CHICAGO In a city troubled by allegations of police misuse of force, a Chicago police officer shot and killed a male college student and a mother of five, both black, early on Saturday morning, and police shot another person at a separate location hours later. The police department of the nation's third-largest city is under a federal civil rights investigation for its use of deadly force and officer discipline. A recently released video of the shooting death of a black teenager by a white officer in 2014 has sparked protests, with activists calling for Mayor Rahm Emanuel's resignation. #India #Business #Syria #Russia #Chicago #Crime #crisis

CHICAGO Chicago police used excessive force on a black man who died after he was dragged by handcuffs out of his cell and down a hallway three years ago, a federal judge ruled on Monday. The ruling came as Chicago police and Mayor Rahm Emanuel face intense scrutiny over the police department's use of force. Protesters have called for Emanuel's resignation since last month's release of a video showing a white police officer shooting to death a black teen. #Japan #Middle East #Europe #Chicago #markets

Chicago student arrested for gun threat linked to McDonald shooting - report| Reuters

CHICAGO A University of Illinois at Chicago student arrested in connection with an online threat that closed the University of Chicago on Monday had threatened to kill 16 white male students or staff in retaliation for the shooting last year of black teenager Laquan McDonald, the Chicago Tribune reported. The UIC student was only identified by UIC officials as living off campus, and a spokesman for the FBI would only say an arrest has been made and charges are pending. The Tribune, citing a police report it obtained, said a New York resident called the FBI to report a comment he saw on the website www.worldstarhiphop.com, posted in response to a video clip from the 1995 movie "Panther." The commenter threatened to shoot and kill students, staff and police on the University of Chicago's campus at 10 a.m #Syria #Europe #Chicago #Turkey #Education
