Is it time for McCarthy to go?

As the new chairman of the city council's Black Caucus, 6th Ward Alderman Roderick Sawyer has been making some waves:
The chairman of the City Council's Black Caucus, Alderman Roderick Sawyer, told FOX 32 News that his group may call for firing Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.

African-American aldermen plan to meet Wednesday afternoon. Sawyer told FOX 32 that a majority of his colleagues want a new top cop.

South Side Ald. Roderick Sawyer said a series of conversations with his City Council colleagues in the last two days showed that "there is great discontent with Supt. McCarthy."
The Fox Chicago article above noted an editorial from Crain's. I wanted to excerpt from it, but it would be more beneficial if you go over to Crain's to read it yourself. That editorial says it's time for McCarthy to go.

The main thing to ask is whether or not you think it's time for him to go?
