The purpose of the meetings were to provide residents the opportunity to speak or submit written comments on improving the accountability, oversight and training of Chicago’s police officers.
We sent a number of people to this fourth meeting, at Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth Ave.
One text documenter: see the notes here. These notes were later edited and improved by another documenter, working from the video.
Two videographers (Community TV Network, video here)
One photographer (Angel Rodriguez, images here). The meeting was conducted by the Chicago Police Accountability Task Force, and they used a portion of the video we created to prepare and post on their Youtube page as well.

When a public meeting is ended early
About 49 minutes into the meeting, some people approached the stage (read a complete account here on our Medium post)
The moderator moved from the lectern to address the crowd.
Task force members and protesters then left the stage and were replaced by police officers.
Many protesters brought in signs that were small enough to not be detected upon entering (signs were not allowed in the meeting).
After the meeting broke up, a resident sat by the lectern.
The protesters continued their work outside.
