The Department of Justice on Friday released its findings of an investigation of the Chicago Police Department.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said the report revealed a "pattern of excessive force" at the department.
The Justice Department launched the investigation in September 2015 to look into the city's surging violence and the department's use of excessive force.
