Ahead of the incident, a round of protests against police brutality took place in Chicago, with more and more demonstrators demanding the resignation of Mayor Ram Emanuel and an investigation into his government.
Hundreds of people gathered on the streets of the city, claiming that the police were not protecting civilians, but killing them.
During the protests, a Chicago police chief was forced to resign, and the mayor set up a special police accountability working group to review police actions.
Carl dikes of the American Revolutionary Communist Party told RT that the latest incident was another case in which police crossed the border.
\"Said they met an armed man so they had to shoot . . . . . . A bystander!
It doesn\'t make sense, \"said dikes.
