The imminent release from prison of the former Chicago police officer who shot Laquan McDonald 16 times in 2014, killing the Black teenager, is a reminder for some of what they say is an unfair criminal justice system.
Former Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke left prison on Thursday after serving less than half of his nearly seven-year sentence for killing Black teenager Laquan McDonald.
Chicago officials are preparing to take action and bracing for massive protests in the city over the prison release of former city police officer Jason Van Dyke, who was convicted of murdering Laquan McDonald.
What people are saying?
Anirudh Chatterjee His release is not considered special treatment but is based on state rules that allow anyone to be released after about half their time , with good behavior.
Brian So release and white officer that is a killer but keep a black man in jail for 4 decades for holding pot. Something’s wrong with this picture. I am not against the police but come on there is seriously something wrong with out justice (injustice) system, there isn’t justice.
