Demand Justice For Laquan McDonald

On October 20, 2014, 17-year-old Laquan McDonald was brutally gunned down by 16 shots from Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke. Even though the police had the dashboard camera the entire time they did not arrest Van Dyke until over a year later and only after overwhelming pressure from grassroots organizations. Because Chicago city officials had no intention of holding Officer Van Dyke accountable, we demand:

  • the resignation of Superintendent Garry McCarthy for his role in continuing the culture of violence towards Black people within the Chicago Police Department
  • the resignation of State's Attorney Anita Alvarez for her history of bias towards Black people in the court system, and continued protection of violent and corrupt police officers
  • Governor Rauner appoint a special prosecutor to investigate this case, and all future cases of police killings
  • the United Nations launch an immediate investigation of the Chicago Police Department and Cook County State's Attorney's office for violating the human rights of Black people of the city and county

​Demand justice for Laquan now today by signing this petition.
