National Bar Assoc: Fire Officials

The National Bar Association released a statement calling for the resignation of two major Chicago officials Wednesday after the release of a video showing Laquan McDonald being shot and killed by police. The organization, the nation's oldest group of Black lawyers and judges, specifically took issue with the year-long delay in filing murder charges against Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke. They call for the resignation of Chicago Police Superintendent Gary McCarthy and Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez.
