Meet the New Boss?
- Sneed hears Mayor Daley is reportedly poised to name a new Chicago Police superintendent — and it may be a shocker.
The guy is not a cop and he’s not African American.
Word is J.P. “Jody” Weis, the special agent in charge of the FBI field office in Philadelphia, may be Chicago’s next top cop.
The Chicago Police Board recommended three names to Daley on Wednesday after months of screening since the retirement of Police Superintendent Phil Cline.
None of the men selected was from within the ranks of the Chicago Police Department, which has been beset with racial tension and corruption in the CPD’s Special Operations Unit.
Or maybe they're just easy to put in positions of power and then push around like this Hoffman guy who got emasculated by Daley's hand-picked review board over the Annunzio firing.
