Chicago Cops In Laquan McDonald Case To Return To Work
Four Chicago officers, who were suspended without pay for their roles in the investigation into the fatal 2014 shooting of unarmed Black teen Laquan McDonald, are scheduled to return to work, reports ABC7 Chicago.
The Chicago Police board ruled Monday that the suspension of the cops, Daphne Sebastian, Janet Mondragon, Ricardo Viramontes and Sgt. Stephen Franko, before a criminal trial violates their rights to due process, writes the television news outlet. They will return to administrative duty, and their guns and badges will not be returned, notes the report. The list does not include Jason Van Dyke, who is charged with murder in McDonald’s shooting death, which sparked protests across the nation over the use of excessive force by officers in communities of color, especially in Chicago, where lawmakers have called on the department to face its racist past.
