The below statement can be attributed to Nusrat Choudhury, legal director at the ACLU of Illinois:
“The death of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, shot to death by Chicago police officers, is a tragedy for the Toledo family, the community and the entire City. We grieve for his mother, family, and friends.
Foot pursuits in Chicago long have been dangerous. That continues today. The Monitor overseeing the consent decree designed to reform the CPD last week demonstrated that the percentage of Chicago police foot pursuits involving deadly force more than doubled in the most recent reporting period. 
Four years ago, the US Department of Justice unequivocally found that CPD’s lack of a foot pursuit policy contributed to patterns of excessive force against communities of color. For four years, the City and CPD resisted repeated calls from advocates and the community to adopt a foot pursuit policy. It should not have taken the death of a 13-year-old to finally get a response. 
A Chicago Police Department policy on foot pursuits is long overdue and must address unsafe foot pursuit tactics and set forth guidelines that balance the objective of apprehending people for whom there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful conduct with the serious risk of injury and harm.”
