“The Coward” Will Personally Be On Patrol Tonight In Chicago
Chicago, IL—Police superintendent Jody Weis came out in the sunshine today long enough to tell reporters he was personally going out on patrol in the inner city tonight in light of the nasty violence of the last 24 hours.
I can’t help but believe this is just cheap publicity stunt to mitigate his running away from an in progress shooting homicide where the killer escaped two weeks ago. Weis has to somehow replace the image he left with the public with a new one perhaps of him actually arresting and frisking someone.
The official complaint of Weis’ cowardice from retired sergeant John Northen will not be erased from departmental history at least for decades. It will be a big part Weis’ pathetic legacy.
I know the officers on patrol want no part of this dog and pony show and will consider the superintendant’s efforts now a major hindrance rather than help. There will also be real concern for reporters getting hurt covering Weis’ theatrical endeavor.
