Police officers in Chicago on Trial for lying about a Murder

Three police officers are currently on trial for allegedly covering up a crime by another officer.

On October 20th, 2014, Jason Van Dyke murdered Laquan McDonald. Van Dyke and his fellow police officers then attempted to cover up the murder and make it seem like self defense. Despite their actions, Van Dyke is currently in prison for the murder of McDonald.

Now, according to the New York Times, the officers who lied for and help Van Dyke are being charged.

Patricia Holmes, a special prosecutor who the case, started the trial off by saying, “Instead of serving and protecting all citizens of Chicago, the defendants tried to protect only one, Jason Van Dyke.”

These officers attempted to appeal to a judge to have their charges dismissed. The judge denied their appeal. There is no news yet on a trial date.
