Want Justice? Hold On to Your Cash This Holiday Season!

A police cruiser’s dashcam videotape that showed the brutal killing of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald by former Chicago Police Department cop Jason Van Dyke on Oct. 20 last year touched off a new round of protest yesterday after its court-ordered release. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy were quick to call for calm and order, but local activists are demanding accountability and long-overdue justice in the case.

Leid Stories proposes a way that everyone can contribute to the cause of justice in our society: Hold on to your cash this holiday season.
