Congresswoman Robin Kelly Statement on Laquan McDonald Video Release

CHICAGO –(ENEWSPF)—November 25, 2015. Congresswoman Robin Kelly (D-IL) issued the following statement today in response to the release of the video depicting the shooting death of Laquan McDonald:

“I cannot begin to fully express the depth of my outrage at the senseless killing of Laquan McDonald. The video is nothing short of horrific. I offer my condolences to the McDonald family, for whom the pain of losing their loved one has undoubtedly been compounded by having his death on public display.

Yet as horrifying as the video of his death is, it needed to be made public because the lingering questions surrounding this case are equally as disturbing. The community is right to demand straightforward answers to those questions. And I fully support this quest for truth.

I have been encouraged by the young activists of Chicago who have been at the forefront of the call for justice for Laquan and their positive and productive movement for change. It’s an example I hope all Chicagoans will follow in helping to create a fairer, more equitable system of justice for us all.”
