(CNN)Chicago is once again seething with rage after a deadly shooting by a police officer, the latest in a spate of violence that has strained relations between the community and law enforcement.

.

Hundreds of residents took to the streets Tuesday night, one day after authorities identified the person shot and killed by police as 16-year-old Pierre Loury.

.

The turmoil on the streets came on the eve of a momentous day for the besieged police force:

.

– In a blistering report, a mayoral task force said police “have no regard for the sanctity of life when it comes to people of color” and have alienated blacks and Hispanics with the use of force and a longstanding code of silence.

.

Task force chairwoman Lori Lightfoot said the report was “not an indictment of the entire police department” but stressed that “a culture of accountability … is fundamentally lacking.”

.

– The City Council approved more than $6 million in settlements stemming from the deaths of two men in police custody.

.

– Aldermen confirmed Chicago Police veteran Eddie Johnson as superintendent in a city shaken by violent crime and deep-seated distrust of law enforcement.

.

On Tuesday night, two protesters were taken into custody for blocking traffic, police spokesman Ron Gaines said.
They were among an estimated 200 to 300 demonstrators who came out in reaction to Monday night’s shooting.

A crisis of confidence

.

The Police Accountability Task Force, created by Mayor Rahm Emanuel in December, released its report Wednesday, a scathing rebuke accusing the department of institutional racism and describing its accountability system as broken.

.

“The community’s lack of trust in CPD is justified,” the report said.

.

“There is substantial evidence that people of color — particularly African-Americans — have had disproportionately negative experiences with the police over an extended period of time.

.

“There is also substantial evidence that these experiences continue today through enforcement and other practices that disproportionately affect and often show little respect for people of color.”

.

During the last eight years, 74% of people killed or injured by Chicago police officers were African-American, the report said.

.

The task force found that 72% of people stopped by Chicago police in 2014 were African-American, and 17% were Hispanic.
