Clip: Chicago Protesters Demand Accountability
On Tuesday evening, Chicago officials released video footage of the Laquan McDonald shooting. The 17-year-old was fatally wounded by CPD Officer Jason Van Dyke in Oct. 2014.
A mass demonstration in downtown Chicago happened soon after the video’s release, which shows McDonald being shot by Van Dyke 16 times. Protesters joined hands late Tuesday evening to ask citizens and law enforcement officials to be held accountable for these types of injustices, and fight against systematic oppression following the release of the LaQuan McDonald dash cam video.
