CHICAGO Michael Grabner Rangers Jersey , Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- More than 1,000 protesters took to Chicago's most bustling shopping street on Friday, disrupting business on Americans' busiest shopping day of the year, to protest the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white policeman.
The protesters blocked retail stores on the "Magnificent Mile" by locking arms to form a human chain to prevent shoppers from entering the stores on the traditional Black Friday shopping day.
The protesters demanded justice for 17-year-old black teen Laquan McDonald who was shot 16 times to death in October 2014.
Tensions flared up in the Midwestern city after officials released a graphic video on Tuesday showing Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke shot McDonald 16 times after the teenager walked away from him.
Earlier Tuesday Kevin Shattenkirk Rangers Jersey , Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder and denied bail until a second hearing on Monday in a case that took prosecutor 13 months to announce the charges.
Protestors counted up from zero to 16, and chanted "sixteen shots" to voice anger as Dyke reloaded and fired his gun sixteen times at the teen.
When the protesters marched along Michigan Avenue, they shouted "Stop the cover-up, 16 shots" in a show of the outrage that it took so long to charge Van Dyke when there was clear evidence he was never threatened by McDonald.
Many protesters implied that Chicago officials were motivated to withhold the release of the video until after the mayoral election.
A Facebook page posted by march organizers said "the release of the Laquan McDonald video once again highlights the lack of value of Black lives in the minds of many who are charged with serving and protecting."
Organizers called for demilitarization of the Chicago Police Department Chris Kreider Rangers Jersey , appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the potential cover-up, and the resignation and firing of all involved in misconduct concerning the case.
Valerie Fuller told Xinhua that she decided to join the protests because of her personal experiences.
"I am the parent of a 15-year-old who is also the ward of the state. That could have been him. He's a really good kid, never been in trouble, really good kid. That could have been Laquan Marc Staal Rangers Jersey ," she said.
Nordstrom, a big shopping department store on the street, was among the stores blocked. Security guards persuaded shoppers to use an unobvious back door to get in.
Monica Xue, a Chinese tourist visiting from California Kevin Hayes Rangers Jersey , told Xinhua that she didn't mind the disruptions. "In the U.S., racial discrimination has led to social and financial inequality."
"I believe that protests, peaceful protests, is the right way to fix that J.T. Miller Rangers Jersey , and I also hope that government authorities will exert more effort to solve this problem because the problem won't be solved if the U.S. doesn't adopt legislation to enact actual changes following the protest."
Alice Xia was eating at Michael Jordan Steakhouse on North Michigan Avenue when protesters interrupted her meal. "I think the protest is effective, and very important, but they shouldn't disturb other people."
