    Could someone who knows about law explain some things to me pls

    - "Jason Van Dyke testified that McDonald was advancing on him and ignoring his orders to drop a knife. Video showed the 17-year-old crumpling to the ground in a hail of 16 bullets as he walked away from officers." If he had shot him when he was walking towards them with the knife instead of away from them, would the cop have had a chance to get off on self-defence or would he still likely be charged with the minor offences for shooting 16 times like a spastic? I mean it's not like he was in a s---t out.

    - Jurors Friday also convicted Jason Van Dyke of 16 counts of aggravated battery for shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times. Does any shooting murder in the U.S count the number of bullets as aggravated battery? The 2015 Paris attacks had 130 victims killed with multiple automatic rifles. I have no idea how many bullets in total were shot but would something like that include hundreds or thousands of counts of aggravated battery, one for each bullet in the U.S?

    - Van Dyke was charged with first degree-murder in the October 2014 killing, a charge that requires a finding that the shooting was unnecessary and unreasonable. Wait is there a higher murder charge than first degree? I mean in the case of school shootings or serial killers for example, not only are those "unnecessary and unreasonable" but they're also deliberate/intentional and pre-planned. "unnecessary and unreasonable" sounds like "oops went a lil too far there lol"

    Just to be clear, this system is still broken. This isn’t the system working, it’s the system failing.
