The jury has reached a verdict in the murder trial of Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke, who is charged with killing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald in 2014.

Van Dyke faces two counts of first-degree murder, 16 counts of aggravated battery and one count of official misconduct. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.

The verdict is expected to be read at 2:45p ET Friday.

How many white people on the jury are Trump supporters?

It'll just be another "To Kill a Mockingbird" situation.

Kid was black and armed. Obviously lethal force was justified.

you see a dust cloud go up still at 0:45... 13 secs after he fell... probably helped get them to murder

if only he had worse aim he could've cut down on the assaults

You're a retard. Don't reproduce, if you did, then you should kill them.

probably none... people don't die instantly like we were led to believe in 1980s action shows

skipping around time slider he seems to still make small movements all the way through

Cops get off all the time for emptying their mag.

Meanwhile Abilene tards will go to jail for life because daddy fired twice after bat tard fell.

Good to see some justice here.

President Trump can't pardon him unless the charges are federal. There are some people who are saying he appointed Kavanaugh so Gamble vs US can be overturned meaning if President Trump pardons someone for federal crimes the states can't put them on trial for the same crimes claiming double jeopardy.

Laquan?

Something I do not understand, maybe one of you guys do.

Why do so many Black folks use unusual names?

Are they authentic African names or is the purpose to make the kids unique or is there another reason that I'm not thinking of.


Just curious, no big deal.


BTW, I'm expecting myriad charges of racism so you can save your breath. I am honestly just curious.

You have a history of racism, so it is fair to assume you're racist.

Laquan is African in origin (English spelling) and there are several famous athletes with the first name Laquan.
