| I've lived all over the US and found that most Americans love liberty but, get fooled into partisan politics. My goal is to wake people up and help them see it's not about left or right -- it's about freedom!



Opinions from Liberty Crier contributors and members are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of The Liberty Crier.

Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthyChicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy said if a concealed carry law passed in Illinois, he expected people lawfully carrying guns in Chicago would be shot by the police.

“You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”


Do they at least have to wait for the gun to become a threat, or do they have carte blanche to start perforating anyone with a gun on the street? They should at least tell the person with the gun they are there and to drop the weapon. A law abiding citizen would not be a threat to officers, so unless they are shooting at anything that spooks them, there shouldn’t be a lot of unnecessary shootings.

McCarthy would not say what specific training officers will undertake if any. However, he did admit that in the past his department has made mistakes in shooting unarmed civilians. He believes the concealed carry law will increase those types of unfortunate incidents.

“Police officers make mistakes all the time,” McCarthy said. “We spend six months in the police academy, six months of field training and ongoing training on a regular basis and the fact is once in a while we’re going to shoot someone with a cellphone; we’re going to shoot somebody with a flashlight and none of that is okay. But now you take John Q. Civilian, you give them six weeks or 10 weeks of training and you say ‘have at it?’”

Did you get that? He actually said cops shoot innocent people all the time. And they’re supposed to be the professionals.

    When I see a “costumed” thug masquerading as an LEO, I feel threatened and fear for my safety. Therefore, i consider it my right to defend myself against any cop who threatens me. If that means shoot first. so be it. This Chicago bastards statements confirms that he belongs on the “citizens target list”.

      I stand with you…NO MORE NAZI POLICE…SHOOT THEJM ALL if they threaten us, as is OUR RIGHT! Cops do NOT have ‘rights’, they only have GRANTED AUTHORITIES that WE THE PEOPLE have GIVEN YOU, and WE can TAKE those authorities back if WE CHOOSE TO, and YOU have NOTHIGN TO SAY ABOUT IT…..WE THE PEOPLE OWN ALL government…ALL of government…YOU are only ‘visiting’!

        I agree with you totally my friend, We must rally our people, as we need a standard to rally around. I would hope that a well known figure steps forward to command our people because they will be dealing with horrendous odds, with Russian, UN, and NATO troops all paid for by the citizens of the world. The travesty is that they arte hired to kill and maim the very same people who have paid for their existence- we must remove their right to exist
        an the entire “terrorist state must be destroyed and broken and leaders must be charged under the “Nurenberg Principles” of law-They do not deserve to exist-
        In order to move forward , we must retrace our steps and find and punish those responsible for 9-11 -Bush and Cheney are already charged with war crimes, However the ” NeoCon ” network is alive and well, and must be destroyed.

    He is going to get people killed because he is an arrogant misfit, He should be removed by the Governor of the state as he has in advance given warning that he not only will violate the law but teach his minions to do so as well-This moron is a walking “time bomb:” for a city already in trouble

    • American Patriot

      I consider his talk to be a DIRECT THREAT to MY SAFETY!
      HANG HIS ASS and ELIMINATE HIM as a TERROR THREAT!

  • American Patriot

    Hey NAI COP!
    If your department shoots ANY member of MY family, YOU BETTER LEAVE THE COUNTRY!
    I WILL hunt YOU down and SHOOT YOU!
    WE THE PEOPLE have a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT, YOU do NOT! You are ONLY carrying a gun because you are an EMPLOYEE of MY STATE or COUNTY, and being an EMPLOYEE, does NOT grant YOU more rights than ANYBODY ELSE…GOT IT??
    Threaten me, and YOU have the problem, not me!
    We will no longer expect you to enforce the law, we now ASSUME YOU are the REAL THREAT and WILL BE DISPOSED OF!
    We will take your gun from you and ELIMINATE YOUR THREAT as a TERRORIST!
    NAZI GESTAPO mentality is going to BE your END OF LIFE by those IGNORANT COMMENTS!!

    Dear Garry McCarthy, your mother is a W H O R E. I’m telling you right up front.

    “We spend six months in the police academy, six months of field training and ongoing training on a regular basis and the fact is once in a while we’re going to shoot someone with a cellphone”

    Which is why, every once in a while when a cop gets his brains blown out, we THROW A PARTY!!!
