Mom whose son was killed speaks at Chicago police-reform hearing


Interesting. A mother whose son was fatally shot by a Chicago police officer struggled to keep her composure Thursday as she described to a federal judge how it took years to get basic information from the department about her son's death. Cynthia Lane was speaking at a hearing for members of the public to tell  udge Robert Dow Jr. their thoughts about a draft plan to reform Chicago police under court supervision. Dow will decide whether to approve the more than 200-page document. The officer shot Lane's 19-year-old son, Roshad McIntosh, in 2014. But a police-oversight agency reopened the case three years later when video raised question about parts of the officer's account. A lawsuit from the family alleging McIntosh was unarmed is pending.
