"Booze, Guns, and/or Abuse of Authority" Had the traffic incident occurred in NYC the individual who had acted in that manner toward an officer as McCarthy had would be charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Governmental Administration, Assault on a Police Officer, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon. Not even including the possibility of DWI and the vehicle ticketed and towed with McCarthy's license confiscated until a hearing determined if it should be returned as with the vehicle. Departmentally he should have been charged with Official Misconduct, Abuse of Authority, had his firearm removed and placed into what is referred in the NYPD as the FARM Program for NYPD employees with alcohol abuse problems. Also in question is who was actually driving the vehicle that the McCarthy's pulled up in? If Regina McCarthy had backed the NYPD’s Ford Explorer into the gas station against oncoming traffic, why was a non-certified civilian driving an "Official NYPD Police Vehicle" when she was not trained to do so by the NYPD Drivers Training Unit located at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn New York? Regina McCarthy had no permission to operate the vehicle and it is NOT FOR PERSONAL USE! That is Abuse of Authority, Corruption, and a serious Integrity issue within the NYPD! Civilians are NOT PERMITTED IN NYPD VEHICLES WITHOUT PERMISSION. McCarthy had lied previously and denied reports that he had been reprimanded by the NYPD after he had gotten into an physical altercation with a off duty NYPD Sergeant at a cop bar in the Bronx on City Island the night he was appointed deputy commissioner a few years back. On a separate incident McCarthy who was also out drunk again on City Island one evening was shooting out street lights with other police officers one of whom was McCarthy’s brother whom is a New York State Trooper. When McCarthy was confronted by an NYPD Sgt concerning the shooting incident McCarthy had retaliated against the officer later on especially when the Sgt. insisted on pursuing the shooting incident as a criminal matter. Needless to say the incident was quietly swept under the rug by the NYPD! Raymond W. Kelly let Garry McCarthy skate after the New Jersey incident; So Gary was back up to his old tricks again. He involved himself in another car stop, this one involved the arrest of a relative in Manhattan for DWI. When a cop on the midnight tour of the Manhattan North Task Force pulled the relative over, the relative telephoned McCarthy but the cop refused to speak to him. Interestingly enough almost identical to his daughter Kyla's incident. Instead, after consulting with his Sergeant and Lieutenant, the cop arrested the relative of McCarthy. McCarthy was not happy. He began calling the borough commander, Assistant Chief Raymond Diaz, to have the cop, Sergeant and Lieutenant transferred. Behind-the-scenes negotiations with a union trustee ultimately produced a back-door apology. Only a few months ago McCarthy again involved himself in the Manhattan North Task Force car stop. This time, it involved a friend of his who was summonsed by a cop for talking on his cell phone while driving. When the cop asked McCarthy’s friend why he had been talking while driving, the friend answered,“Because I got a fucking phone call.” Again, McCarthy was not happy, he attempted to have the cop transferred. The cop, however, comes from a police family. A relative is an inspector. So far there have been no transfers. Neither McCarthy nor the Task Force Captain, William Crossan would comment on the case. As a finalist for superintendent of Chicago's PD, McCarthy told that city's police board that, two decades earlier in 1983, he and his brother had been menaced by toughs holding a Doberman as they returned to the 46th Precinct station house in the Bronx after the St. Patrick's Day parade. McCarthy said he might have placed his hand on his gun acknowledging that that conduct was inappropriate but accepted.

This guy is nothing but white trash garbage from NYC. Send him back Corey, or he will doom your re-election chances.

All of theses fine publicsevants running around looking for a job and we get this!! This man appaears to be a time bomb waiting to explode. It appears he likes to "show off" his police authority, with arrogance, to the detriment of others. It appears he is trying to act like God with his appointed powers. This will not work in Newark.. I would like to put him on the streets of Newark alone, with that type of attitude, on an eqaul basis with the thugs of the community. We will see who is tough then. Maybe after such an altercation, he will appreciate his job, his co-workers and the citizens of the community better. A little to a lot of life threatening "fear" always bring people back to earth.

this is the same guy that the hispanic law enforcement & 100 black men who care won a law suit against. The city council & the Mayor Booker were aware of this it was sent to them. The law suit cost New york millions for racial policy that he wrote. Now he is costing Newark money by wrongful firing officers. He takes credit for reducing crime its the officers that work the streets that keep the city safe. The tax payers of the city are the ones that suffer. They should know where their money is going to pay lawsuits made by McCarthy. He needs to go drunk with power among other things

I worked with Gary McCarthy in the 46th Pct. in the 1984-85. He was an active and dedicated police officer who you could always depend on during those violent times. If he was giving any breaks by the NYPD it was because of his unfailing commitment to the NYPD and the public it serves. All I can say is he has little patience for whiners and back stabbers. He is a "in-your-face" crime fighter who was feared on the mean streets of the South Bronx.

Garry is a top noch police officer. He is THE BEST choice for Mayor Emmanuel. You all need to back off, you have no idea. We all see the bad things hes done. How about Newark's dropping crime rate? No murders in the month of March 2010? He is the best for Chicago.
