Finally, asked there were any recent current efforts underway try minimize the City exposure alleged

Chicago Pay Million Victims Police Abuse TIMES Mitch Smith and Monica Davey May 2015
For decades, they had waited for apology. This group black men, some now graying and bent age, had
complained violent abuse the hands the police the 1970s and 80s this city South Side. They
said they had been suffocated with plastic bags, beaten with phone books, shocked with cattle prods
torture tactics meant extract confessions crimes. Wednesday, after years investigation, public debate and litigation, the City Chicago expressed
remorse. City Council members voted without dissent pay $5.5 million reparations victims torture
and abuse group officers known the Midnight Crew and overseen notorious police
commander, Jon Burge.
For those affected, there were also promises memorial, psychological counseling and job training, and
assurances that their story would taught Chicago schools.
This another step, but essential step, righting wrong, removing stain the reputation this
great city and the people who make this great city, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said.
For the victims, like Anthony Holmes, who spent years prison for 1973 murder says falsely
confessed after being tortured, meant the prospect relief. don care how you try forget it, how you try put the side, Mr. Holmes said. always there and times comes out you. You might break down and start crying. broad conversation about police conduct and race plays out cities like Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo.,
Chicagoans, too, are examining relations with the police, including episodes more recent than those tied
Mr. Burge. Wednesday, the City Council approved $415,000 settlement with woman who said she had been
sexually assaulted 2011 two duty police officers, who have since resigned and pleaded guilty
criminal charges official misconduct. Protesters have objected decision last month judge drop
charges against off duty Chicago police officer who shot and killed unarmed black woman, Rekia Boyd, 2012. And many say they are awaiting the fate police officer who shot and killed Laquan McDonald,
who was and carrying knife when was shot times last fall.
Over the past decade, the City Chicago has spent more than $500 million settlements, judgments, fees
and other costs related police misconduct, according 2014 investigation the Better Government
Association, nonpartisan watchdog group. Andy Shaw, who leads the association, said the city could have
used the money hire more police officers teachers, balance the city troubled budget.
More than years after Mr. Burge was fired from the Chicago Police Department, some people the city
toughest neighborhoods say that dealings with the police have grown tense, particularly the last few years city officials worked tamp down high homicide rate linked pervasive gang problem. don see the times being better all, said Mark Clements, 50, torture victim whose name was read
the Council meeting Wednesday. see these times more being times near riot.
Late last month, Garry McCarthy, the city police superintendent, announced plans for tour around the city
aimed building trust between police and residents. And police officials say they have worked make other
improvements, too: expanding bike and foot patrols neighborhoods, creating community policing offices
all police districts, and launching pilot program for body cameras. statement, the Chicago Police Department said: Jon Burge actions are disgrace Chicago, the
hard working men and women the police department, and most importantly those was sworn
protect. Mayor Emanuel and Superintendent McCarthy have zero tolerance for any misconduct.
The cases related Mr. Burge and the officers under his command had plagued this city for decades. 2010,
special prosecutors issued report corroborating the abuse claims. then, though, statutes limitation
abuse charges had run out. Instead, Mr. Burge was convicted 2010 perjury and obstruction justice;
completed his prison sentence this year.
Reached phone his home Florida, Mr. Burge declined comment the reparations.

FOP monthly newsletter states that the FBI conducting apparently wide ranging investigation into past police
involved shootings. The item says FBI agents have been showing the homes Chicago Police officers and trying
interview them. Apparently, this not limited LaQuan McDonald. there fact FBI investigation police
involved shootings that goes beyond the LaQuan McDonald case.

RE: couple specifics about tonights story
Short answer yes, nonsense.
The case has been settled and Federal investigation underway into the shooting officers actions. Perhaps thaYs
polite way decline responding these spurious allegations.
Nobody was threatened coerced.
Next, Moseley claims that police officers made witnesses leave the area the shooting, and then claims that these
witnesses were taken the Area where they were screamed and told change their story, and that video
audio recordings were made. This contradictory its face.
There statutory requirement for witness statements audio videotaped this time. not believe that there
was audio recording device the camera obtained the footage from. reaching out the Sgt. who handled the case get more specific details the points that Moseley inquires about.

they were screamed and told change their story. They also say officers did not video audio tape those witness
statements.
Their other questions include: Are the dashboard cameras that CPD uses its vehicle equipped with audio recording devices? Did the dashboard camera that captured video the incident 41st and Pulaski involving CPD officers and
McDonald have audio? would like interview the Superintendent regarding the officer involved shooting that night. that possible? not, does CPD have statement regarding the shooting and the subsequent investigation the FBI and the
Cook County States Attorneys office? Has CPD been served with subpoenas regarding the investigation?
CPD detectives deny anyone was threatened leave told change their story, however, this the CPD proposed
response
Any issues?
The Chicago Police Department continues cooperate with prosecutors investigating this incident, and cannot offer
any comment doing could interfere with the open criminal investigation. The officer involved the shooting has

Dear Mr. Gorner:
This letter response your Freedom Information Act (FOIA) request
the City Chicago Law Department which was received our offices
April 16, 2015. that request, you state the following: filing request under the Illinois Freedom Information
Act for any and all documents relating the settlement
between the City Chicago and the estate LaQuan
McDonald (Tina Hunter, his mother, the administrator). The
settlement was for million and its Cook County probate
case under Case No. 14P7092. your view any the above records contain information
you deem exempt from disclosure under the privacy 7(1)
(c) work product (1) (f) provisions the Freedom
Information Act please redact that portion the record and
provide the remainder, specifying the precise nature the
redacted information and the specific exemption which you
would rely the event was ask for its disclosure.
The Law Department filed timely extension, and you kindly agreed
provide the Law Department further time timely respond.
Two documents responsive your request, copy the settlement
agreement and copy body chart prepared the Cook County Medical
Examiner Office, are provided along with this letter. One home address
and one date birth have been redacted from the settlement agreement,
consistent with Section 7(1) the FOIA.
Section 7(1)(b) exempts from disclosure [p]rivate information, unless
disclosure required another provision this Act, State federal law court order, and the FOIA definition private information
specifically includes home address[es] except otherwise provided
law when compiled without possibility attribution any person.
ILCS 140/7(1)(b); ILCS 140/2(c-5). The home address appears directly
below the signature the representative for the estate Mr. McDonald,
thereby making attributable person. Additionally, there are laws
court orders which require disclosure this private information.
The date birth the signatory has been withheld consistent with ILCS 140/7(1)(c). Section
7(1)(c) exempts:
Personal information contained within public records, the disclosure which
would constitute clearly unwarranted invasion personal privacy, unless the
disclosure consented writing the individual subjects the information.
Unwarranted invasion personal privacy means the disclosure information
that highly personal objectionable reasonable person and which the
subjects right privacy outweighs any legitimate public interest obtaining the
information. individual date birth the quintessential type highly personal information
encompassed within the Section 7(1)(c) exemption, and the individual right privacy this
information clearly outweighs any public interest its revelation.
The Law Department possession certain documents gathered one its clients, the
Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA), pursuant administrative investigation into
potential disciplinary case. The documents regarding the McDonald shooting were obtained
IPRA from the Chicago Police Department, the Chicago Fire Department and the Office
Emergency Management Communications. this time, the Law Department unable
provide you with any these documents that are responsive your request for the reasons
outlined below.
Each and every gathered document pertains open criminal investigation being conducted
the Cook County State Attorney Office and open and active investigation being conducted the Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI). this time, all the documents are exempt from
release pursuant Section 7(1)(d)(vii) because disclosure the documents would obstruct
ongoing criminal investigation. ILCS 140/7(1)(d)(vii).
Release the requested documents could interfere with the open criminal investigation into this
high profile incident which has garnered much media attention. Among other things, the suspect
could become aware the identity witnesses and the specific details their statements, and the evidence that has collected the date the documents were generated. Public disclosure this information could impede and obstruct the ongoing criminal investigation. addition, witnesses named the documents could feel intimidated the public release
their identity and identifying information, which otherwise exempt under ILCS
140/7(1)(d)(iv), which permits the withholding [r]ecords the possession any public
body created the course administrative enforcement proceedings the extent that
disclosure would: unavoidably disclose the identity persons who provide information
administrative, investigative, law enforcement, penal agencies. Disclosure could lead the
failure those witnesses continue cooperating with the FBI active criminal investigation. addition, the above-referenced document obtained from the Chicago Fire Department,
ambulance record, medical record which exempt under ILCS 140/7(1)(b). Section
7(1)(b) provides for the withholding [p]rivate information, unless disclosure required
another provision this Act, State federal law court order. such requirement
disclosure exists here. The definition private information under ILCS 140/2(c-5)
specifically includes medical records, and has been determined that documents containing
information about person medical condition and/or treatment for injury are medical
records. See: Plain Dealer Publishing Company U.S. Department Labor, 471 F.Supp. 1023,
1027 (D.D.C. 1979).
Further, the Law Department possession advisory memorandum sent the Law
Department the City Council Finance Committee, however, this memorandum exempt
its entirety from disclosure pursuant ILCS 140/7(1)(m). Section 7(1)(m) provides:
Communications between public body and attorney auditor representing
the public body that would not subject discovery litigation, and materials
prepared compiled for public body anticipation criminal, civil
administrative proceeding upon the request attorney advising the public
body, and materials prepared compiled with respect internal audits public
bodies.
The Illinois Supreme Court has determined that public body that relies upon this FOIA
exemption required establish both the existence attorney-client relationship and that
the communications would not subject discovery litigation, meaning that the
communications fall within the attorney-client privilege. Illinois Education Association
Illinois State Board Education, 204 Ill.2d, 456, 791 N.E.2d 522, 528-9 (2003). One the
functions the Corporation Counsel and the City Law Department provide legal advice the City officials, such the Aldermen who serve the City Council Finance
Committee. This memorandum, prepared communicate the mental impressions and advice
the City Law Department regarding the McDonald shooting incident clearly qualifies
privileged communication which exempt under Section 7(1)(m). addition, draft versions this memorandum have been withheld their entirety
accordance with ILCS 140/7(1)(f) they constitute pre-decisional internal discussions and
deliberations between attorneys the Law Department. Section 7(1)(f) exempts:
[p]reliminary drafts, notes, recommendations, memoranda and other records
which opinions are expressed, policies actions are formulated, except that
specific record relevant portion record shall not exempt when the record publicly cited and identified the head the public body. ILCS 140/7(1)(f). The U.S. Supreme Court has determined that the deliberative process
exemption under the FOIA focuses documents that reflect advisory opinions,
recommendations and deliberations comprising part process which governmental
decisions and policies are formulated. NLRB Sears and Roebuck, 421 U.S. 132, 150-151
(1975). The purpose encourage frank discussion legal policy matters such that
employees government feel free express their opinions before final legal policy
decision made. Memoranda where preliminary opinions are expressed and actions are
formulated are expressly exempt from production under Section 7(1)(f) the FOIA.
Finally, your FOIA request unduly burdensome the extent includes e-mails (i.e., electronic
communications which may include one more document attachments). The FOIA provides ILCS 140/3(g) that requests for all records falling within category shall complied with
unless compliance with the request would unduly burdensome for the complying public body
and there way narrow the request and the burden the public body outweighs the public
interest the information. Your FOIA request seeks any and all documents relating the
settlement between the City Chicago and the estate LaQuan McDonald. (Emphasis added.) order effectively run email search, the Law Department needs the names email
accounts that you wish searched. The present email system tool set cannot identify the
department where email user works and, therefore, search cannot based department.
Parameters that would assist DOL conducting email search include: (1) the e-mail
address(es) the account(s) you wish searched; (2) key words you wish search for; and (3)
the timeframe searched. therefore necessary that your FOIA request narrowed and clarified the extent you are
seeking emails. you would like assistance narrowing your request, please contact me, and
will assist you. Otherwise, for the reasons provided above, the Law Department unable
