Family of man fatally shot during Chicago police traffic stop sues for wrongful death

The family of Dexter Reed, a Chicago man killed during a traffic stop where officers fired nearly 100 times, filed a wrongful death lawsuit. The lawsuit claims the officers used brutal tactics, violated laws, and failed to provide timely medical care to Reed. Community activists are calling for the firing of the officers involved. The lawsuit also alleges that the Chicago Police Department promotes violent policing tactics. Reed had a previous altercation that resulted in injuries leading to PTSD. The family is seeking a jury trial and monetary damages to ensure the police comply with reform plans.
