overboard. you know, and he abused his authority. and i don't believe the force was necessary. >> reporter: van dyke becomes the first ever on-duty chicago police officer to be charged with murder. >> jason van dyke will be judged in the court of law. that's exactly how it should be. >> reporter: and the mcdonald family has already reached a $5 million settlement with the city. they are calling for peace. van dyke is being held without bond. alex perez, abc news, chicago. >> and just north of there things turned tense in minneapolis during a tenth night of protests against a police shooting. a man jumped a barrier and was quickly detained. earlier in the day hundreds of demonstrators marched on behalf of jamar clark, who was killed by a police officer. his funeral is later today, and the family has asked for peace. three people have been arrest for shooting into a crowd of protesters monday night. on one of the busiest travel days of the year the nation is on high alert over worries of a possible paris-style copycat
