Hundreds Protest on Michigan Avenue on Black Friday

Hundreds lined Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago on Black Friday morning starting at 11:00 AM to protest their outrage over an officer's killing of teenager Laquan McDonald.

CBS Chicago is reporting the protesters are trying to shut down Michigan Avenue. 

This area is also called Chicago's "Magnificent Mile," ending in the city's Gold Coast neighborhood.

The protesters want Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy to resign. 

"Police believe they can kill our kids with no reprocussions," said one protester to CBS Chicago. 

The protests were organized by collective of grassroots organizations, according to protesters.
