Spike Lee said of the situation in Chicago that “more heads are gonna roll,” referring to the firing of the police superintendent on Tuesday.
Director Spike Lee gave a lukewarm review of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel at the premiere of “Chi-Raq” Tuesday night.
The outspoken filmmaker said “more heads are gonna roll” as he and “Chi-Raq” cast members prepared to march in an anti-gun violence march after the film’s debut.
Emanuel has been taking heat over the long-delayed release of surveillance video that showed a white Chicago cop shooting black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times last year.
The mayor fired the city’s police superintendent Tuesday — just days after the chilling video was finally made public.
Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel has received criticism for taking so long to release surveillance video that showed a white Chicago cop shooting black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times last year.
The police leader “is not going to be the only one,” Lee said, according to NBC4 New York.
McDonald, 17, was gunned down by Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke, who has been charged with first-degree murder.
Chicago actor John Cusack, who appears in “Chi-Raq,” cited political motives for the delay in releasing the video, according to NBC4.
He said he felt that it was withheld until Emanuel got through his reelection for a second term.
“It’s very tragic that information was suppressed for an election cycle,” Cusack said, according to the network.
