CHICAGO — Somewhere in the Cook County Jail, Jason Van Dyke, a white Chicago police officer, is waiting to learn how long he will spend in prison for killing Laquan McDonald, a black teenager. But even after the officer’s second-degree murder conviction last week, this city is still waiting for other verdicts.
"An Officer Is Guilty of Murder. On Trial Next: A Police ‘Code of Silence’" is from the October 09, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Mitch Smith and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
