Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy is feeling the blow-back from his rather unhinged comments targeting law-abiding gun owners and the Second Amendment.
According to Michael Sneed, McCarthy was criticized on Monday at a private meeting of five members of the City Council’s Black Caucus, who "dumped on" McCarthy and concluded he's arrogant. On Thursday four members of the Black Caucus, headed by Ald Howard Brookins, met with Rahm Emanuel’s intergovernmental chief Matt Hynes and "expressed frustration dealing with McCarthy."
State Sen Kwame Raoul (D), who is pushing for stiffer gun control legislation, told Sneed: "This is not a police problem alone. This is a criminal justice systems problem.” And the Rev. Jimmy Daniels, who heads the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church concluded "the problems are the parents … absent parents. The gun alone doesn’t shoot people. People shoot people.”
