Flashback: Unrest on Division Street: A 1966 police shooting was a tipping point for Puerto Rican Chicagoans.

As the unrest ended on June 14, Officer Munyon asked to be transferred to another district. His partner, Officer Raymond Howard, also was reassigned. Asked why, Superintendent Wilson replied: “Because he is unlucky. So if he’s going to be unlucky, let him be unlucky in a district where we haven’t racial tensions.” Howard resigned instead.
