Chicago police host “tweetalong” to show a night on the job

The Chicago and Baltimore Police Departments teamed up Thursday night and hosted a tweet-along...a virtual ride-along for people to get an inside look into a night on the job for a police officer. Many residents are pushing for Chicago and other departments to be more transparent. But online activists, including the hacking group Anonymous, used the tweetalong as an opportunity to criticize the police. Meanwhile, at last night’s Police Board meeting, a group of protesters continued to call for detective Dante Servin to be fired for the shooting death of an unarmed woman, Rekia Boyd. The meeting was shut down, after just 20 minutes. Anthony Guglielmi, communications director for the Chicago Police Department, joins us with more.(Flickr/Arvell Dorsey Jr.)
