Chicago, IL — Tyrone Williams, a leader in the fight for community control of the police in Chicago, was arrested yesterday by the judge in the murder trial of Jason Van Dyke. Van Dyke committed the heinous murder of Laquan McDonald in 2014. Judge Gaughan has repeatedly ordered arrests of community members in the court room for minor infractions, while allowing the defense attorney endless delays to the start of the trial. In this photo, Williams speaks at a Black History Month program about the campaign for an elected civilian police accountability council (CPAC). He is a member of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, as well as Freedom Road Socialist Organization.
