Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel addressing the City Council, taking blame for a cop killing a young man, and looking to change the police structure.

FOX's Jeff Monosso has more in Chicago:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he was sorry for the police shooting death of an armed black teen in 2014, which led to murder charges, the firing of the city's top cop, and now a Justice Department probe into police practices...

(Emanuel) "The only thing that stands between us and a better place is whether we have the collective will to admit to ourselves where we have fallen short and have the courage to do the hard, but necessary things that will take for us to move forward."

The Mayor while noting the city's gang and gun violence epidemic also vows to fix what he calls a mistrust between police and residents... Some of whom have taken to the streets in protest demanding the Mayor step down.
