Chicago shooting victims’ kin oppose nomination of Emanuel as envoy to Japan  

Asahi wrote that 28 members of the families of a 16-year-old African American boy who was shot dead by a police officer in 2016 in Chicago and a 25-year-old African American man who was also shot dead by a police officer in 2014 in the city released a statement on Thursday opposing the Biden administration’s plan to nominate former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as U.S. ambassador to Japan. Noting that the liberal wing of the Democratic Party has expressed strong opposition to the idea of appointing Emanuel to the post, the paper speculated that the statement could make the nomination even more uncertain.
