The Week in Review: Clarion Call for Police Reform

On this edition of “Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review,” Joel Weisman and his guests discuss the news of the week.

The Chicago Police Department faces a scathing review from a reform task force that says many Chicagoans believe officers are "fundamentally racist." Meantime, aldermen OK Eddie Johnson as permanent police superintendent and approve millions in new police misconduct payouts. U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk announces plans to skip the GOP convention. Drivers could face new per-mile fees and gas taxes. An update on the Mel Reynolds and Dennis Hastert cases.

And in sports, the Blackhawks stumble, the Bulls fade and the Cubs and Sox keep going strong.
