Protests Erupt in Chicago After Release of Police Shooting Video
Protesters took to the streets of Chicago late Tuesday after officials released a dash cam video showing a white police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times.
Officer Jason Van Dyke, a 14-year veteran, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.
Mike Tobin reported that hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets, with many gathering outside a Chicago Police Department building.
A Fox News camera captured one protester intensely staring down a police officer.
On "Hannity," former NYPD detective Bo Dietl said that he can't see any justification for Van Dyke shooting McDonald more than a dozen times after he was already downed.
Eric Guster added that McDonald was not only outnumbered by police officers at least six to one, but he was clearly moving away from them as well.
Guster also pointed out that the shooting took place in October 2014. He said that prosecutors taking more than a year to decide to charge Van Dyke with murder is another reason why people are so outraged.
