Demonstrators march across Washington Street to support a Citizens Police Accountability Council to provide civilian oversight of the Chicago Police Department in Chicago, Illinois on July 11, 2016.  The demonstration attracted a larger crowd on the heels of last week's racially charged police shootings captured on video of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in the St. Paul suburb of Falcon Heights, Minnesota which was followed by a mass shooting of five police officers by Afghan War veteran Micah Johnson who supported radical and violent black nationalist ideology.
