Wow a Chicago cop said this? I R O N Y!!!
“If there was a special interest influencing police work, I believe that would be called corruption,” McCarthy said. “So, if it has to do with donating money, versus a popular vote, I think we have a bigger problem in this country and someone has to wake up to that.”
Gun rights advocates seized on the comments, saying that McCarthy was blaming the city’s gun violence on donors and lobbyists who advocate for the Second Amendment.
So not only is he against the 2nd Amendment, but his complaints against petition of government and donating to political causes is pretty anti first Amendment as well. Anti-freedom, not anti gun.
Also interesting that a Police Chief serves at the pleasure of the Mayor, so a POLITICIAN can have a Chief removed, or replaced at any time. By his definition that’s “Corruption”. Pot, meet kettle!
Despite having some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, Chicago saw more than 500 homicides last year for the first time since 2008, and some 43 murders took place in January. That has prompted several pro-gun rights groups to say it proves new gun control measures aren’t the answer.
Less guns, more crime! And last for more stupid irony:
“When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin,” McCarthy said, referring to the Florida teen who was shot and killed last February by a neighborhood watch volunteer, sparking controversy across the country. “I say Trayvon Martin because the answer to guns is not more guns, and just simply putting guns in people’s hands is going to lead to more tragedy.”
What’s that on your hip officer? How about those guys behind you? What’s in your patrol cars?
If guns are so bad, why do we let self-labeled “Corrupt” cops have them?
