The rank and file voted no confidence in Police Chief Eddie Johnson so it was time for him to go.

He announced his retirement today focusing on the fact that he reached out to Black Lives Matter and other activist groups to help him run the department. That was his first mistake. He said he embraced community policing with the Police Community Task Force lead by leftist Mayor Lightfoot. She wants hands-off on illegals and spoke against President Trump in bitter terms during the press conference on Johnson’s retirement:

Lightfoot said Johnson showed President Trump what true character looks like be refusing to stand on stage with a president who “villainized our city’s values.”

Johnson’s fellow officers also recently saw him sleeping in his car at a stop sign:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot recently told the Chicago Sun-Times that Johnson — following the Oct. 17 sleeping incident — confessed to her that he had “a couple of drinks with dinner” before getting behind the wheel that night.

“I know what the superintendent told me, which is that he was…changing medication…He’d been out to dinner with some folks. He told me he was driving home,” Lightfoot said to the newspaper. “He felt ill and pulled over to the side of the road, which he believed was the prudent thing to do…[Internal Affairs Divison] will sort out the rest.”

Also, the controversy over his refusal to appear with President Trump was frowned upon by his fellow police officers.

Johnson spoke today against police officers who would rely on “prejudice and intimidation”
