Can remember when Eddie Johnson was hired. Emmanuel was desperate to calm the black community in Chicago after the McDonald murder/clusterfuck came to light. Johnson was hired from within the department primarily because he was respected/liked by the rank and file. (And the fact that he was African-American prolly also played a role in the decision.)Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Johnson "was intentionally dishonest with me" following an incident in October.www.nbcnews.com
Eddie Johnson fired. He was Chicago's Police Chief. It looks like he fell asleep in his car after drinking and then lied about it to the mayor. It's an example though of where someone who's a law enforcer turns into a law breaker, and Chicago is definitely known for trouble.
