Morning Shift: December 14, 2015

Today is the day a Cook County judge is expected to rule in the trial of a high-ranking Chicago cop accused of official misconduct and aggravated battery. WBEZ’s Chip Mitchell brings us up to date on the trial of Glenn Evans, the Chicago Police commander accused of shoving the barrel of his gun down the throat of a man and threatening to kill him. Then we also hear about the pros and cons of having kids specialize in one sport at an early age. Plus, we revisit a conversation with one of the directors of a moving documentary called “Almost There,” about a northwest Indiana outsider artist. And we have the details of the agreement reached at the climate summit in Paris.
