- Some Cook County and Chicago leaders say they're not satisfied with Mayor Rahm Emanuel dismissing Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.
The mayor announced McCarthy's firing Tuesday amid an outcry about a newly released video showing a white Chicago police officer fatally shooting a black teenager 16 times.
Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin says a federal investigation is needed and the firing is a "necessary but insufficient first step." Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa also called for an independent investigation.
Service Employees International Union Healthcare Illinois Vice President Greg Kelley called for Emanuel and Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez, who brought charges against Jason Van Dyke last week, to resign.
But U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said that police and the community need to "build a relationship based on mutual trust and respect."
The Chicago Teachers Union said it supported Emanuel's move.
