ABC Chicago

Nearly 200 strong they came together Saturday call for peace. Neither the cold

Editorial: Chicago will soon see how Laquan McDonald died. passionate. peaceful
Chicago Tribune
There wide concern that the stark video will provoke violent protests Chicago.
But should released should have been months ago.
The case illustrates why its important for police make greater use video,
invaluable tool prevent police abuses, document when cops handle themselves
well, refute false accusations and furnish valuable evidence for criminal inquiries.
The Chicago police have pilot program using body cams and plan expand
next year.
Van Dykes lawyer said Friday that the officer handled dangerous encounter
appropriately and that the video doesnt tell the whole story. Maybe hes right. But
when released, will give the people Chicago the opportunity judge for
themselves. They will react passionately, and hope peacefully.
Rev. Jesse Jackson urges police shakeup response cops fatal shooting Laquan McDonald
Chicago Sun-Times
The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday hoping for police shakeup from top bottom after the release dashboard-cam video showing Chicago police
officer shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald times.
Jackson also called Cook County State Attorney Anita Alvarez step down
for failing charge the officer involved the deadly Oct. 20, 2014, shooting
near 41st and Kildare Archer Heights. hope people will civil and focus remedy and not just reaction,
Jackson said. think major police department shakeup should step toward
remedy and relief. think the indictment the killer and witnesses would
major shakeup. The issue should be: There are consequences for killing people
this way.
Jackson said the violence that some anticipate after the release the video already
has happened, saying, Sixteen times shot the violence. The quietness the face violence.
About two hours after the ruling, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who had fought the
release the video, put out written statement which reversed course and

Emanuel said hopes the video will provide prosecutors time expeditiously
bring their investigation conclusion Chicago can begin heal.
Carol Marin: betrayal trust McDonald, Koschman cases
Chicago Sun-Times each case, police argued the dead young man had caused his own
death. McDonald refusing stop approaching the officer. And Koschman
being the aggressor. each case, the person who killed them, according police, was acting selfdefense.
But both Koschman and McDonald cases, there were credible allegations that
police tried alter suppress witness testimony; each case video from
businesses the area went missing; and each case the City Chicago and the
police department fought deny delay media FOIA requests. Koschman, Police Supt. Garry McCarthy actually promoted the case supervisor chief detectives even though still under investigation the city
inspector general for allegedly manufacturing evidence exonerate the mayor
nephew. there any wonder why citizens distrust government when government keeps the
public own information out public view?
