    Chicago police officer who shot black teen 16 times found guilty of murder

    Shows what a state the US is in when a verdict like this causes shock.

    The response of the police union shows how far it still has to go.

    Kudos to BLM who I understand were instrumental in getting the footage released. Well done guys.

    Civil Rights? Do you ever know what you are talking about?

    The cop was convicted of a criminal act.

    Not really, in the absence of video evidence he would probably have walked. First chicago cop in 50 years to be convicted. Hmmm, they must be a bunch of angels up in Chicago.

    what

    obviously it did

    the system reviewed his actions

    referred a criminal complaint

    went to court

    was found guilty by a group of peers

    and sentenced to prison

    looks like it worked from here

    LM was still a jackass criminal and good riddance
    ....the CRIMINAL blacks will still keep getting shot if they do stupid stuff/threaten cops/resist/etc and rightly so
    --that's why so many are NOT found guilty
    and he is probably innocent
    you people are always complaining the courts are wrong, aren't you
    so, he's probably innocent
    make up your minds

    Yep , this was about civil rights. And hopefully it starts more police getting tried for murder when they do things such as this.

    I wonder why he needed 16 shots to get the job done. At some point the kid would have stopped being a threat.
