Rahm Emanuel’s comments were an attempt to calm tensions that flared in the city after the recent release of graphic dashcam video of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald being shot 16 times by a white officer. The October 2014 incident has led to a federal civil-rights probe into the Chicago police department’s use of force and sparked calls for Emanuel to step down.
