The Week in Review: Mayor Emanuel Delivers an Emotional Speech

On this week’s edition of “The Week in Review” with Joel Weisman:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel delivers an emotional anti-crime speech in response to Chicago’s spiking violence. The mayor focuses on a variety of programs to help stem the city’s soaring crime, but critics say it isn’t enough. And he pledges 1,000 new police officers and no new taxes to pay for them.

In other news: The political reporters covering Monday’s presidential debate give a preview. Chicago teachers take another strike vote and plan a strike date. And the Bears season looks bleak with Jay Cutler and other top players sidelined by injuries.
