While every American citizen has the right to due process, this is a case that is open and shut.

Jason Van Dyke, the Chicago police officer who shot Black teenager, Laquan McDonald 16 times, not only “failed to sync the MICS,” so that during certain times audio could not be used, but he is also being accused of intentionally destroying his patrol car dash-cam on numerous occasions.

According to a report obtained by DNAinfo Chicago, he and other officers in the area totaled 1,800 of the maintenance logs that showed the tampering of dash-cams.

In less than a year, from September 2014 to July 2015, there were 90 recorded instances of microphones missing from police cars. On 30 other occasions, audio recording on dashcams had either not been turned on, or had been “intentionally defeated,” DNAinfo reported.

Van Dyke, who was seen shooting McDonald on a dash-cam that was not his own, does not have the cleanest of backgrounds. There have been multiple complaints filed on the former officer, which would only show reasoning as to why he would want his dash-cam broken and no microphone collecting sound.
