Short version of what happened: LaQuan McDonald was shot by a police officer. Several officers in the incident agreed to lie about it. But there was Video proved that they had all lied, and so the PD tried their best to prevent the video from being used. The PD also managed to abuse its power in other ways to dodge proper investigation of the incident (e.g. the officers were initially all questioned together instead of separately after being allowed time alone to get their fake stories straight). The officer who fired the shots - a man who also may have previously been involved in cover-ups of shootings other than this one - was just convicted of murder, and this is the reaction of the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police: Disgusting. Aren't they supposed to be part of the "rule of law", and isn't part of that rule of law a trial by a jury of one's peers? There was nothing sham about that whatsoever - but it would have been a sham had they gotten their way and had the video proof held back from the jury. The other law enforcement officers in America ought to have nothing to worry about from this case (possibly others, but not this one). If you are part of upholding the law, don't try and subvert the law by getting together and lying about a legal situation. Oh, and don't repeatedly shoot a man in the back who is lying on the ground - getting convicted of doing this and then comparing the conviction to a stab in the back is repulsive.
