Chicago Police Department

Since 2001, nearly 51 women, mostly African-American, were strangled or asphyxiated on the south and west sides. The Chicago Police Department is finally reviewing those deaths to see if they are connected.

Despite Michael Thomas Jr. being innocent of any wrongdoing, Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said the officers involved “followed all of the rules and protocols.”

The three cops are charged with conspiring to cover up alleged wrongdoing by Officer Jason Van Dyke in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

McDonald, a 17-year-old Chicago teen, was shot 16 times in 2014 by officer Jason Van Dyke. McDonald's death lit a long simmering fire within Chicago that led to protests, calls for Emanuel's resignation, the termination of former superintendent Garry McCarthy, and a Justice Department probe.

Dante Servin, who shot unarmed Rekia Boyd, resigned before a hearing Tuesday over whether he should be terminated for the off-duty 2012 incident.

According to Harvard's current President Drew Faust, the university “was directly complicit in America’s system of racial bondage,” and a new plaque that lists the names of slaves who worked on campus is meant to remember “stolen lives.”

The officer who shot and killed Black Chicago teen Quintonio LeGrier is planning to file a lawsuit against the estate of LeGrier.

The city of Chicago has begun a $5.5 million payout of reparations to nearly 60 individuals who were tortured by the police in the 1970s and 1980s.

Officials in Chicago have released the dash-cam video footage of Laquan McDonald's shooting death at the hands of city police Officer Jason Van Dyke from October 2014. The video was released a day ahead of the court-ordered deadline and on the same day Van Dyke turned himself in to authorities.

17-year-old Laquan McDonald was allegedly walking away from the police at the time that he was shot 16 times by Officer Jason Van Dyke in October 2014.

On the clip, the officer is heard saying that Michael Brown “got what he had coming.”
