Ex-Chicago Cop Who Killed Laquan McDonald Attacked In Prison

The wife of a white Chicago police officer who fatally shot black teenager Laquan McDonald says her husband has been assaulted by inmates in his cell at a Connecticut prison.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Tiffany Van Dyke says Jason Van Dyke had been placed in the prison’s general population before being assaulting. She told the newspaper that she and others “are all petrified and in fear for Jason’s life.”

She says her husband “was never supposed to be in general population” and that she wants the situation “rectified immediately.”

The newspaper says Van Dyke was transferred Feb. 5 from Rock Island County Jail in Rock Island, Illinois, to the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.

A spokesperson for the Connecticut prison wasn’t available for comment Wednesday night.

Van Dyke had been kept out of the Illinois jail’s general population.

Van Dyke was convicted of second-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in October for McDonald’s 2014 shooting.

How does it feel to be assaulted? Doesn’t feel too good does it?
