CHICAGO — The Justice Department is demanding information from the Chicago Police Department, in a wide-ranging probe of possible illegal practices.

The Sun-Times reports, in the first four months of 2016, the feds made 86 different requests for information stemming from the police shooting deaths of Laquan McDonald and Quintonio LeGrier.

Among other things, the feds are looking for evidence of a “code of silence,” in which police try to protect each other from being held accountable for misconduct.
