  • FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2015, file photo, former Police Supt. Garry McCarthy and Mayor Rahm Emanuel speak in the City Council chambers in Chicago. For more than a year after officer Jason Van Dyke shot and killed Laquan McDonald, the Chicago Police Department had video footage and autopsy results that raised serious questions about whether other officers on the scene tried in their reports to cover up what prosecutors now contend was murder. The lack of swift action against the officers illustrates the difficulty of confronting the “code of silence” that has long been associated with police in Chicago and elsewhere.

  • This photo provided by PolyPEDAL Lab UC Berkeley, shows the compressible robot, CRAM with a real cockroach. When buildings collapse in future disasters, the hero helping rescue trapped people may be a cheap robotic roach. Repulsive as they seem, cockroaches have the unusual ability to squish their bodies down to one quarter their normal size, yet still scamper at lightning speed.  Add to that, the common roach can withstand 900 times its own body weight without being hurt. That’s the equivalent to a 200-pound man who wouldn’t be crushed 90 tons on his head.
