News from the Illinois Valley

Protesters briefly blocked the entrance to a Michigan Avenue Apple Store, chanting, “No justice, no profits.” Police on bikes slipped behind the protesters to secure the store’s entrance. Most shoppers on the street Thursday seemed undeterred, some walking through groups of protesters.

The release last month of police dashcam video showing the shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald has led to weeks of sporadic protests. Organizers were hoping the Christmas Eve demonstration will be a repeat of another Michigan Avenue demonstration in which a few hundred people disrupted shopping there on Black Friday.

Officer Jason Van Dyke has been charged with first-degree murder in McDonald’s death.
