Chicago police arrested nine people during a protest in the Dirksen Federal Building downtown Thursday, including Kina Collins, a Chicago-based organizer and candidate for Illinois’ 7th Congressional District.
Laquan McDonald's grandmother said Jason Van Dyke would still be in prison for murdering her Black teenage grandson if the former Chicago cop wasn't white. Van Dyke was released Thursday after serving less than half his sentence.
Ex-Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke is set to be released from prison after having served less than half of the 81-month sentence he got three years ago after he was found guilty of murdering Laquan McDonald by shooting the teenager 16 times.
Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul challenged the light sentence that former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke received for killing Laquan McDonald.
