    Statistics say cops bullets only hit about 18% of the time. So, those are pretty good odds to start with.

    I would take my chances with a CCW in Chicago. The tool acts like CCW holders are just walking around with guns in their hands. Idiot.

    The same reason they don't demand honest and non corrupt politicians.



    Sometimes crap rises to the top.

    His words were unprofessional as well as inappropriate.

    That's the way I read it too. I've eaten lunch and dinner many times armed with my CCW with cops at the next table. I would expect if I took gun in hand and faced them, I'd likely get aerated. Too many cops don't go home because they hesitated. I'll agree though that there are some hot headed cops that pose more of a danger than they prevent.

    McCarthy needs to be careful. If he calls down the thunder, he may get it.

    No, he said a lot more than that. The fact that one line of his tirade wasn't totally insane doesn't excuse the rest of it.

    Chief Mc"shoot-the-streetlights-out"Carthy? :whistling:

    Do tell. Now, when facing a CPD Copper, one would of course want to ride wid da law not agin it. I think the good citizens need not fear too much from the checkered hat group on the streets... white shirts perhaps. Flash mobs for sure.

    Oh heck, avoid Chicago totally unless you're one of those who loves taking risks or has business there. Why give Rahm tourism $ or take a chance shooting another human or twelve and/or getting ventilated in the process?

    The rant was definitely unprofessional. He's the type of hot headed cop I refer to. He's more of a danger than a deterrent. Just the same, it's best to keep your hands exposed, empty and open when confronted by LE. He doesn't know if you're friend or foe and you don't know if he's sane or McCarthy.

    Don't forget he may not represent the views of the rank and file. Didn't the CPD Lieutenants Association come out in favor of concealed carry a couple years back?

    McJersey?

    This is actually one of his more sane moments. Ever read about his off duty brawl with on duty troopers. He was allegedly drunk at the time. During the brawl his gun ended up getting thrown onto the front seat of his car for "safekeeping."

    I wish we could kick the north east corner out of Illinois. Let them be there own utopia of high crime and restrictive gun laws. They could call it "Chicago Land" and it would be the happiest place on earth.

    Keep in mind Rahm has his hand up his butt moving his lips.

    Bingo. This bozo wants to boomerang back to NYC one day as Commisioner. So now he is making all the right noises.

    There are a couple of Chi town cop blogs. GaRRRRRRRRy is universally despised on them.
