Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 10/5

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, Chicagoans react to the first presidential debate. Illinois sells a prison. Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is likely to be out of view until after the election. The U.S. Attorney subpoenas Chicago police disability records. Chicago and the suburbs battle over transit funding as the RTA fights for its life. And in sports, the Bears are going strong as the White Sox collapse. And the Cubs lose 100 games for only the third time in their history.
