  • Roundtable On Police Brutality and Racial Profiling

    Angry protesters shouted at Chicago’s police superintendent yesterday as he announced that officers broke the rules in the shooting deaths of two unarmed African American civilians. In one of the shootings, an officer shot a 26-year old woman after the officer mistook the woman’s cell phone for a gun. In the other case, an officer fatally shot a Northwestern University football player after breaking the student’s car window with a wrench.
