On Thursday night Chicago police released extremely graphic bodycam footage of a police officer shooting a 13-year-old gang-banger.
An unidentified police officer fatally shot 13-year-old Adam Toledo on March 29. Chicago officials only released the video on Thursday night.
Adam Toledo, AKA “Lil’ Homicide,” was armed as the officer chased him down an alley.
Adam Toledo threw his hand gun moments before the police officer fatally shot him.
CBS News fanned the flames and shared deceptively edited police bodycam footage where they trimmed the right and left edges away to omit the portion of the video that shows Toledo holding a firearm.

CBS News is putting police in more danger by making it appear a police officer shot and killed an unarmed 13-year-old.
The notorious street gang Latin Kings are already threatening retaliation against the Chicago police.
But CBS News doesn’t care.
Full video here. *At best*, CBS News looked at an explosive issue like a controversial police shooting & prioritized mobile screen viewing optimization over showing the full body camera footage (and thus edited out a key fact leading up to the shooting).https://t.co/b1P814LGjN
