Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.
Because the shooting occurred over a year ago, David Axelrod had some questions:
Why did it take a year to indict a CPD officer who shot a kid 16 times? Would it have happened today if judge hadn't ordered video release?
