Chicago police chief fired by Rahm Emanuel, is gearing up to challenge him for the mayor

The former police Commissioner Garry McCarthy is planning to run against the man who fired him, mayor Rahm Emanuel.


Former Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, a Democrat, said he was thrown “under the bus” when he was fired, in the year of 2015, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, is expected to release to announce a video Wednesday night, whether he’s running for mayor.

McCarthy, who is a self-proclaimed pro-police, limited-government candidate, is running against the liberal Emanuel, sent shock waves through the City of Chicago, as he fired his own top cop McCarthy.

If McCarthy runs, it will be a very personal race, and some of the fiery political theater, as he fights back against Emanuel, also a Democrat, and President Obama’s former chief of staff of the White house. To help Emanuel stabilized recently of city-wide claims and protests calling for him to resign after he was accused of, mayoral, safe re-election, by a Band that showed that Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke’s shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times. Emanuel, every cover up has denied.

However, in the court of public opinion, Emanuel is still not necessarily the widespread allegation that he kept the tape under lock and key adjusted.

Emanuel was never shot into a lot of detail about the alleged secrecy surrounding the Band, and after initially defending Van Dyke and McCarthy, Emanuel placed, ultimately, blame on the former top-cop and him.

McCarthy, the Band argues, from his hands, and that Emanuel elected to the city Council, to pay fast, the family of the victim millions of dollars.

The mayor’s office not to comment on the McCarthy’s potential announcement. An e-mail address for Emanuel’s re-election campaign yet again, Fox News’ e-mail seeking comment.

The officer involved, the Band, Van Dyke, expects the study on murder charges.

McCarthy’s time as the top cop was not without blemish, but he is credited with significantly reducing crime.

Perhaps the biggest criticism against McCarthy is that he comes from New York and not the actual political experience.
