Chicago Finally Releases Video of Police Officer Shooting Unarmed and Disabled Ricky Hayes | The Intercept

[ed note: The video on the link below contains video footage and sound of senseless violence]

Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability, or COPA, today released video footage of the August 13, 2017 shooting of an African-American teenager named Ricardo Hayes by police officer Khalil Muhammad.

Viewed against the backdrop of the recently concluded trial of officer Jason Van Dyke for the murder of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, the release of the Hayes video is an occasion to ask what has and has not changed since the release of the McDonald video in the fall of 2015 precipitated a political upheaval and demands for reform.
