This is a great example how publicity and community action can force change in long established obstacles to fair investigations of police involved shootings. Its an opening to see how law enforcement protects itself and/or is transparent and honest. It goes both ways. Once expected appeals from the police unions are overcome.
And this is in Illinois. Amazing.
