This investigation documented how the Chicago Police Department, civilian investigators and local prosecutors routinely clear officers in shootings before all the witnesses are interviewed, autopsies conducted or basic evidence, including fingerprints and ballistics, analyzed. Over the last decade, not a single on-duty police officer has been charged with shooting a civilian.
