Dear Cabinet Members, would like provide important updates two police misconduct cases that have been the news. Many you
may have questions about these cases and the City response.
First, the Chicago Police Department released video this evening showing Chicago police officer shooting and killing
Laquan McDonald, year old who was carrying knife. The incident occurred October 20, 2014. Within hours
the incident, our Independent Police Review Authority initiated investigation. Several days later, IPRA sent evidence the case, including the video, prosecutors who initiated criminal investigation. the same time, the officer was
stripped his police powers and assigned desk duty. The criminal investigation being led Cook County State
Attorney Anita Alvarez and U.S. Attorney Zach Fardon, and the City has been cooperating fully. Earlier today the State
Attorney charged the officer with first degree murder. Once the charges were filed, the Chicago Police Department
suspended the officer without pay.
Last week court ordered the City release the dash camera video the incident November 25th response
FOIA request, and said will comply with that order. this point, the City had declined release the video
not interfere with active criminal investigation. For example, releasing video during pending investigation has
the potential compromise eyewitness testimony because witnesses may adjust their testimony fit what they
others perceive the video. Not releasing evidence during ongoing criminal investigation consistent with the
longstanding practice federal, state and local law enforcement authorities.
Please rest assured that are working hard reach out community stakeholders, activists, elected officials,
teachers, principals, media and others advance the video release. Yesterday the Mayor personally met with many
leaders and activists clarify the facts this case and seek their assistance making sure our City reacts peacefully
this horrendous incident.
Second, yesterday Superintendent Garry McCarthy announced his recommendation terminate Officer Dante Servin
for his fatal shooting Rekia Boyd. Today, the formal charges justifying the termination were sent the Chicago Police
Board for review and further action. The Superintendent full statement about his decision provided below:
After considerable deliberation, have come the conclusion that Officer Dante Servin showed incredibly poor
judgment his efforts intervene low level dispute while off duty, said Superintendent McCarthy. His actions
tragically resulted the death innocent young woman and unthinkable loss for Chicago family and
community. the end, CPD has rules that all must live by. Officer Servin violated those rules and going
held accountable for that. have also attached the Mayor full statement regarding this decision.
Please feel free share this message, including the facts the case, with your employees you see fit. you have questions about this week events, not hesitate reach out directly.

Editorial: staggering moment for Chicago
Tribune
Its not enough for Emanuel and McCarthy urge calm. Its not enough talk about the increased training and
supervision that McCarthy says have dramatically reduced the number police shootings his watch. The mayor and
his police chief must commit thorough examination and overhaul the disciplinary process. That must come with
pledge for greater transparency, the public can see for itself how complaints against cops are resolved.
Police officers deal with dangerous situations every day. But Chicagos history slow disciplinary action creates
the impression that misconduct goes unpunished. That has change. The city must make good its promise put
cameras every cruiser and every cop. And must stop trying hide those recordings from the public. not for the video, its unlikely that Van Dyke would facing murder charge. Chicago wouldnt having this

Hello All Wanted give you update light the release the Laquan McDonald video late
yesterday.
Last Night: Last nights protests were reported relatively peaceful. CPD reported handful arrests but
primarily only minor incidents. Most the marches took place between the Loop and South
Loop. Protesters went past Jones College Prep approximately 8:10pm. CPS took the following precautions preparation for the video release: Communications sent email out 4:30pm notify Chiefs and Principals that the
video would released late the afternoon following the Citys 4:30pm press
conference. The Email directed principals call the Student Safety Center (open with any
questions concerns. Only ONE school (Parker) called all evening and that was because
they had questions. Safety and Security set Rapid Response Teams case there were any situations that
needed attention. such situations arose. called every Network Chief individually ensure that they didnt have any
concerns and explain the process. All were comfortable. Rapid Response Teams will continue available needed Wednesday. vendors Union partners inquired, they were reminded follow the existing
standard safety protocols (notification, response, etc.)
Today, Wednesday: are aware only one school that will have classes session: Instituto Health Charter school (2520 Western). Extra security supports are planned for the school just precaution. There has been chatter about few protests today, one City Hall Noon-2pm, one 4PM (Jackson/State). Father
Pfleger has called protest for Michigan Ave for Friday.
Unless there are any specific situations affecting CPS, will not provide any further updates, however, please feel free
contact directly you have any specific questions concerns. appreciate everyones support bringing these plans together quickly last evening, but esp. Hayley, Emily, Doug,
