Jason Van Dyke Trial: Chicago officer found guilty of 2nd-degree murder Luckily there was a dash cam to show this scum bag as the murderer he really is. If not for the dash cam, he would have gotten away with murder. All the other CPD officers on the scene and the police union rep all said that the victim came at them with a knife and Van Dyke had to use deadly force. The video spoke for the dead. I just hope that they put Van Dyke in general population.
