CHICAGO, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that in breaking news, Chicago police superintendent Garry F. McCarthy has been fired by Mayor Rahm Emanuel Tuesday morning amidst outrage over a video that surfaced involving police brutality, and criticism of how the authorities handled the incident. Anger, criticism, and protests have spread through Chicago ever since footage was released of a city police officer shooting and killing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The incident happened last year, and in the video, the officer is seen firing shots at the teenager even after he had already fallen to the ground. According to The Washington Post, "Emanuel's decision to dismiss McCarthy also coincides with growing public anxiety over a rise in violent crime in Chicago and other big cities across the country." Public awareness has been growing on police brutality cases, and McCarthy is the second head of a major police department to be let go within recent months over incidents involving police officers and fatalities. The Baltimore police commissioner, Anthony Batts, was fired in July by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, saying "he had been a distraction as the city reeled from rioting after the death of Freddie Gray," according to the article in The Washington Post.
