A week before Laquan McDonald was murdered by Chicago police officer who fired 16 rounds into him on a video hidden for over a year, another Chicago police officer appears to have killed another victim, Ronald Johnson, in very similar style. And there's a dash-cam video which captured that shooting, which the Chicago police department, and assumingly, mayor Rahm Emanuel kept secret for that murder as well. And the Cook County state's Attorney, Anita Alvarez has stated that they are investigating murder charges in against the police officer in the second shooting.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

"In response to questions from the Tribune, the city's Law Department said Tuesday afternoon that the city was "currently re-examining" when the video of Ronald Johnson III's shooting should be released even though the incident was still under investigation by the Independent Police Review Authority, which looks into allegations of police misconduct.
At a news conference Tuesday, lawyers for Johnson's family said his shooting was eerily similar to McDonald's. The video shows an officer opening fire within seconds of arriving at the scene as Johnson was moving away from police, they said. And as with the video in the McDonald case, the audio that is supposed to accompany the footage is missing."

The family of Ronald Johnson is disputing the Chicago Police department's claim that he was carrying a gun.

Chicagoans are saying that this second hidden, secret video could be the straw that breaks the camels back, bringing down Rahm Emanuel.
