BREAKING: A former Chicago police officer who killed Black teen Laquan McDonald leaves prison after serving less than half his sentence.
Jason Van Dyke was convicted of second-degree murder and aggravated battery for the October 2014 shooting.
Jason Van Dyke is being released from prison today after serving a mere 39 months for the murder of Laquan McDonald. Let us be clear: this is not justice. I’m calling for federal charges to be brought against Van Dyke. We cannot rest and we cannot move on until justice is served. pic.twitter.com/qEZrfzZtMh

COMMENTS AND REACTIONS.
For 27 years I woke up and put on my uniform knowing that I took an oath to protect and serve my community. Send me to the Senate, and I’ll wake up every day to do the same.
PSAKI: “I am blissfully not a spokesperson for Senator Cruz…”
First, Cruz begs forgiveness for saying Jan 6 attackers were terrorists.
Now, Hawley echoes the Kremlin, questioning if Ukraine should be allowed in NATO.
Welcome to Trump’s GOP, where propaganda is policy and Senators grovel at the feet of despots.
you ever think about how banks pay you near 0% interest for the money you give them (which they use to invest and make big profits) but will still charge $35 overdraft fees?
Guess that’s why their CEOs all deserve to make $35 million a year.
Mark Zuckerberg just lost $24 billion in net worth, as Meta stock drops 22% in after-hours trading.

I birthed 4 babies in 4 years and I trust my pelvic floor way more than I trust Greg Abbott during a winter freeze.
This governor isn’t looking out for us.
He’s looking out for his big donors who made billions off the blackout while we pay the price.
Jen Psaki pushes back on Republican Josh Hawley: “If you are digesting Russian misinformation and parroting Russian talking points, you are not aligned with longstanding, bipartisan American values.”
Has anyone estimated how many American lives would have been saved if the entire country had gotten vaccinated at the rates at which people in, say Vermont or Portugal, or at which registered Democrats, have gotten vaccinated?
NEW: Biden has nominated Stephanie Dawkins Davis to the 6th Circuit.
She’d be the first Black woman from Michigan and only the second Black woman ever to serve on the appeals court.
BREAKING: Jen Psaki puts Republicans on blast, says it’s “pretty rich” that they’re whining that they’ve been “short-changed” by Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill and deserve a larger share after aggressively voting against it. RT TO THANK PSAKI FOR SETTING THEM STRAIGHT!
I’ve risked my life for the nation more times than I can remember, yet to you and the far-right, I’m a traitor because I refuse to pledge allegiance to one man. I think you’ve forgotten what America is all about.
