Peaceful Protests Occur After Video Released of Chicago Officer Shooting Teen 16 Times

A public school teacher was one of those taken into custody as a large crowd of protesters marched down Michigan Avenue to disrupt Black Friday shoppers and draw attention to police brutality within the city.

Protests began in Chicago on Tuesday after a judge ordered that the Police Department release dash cam footage of the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The video shows Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting McDonald 16 times. Van Dyke has since been arrested and charged with first degree murder.
