Details Safe for Now
New Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s campaign trail idea of taking away Ald. Ed Burke’s security detail to put a few more Chicago police officers on the streets won’t be coming to fruition.
The mayor’s handpicked police superintendent, Garry McCarthy, said today that he can’t pull back Burke’s police bodyguards.
“It's mandated by a court,” McCarthy said. “So I don't have the authority to change a court decision.”
Oh wait - it must have been Judge Ann Burke, right?
