Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson fired by Mayor Lori Lightfoot

By Greg Norman | Fox News

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was fired Monday a few weeks before his planned retirement -- the stunning early dismissal by Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued alongside a stinging rebuke of the city's former top cop that cited his "ethical lapses" and "intentionally dishonest" answers regarding a controversial October incident.

The ignominious end to Johnson's tenure comes a few weeks after he announced plans to retire at the end of the year. His decision to leave the job came amid intense scrutiny of an Oct. 17 encounter in which police officers reportedly found Johnson asleep in his car at a stop sign. Lightfoot later said Johnson confessed to her he had “a couple of drinks with dinner” before getting behind the wheel that night, and the incident was still being investigated as of Monday.

"Upon a thorough review of the materials of the Inspector General’s ongoing investigation, it has become clear that Mr. Johnson engaged in a series of ethical lapses that are intolerable," Lightfoot said in a biting statement Monday. "Mr. Johnson was intentionally dishonest with me and communicated a narrative replete with false statements regarding material aspects of the incident that happened in the early morning hours of October 17."

She added: "Had I known all the facts at the time, I would have relieved him of his duties as superintendent then and there."

So, does he lose his retirement if he gets canned before he retires?

Where did he stand on the Jussie Smolette case?

Pretty sure he was pissed that Foxx broad threw out the Smollett case.  Chicago cops were all pretty ticked off about it.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
