Guest: Mitch Smith, reporter, New York Times In the coming weeks, Jason Van Dyke will learn how long he will spend in prison for shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. Van Dyke is the first Chicago police officer in decades to be found guilty of murder for an on-duty shooting. It’s rare anywhere in the country for a police officer to be charged with a crime involving use of force on duty. It’s even more rare to see that charge result in a conviction.
