White police officer who shot Laquan McDonald 16 times gets bail, to be released from jail soon

Officer Jason Van Dyke will be released from jail at some point this week. This will occur because a Cook County judge believed it was appropriate to grant Van Dyke a bond.

According to CBS Chicago, Judge Donald Panarese Jr. granted Van Dyke a $1.5 million bond. The judge stated that he was not responsible to determine the officer’s innocence or guilt. He also believed that he was not a flight risk. The judge got an opportunity to review the dash cam video where Van Dyke shot McDonald 16 times as the teen walked away. The shooting continued after the teen was on the ground.

It was basically an execution and total disregard for human life. The shooting also came after Van Dyke had a string of complaints filed against him. Rather Van Dyke is a flight risk or not, he doesn’t deserve a bond because he’s apparently a menace that should be locked away for good. But it’s just another mishap by Chicago officials who have attempted to cover-up this case since it occurred last year.

Individuals inside the courtroom were apparently upset with the bail and voiced their displeasure. Van Dyke will likely pay the $150,000 and be released from jail at some point this week.
