Early this morning, CPD was provided version the Laquan McDonald shooting video that was uploaded
Youtube and allegedly contained audio from the incident. Prosecutors, independent investigators and the police
department have been very clear that the video recovered from the vehicle camera system the scene contained
audio. This morning, CPDs forensic investigators determined the audio contained this online video not authentic.
The radio traffic appears stock audio file and siren and police radio track sounds appears monaural

Heres what CPD would like say. think its good. debated mentioning that CPD sending the FBI

Ruthhart last reached out CPD 7:30 this morning. think CPD should try walk him through this off
the record and kill the story since its not true. insists it, Anthony can give him the statement the
record.
Thoughts?
Early this morning, CPD was provided version the Laquan McDonald shooting video that was uploaded Youtube
and allegedly contained audio from the incident. Prosecutors, independent investigators and the police department have
been very clear that the video recovered from the in-vehicle camera system the scene contained audio. This
morning, CPDs forensic investigators determined the audio contained this online video not authentic.
The radio traffic appears stock audio file and siren and police radio track sounds appears monaural
recording while the gunshots appear stereo quality, which would not possible from the in-car camera system.
Garbled talking the background apparently does not match this incident and the apparent sounds gunshots are
inconsistent with the rest the file terms volume and clarity. our continued commitment transparency and the
efficacy the investigation, CPD will also sending this video file several independent forensic investigators
evaluate the findings our forensic team.

saying that believe the video not authentic but sent the feds for

start the story Chicago and L.A., videos police shootings may just the start the story
TRIBUNE James Queally and Richard Winton November 25, 2015
The video, shot from the dashboard camera police cruiser, shows black teenager walking
down the middle Southwest Chicago street. Two police officers approach the year old
from his left, guns drawn.
The teen stumbles and falls hit gunfire. But, Cook County prosecutors say, Chicago
Police Officer Jason Van Dyke continues shooting even after Laquan McDonaldhas crumpled
the asphalt.
Van Dyke fired shots total, investigators said. McDonald died short time later.
The recording key piece evidence released Tuesday first degree murder charge was
filed against Van Dyke the latest catalog videos that has put police use force
under intense scrutiny across the U.S. the past months, surveillance feeds and cellphone
recordings have led protests and criminal charges after officers used force against civilians
New York City, Los Angeles, Cleveland and South Carolina, among other places. Many the
protests have focused the role race police use force, particularly against black men.
The videos are often visceral nature, showing what many activists consider clear cut
misuse force police officers. Cook County States Atty. Anita Alvarez said she moved
her decision charge Van Dyke after judge ruled last week that the video should released the public.
But, even demonstrators took Chicagos streets Tuesday night protest the shooting
McDonald white police officer, law enforcement experts around the nation warned that
recordings like the one that captured the teens death can paint incomplete picture.
Knowing what happens video after happens totally different than knowing what the
cop was thinking and what will say was thinking, said Eugene ODonnell, professor
the John Jay College Criminal Justice and former assistant district attorney New York City.
The video obviously could damning terms criminal case, but the ultimate question is, there malice towards the kid? totally unwarranted under any view the evidence? The
video does not speak for itself.
Recordings clashes between police and civilians have been especially resonant Los Angeles recent months, where video filmed bystander several officers opening fire
homeless man skid row earlier this year generated national outrage.
Deciding whether make official recordings public has also proved thorny issue for city
leaders.
The spread similar videos has sparked large scale protests some cities. Chicago, Mayor
Rahm Emanuels administration tried keep the recording McDonalds death from
becoming public. Los Angeles, the LAPD generally does not publicly release recordings from
cameras mounted its patrol cars officers uniforms.
Van Dyke was one several officers responding reports that McDonald had been spotted
breaking into vehicles and stealing radios Oct. 20, 2014, according details the case
released court Tuesday. The first officers the scene reported that the teenager was armed
with knife and walking away from the area. Cook County prosecutors said, one point,
McDonald waved the knife walked past squad car.
The teenager did not speak any the officers respond commands drop the knife.
autopsy showed McDonald had PCP his system.
Van Dyke was about feet away from McDonald when started firing and continued
shooting for seconds while the teen lay the ground, prosecutors said. Van Dykes partner
told investigators had stop the officer from reloading.
Law enforcement experts who reviewed the recording said that, first glance, the shooting
seemed excessive. Obayashi, Inyo County sheriffs deputy who also works attorney use force cases, said the fact that Van Dykes partner did not fire his weapon could prove
critical trial.
The testimony that officer going very, very compelling about why did not
perceive deadly threat, Obayashi said.
Other experts who reviewed the video could not understand how Van Dyke could perceive the
teenager threat. dont see justification for deadly force. walking away from the officer, said Geoff
Alpert, criminologist the University South Carolina and expert police force.
Sid Heal, former Los Angeles County Sheriffs commander and force expert, questioned both
Van Dykes decision fire and the prosecutors move charge him with murder.
Its going tough make case that arrived scene and decided only seconds premeditatedly kill the suspect, Heal said. the defense can make any valid case for self
defense, manslaughter seems more appropriate.
The video highlights the way surveillance footage can influence prosecutors. Earlier this year,
cellphone recording showed North Charleston, S.C., police Officer Michael Thomas Slager firing
several shots into the back unarmed black man, year old Walter Scott, who was
running away from the officer.
Murder charges were filed against Slager April less than hour after the citys mayor and
police chief received the video, officials said that time.
While recordings deadly clashes between police and civilians have gained increased media
attention recent years, the videos are not always enough gain criminal convictions.
Former San Bernardino County Sheriffs Deputy Ivory John Webb Jr. became the target
national outrage 2006 after video showed him towering over off duty Air Force police
officer and shooting him several times. Despite indications that the man shot appeared
surrendering, Webb was acquitted attempted voluntary manslaughter trial. recording New York City police officer placing Eric Garner apparent chokehold
during fatal 2014 clash also sparked nationwide protests, but grand jury declined indict
the officer manslaughter charge.
The law gives police officers wide latitude using force when they believe that their lives
the lives others are danger.
ODonnell said prosecutors will have prove that Van Dyke did not believe McDonald posed
immediate threat his life when opened fire.
Why would choose just cold blooded kill someone? Why would that? ODonnell
asked. Youre going have answer that question.

TRIBUNE John Kass November 26, 2015
Would Mayor Rahm Emanuel have been elected voters had seen the video Laquan McDonalds

Without the black vote, Rahm Emanuel would not the 9.5 fingered boss Bartertown. Black political
figures would have been uneasy standing with Rahm. They would have run away. They couldnt stand with
him. Not that video came out during the election campaign, the video showing white cop Jason Van Dyke
shooting McDonald, hitting him with two rounds, and then, with McDonald the ground, hitting him with
more shots.
Emanuel could have even sat President Barack Obamas lap for photo both them wearing matching
Dr. Denton pajamas (the kind with the feet) and sipping identical cups cocoa. And that still wouldnt have
