OK, now it's the FOP's problem

According to WBBM radio reports, Meeks is calling for a national policy, starting in Chicago, dictating a standard operating procedure for traffic stops, including when you can take your gun out of the holster. Excuse my profanity, but fuck this. This is now, officially, the FOP's problem. Meeks is looking to get cops killed. Newsflash!! There is NO SUCH THING as a routine traffic stop.

On one hand, we have a police sergeant pulling over a car, approaching, then having at least one, maybe two non-uniformed security personnel get out of a 2nd car behind him. The reverend approaches from the first direction to pull a "do you know who I am?" routine. People from two directions, out of their cars, and he's riding 99? Damn right our gun is out of the holster. Damn right we're going to use some coarse language. Damn right we're letting everyone see the gun. Armchair quarterbacking aside, the sergeant has lost control of this traffic stop. He has no tactical advantage whatsoever. No distance, no cover, no backup (on scene), no time to react. This is total FUBAR.

On the other hand, we have a reasonably well known (in the black community) reverend claiming the sergeant said "I know who you are." Claiming the sergeant pointed a gun at him. Claiming the sergeant used bad words. If the traffic stop went down as everyone appears to be describing it, the last two of those don't mean spit. The sergeant was at a tactical disadvantage and had to resort to the final option. Hell, for all we know, he might have claimed he knew who Meeks was in a last ditch effort to stave off Meeks approach and secure an avenue of escape.

Our bet? This is going to be a horseshit investigation and political lynching. How about this question: Who the hell were the off duty CPD (Meek's security) getting OUT of their car BEHIND an officer doing a 10-99 traffic stop? Marvelous way to get yourself shot, don't you think?

From today's Tribune article. "All of the police officers responding to the scene were white," Meeks said.
As far as I know, there are no exclusively white watches in the city. Why didn't the officers of color respond to the request for an assist?

Meeks wants a code of conduct for police officers....how about a code of conduct for Ministers...oh there is one? The ten commandments?Thou shalt not bear false witness??
Meeks is a liar..plain and simple...his ego
is king
size and now he's playing the higher moral ground charade.....talk about accountablility...he had the nerve to say he believes that the Lord sent him this traffic stop so that he could help save his people from being terrorized by the white cops that stop them (paraphrased)
