Among them is 73-year-old Frank Chapman of Chicago, who says a video released Tuesday showing the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke confirms what activists have said for years about Chicago police brutality.

He says his organization, the Chicago Alliance Against Racism and Political Oppression, is pushing for an elected, civilian police accountability council.
