A look back- Chicago Police Chief: Booze, Guns and Abuse of Authority

Chicago’s Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, the 4-star chief. He was quoted on a radio show last week saying he would train his officers to shoot licensed civilians with guns. Nice guy, eh?

“Booze, Guns, and Abuse of Authority”

It seems Chicago’s Police Chief doesn’t have a lot of friends out there.  We received tips from multiple sources about the following:

 

Reprinted from NYPD Rants via Newark Speaks.com:

1. Gary McCarthy was found “guilty” in March 2006 over an traffic altercation he had in 2005 with two New Jersey police officers. A traffic court judge ruled that Gary McCarthy had blocked vehicular traffic with his police-issued car while he and his wife confronted two plainclothes members of the Palisades Interstate Police at a gas station along the Palisades Interstate Parkway. The officers in question had just issued a summons to McCarthy’s 19-year-old daughter, who was driving another car and became verbally confrontational toward the two police officers whom in essence were enforcing the law. When Gary McCarthy had arrived on scene he was clearly irate and violently confrontational and had to be grabbed by the two police officers whom also confiscated McCarthy’s firearm and handcuffed him as well as restrained his wife when she attempted to grab the gun from the two police officers. The judge fined McCarthy $200 for blocking traffic.

NOTE: Had this incident occurred in New York City to an NYPD Police Officer the individual in question would be charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Governmental Administration, Assault on a Police Officer, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon. That is not even including the possibility of driving while intoxicated. Now mind you that is just the charges faced by an average civilian. McCarthy was acting as representative of the New York City Police Department so imagine when the next incident occurs, in what capacity is he going to be acting in Newark Police Director?

2. McCarthy’s wife Regina – was charged with “unreasonable noise” – when she verbally abused and cursed at the Palisades Park Police during the entire incident. Most disturbing is the fact that she had attempted to retrieve Gary McCarthy’s confiscated firearm from an Official Police Vehicle while Gary McCarthy was fighting with one officer. Regina McCarthy had to be physically thrown to the ground as she fought with the officer over the firearm and rear cuffed face down on the ground. My question is what was her intention if she had obtained complete control of that weapon which was a 9mm handgun? Was she going to shoot the officers, break Gary McCarthy free, or just hold the officers at gun point? That is a very, very, frightening thought to comprehend!

3. McCarthy acknowledged he had had two glasses of wine at dinner hours before, but said he was not drunk. He also acknowledged that it was Regina who had backed the NYPD’s black Ford Explorer into the gas station against oncoming traffic. My question here is why was a non-certified civilian driving an “Official NYPD Police Vehicle” when she was not trained by the NYPD Drivers Training Unit as required by the NYPD Patrol Guide for all Line and Duty Officers? The bottom-line is she had no permission to operate the said vehicle! Is she going to be doing this with Newark Police Vehicles as well?

    Corruption is a requirement of the Left.

    Which reminds me, this is the second time in American history when we had a holiday that nobody could celebrate — President’s Day.

    Regina isn’t pronounced the way you think it is. The correct pronunciation rhymes with something else.

    If his “officers” kill someone, he has just admitted to premeditated murder.

    Another drunken bully who would have prospered in the Gestapo.

    I don’t know how Chicago ended up with this POS known as “Streetlight McCarthy.” But then again Chicago is also known among the majority of Illinois residence residing outside its shit infested confines of Crook County as simply, SHITcago!

    Of course, this type of attitude only comes from the knowledge that your city has the most restrictive firearm policy in the country and you have nothing to fear if you start shooting civilians because there is a very good chance, they won’t be shooting back.

    Do you think the police chiefs of Dallas, TX or Boise, ID would take this attitude?

    Pisses me of that the asshole is “Irish” but not in the traditional Irish Cop sence. He is obviously a brute. Chicago has fallen a long way from Chief O.W. Wilson, the father of modern police administration. Wilson was studied by modern police students all over the world. He tried hard to separate politics from law enforcement. But obviously that failed in ultra modern ,liberal New york and Chicago. At least Chicagoians cannot blame the Republicans for their entire government is saturated with left wing progs: Gary McCarthy is just one, a willing Nazi. Fu*k him and the donkey he rode in on.

    Stranded, I am not sure about Dallas. The larger a city is the more Dems take hold from all the takers hanging around. It’s no bastion of traditional Texas attitude.

    Last time I gave a bid to the city, we (me and all other bidders) had to sit through a meeting about all the PC hoops regarding the racial makeup of our employees and such. Papers MUST be filed. Lots and lots of papers. Why? Can’t be good is all I came up with.

    I have no faith that the city itself would take any stand I would want them to.
