For John, BLUF: Mayor Rahm Emanuel (Dead Fish) is an arrogant person who does damage to democracy. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the Instapundit Blog Site, Law Professor Glenn Reynolds says:
DEMOCRATS IN DISARRAY: Emanuel responds to broadside from Jesse Jackson Sr. “Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday vehemently denied that he sat on the Laquan McDonald shooting video until he was safely re-elected after the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. accused the mayor of a cover-up in his most blistering attack on the mayor to date.”The shooting of Laquan McDonald? A Policeman arrived on the scene and pumped 16 bullets into young Mr Laquan McDonald, who was armed with a three inch blade knife and walking away. This was almost two years ago.
Let us be frank. Laquan McDonald was a punk. On the other hand, he was still a human being and what happened to him was flat out wrong.♠
Covering up how it happen, by the City of Chicago, only made it worse.
