Police Superintendent Phil Cline had his last day on the job yesterday, capped by a $100 per ticket party over at the Hyatt. He also left behind a final PAX 501 and 54-page PDF touting his work over the last four years. Who's the next superintendent? No one knows. Daley asked the Police Board to go back to the drawing board. As usual, Second City Cop & commenters like to think out loud.
