Pre-Roll Call

A Chicago police officer has been indicted on murder charges for shooting a black teenager (who was armed with a knife) 16 times. “The indictment comes a day before dashcam footage of the shooting must be released.” Jason Van Dyke is the first Chicago police officer to be charged with first-degree murder for an on-duty shooting. Once the video is released, this will become a massive national story.

+ The Atlantic: “Minneapolis police have arrested suspects in the shooting of five people at a Black Lives Matter protest Monday night.”
