This story isn't just about Jason VanDyke. CPD blanketed the Loop with officers. Offices sent their workers home. A college campus was shutdown. Sports events were cancelled. All because the same sort of white fear that animated the shooting of LaQuan McDonald.

Deploying police in Black people’s communities in anticipation of the verdict is racist. They extinguish Black bodies and now they want to extinguish Black feelings.

Every verdict read out one by one. Remember all the young, Black, driven, creative, dedicated, relentless, (exhausted) organizers who were out day after day for making sure this day in the couldn’t be avoided

Just a refresher: second-degree murder carries sentence of 4-20 years, but does not require prison time. Aggravated battery w/ firearm carries sentence of 6-30 years

Walking around downtown Chicago and seeing the amount of police standing around didn't help create a safe environment for me.

At the risk of stating the obvious, Jason Van Dyke being found guilty of second-degree murder feels like a watershed moment in American history.

Fascinated by language & POV, like when an employer sends out "security updates" with the clear assumption that the only way students & staff would be affected by it is minor inconvenience or access to the buildings and not, you know, SURVIVAL IN A RACIST CITY

To all my folks not in Chicago watching this unfold in the media... YES, we protesting & taking to the streets REGARDLESS NO we won’t be rioting...everyone wants peace but we also want justice & that goes beyond getting a conviction ✊🏽 CPD doing the most as usual

If the Mayor has the power to boost police 👮🏾‍♀️force to 4000 pending 👮 verdict why is it so difficult to provide similar protections to the rest of Chicago year round?
