apology today is a promise for police accountability, more video cameras, more training of officers and a new culture. emanuel says: "no citizen is a second class citizen in the city of chicago. if my children are treated one way, every child is treated the same way." the demonstrators have been very clear in their demands. they want the resignation of the state's attorney and of mayor rahm emanuel. there is no law on the books to unseat a mayor of the city of chicago, and emanuel has three-years to re- election. in chicago, mike tobin, fox news today... police officer william porter took the stand in the freddie gray murder trial in baltimore. prosecutors say porter should have called for a medic after gray said he was injured... but in court today ... porter said he thought gray was faking his injury. porter is one of six officers charged after gray died from spinal
