Take your feet out. Get up. So this is the video from inside the Juliet police car On January 28th Eric Laurie was put in the back of the car following a narcotics investigation.

Eventually, one officer uses a baton to search inside Laurie's mouth while the other plugs his nose. Lori's family attorney, Michael Oppenheimer, called the video extremely disturbing for a number of reasons, and they should have called for an ambulance immediately. They hold this nose for one minute and 38 seconds and then they stick a baton down his throat. That is simply unbelievable, Oppenheimer said. Police did several things wrong. Well, a long time ago, police used to try and do that, and they end up hurting people very badly. And since then the case law The law is that you cannot do that You can on ly render aid And if you believe that he swallowed drives, you have to wait for those drugs to come out naturally or that's it. They were not trying to render aid to him. They were trying to get a conviction. There's no proof that even had swallowed drugs. The family said. They've been trying to get information from police about Lori's death for months, and if they knew they did nothing wrong. If they knew they were just trying to save this man's life. Why did they not released the video when they had when this happened and explain this to the public instead? They've hidden it. It looks bad. Smells bad, and I believe it actually is the murder of Eric Ward. We reached out to the Juliet Police Department for comment, but have not heard back yet.

"You know, we just say that maybe we'll feel better by Dow without for Starbucks nearly did a cartwheel in the parking lot. Oh, I know. I noticed that too. I took my mom to a to a medical appointment downtown parking lot. We nearly both took a, you know, the editor. Yeah. Careful careful. I'm looking out the window back here on the TV can see this lookout. Also anyone with a window can see it. Yes. But go ahead. Yes. I just wanted to say is we looked at. It's it's a pretty good shot of the down the river going down out toward Lake Michigan. And it's and you could barely see that ferris wheel. Because now, it's being this is like grapple, intensive grapple rain, sleet. Yeah. Aren't we all do a shot? Yeah. Now, I there was there was a warning. I gotta ask Tom skilling about this coming up at four o'clock. There was a warning issued by the national weather service over the weekend for like violent freezing. Like water, right or something. You can tell them meteorologists out and Romeo. Ville had a little fun with it. Now. Keep in mind, they haven't been paid for a month. So we're just lucky that they're still putting out forecasts it I couldn't figure out what it meant. Shards of glass in the air is basically what they were saying understand it. It's kind of what it feels like outside right now. Yeah. All right. So we it's beautiful. It's january. This is the worst of it people were in the worst of it. If we can still smile, then we're doing so grow your so optimistic. Where did that come? I actually I have to tell you about this story that we were doing this afternoon at five o'clock involving the big weekend. Snow Shannon Halligan who covers traffic for us. Got a hold this video that's been floating around the internet. A plow crew that was clearing the tarmac at O'Hare airport. All that snow has to go someplace in when they're clearing it pretty close to the airport perimeter. They just shoot it over the fence. What we've got some amazing video of it. Landing on a car that flew by on the highway in so much snow was turned out by this plow that it cracked windshield of the car. Shannon talk to the drivers. So so is it like shooting? I like being blown out lower. Yeah. It's a, but it's a massive snow blower that they use their for the taxiways and runways altered. Don't they have a melter whoever melter that they can it's a melting pad that they can push some of that stuff into when they really run out of room for it. So I tell you that only from the standpoint of it could be worse. You could be driving by O'Hare an accident. Pelted with so much snow was anybody in the his windshield. I'm the video is wild is windshield is totally busted up. It is funny. How when you look at like parking lot. How the there are mountains. Everest sized mountains in the parking lot. We haven't really had a total cumulative snow that at high here. Now, we have not had much snow at all remember that year a couple of years back when they ran out of places to put the snow in the city. I think just started shipping, Indiana. That's what we do with all of our problems. There you go Indiana. People who want to avoid the taxes. That's what we do. We send our snow and people who want to avoid taxation and are gamblers. Yes. Yeah. Not for long. For a long my friends. We're going to be doing allow gambling here in Illinois. Hey, did you hear we finally whittled down the mayoral candidates to fourteen o who didn't make the less Dorothy Brown? Kind of a shocker, but I should say not too surprising. If you actually looked at her her petition signatures Laura's did a story a couple of weeks back if which pointed out that some of the signatures. I think even my seven year old could could point out that they'd clearly been signed by the same person just signing a different name over and over and over again. But still rather surprising for a veteran politician Dorothy Brown who is traditionally despite all of her problems both in terms of efficiency of her office. And the problem of federal investigation in your own conduct is managed to keep a lot of support. I think she got forty seven percent of the vote in her Cook County court clerks race backing twenty sixteen she had hoped to be on the ballot for mayor. But today Chicago Board of elections booted are often she says, she's not gonna fight it. She got other things. She's about to fight is my well, she's been funding though, you say that she has been under investigation for years. So to argue that something has changed now and his imminent. I.
