CHICAGO -- Chicago residents at the South Shore Cultural Center took to the microphone in front of the Chicago Police Accountability Taskforce.

It was the second of four planned meetings.

The most important job of the Chicago Police Accountability Taskforce was to listen.

Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is serving as an adviser to the meetings.

Some elected officials were among those voicing their opinions including Ken Dunkin, Democrat, Rep. of Chicago.

Mayor Emanuel appointed the taskforce following public outrage over the city’s handling of the police shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

The taskforce is reviewing police oversight, accountability, and training.

But some say – they lack credibility.

The next public meeting is Feb. 23rd at Juarez Academy in Pilsen.

The taskforce will present recommendations to the mayor and the city council by the end of March.
