Van Dyke also wasn't listed on their "offender search" website as of this afternoon. I emailed the spokeswoman for clarification -- what is the specific nature of these security concerns should his location be made public? -- but haven't heard back.

Best reporting partners I’ve ever had the privilege to work with and call my friends. Team Tribune and (not pictured) our brilliant editor Matt O’Connor.

Second-degree murder is served at 50 percent, meaning he will get day-for-day credit assuming good behavior.

Gaughan is back on the bench, about to announce his sentence. He says he thinks "100 percent" of the people in the room will be disappointed.

McMahon noted that the judge received many letters from Chicago police officers, voicing support for Jason Van Dyke and describing how their jobs have been difficult since his arrest. "Their job is difficult because of the actions of Jason Van Dyke," McMahon said.
