Mark Clements, a victim of police torture who confessed to a crime he did not commit when he was 16 and was wrongly incarcerated for it for 28 years, speaks about his experiences with the Chicago Police and the effect it has had on his life during protests on Michigan Avenue, Chicago's "Magnificent Mile" and longest shopping street, to protest three days after the release of a dash cam video documenting the killing of Laquan McDonald by Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke, who has been charged with his murder, on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, in Chicago, Illinois on November 27, 2015.  Van Dyke fired 16 shots at McDonald and fired 13 of those shots after McDonald was on the ground and only stopped after his colleague told him to stand down; a journalist for outlet DNA Info sued the City of Chicago for release of the dash cam video, which the city released only after ordered to do so by a judge last week.
