CHICAGO – From protesters to some elected officials, reaction to Mayor Emanuel's plan for police reform can be summed up by some simply as too little, too late.

Many with whom WGN spoke said nothing short of the mayor's resignation will satisfy them.

But others, like Rep. Mary Flowers, say she appreciates his efforts but he and his interim superintendent John Escalante are not addressing the root of the problem -- institutional racism.

Reverend Jesse Jackson weighed in today as well, also calling for the mayor and Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez to step down.
