Chicago Officers Must Now Give Medical Aid After a Police Shooting

It also showed a particular policy change in action officers attempting to give medical aid after a shooting. Patrick Smith of member station. WBZ reports and awarding this piece includes some audio from the body cam footage of Toledo's death. In the moments after Chicago police shot 13 year old Adam to Lehto. Officers on the scene, including the one who fired. The shot immediately began trying to save the boy's life in videos. Officers can be seen giving the boy CPR and desperately calling for an ambulance. Within seconds of firing the fatal shot. Officer Eric Stillman started talking with to Lehto. Resentment reshot. Stay with you Stay with Temple, Get an ambulance rolling. Somebody bring the medical kit. Now their life saving efforts were urgent, but ultimately futile. It was a much different scene than one captured in Chicago's most infamous police shooting video, the 2014 killing of teenager Laquan McDonald. And that Dashcam video after MacDonald had been shot repeatedly. 16 Times, Chicago police officers stood around as McDonald lay in the road, never doing anything but kicking the knife out of his hand. University of Chicago law professor Sharon Fairley used to run the Chicago agency that investigates police shootings. The incident that really sticks with her is the 2016 fatal shooting of 18 year old Paul O'Neill. An unarmed van shot by Chicago police. Young Paula Neil was shot and he's lying on the ground and They're just standing around waiting for the ambulance to show up, And they're not doing anything to help him fairly recommended police change policies and instruct officers to give medical aid after injuring someone.

"Is WGN TV. Is Paul listening. I'm talking with the great filmmaker, producer director. Cinematographer editor Steve James, about city so Real, a five part documentary series all about our hometown of Chicago that you can watch on Hu Lu Steve. So much of it is the mayor's race, and there were so many man talk about a cast of characters to follow around, but what I found interesting was because this began at the beginning of the race. You had an amazing amount of footage on people like Lori Lightfoot or or Amara Enya. But you didn't know it. Lori Lightfoot was like 2% at the time you were filming this. So did you have that kind of extensive footage on all of the candidates? No way weren't able to do that with all the candidates and frankly I would have wanted to. There were so many. I mean, you know this better than me. Initially there were over 20 candidates. And 14 of them made the ballot so it would have been impossible to do justice to all them. So part of what governed our choices about who to follow were candidates that we just thought were fascinating and interesting People and Lori Lightfoot Tomorrow, and you certainly fell into that category. We also attempted to follow some of the so called front runners and had less luck with them because they saw what we were doing as fraught for them. You know if if they were gonna indeed become mayor and We had gotten something embarrassing of them. Then they would have been sorry that they participated but that nonetheless we still followed them. We just followed them in a more public way. But I think one of the things that was really interesting about Lori, is that Yes, She was considered very much a back of the pack person and we saw how she emerged over the months and then really came on strong in the last month, six weeks to a month. And we felt like we because we had put in the time and been following her that that payoff in the Syriza's is really you know something for viewers to see now. Yeah, early on in the election. If you were a betting man in Vegas, you probably would put your money on Bill Daley of the Daily Family. Toni Preckwinkle. Maybe Susanna Mendoza early on. You do have footage of all those people, but it becomes very clear in the documentary that folks like Lightfoot or Amar Enya. They clearly gave you more access than then. And this is what you're talking about, I think then say daily did or Preckwinkle. You were there, but not in the same way. Yeah, And I think it's in part because they weren't um, front runner candidates, and also they were intrigued. You know very much individually. Candidates who followed Paul Balance is another one that we all right nail salads. Griffin is another one that we followed. You know, these were people who are also very much intrigued with what we were up to. They They love the idea of this Syriza's because when I when I pitched it to them, I said, Look, we're you know, we're gonna follow this campaign for sure. But we're not looking to a dead You know, daily in in your campaign, Um, in the way of many political documentaries. Do we want to create a portrait of this campaign and of the city and the people that live here? And people responded to that. And I think they responded in a way that caused them to want to be a part of this. And I think if you ask them today, they'll tell you they were really glad to have been a part of it. Even if they had wind. Was there a rhyme or reason? You know, every week we see a bit of the Laquan McDonald trial. Maybe we'd see a bit of the mayor's race, and then we would go to a neighborhood. That was another place. I ended up on the editing room floor because you had some footage about a half a block from my house. I just so you know that, but I'm fighting to get into your next documentary. You can see that, but anyway, was there all right? Was there a rhyme or reason to where the neighborhood's got in got input into the you know the story line or was a randomness about that? Well, there it was both there was there was. There was a randomness in the sense that we went out many days and myself and my producing partner Zack Piper, or my son, Jackson James, who also did a lot of shooting on the Syriza. We went out. You know, there are many days we went out where we didn't know where we were going to end up that day, and we kind of embrace that. And so we kind of let it lead us and sometimes it was candidates. You know, following a candidate that led us to a certain neighborhood. Sometimes we were driving around the city. There was one day we were driving around the city and we were over in little village and we saw this protest start to gear up outside of knee Tierra restaurant over there in Little Village. And we were like, Well, what's going on here? So we stopped and got out, filmed and turns out it was a fundraiser for governor rounder and that Willie Wilson was attending it. And when he came out The protesters gave it to him, You know, and you see that in the syriza, and so there was a lot of serendipity that was involved, too, and how we found ourselves in certain neighborhoods. You know, we shot in a south side barbershop in South shore That led us to a Bridgeport barbershop because we thought, well, we've been in this all black barbershop. Now let's go to Ah White barbershop and see what white patrons talk about when they when they're going to get their hair cut. And I remember all those things. They were fascinating. And I gotta tell you, I think without Willie Wilson, you don't have a documentary. Yeah. What a character. Really. Willie is a gift from the documentary God, Azzawi like to say in my business, Um, he is this remarkable guy. He's had a remarkable life and he's got an incredible personality and And he is much beloved in this city, particularly in the black neighborhoods because he is someone that is, you know, proceed. Having made it from nothing which is true and that he gives back a lot. And of course, he was in the midst of campaigning when we were filming him, and so No way we're able to follow him around tow. You know, when he did what we call the church crawl where he and this is something he did regularly where he would. On a Sunday he would visit three or four different churches. Speak and usually give them a donation on but be very careful to say he's not trying to buy their votes, of course. So listen about 20 seconds up real quickly. Did you have a viewpoint in this? Or was Chicago telling its own story? Well, I mean, you know, every film has a viewpoint but a zoo much as possible. We really tried to embrace the complexity of the city to given unvarnished portrait of the city, but one that's also Shows are passionate love for the city. And I hope that's what comes through. Ultimately, as you watch this serious serious is called city so real. You can see it on Who loo at your leisure. I absolutely love it. If you live in Chicago or the surrounding area, it is a must see. Filmmaker Steve James. Uh, you're phenomenal. I can't wait for your next project and thanks for joining me and have a wonderful holiday. Thank you so much for having me on again and you seem to you alright? Appreciated by the way, you could see my interview with Steve James on WGN TV's political report that's online, and he also joins me for a podcast, which will be posting soon, so that will be it For today..

"Keenan Salter is theater knee representing Engine. It young. She's the woman who last year had her door knocked open. The police were raiding the wrong house. She stood there with no clothes on for over half an hour, and our guest represents her. According to the reporting. I'm reading here in the papers, City lawyers filed a request to have young sanctioned for allegedly violating a confidentiality order on the video. Was she not supposed to Release that video, Keenan Really? I don't want to discuss that issue because it's part of ongoing litigation they have sent shifted their position and are focusing their efforts won me specifically, I think under the fundamental piece of this is, though you as a member of the media. You often the media often and for good reason uses the four year statute because the public has a right to access and understand what our government does, why they do it and how they do it. And so the four year statute as you probably know, has been in place for about 50 years. Those videos were absolutely accessible via the four year statute. What someone needs to ask the city is why they denied her request if it was for an ongoing investigation. Then why did they actually do an investigation? They tried to bury these videos. This is the city that bury the laquan McDonald videos for three years. It's unconscionable someone if the city would think it was appropriate to not provide after you violate this woman in this most inhumane way to tell her Oh yeah, By the way, you can't see what we've all seen because we don't want you to have access to it. They still wanna punish her lawyer. It says here. That's you. That is me. And so what's the punishment and it would be for the same thing. There's a confidentiality order and Now at least they could go after you for violating that it was not supposed to be released to the public. S so there's a protective order, not a confidentiality order protective order. And did you violate that? So, no, But like I said, Because that is the source of ongoing litigation. I'm not going to discuss that. Respectfully. I'm not trying to be rude to you. And I understand that. But what about Sandy? Amount of money. I mean, he is at some point, I presume it will come to that that did the city offer her any amount of money. Put a fine point on that. No, they have not. As of yet now. That was before the mayor as recently made comments that she wants to resolve this. Um as of right now, that is not occurred. A zoo relates to reaching out to us. Um, those discussions may happen soon, but I will tell you, um it's more than about the money, Miss Young. She wants accountability. She wants a real thorough and transparent investigation into why this happened to her specifically and more broadly, why does it continue to happen to people primarily on the southwest side of Chicago and people who are primarily African American Latino? That's a problem. I heard as you were leading off your initial, Uh, second it before me where there was a discussion about who primarily is being impacted by covert 19. I was a global pandemic. But those two communities are being most impacted in Chicago, and that's a narrative as old as the entire last century. I understand that I don't and this is not nearly as important and yet I just kind of curious Laquan McDonald's family was offered $5 million or accepted $5 million from the city. And those who different kinds of cases. And yet it is the city having to resolve an issue like this. Is there a number that you all have in mind that you feel like would be appropriate for the injury she suffered. So, um, we're not there yet. Uh, we're not there yet. For a variety of reasons, Um and and and and out of respect to, um, the litigants on the other side, out of respect to miss Young, Um, it would not be appropriate for me to discuss that in this for the police have done because when they were knocking down the door, they However wrong they had at the guy had a police tracker on there. The police they ought to know in what building or what unit they should go into. Absolutely, but they got it wrong. So I don't know what the deal is there, but it least they thought they were doing the right thing. Now they burst in there. Oh, my gosh, this lady's standards. She's got no clothes on. So at least at that very instant. I think the police were trying to do a good job. They weren't trying to knock down the bed. The wrong door. They just they screwed up. So so I wonder if in that moment what should the police have done then? Sure. So, And that's a great question. Because it actually deaf tells him to what their legal responsibility Woz. So you're right on the face of the piece of paper that the wrong was written on. It was a validly issued warrant for her address. So Fine so, but even before we get to the fact that they encountered her the way they did you probably seen the video. You noticed that the knocking is perfunctory. It's not loud. It's not knocking toe Wait for someone to answer the door. It's knocking to say that we did it. And then they immediately start banging the door down. So you gotta start. They're like why was that necessary? They got the warrant issued at 10 o'clock in the morning the way but I think it's necessary because not because they don't know that there is the wrong place if they're at the right place who knows if the people on the other side of the door loading up or escaping, so they've got to get in there right now, and I don't think there's didn't have the time for niceties. If there is this the right address? How many times you're in the media? How many times in the last five years? Have you heard of a raid that said that the Chicago police Department, um proceeded into where they knock down a door in this fashion, and somebody was on the other side of it with the gun firing at them? I don't know. I don't know. I don't. I don't have a number. An instance where you were even is because it hasn't happened. So so I'm I'm gonna respect we push back on what you just said. But that s O. And the reason why I'm pushing back is because if you watch the video, they knock down that door and went in that woman's out as if they were looking for a terrorist. This is an American city..

Jews they murdered him at the Jewish store nobody talks about him nobody cares that he got killed was murdered I get the other guy was murdered but so with this black sheep who was a good man I I believe his murder what we assume the murder was arrested about four five hours ago there was also that in uniform a security guard at the Rodham Dellums federal courthouse in Oakland on or ten days ago it was simply on duty in uniform somebody walked up and shot him in the back of the head now I I don't know is who knows his name he's lost because he can't his death cannot be used to advance a political agenda and so therefore his death means nothing to the mainstream media it means a lot to me means a lot to you means nothing to them but we'll take a break break call thank you let's continue with more bill Cunningham with you every Sunday night.

"She joins us now on WGN radio to talk a little bit about the new entries in the food delivery space, Heather John Williams. Welcome to the show. How are you? Good. How are you? Good your pieces. Headline the delivery wars. It starts with the story of somebody getting food delivered in Anchorage Alaska, which is ambitious isn't it? Yeah. So these services that really started in the big cities, including Chicago, grab house located here have really spread it all across the country in two suburbs. And smaller cities as they've tried to establish more gross to please their investors, and as more people consumers have gotten interested in these services. So we looked at both personally delivery and restaurant delivery and explored some of the stick gross happening here in the challenges economically for these companies, what do you mean challenges? So it is very expensive to do this and both for the restaurants and grocers who hire these third party services to perform this service for them. So again, like the hub post meets insecure to the world, they take a hefty cut of the of the profits from the service to. To to actually do the delivery. So to actually run online portal to hire the drivers Connie driver shuttle this around, but then there are also costs forty services to form that and that's why they're really trying to kill gross to their investors. So they can keep attracting investments to keep these services going. And then of course, there's cost to users. So you and me have to pay for this. So this is not free. Even though a lot of them are rank promotions. Eventually you are going to pay a fee for these services. We're talking about restaurants livery, and or grocery store delivery. Yeah. And what's the biggest growth is hit in the grocery store delivery. Or is it because some restaurants have traditionally delivered anyway pizza places stuff like that. Jimmy John's, but then there are other services that will pick up the food from restaurants and deliver it to you, right? Yeah. So that that's again, the grub pushed me type model and what they're doing is. They're bringing a lot more variety of delivery to two people. So traditionally like, you said, it was pizza places Chinese food sandwiches, really simple things to transport where you know, clearly established how you package up these goods and get people's homes. Now, this is adding a whole new complexity to it when you're delivering. Pasta salad or soup or milk. Shakes things that are complicated to deliver. The restaurants really have to spend time investing in that. And make sure it's actually worth it for them to do it. I'm not even sure it's always worth it for the brand sake. We had the two best hamburgers. Made in Chicago. According to a readers poll, we're actually a reporter tasted seventy two different hamburgers. In Chicago over the course of a month. And then he did a big story in the Tribune about who is first place in second place. We had those stores deliver their burgers to us. And with the reporter, we all sampled the best burgers in Chicago, which I'm sure are fantastic. But by the time, they got here, and we ate them. They weren't as good as they would have been in the restaurant. And now my experience with that with that brand is not as good as it would've been otherwise, you know. Yeah. And that's real risk for these companies when they hire these third party services to perform the delivery, it's kind of out of their hands. Once it leaves there. Their restaurant today. You know, they tried to do their best in terms of investing in good packaging to keep it hot or keep a cold or spelling. But once it leaves, there's only so much. They can do at often. There are complaints about movie arriving cold, and it may be well, that's another matter entirely. But maybe in the end of the day consumers will say I'm willing to pay more for food that is imperfect for convenience sake. There's no bad guy here if you're willing to do that more power to you. But I'm wondering if in fact, these delivery schemes will exist five years from now is this sort of testing period, or is this the way it's going to be forever and ever do you think? Is definitely a testing period. I think the question more is how many delivery services will there be rather than how will there be delivery services? All there's clearly a market for this people really want, the convenience of getting delivery, groceries and restaurants delivery to their home. They're busy to stress. They just want to be home with their families and the little time that they have. And they want the service bringing it to them. The question is though there's so many different services now all competing for market share. And it really we are in a period where plus testing learning, but eventually the probably some consolidation of these companies somewhere. Someone's mother is saying, but you're losing the value and the art of food preparation kids. I hate to see it go this way, you know. Yeah. And there certainly is going to be long term impacts of this either. Will we will we start to lose preparation skills? Well, we also, you know, generally restaurant food tends to be higher fat and higher calorie salt. Yeah. So the question is will, you know, some analysts say that people are using more leftovers out of their delivery. So they're taking taking one delivery turning into multiple meals. Maybe combining it with other foods that they prepare on their own. That's kind of a mash up that we're starting to see as the as. As a matter of matter of fact of life, but certainly for younger consumers who just grow up on this stuff. They they might not learn how to cook until they're much older. And then it'll be too late. And then they wish they had those recipes and skills, but no, they won't said someone's mother somewhere. Food food and farm reporter at the Wall Street Journal.
