State’s Attorney Challenger Speaks on McDonald Shooting

By Bill Cameron, WLS News

(CHICAGO) In the race for Cook County State’s Attorney, challenger Donna More rallied about a hundred supporters Wednesday downtown.

More officially kicked off her campaign promising to end corruption and put a police-involved shooting unit in the state’s attorney’s office. She said it wouldn’t have taken her more than a year to indict Officer Jason Van Dyke for shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times in October of 2014.

“I think that when you look at that video tape, and it’s hard to put an exact date, but I think that case should have been indicted in November of 2014,” More said.

And to give her campaign a little energy, outspoken defense attorney Sam Adam Jr. stepped up to endorse her.

“I knew there was no need for me to run, there was no need to back a Kim Foxx, we have who and what we need in Donna More,” Adam said.

Adam took a pass on endorsing his fellow African American Kim Foxx.
