Rep. Jan Schakowsky Statement On Charges Against Chicago PD Officer

CHICAGO – (ENEWSPF)–November 24, 2015.  Today, Representative Jan Schakowsky released the following statement about the first-degree murder charge filed against Officer Jason Van Dyke:

“After more than a year of investigation, Officer Jason Van Dyke has been formally charged with the murder of Laquan McDonald. I strongly support that decision. Law enforcement officers are sworn to serve and protect. It is clear that in this case, that oath was violated. I believe that these charges are not only appropriate but necessary in order to ensure that justice is done.

I also support the release of the video of the shooting. It is important that situations like these be handled with transparency. The release of this video will help resolve claims about what happened on October 20, 2014.

I encourage all who have been touched by this tragedy to honor Laquan and his family by remaining peaceful in their demonstrations regarding the events surrounding Laquan McDonald’s death.”
