Justice Dept. Says Chicago PD Using Excessive Force

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 January 2017
According to a report released by the U.S. Department of Justice Friday, Chicago police routinely used excessive force, tolerated racially discriminatory conduct and often maintained a "code of silence" among officers involved in misconduct. The 161-page document follows a 13-month civil rights investigation of the Chicago Police Department, which began in December 2015 after Laquan McDonald, a black teenager, was fatally shot by a white Chicago police officer.
