Lawyer of Chicago officer charged with murder says video 'distorts images'
By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - The lawyer for a white Chicago police officer charged with murdering a black teenager said on Wednesday his client feared for his life and that footage from a patrol car camera released this week is unreliable because video "distorts images." The lawyer, Daniel Herbert, told CNN that on Oct. 20, 2014 Officer Jason Van Dyke arrived at the scene 18 minutes after a suspect carrying a knife was reported to have threatened businesses and vandalized police cruisers. Prosecutors said on Tuesday that Van Dyke shot 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times only 30 seconds after he arrived on the street on the southwest side of Chicago. Van Dyke's lawyer said on CNN that the dashboard camera video, released by the city on Tuesday 13 months after the shooting, was not an indicator of his client's guilt.
