- Mayor Rahm Emanuel has decided to cut short his family vacation to Cuba after a 19-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman were shot and killed by police after officers responded to a domestic disturbance on the West Side on Saturday.
“While Mayor Emanuel has been in constant contact with his staff and Interim Superintendent Escalante, he is cutting his family trip short so that he can continue the ongoing work of restoring accountability and trust in the Chicago Police Department. He will arrive back in Chicago on Tuesday afternoon,” Emanuel spokeswoman Kelley Quinn said Monday.
The mayor has been in Cuba with his family for their annual holiday vacation.
As someone pointed out, it's kind of ironic that Rahm always vacations outside of the US, denying employment opportunities to American workers. But then, Rahm has always been one to preach one line while doing something completely the other direction.
