Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 1/18

In this special 35th anniversary edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, gun control dominates the headlines locally and nationally. Two police misconduct cases cost taxpayers nearly $33 million. Mayor Rahm Emanuel begins accepting online applications to fill former 7th ward alderman Sandi Jackson’s seat in City Council. The nightmare continues for Chicago-based Boeing, as the FAA grounds its entire Dreamliner fleet. And in sports, the Bears hire offensive-minded Marc Trestman as their new head coach. And a surreal story involving Notre Dame star linebacker Manti Te’o, whose dead girlfriend turns out to be a hoax.
