Laquan McDonald, 17, was carrying a knife when Van Dyke fired at him on a dimly lit street where he was surrounded by other officers. Police confronted the teen and warned him to drop the weapon.
"It's Jason Van Dyke firing bullets, ripping into the flesh of Laquan McDonald 16 times".
But the jury found Van Dyke guilty of second-degree murder and other charges. "If the jurors hadn't convicted Van Dyke, it would have been an outrage, but it would have been a familiar outrage".
The Justice Department launched an investigation, concluding in a scathing report past year that the department violates the constitutional rights of residents.
At prosecutors' request, Van Dyke's bond was revoked minutes after the verdicts were announced and Judge Gaughan ordered he be held in jail pending sentencing.

First lady Melania Trump is learning about a painful part of America's history on her first full day in Africa. But a few signs of protest were afoot, too, as President Trump is not widely seen as a friend of Africa.
But Van Dyke, who testified in his own defense, tearfully told jurors that he felt threatened and that the video, which was taken from the side, did not show the scene from his perspective.

Herbert said there was no question the case is tragic but it did not amount to murder.
City officials had fought releasing the tape in court and it was only released until after Emanuel safely won reelection to a second term and after Chicago's City Council approved a US$5 million (S$7 million) settlement with the McDonald family.
Last year, the city borrowed $225 million on police-related settlements and judgments, bringing the total to $709 million between 2010 and 2017, according to a report by the Action Center on Race and the Economy. Yet, high-profile prosecutions are rare in the city despite its department being notoriously accused of corruption, especially with its interactions with residents of color. Protesters have gathered outside the George N. Leighton Criminal Courthouse every day of the three-week trial. Some schools, for instance, took measures to close down if Van Dyke was found not guilty.
Mr Van Dyke now faces a minimum of six years in prison and a maximum of over 15 years, with the possibility of probation. Some activists have argued for peaceful protests in the form of an economic boycott.
