This incident rivals many of the recent rowdy town hall meetings held by members of Congress in August, 2009. This full-length version shows the entire press conference of Chicago Alderman Helen Shiller PLUS the full, subsequent chase by angry constituents. Shiller (Democrat, 46th Ward) was at a 2016 Chicago Olympics meeting at Truman College, along with residents of the Uptown neighborhood. While some of the 150 or so of her constituents were protesting the 2016 Olympics, most were there to protest Shiller for allegedly not taking enough action against the high rate of violent crime in her ward. The Olympics meeting was ho-hum and really not notable. Shiller's press conference, however, and the amazing scene afterwards of angry voters chasing her from the building eclipses the Olympics meeting.
