Would Trump Tap McCarthy As Chicago U.S. Marshal?

There may be a move afoot to urge President Trump to appoint former Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy as U.S. Marshal in Chicago, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. A Republican source tells the newspaper that appointing McCarthy, who is highly experienced with a wide background in policing, would be selecting a strong U.S. Marshal who is no fan of Mayor Rahm Emanuel (who fired McCarthy).

Said the source: “McCarthy has the will and grit to attack the problem. He’s a cop’s cop. The rank and file had great respect for him, and he was kicked to the curb.” Law enforcement experts are speculating that McCarthy could assemble a cadre of retired Chicago Police detectives who could be sworn in as special deputy marshals to saturate violent areas of Chicago, where crime — especially violent crime — has spiked. There was no indication that McCarthy, who now is working in the private sector and has a family to support, would consider such an offer.
