+ Vic Mensa marched with protestors in Chicago prior to the release of a video showing a white police officer Jason Van Dyke shooting and killing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald in October 2014. Authorites have charged Van Dyke, who shot McDonald an estimated 16 times, with first degree murder and denied bail. It took a lawsuit and a judge's court order to get police to finally release the graphic footage to the public. In other news, poet Malcolm London was freed from jail and cleared of all charges on Wednesday in Chicago.
