This March 29, 2021, photo from Chicago Police Department body cam video shows officers doing CPR on 13-year-old Adam Toledo, lower left, after he was shot by an officer, in Chicago. The gun is believed to have been ditched just seconds before Toledo was shot, and Lemon reiterated his point that people should not jump to conclusions and consider this to be an act of officer aggression.
The Minneapolis officer who claims to have mistaken her gun for a Taser before shooting Daunte Wright quit the police force.
That incident has sparked violent protests as the city awaits the outcome of the trial of Derek Chauvin, the officer accused in the death of another black man, George Floyd. Chauvin's trial is now underway in Minneapolis.
"We pray that for the sake of our city, people remain peaceful to honor Adam's memory and work constructively to promote reform", the family said.
She declined to say if the footage showed whether the teen was holding a gun when he was shot, but she called a prosecutor's assertion at a recent hearing Adam had a gun when he was shot "correct".
"Time To End America's Longest War" In Afghanistan: Joe Biden
US service members walk off a helicopter on the runway at Camp Bost in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, September 11, 2017. News of the president's planned withdrawal has drawn stinging rebukes from leading Republicans in Congress.
Small groups of protesters gathered at a police station and marched on Thursday night, but there were few signs of widespread demonstrations in the city. Stop! Stop right [expletive] now!
"No one should have a video broadcast widely of their child's last moments, much less be placed in the awful situation of losing their child in the first place", she said. An officer, identified in a police report as Eric Stillman, demands that the teen stop, then shouts at him to "show me your f--ing hands". The boy raises his hands after appearing to throw away something.
Before the video's release, Lightfoot and attorneys for the family and city said in a joint statement that they agreed that in addition to the release of the video, all investigation materials should be made public, including a slowed-down compilation of what happened that morning. Period. There's no way a rational person can say they can process that and their muscle reaction would be less than one second, ' Catanzara said on Cuomo Prime Time. In the video, Stillman bumps into Roman, who police say fired the gun, but continues to pursue Toledo, who stops by a wooden fence.
The boy's family saw the video on Tuesday and asked that the video and other evidence not be immediately released to the public, according to a statement this week from COPA, which investigates all police shootings. He was later convicted of second-degree murder.
CBS Chicago Anchor Brad Edwards also tweeted photos of downtown businesses being boarded up. "I didn't need to watch the video to make that assessment on my own".
"The experience was extremely hard and heartbreaking for everyone present and especially for Adam's family", the statement said.
The Chicago Police Department typically does not release the names of officers involved in such shootings this early on in an investigation, but Officer Stillman's name, age and race - he is 34 and white - were listed in the investigation reports released on Thursday. Toledo was Hispanic, and officer Stillman is white.
