CHICAGO--Former Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy says there needs to be more emphasis on stopping criminals than criticizing police.
McCarthy spoke on the WGN-TV Morning News Monday.
He wanted to clarify statements made in a "60 minutes" interview about Chicago street violence.
McCarthy said he is not critical nor does he blame police who are being cautious because of the anti-police climate.
McCarthy says performance-based policing has taken a back seat to politics.
