administration. Protests began after he publicly apologized for Laquan McDonald’s death due to police brutality.

During his address this morning to the Chicago city council, he vowed to fix police practices in Chicago. According to the Chicago Tribune, Over 200 people have gathered at City Hall saying that “one speech can’t fix decades of police corruption of the kind that culminated in 17-year-old Laquan McDonald’s death.”

Previous resignations announced by Mayor Rahm Emanuel were of Gary McCarthy, superintendent of Chicago Police Department, and Scott Ando, the head of the Independent Police Review Authority.
