The Cook County Judge overseeing the murder case against Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke grilled a city lawyer Thursday over whether her request to keep some 240,000 emails from public view violated Mayor Rahm Emanuel's pledge to be more transparent.

The judge overseeing the murder case against Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke grilled a city lawyer Thursday over whether her request to keep some 240,000 emails from public view violated Mayor Rahm Emanuel's pledge to be more transparent.

The sharply worded questions from Judge Vincent Gaughan led Lisette Mojica, an assistant corporation counsel, to finally admit that as far as she knew, Emanuel hadn't been consulted.

As is his practice, Gaughan then went into his chambers for closed-door discussions with lawyers in the hot-button case that lasted nearly 50 minutes.

After returning to court, Gaughan said a tentative arrangement had been reached over the disputed emails, but he said he was not going to reveal the details because it had not been finalized.

The emails from the Chicago police and the police oversight agency had been turned over to the city's Office of Inspector General as part of its investigation into Van Dyke's fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald and a possible cover-up involving other officers at the scene. A dashboard camera video of the shooting showed Van Dyke opening fire within seconds of exiting his police SUV as McDonald walked away with a knife in his hand, contradicting many of the officers' written accounts that the teen had lunged at police with the knife.

Why does every newspaper and reporter point out that the cop was white and the other guy is black? When it's black on white or black on black no mention of race, ever. They won't even describe the rapist, murderer, robber as black when he's still on the loose. But a white guy does something to a black guy and the newspapers go gaga. What the fuck?

Bye bye JVK. Maybe you and the cops involved in that stolen car ramming squad cars incident and the off duty sergeant who smoked the funeral coon in MTG can all hook up at bourbon street for gator bites when you're all fired for being stupid.
