Protests Over Laquan McDonald Police Shooting Cause Traffic Chaos in Chicago

Fox News found a bombshell CNN report that details how some protesters protesting against the police shooting of Laquan McDonald refused to move from the scene of the incident.

Back in 2014, the Chicago Police Department’s Independent Police Review Authority announced that officers were justified in shooting and killing 17-year-old McDonald while trying to stop him for allegedly assaulting a police officer.

Now, CNN reveals video footage showing some protesters at the scene of the shooting — in which the teen was reportedly 15 at the time — refusing to move from the area where the shooting took place.

“Some of the protesters are still sitting in the street, some are still talking on their cellphones and some are just blocking the crosswalk where someone was shot,” CNN’s Tom Foreman said on air.

This followed an investigation by CNN that found a protester called out what he assumed was an officer from the Chicago Police Department as he spoke on the phone.

Other protesters captured by CNN viewed the officer’s badge while talking.

In one video shot by Chicago photographer Suzy Martinez, a protester films the officer, shot by gun ricochet, as he spoke.

Despite the request of a 911 caller to move from the scene, about 100 protesters remained in the street throughout a daylong protest.
