Vic Mensa vs. Chicago Police Department: Details on what sparked protests in Chicago & footage of police and Mensa

Yesterday was a very touchy day for the folks for Chicago.

Video footage of police officer, Jason Van Dyke, shooting and killing an unarmed man by the name of Laquan McDonald surfaced for everyone to see. The footage was released just hours after Van Dyke was charged with first degree murder.

Protestors flooded the streets of Chicago and none other that Roc Nation Representative, Vic Mensa was front row and center participating in the rallies against police brutality. Mensa reportedly got into a small altercation with the Chicago Police and a video showed him getting in-between a separate altercation that occurred between protestors and police.

It’s touching to see that the people that have the platform are coming together and choosing to try and help people realize that there’s a bigger picture here. #AllLivesMatter
