CHICAGO -- It was an angry Black Caucus addressing the media this morning, once again calling for the firing of police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.

They're taking it up a notch saying at the next city council meeting they will introduce a resolution of no confidence in his leadership and officially call for his ouster.

They also called for a more clear and transparent process saying they know there are more Laquan McDonald's out there.

The 15 black aldermen also vowed to work with other caucuses within the city council to review the Fraternal Order of Police contract to make sure that it includes tougher sanctions and policies when it comes police misconduct.

But when asked why they approved a $5 million settlement with the family of Laquan McDonald without seeing the video all say they were misled by the Emanuel administration about what the video showed.

They are even calling for an independent prosecutor saying they have no confidence that Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez can be impartial.

They also praised the young men and women who protested peacefully for the most part last night and encouraged more people to get involved in the electoral process by getting out and voting.
