It’s been nine days since the video of Laquan McDonald was released. Among the millions viewing the shooting are his classmates. CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker takes a look at the killing through the eyes of other teens. Students at Sullivan House High School have not only seen the infamous video of their former classmate, Laquan McDonald, pelted with bullets by a Chicago cop, but they’ve watched numerous times. One youth says he’s seen it “at least 30 times.”
For some teenagers in Chicago, the Laquan McDonald case is hitting very close to home, stirring up deep emotion and raising lots of questions - about race, and about their city and country.
