Posted on the Green Party website on February 2nd, 2016:
The Green Party of Chicago demands that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez resign from their offices. Both Emanuel and Alvarez betrayed the public trust by suppressing the video recordings showing the shocking execution of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke.
Emanuel sat on the video until forced to disclose it by court order, and Alvarez took no action to charge Van Dyke for 13 months — while Van Dyke continued to be employed by the City and Emanuel ran for re-election. Citizens of Chicago will no longer endure the corruption and lies emanating from the highest offices of the city. We deserve honest elected officials who protect and serve the public.
