A group of about 75 demonstrators had gathered peacefully during a press conference with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy. “I understand people will be upset and want to protest when they see this video,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told reporters during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.
Mayor Emanuel cited the McDonald family, “They have asked for calm, and for those who do protest to do so peacefully.”
“It is fine to be passionate, but it is essential to remain peaceful,” Emanuel added.

Protesters circled the intersection at Roosevelt and Halsted after the official release, chanting protests of “16 shots! 16 shots!” and “they left him dead.”
Demonstrators were angry that it took a year for police and prosecutors to file charges against Van Dyke.
