Weis disagreed with the governor's comments about crime in the city, and Mayor Daley has come to his defense.
"Jody Weis is a great superintendent. He's been here since February. He did not bring guns gangs and drugs in. [It's as] simple as that. Everybody looks for scapegoats to kick down the street," Daley said.
Both Daley and Weis said they would welcome any help that state police would offer.
