Chicago police release a much-debated video. It contains footage from a police officer’s body camera that appears to show a 13-year-old boy dropping a handgun, then raising his hands just before the officer shoots, and kills him. The release of the video in the city of Chicago comes at a sensitive time in the US, with the ongoing trial in Minneapolis of a former officer in the death of George Floyd and the recent police killing of another Black man in one of that city’s suburbs. Please note that this report contains images that may be difficult for sensitive viewers.DW News YouTube Channel
