Independent Chicago journalist Jamie Kalven has been a voice calling for police reform in Chicago for years, and it was his lawsuit against the city of Chicago that brought the autopsy of Laquan McDonald into the light.
McDonald, a 17-year-old black man, was shot to death by police officer Jason van Dyke on October 20, 2014.
Van Dyke was charged with murder after the release of the autopsy and damning dashcam video of the incident, which showed McDonald--though he was armed with a knife--walking away from officers before van Dyke opened fire and later reloading his gun.
In all McDonald was shot sixteen times and died at the scene. 45:19 minutes (41.49 MB)
