Update (11-24-15 6:45 PM PST) – PROTESTS ERUPT IN STREETS OF CHICAGO
Hundreds of citizens have already taken to the streets in response to the video of Laquan McDonald’s execution by police.
Many of them are upset that a second video which showed the shooting was deleted by police, and many feel that a cover-up was involved throughout the case, calling for officer higher in the chain of command to be terminated.
Riot police have descended in familiar fashion, and they already seem to be escalating tensions.
In one incident, they were seen initiating physical aggression on citizens who were peacefully crossing a bridge.
Protests are expected to begin in cities around the country as the video continues going viral, and police departments are on alert for more potential civil unrest.
