Gee, despite all the flak we took, that rumor seems to be rolling right along:
- The No. 2 official in the Chicago Police Department announced his retirement Tuesday to become police chief at Northeastern Illinois University as the department braces for more fallout from the Laquan McDonald scandal.

The good news is he already has Ed's phone number.
