White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the video of 13-year-old Adam Toledo getting shot by a Chicago police office ‘chilling’ during Friday’s press briefing.
Psaki said she hadn’t spoken to President Joe Biden before the morning briefing, so didn’t know if he’d watched it, but said it served as a ‘reminder’ that ‘too often in this country law enforcement uses unnecessary force, too often resulting in the death of black and brown Americans.’
She said the shooting was unnecessary after Chicago cops released bodycam footage showing the boy had a gun and dropped it just before the officer opened fire.
