After Rahm's emotional speech this morning and apologizing for the Laquan McDonald disaster, protestors are out in large numbers calling for him to resign.

Twitter Feed

Some are claiming it's the largest protest they've seen. They are currently marching downtown and trying to shut down one interstate.

Will try to update with more info

Looks like it started with just a few hundred this morning and now they are saying thousands of protestors are on the streets: ABC News Protest Updates

It is always satisfying to see a monster turn on it's creators.

Poetic justice? Shadenfreude? Whatever it is, it feels good.

I don't get it, how Rahm end up on Chicago when he has a long trail when it comes to incompetence as a political figure.

This could turn into a nightmare for the left depending on how big these protests get.

I would be willing to stop by the local Depot and load up on a bunch to hand out.

If you don't like a politician, vote him out!

This constant deference to a mob is sickening.

Just came over the news, they are protesting businesses and basically preventing commerce.

So my question is, "Do Black Live really matter? Or is this nothing more than a facist anti capitalism group using Racism as an excuse?".

So much for getting rid of your Mayor, when your actions show otherwise!

I'm not a supporter of most BLM protests, but this protest is different.

This protest has less to do with the shooting itself and more to do with the city officials corruption.

If they can keep things peaceful while amassing numbers to call a corrupt politician to resign, more power to them.

Rahm is Obama's right hand man.

I wonder if these protesters will now vote republican.

Not likely even though its known democrats never plan to back up any of there political promises with actions when many of these protesters are sheep.

Well , it seems the Chicago Mafia created it's own Frankenstein, and he's awake and pissed off?

It's the Mayor they want!

Why piss off people and disrupt businesses?

If you read my first post I was all for it. Then? Instead of surrounding "City Hall" and getting as close to the domicile of the Mayor as they could, what do they do? Piss off businesses and people just like them that would like to shop without being confronted!

Nah, this isn't about police corruption from the mayor down, this is about anti capitalism and anarchy!

These people are being used.

It's almost amusing watching Liberal Progressive's babies eating their parents.
