Chicago--------October 19, 2019
Early Thursday morning, October 17, 2019, Chicago Superintendent Eddie Johnson was found slumped over in the driver's seat of his vehicle when an unidentified person saw him and investigated to see what happened. According to news sources, Johnson experienced a "health incident" related to his prescribed medication. However, later sources reported that Johnson spoke with Chicago's mayor, Lori Lightfoot telling her that he was returning home from dinner with friends, where he admittedly disclosed having a couple of drinks.
As a lifelong Chicagoan with a degree in Criminal Justice, I find Mr. Johnson's actions to be in direct conflict with his duties as superintendent. With the ongoing tensions that plague the city (police coverups, increase in shootings, drugs and gang violence) what we can't afford is a leader who's conduct adds to that list of egregious activities! Drinking and driving is against the law, and as we have seen in various social media threads, no one is above the law!
If Johnson doesn't voluntarily step down as the leader of the Chicago Police Department, the citizens of Chicago must demand that he does. Or, will this be another late night coverup?
