IPRA recommends Dante Servin be fired

Three years ago, Chicago Police Detective Dante Servin shot and killed an unarmed woman — Rekia Boyd — while firing over his shoulder into a crowd. He was off duty at the time. Servin was acquitted of the fatal shooting in April, but yesterday the Independent Police Review Authority recommended he be fired from the force. Servin’s lawyer says IPRA’s ruling is the result of pressure by the media and Boyd's family. Boyd’s brother Martinez Sutton joins us. (AP/File)
