Chicago Cops Shoot 55 Year Old Grandmother; Meanwhile Rahm Emanuel, Being a YOLO Mayor like the YOLO President Obama, is Recreating in Cuba

Ed Driscoll highlights this at Instapundit, reporting that noted racial healer Al Sharpton has observed that he "can't see how [Emmanuel] can continue to govern."

Why start now?

Jim Geraghty calls this "the perfect Obama-era scandal," featuring more black anger about a police chief and once again a wholly Democrat controlled city government which somehow manages to elude all responsibility.

And of course, the guy at the top is vacationing, of course.

Chicago is the City of the Future, and I don't mean that in a good way. I mean that as a dire warning.

Two more shooting deaths by Chicago police are prompting swift action by the Mayor Rahm Emanuel, as well as by residents who want the mayor to go.

The latest upheaval came after Chicago police fatally shot Bettie Jones, 55, and Quintonio LeGrier, 19, while answering a call about a domestic disturbance.

Jones, a mother of five, shouldn't have been shot, police say. She was "accidentally struck and tragically killed" by an officer.

Many question the shooting of LeGrier, who police say was combative. LeGrier's family said he suffered from mental illness, CNN affiliate WLS reported.

It is now updated that Rahm Emmanuel will, wonder of wonders, cut his vacation short to return to the city he mismanages in his actual job, which makes him, I suppose, more of a leader than golf-crazy Obama.
