There is a video of the actual police shooting of 17-year old Laquan McDonald in Chicago last October, but the video is not being released at this point because of an active investigation. According to the police report, the officer who pulled the trigger “was scared for his life” and shot the teenager in his chest.
But a coroner’s report showed that Laquan was not just shot in the chest, he was also shot in the leg, in his arm, in his head, in his back. A total of 16 bullets riddled the teenager’s body, a shooting that took 16 seconds to complete.
Yes, the shooting officer made it back home to his family in one piece and Chicago is cutting a $5 million check for Laquan’s family.
I wonder why?
