Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Lawmakers demand justice for Adam Toledo: 'His hands were up. He was unarmed.'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic lawmakers on Thursday demanded justice for 13-year-old Adam Toledo, whom Chicago police fatally shot.

The calls came after the Chicago Civilian Office of Police Accountably (COPA) released footage of the encounter.

The video raises questions about the circumstances surrounding his death, as officials previously accused Toledo of having a gun. However, the video shows Toledo appearing to surrender and have nothing in his hands before police shot him in the chest.

The incident is raising fresh calls for police reform, as it comes during the ongoing murder trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged in the death of George Floyd that sparked nationwide protests last summer.

It also comes as the U.S. grapples with the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, whom police killed at a traffic stop Monday.
