Vic Mensa Among Protestors Clashing With Chicago Police Over Laquan McDonald Shooting

In October 2014, a white Chicago police officer shot a black 17-year-old named Laquan McDonald sixteen times, killing him. On Tuesday, Officer Jason Van Dyke was charged with first degree murder and police were ordered to release the graphic dash-cam footage of the shooting, sparking protests throughout the city. As Pitchfork and Consequence Of Sound point out, young Chicago rapper Vic Mensa was among the protesters. Now footage of him clashing with police and discussing the altercation afterwards has emerged. “We want justice for Laquan and we want justice for our people,” he says in one of the videos.
