Back in the United States, a Chicago judge on Thursday acquitted three police officers accused of covering up the 2014 murder of black teenager Laquan McDonald by a fellow officer. The acquittal came despite discrepancies between the three officers’ police reports and dash cam video showing that McDonald posed no threat and walked away from officers before he was shot 16 times by white police officer Jason Van Dyke. Van Dyke was convicted of second-degree murder for the shooting in October.
