Joel Weisman and guests discuss the week's news: Deadly police shootings shock the nation, but protests in Chicago remain peaceful. Chicago police oversight hearings are criticized and slammed as inadequate. Over the Fourth of July weekend, the Chicago Police Department beefed up patrols and cracked down on violence, yet police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said he’ll review the deployment to see if more could have been done.
Former lawmaker, political mentor, judge and presidential adviser Abner Mikva is remembered. O’Hare is spreading around nighttime jet noise as part of a six-month test. And in sports, the Bulls land Chicago native and basketball superstar Dwayne Wade.
