Justice. The criminal investigation into the officer conduct continues.
The officer involved, Van Dyke, has been stripped his police powers and assigned desk duty. While the
Chicago Police Department can strip officer his her police powers pending criminal investigation, the
Department cannot separate the officer until the investigation complete.
The City will also conduct administrative investigation into this incident determine whether the office

Judge Rule Police Shooting Video that Might Rip Chicago Apart
TIME Josh Sanburn November 15, 2015 judge set decide this week whether make public video showing Chicago police shooting black
teenager times, footage that those who have seen say could create the kind unrest seen other U.S.
cities following police related deaths. Nov. 19, Cook County judge will rule Freedom Information Act request seeking the release
dashcam footage showing the final moments year old Laquan McDonald, who was chased cops
before being shot repeatedly Jason Van Dyke, white police officer.
Two attorneys for McDonald family who have seen the video believe could spark violence Chicago
released the public. recent ChicagoTribune about the video was titled The video that might rip
Chicago apart and why you need see it.
What that video much more graphic than what saw from Baltimore South Charleston, Jeffrey
Neslund, attorney for the McDonald family, told TIME, referring the police related deaths Freddie
Gray and Walter Scott. Neslund obtained the video through probate subpoena.
The incident occurred Oct. 20, 2014, after police received information that individual was carrying
knife Chicago southwest side. Several squad cars approached McDonald, one which included
dashcam. Neslund and Mike Robbins, another attorney representing the McDonald family, says one those
vehicles followed McDonald while shining spotlight him for several blocks.
According both attorneys, police chased McDonald into Pulaski Road, four lane thoroughfare, and
stopped the middle the street they attempted contain him. Officer Van Dyke then emerged from
the passenger side one vehicle and fired initial round shots McDonald from distance roughly feet, then fired again multiple times after McDonald collapsed the ground. The attorneys say that
while McDonald refused drop the knife, was walking away from officers the time was shot.
You can see walking away from the police angle when the officer starts shoot, Neslund says.
There was threat.
According the Chicago Tribune, Fraternal Order Police Spokesperson Pat Camden told reporters that
McDonald had PCP his system and described him staring blankly officers and had crazed
look.Camden said McDonald refused officers orders drop the knife and lunged police before they
opened fire. also said McDonald slashed one the police vehicle tires and damaged windshield.
Robbins says that while McDonald was not acting rationally, wasn aggressive and did not threaten
officers. autopsy later showed that nine the gunshots were fired into the back McDonald body.
You see him spin and down, and they continued shoot him, Robbins says.
According multiple news reports, Chicago police also allegedly deleted minutes security camera
footage from nearby Burger King that would likely showed part the police chase.
The Chicago Police Department declined comment for this story, citing ongoing investigation headed the FBI. Van Dyke reportedly desk duty but still receiving pay.
The McDonald family does not want the video made public, having won million settlement April which
included agreement not release the video. The Nov. ruling stems from FOIA request from Chicago
based freelance journalist Brandon Smith asking for the police department release the video.
The city claims that making the video public would impede ongoing investigations the incident. However,
Matt Topic, attorney representing Smith, says there are currently affidavits from the FBI. The Chicago
Police Department would need detailed affidavits prove those exemption claims, Topic says. Friday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said believed that wasn appropriate release the video. You have,
obviously, investigation, Emanuel said, according the Chicago Tribune. And you never would release
video while that investigation going on.
There will likely appeal Thursday matter what the judge decides. But the attorneys say the video
will likely eventually released, either through the current FOIA request once the investigation
complete.
There will uproar released, Neslund says. And could destructive.

misinformation that out there, wanted provide update the status the criminal investigation into the
officer conduct. Below are some brief points:
Immediately after the incident, the Independent Police Review Authority turned over all evidence the case
prosecutors, including the Cook County State Attorney and the office the U.S. Attorney, Department
Justice. The criminal investigation into the officer conduct continues and though would all like see some
resolution, the length the investigation completely out our control. (Not sure edit captures what
trying say, but essentially want say that cannot speed this and that when this concludes out
our control.)
The officer involved, Van Dyke, has been stripped his police powers and assigned desk duty. While the
Chicago Police Department can strip officer his her police powers pending criminal investigation, the
Department cannot take further action separate officer until the investigation complete.
The video the incident captured the dashboard camera inside responding police car key evidence
the criminal proceeding and thus has not yet been released the public not want/cannot influence
