Mayor Lightfoot had to look long and hard to find an incompetent nincompoop to run the Chicago Police Department that would prove so feckless and inept that he (or she) would make “da Mayor” look competent by comparison. She found that man (mark?) in David Brown, pictured above.
Brown hailed from Dallas PD. Word has it that he flies home to Dallas every weekend, so it’s not like his heart was in Chicago. Just his wallet and his left foot.
Given how he’s promoted equally inept “merit” hacks even higher into leadership positions, and run out a few decent people who earned their senior management slots, David Brown owns a lot of the mayhem and chaos that has led to even lower morale than many thought possible. And J-Fled, Gary McCarthy, and Eddie Johnson certainly have one-upped each of their respective predecessors when it came to running the department into the ditch.
WBEZ has the story of Brown readying his lifeboat for an escape from Murder City USA.
Aides to embattled Chicago Police Supt. David Brown have begun preparing a “legacy document” of his accomplishments and goals, apparently laying the groundwork for his exit, a source told the Sun-Times.
With crime the top issue on the minds of Chicago voters, all eight mayoral challengers have vowed to fire Brown. Lightfoot has promised to retain him, and has been denying rumors of his imminent exit since a few months after he arrived from Dallas in 2020.
The police chief needs aides? I could see an administrative assistant, but aides?
For the record, GSL would nominate John Catanzaro as CPD’s new police chief. If the new mayor really wants to lower crime they should be all over Catanzaro. If not, they can hire some other woke candidate who meets multiple intersectional demographics… such as a Satan-worshipping, gay minority pacifist missing a leg who can’t read and insists upon the pronouns of they/them. Have I missed any grievance categories?
