6. Not true...

It was the police union that was fighting the release... from the article:

In 2019, Young filed a Freedom of Information Act request to gain access to the video, but was denied by the Chicago Police Department. The footage was only shared with her after a court required it as part of her lawsuit against the department. Even after the video was in her possession, the department filed an emergency motion in federal court to stop CBS Chicago from airing the footage, a move that failed.

Young said she is not aware if the officers have received disciplinary action. Instead, she is demanding action from the CPD and Lightfoot. Lightfoot said she was "blindsided" by her law department's actions.
