HOST #1: Pfleger said he hopes Van Dyke receives a sentence that keeps him behind bars for life.

HOST #2: 5th District Congressman Mike Quigley praising the jury in the Van Dyke trial today. He says he respected how they took their work seriously to consider the complicated case.

QUIGLEY: I think at this point what's most important is that Chicago begins to heal its wounds and move forward together. If you’re going to have to live through a tragedy as we've seen here, the most important thing is that we learn from it and we learn to grow together. I think there are some lessons have been learned and I have seen some progress. That has to continue – the greater transparency that has come from this, the reforms that are taking place, the consent decree. But as important as all that is recognizing that there's still more that unites us than divides us we want to work with the law enforcement. We want to make our streets safe. We want to learn to respect each other and move forward together.
