Cicero cop shooting tied to gun Chicago P.D. should have destroyed | Chicago Sun-Times
"Thirteen years ago, William Stewart Boyd, a Cook County judge, drove to a South Side church to turn in a handgun his late father had owned.
The Chicago Police Department was accepting guns as part of a buyback program meant to take weapons off the streets and help make the city safer.
...The guns are supposed to be destroyed.
But the gun Judge Boyd took in somehow wasn’t.
Instead, it turned up eight years later next to the body of a young man who was shot to death by a Cicero police officer.
The cop — Officer Donald Garrity, who, records show, had a history of discipline problems — is now out of the suburban department and collecting a disability pension as a result of post-traumatic stress he blames on the shooting.
