Morning Shift: November 25, 2015

Tuesday night hundreds of protesters took to the streets around the city’s central district after the Emanuel administration released a dashcam video showing police officer Jason Van Dyke shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times. It took authorities a year to release the video and it happened only because a Cook County judge ordered it released. Hours before the video went public, the officer was charged with first degree murder and he’s now in jail. We hear from a number of guests with their thoughts on the video itself, the manner in which the city has handled the whole situation and what needs to happen moving forward to improve police-community relations. We also take listeners’ calls. Then we check in with Chicago Tribune reporter Bonnie Miller Rubin to hear how to approach sensitive conversation topics over Thanksgiving dinner with family.
