The Chicago Police Department will begin patting down attendees of gang funerals to prevent violent attacks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told CBS News.

"The police department is going to change the way they deal with gang funerals," he said. "If you cannot respect a place of worship, at a time of a funeral, we are going to show a different type of attitude."

The funerals will now be treated as "gang events" by the department.
