CHICAGO — Chicago Police defended their actions after a lawyer Wednesday released a surveillance video showing stun grenades exploding and SWAT officers pointing assault weapons at people kneeling in a hallway.

"It looked to me like the Chicago Police Department is engaging in military-type activity," said attorney George Becker after filing a $10 million federal lawsuit against the city, adding that his clients thought they were being robbed.
