About 200 protesters shut down a busy street in a wealthy area in Chicago expressing outrage over Chicago’s gun violence and calling for the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.  Chicago recently recorded its deadliest weekend of he year with 66 people shot and 12 murdered. Rahm Emanuel, acknowledged that there are too may criminals on the street when they should be in jail. He also said there are too many guns on the streets, which is ironic inasmuch as guns are tightly controlled in Chicago. -GEG
