Emanuel heck­led at UCLA

Chicago Sun-Times - - METROBEAT -

A small group of pro­test­ers in­ter­rupted a talk by Mayor Rahm Emanuel at UCLA on Mon­day, demon­strat­ing against plans for a $ 95mil­lion po­lice academy cam­pus on the West Side.

Ka­reem Youssef, who or­ga­nized the protest with other UCLA stu­dents from Chicago, said the stu­dents were protesting both the mayor’s sup­port for the po­lice train­ing fa­cil­ity and UCLA’s de­ci­sion to host Emanuel.

The heck­lers shouted “16 shots and a cover up” — a ref­er­ence to the shoot­ing of Laquan McDon­ald.

“I didn’t re­al­ize there were these many di­rect flights,” Emanuel said. He went on to say that the top­ics of con­cern raised by the pro­test­ers are se­ri­ous. Three peo­ple un­af­fil­i­ated with the uni­ver­sity were ar­rested, ac­cord­ing to a UCLA rep­re­sen­ta­tive. Pete Grieve
