Lots of news

There are quite a few CPD pattern and practice-type stories in the news today:

1. Verdict for ousted investigator:

2. The city is refusing to turn over records regarding the shooting death of a juvenile:

Cook County Circuit Court judge has blasted a decision by attorneys for the city of Chicago in their refusal to release records detailing how Chicago police officers shot and killed a 16-year-old.

3. The trial of an officer for another shooting continues.
