WBBM News Features Prof Schak’s Analysis of Barricade Scene Investigative Reporter Brad Edwards Seeks Schak's Comments On Police Action

WBBM-TV News Investigative Reporter Brad Edwards recently reported on a crime situation in which suspects holed up inside a South Side coachhouse after firing shots at a Chicago Police commander in his car.

Police stormed the house and arrested the suspects there. But they failed to find two suspects hiding in a crawl space before they cleared the scene.

That’s when Edwards came to Richard Schak, director of National Louis University’s Criminal Justice program and a former Chicago Police Department sergeant, for an analysis of the situation.

See how Schak evaluated the error, and what he recommended, in this brief WBBM segment.
