Quick Hits – The verdict at 1:45 p.m.

The jury will announce the Jason Van Dyke verdict at 1:45 p.m. CST. Should you want to see it live, please turn to CLTV on your cable or satellite network.

Van Dyke 2

Given the light speed nature of the deliberations, and the fact the jury asked the Judge two questions, my money is on a second degree murder conviction which will make everyone unhappy, but it might just prevent rioting.

But the protest leaders are saying, if it ain’t first degree murder – if there’s no justice for Laquan McDonald, there will be no Chicago Marathon on Sunday. Interesting!

I’ll be watching!

PS: It was a second degree murder conviction exactly as it should’ve been.

  1. I know you said you had things to do and you were not going to post on Friday or Monday. And maybe this breaking news is technically a Friday post. But just for future reference please do not take a long weekend off if the Bears are not playing. What a damn long day and no First Ward till Wednesday. Thank goodness I brought booze
    Have a tremendous Indigenous People Day Dude
