A small memorial is seen where 13-year-old Adam Toledo was shot and killed by a Chicago Police officer in the Little Village neighborhood on April 15, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois.

Body cam footage released this week appears to show Toledo holding a weapon moments before he was shot, but CBS News posted a clip to its website and Twitter page that cropped out the footage showing the teen's alleged firearm.

The graphic body camera footage of a Chicago police officer fatally shooting 13-year-old Adam Toledo was released to the public Thursday afternoon.

"Look, I don't want to get into the real substance of this because the independent investigation is going on", Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Thursday during a press conference urging peaceful response ahead of the footage's release, "but I've seen no evidence whatsoever that Adam Toledo shot at the police". She also noted that the incident "left a child dead, a mother in mourning and a family in crisis".

"There are several videos that kind of start at the beginning of the episode but watching the bodycam footage, which shows young Adam after he is shot, is extremely hard", Lightfoot said. "And I would just say, I've said this to a number of people my, my staff or cabinet".

The video has sparked outrage across social media and debate about police reform. We need to start prosecuting every f-king person paid with tax dollars who knowingly lied about an officer killing an unarmed child killed with his hands up.
