WGN’s Erik Runge & former federal prosecutor Mike Monico join Roe Conn & Anna Davlantes to break down the sixth day of testimony in the trial of Jason Van Dyke. On what would have been Laquan McDonald’s 21st birthday, Van Dyke’s defense presented a “laser-based” computer animation purporting to show the shooting of McDonald from Van Dyke’s perspective.
