Ramsey Rumors Again
- Former Washington, D.C., police chief Charles Ramsey may be interested in returning to the city where he started his policing career, according to a published report.
- Ramsey told the Chicago Sun-Times that he hasn't decided whether to apply for the top police job in Chicago. But he said he's qualified to succeed Police Superintendent Philip J. Cline, who announced his retirement April 2 amid complaints about the department's handling of misconduct allegations.
- Ramsey, 59, also said he has "a great deal of respect" for Mayor Richard M. Daley and he thinks that planning for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games -- if Chicago wins the honor -- would be an exciting challenge.
How much planning could Ramsey actually do as he'd be mandatoried off the job 4 years or more before the Olympics even got here? Unless he's looking to run any private security start ups that come into being in the next few years? Always an angle somewhere.
