According to the Washington Post:

“”Chicago police officials have recommended firing seven officers for lying about the shooting death of Laquan McDonald, a black teenager whose 2014 killing helped spark intense protests and a federal investigation of the department.”

Cops shot McDonald in the back from more than 40 feet away as McDonald walked away from them holding a knife. The cops lied and said McDonald was close to them and lunged at them with a knife.
