It's over for the time being. Now that a verdict has been returned in the Jason Van Dyke trial, activists are shifting their focus. The Chicago police officer was convicted Friday of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery in the Oct. 20, 2014, slaying of Laquan McDonald, who was shot 16 times. Van Dyke, 40, was acquitted of official misconduct. He is slated to appear in court again October 31st. The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Saturday said those involved in covering up the 2014 shooting should be held accountable. He and other faith leaders talked about the need to push for more accountability.
