Protesters Hit the Street as Chicago Releases Video of Cop Shooting Teen 16 times.

Hundred of protesters took to Downtown Street in Chicago on Tuesdays to protest against the Policeman that shot a black teenager 16 times lying dead on the ground.

The protesters were outrage when the video of a white Policeman, Officer Jason Van Dyke emptied 16 bullets into the body of 17years old Laquan McDonald Oct, 20, 2014.

The officer has been charged with first degree murder, yet that hasn't stopped the backlash and protest of the injustice melted on the deceased.

The video shows, McDonald walking down the middle of a thoroughfare. It appears he was walking away from the police when he's first struck. He fell down, lying on his side and about two seconds later, two puffs of smoke can be seen. USA Today reports; Prosecutors said the puffs of smoke were clouds of debris caused by fired bullets. The last visible shot was fired about 13 seconds later and his body has jerked and his arms have moved slightly, while he lays on the ground. At that point, an unidentified officer, who prosecutor's identified as Van Dyke's partner, approaches McDonald and kicks a small knife the teen is holding in his hand.

This undated autopsy diagram provided by the Cook County Medical Examiner's office shows the location of wounds on the body of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald who was shot by a Chicago Police officer 16 times in 2014. A judge on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015 ordered the city to release squad car dashcam video of the shooting. The officer has been stripped of his police powers, but remains at work on desk duty.USA Today.
