Description

An investigation into a police shooting of a 17-year old. Our investigation uncovered the following: allegations that police failed to properly interview witnesses; a claim that Chicago police on the scene that night erased 86-minutes of video from surveillance cameras at a nearby Burger King; that none of the police cars on the scene recorded audio and only two of the original five squad cars recorded video; that failure to record audio was in violation of a special police order; that none of the cars on the scene reported any dash cam malfunctions; that police reports were in direct contradiction to what was seen on the video; that city emails showed top aides to the Mayor were corresponding about the video months before the Mayor claimed he was told in detail what happened. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH9t8LPofrM&feature=youtu.be
