A judge in Chicago is expected to decide soon if the court will release a graphic dashcam video of the shooting death of Laquan McDonald.
Those who have seen the video say it depicts an execution-like killing and argue it could lead to unrest in the city, similar to ongoing protests in cities like Baltimore, where Freddie Gray died in police custody in April.
McDonald was shot by a police officer 16 times in 2014. He was 17 at the time.
