US justice department finds black and Latino civilians hardest hit by ‘unlawful force’ after 13-month investigation into city’s law enforcement

The Chicago police department regularly uses force that is “unjustified, disproportionate and otherwise excessive”, federal investigators have concluded.

In a scathing report released after a 13-month process, Department of Justice (DoJ) investigators found that police violated both the fourth amendment of the constitution and department policy in the use of deadly force. Poor training and accountability systems contributed to the department’s unconstitutional policing practices, the report said.“Our review of CPD’s deadly force practices identified several trends in CPD’s deadly force incidents,” investigators wrote, “including that CPD engages in dangerous and unnecessary foot pursuits and other unsound tactics that result in CPD shooting people, including those who are unarmed.”
