constitution. >> u.s. attorney general loretta lynch this morning with a report from the department of justice on the chicago police department. the findings are simply put horrifying. they gave some examples. a man had been found walking down a residential street with a friend when officers drove up, shined a light on him and ordered him to freeze because he had been fidgeting with his waistband. the man ran. the officers fired 45 rounds, including 28 rifle rounds, several rounds struck the man, killing him. officers found no gun on the man, however officers reported recovering a handgun nearly one block away. the gun recovered in the vicinity was determined to be fully loaded an inoperable and forensic testing determined there was no gunshot residue on the man's hands. chicago's independent police review authority, or ipra, which we have talked about on the show before, found the actions of the officers justified. this was not uncommon according to the report. in many of these cases, ipra generally accepted the officers' versions of events which were later undercut by video evidence.
