It’s safe to say that a lot of work needs to be done in Chicago. The city with some of the strictest gun laws leads the nation in gun violence and murder.
You can thank the corrupt liberal leadership for that. In recent years, Obama’s old pal Rahm Emanuel has been running the city into the ground. His toxic policies have only made it worse.
Now it looks like the very police chief Rahm fired is coming back for vengeance. And he just might get it.
From New York Post:
Former Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy announced plans Wednesday night to run for mayor against the man who fired him after the release of dashcam video showing a white police officer fatally shooting a black teenager.
McCarthy’s announcement, which he made on his campaign website, pits him against Rahm Emanuel in the February 2019 election. Emanuel fired McCarthy in 2015 as an effort to restore public confidence in the police force and his administration, just days after the court-ordered release of the video showing Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times.
“This administration has brought us our failed education system, the overwhelming tax burden on hard-working people, and the violent crime that plagues the entire city,” McCarthy said. “Over the past year, thousands of Chicagoans have approached and encouraged me to run for mayor to fix these problems.”
Thanks to the toxic views of Black Live’s Matter, democrats pit cops as villains. Anytime a black person is confronted by a cop, it’s viewed as racist. Never mind any possibility that the person is breaking the law.
The release of the video was a clear attempt by the left to shame police. They don’t want them equipped to protect our cities. Under McCarthy, murders actually declined in Chicago. Guess what happened the year after he was fired? They soared to 762. A new record!
Clearly, Rahm has a mess on his hands. Chicago is in free-fall, with no evidence it will get better.
McCarthy is in a good position to challenge the Obama lackey. With the city struggle as it is, he can promise a better direction.
It seems like McCarthy has a good reputation among Chicago residents. He can definitely give Rahm a run for his money.
But be certain it will be a fight. Rahm has plenty of support from established Democrats. He will pull out every dirty trick in the book to beat McCarthy.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
