Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, Nov. 6

Joel Weisman and his panel of guests discuss the top stories of the week.

Fox Lake investigators say that police Lt. Joseph Gliniewicz’s death was a suicide, carefully staged to look like a murder. Chicago police say 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee was executed to punish his father. Patrick Kane’s accuser backs out of the rape case–prosecutors say he will not be charged and Kane says he “did nothing wrong.” Spike Lee releases a trailer for his controversial movie, “Chi-raq.” And Chicago Public Schools may see thousands of layoffs as soon as February.
