Three Chicago police officers have been indicted on charges that they conspired to cover up the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald by police in October 2014.
Video released in 2015 showed a white police officer, Jason Van Dyke, shoot McDonald 16 times. He has since pleaded not guilty to murder.
Three officers, Thomas Gaffney, David March, and Joseph Walsh, were charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Chicago police have not responded to the charges.
Moments after Philando Castile was shot dead by Officer Jeronimo Yanez … his fiancee and her daughter were in the back of a police car, and the just-released video of them is absolutely heartbreaking.
You’ll recall, Diamond Reynolds broadcast the aftermath of the July 2016 police shooting on Facebook Live. Her then 4-year-old daughter was sitting in the back seat of the car during the shooting, and afterward police put them both in custody.
In this video authorities just released … Reynolds is still screaming in anger in the back of the police cruiser — and the little girl cries, “Mom, please don’t scream ’cause I don’t want you to get shooted!” She sobbed and continued begging her mother to calm down.
The video was just released because Yanez’s trial ended last week. He was found not guilty of manslaughter.
This is a Classic! This is one video that’s well worth bringing back like a good groove you keep scratching back, on the turntables!

As if Jay Z didn’t have enough on his hands, the hip-hop legend has just shared details on a new album, 4:44. But you won’t be able to buy it or stream it just anywhere.
The album will drop June 30 for subscribers of Sprint or Jay Z’s Tidal platform through what’s pitched as a first-of-its-kind partnership between both companies.
Chatter on a new Hov LP heated up in recent weeks, and the entrepreneur and music man threw fuel on that fire last week with a mysterious campaign which saw the numbers “4:44” and the date “6.30.17” dished up on posters and online.
The plot thickened in the hours before midnight when a teaser video appeared on Tidal. Then the big revealed happened as the clock struck twelve.
The corporate partnership behind the U.S. release is the first in a series of music exclusives, according to a joint statement, and it follows the announcement in January that Tidal sold a 33 percent stake in the company to Sprint for $200 million, giving it access to the telecom company’s 45 million customers. Outside the U.S., 4:44 will be available to stream only on Tidal for now. It’s unclear for how long the exclusive window will last, though Billboard has reached out to reps for comment.
As part of the U.S. campaign, Tidal and Sprint have pledged support to the 1Million Project, an educational initiative from Sprint and the Sprint Foundation that will assist 1 million low-income U.S. high school students who aren’t connected to the Web at home.
News on the surprise album release caps an eventful week during which Jay Z and his wife Beyonce welcomed twins and the artist was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, becoming the first rapper to achieve that honor. The new LP is the followup to 2013’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Beyonce (35) and her husband Jay Z (45) have reportedly welcomed twins to their family. Their daughter, Blue Ivy, is currently 5 years old. So far, the sex of the twins hasn’t revealed, nor have any photos surfaced.
Rapper, actor, and movie producer Ice Cube received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday (June 12) in front of the Musicians Institute on Hollywood Boulevard. Cube was joined by N.W.A. members Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren, who posted a photo on his Twitter with the caption, “Congratulations to @icecube getting his star in Hollywood. Today was a good day.”
Ice Cube, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, first appeared on the scene with the West Coast rap group N.W.A. in the late 1980s. In 1990, he released his first studio album AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted after leaving the group for a solo career.
Cube began his acting career in the 1991 film “Boyz n the Hood,” and later appeared in the hit movie “Friday.” He directed the 1998 film, “The Players Club.” He, later on, switched gears appearing in movies like “Barbershop,” “Are We There Yet?” and the “Ride Along” franchises, which he also produced. He was also a producer of the 2015 N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton.”
Ice Cube, now 47, received the 2,614th star since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961 with the first 1,558 stars.
The ceremony comes just three days after the release of the 25th-anniversary edition of his second album “Death Certificate,” which includes three new songs.
Per reports, less than 24 hours after becoming the 2017 NBA Finals champions, the Warriors have decided to decline the White House visit.
With President Trump in office, there have been many conversations about if athletes should take political stands by choosing to refuse traditional championship White House visits. Many of the Patriot players skipped out on their visit with Trump after winning the Super Bowl.
While no one from the Warriors organization or the White House has released a statement about the report, reporter Shaun King and CNBC analyst Josh Brown have both shared the information.
It should be noted that the Warriors did attend the White House ceremony when Obama held office in 2015 after their Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
