Naked Man Shot By Police

Too bad, so sad (Channel 5; Sun Times). If you wrestle with the police, you ought to be shot as a matter of course. It sends a message to the rest of the jackasses out there that fighting with the police is wrong and carries with it extreme penalties. Here's what too many politicians, state's attorneys and (for lack of a better word) civilians forget about police calls for service:

On the scene of EVERY single call for police service is a firearm. And most times, probably 99% of the time, it is brought to the scene by the police officer. Should that officer lose control of that weapon, there is a MAJOR problem. Sure, in a perfect world, all officers maintain control of their weapon at all times, every officer is a big strapping John Wayne type, never intimidated, never backing down, always with the quick quip and quicker martial arts skills to successfully subdue and restrain violent subjects of all stripes in true Hollywood fashion.

Reality is a bit more unforgiving. Coppers aren't all supermen/women. Some are out of shape. Some are less than attentive or situationally aware. Some aren't that physically imposing. Some are (let's be brutally honest here) NOT cut out to be police. If you are confronted by a naked man, you might be a little disconcerted. If that man is attempting to drown himself and a child, you might be driven to act before backup arrives. And if a fight ensues and the naked man is slippery (no clothes equals a lot less places to grab) and getting the upper hand on you and your weapon, damn right he's going to get blasted.

Rascal Scooters is very proud to announce that the 8th district request to donate a rascal scooter to the soon to be demoted watch commander has been approved! No longer will you have to stop to catch your breath walking out and around the station. Just jump on your freshly charged Rascal and scoot yourself right to your awaiting squad car. We look forward to you hitting the streets as the field lieutenant and showing your subordinates just how great of a copper you say you are.

Very well put SCC. The tone of the news reports out so far make the copper sound like an executioner.

It sure sounds like there was a fight for the coppers weapon. Otherwise, I would assume the naked man would be pepper orange all over.

Grab a coppers gun and you put your life at risk. I have to admit I do not know the facts of the case, but it sure sounds like there was a struggle for the weapon and the naked man lost out.

I believe when the investigation is completed, it will reveal there was a violent struggle for the weapon. If that is the case, will the media give an understanding view on the facts? Doubtful.

This blog is silly, If John Stroger sees it he is going to have a stroke! Oh, he must of saw it!


B.T.W. Why haven't we heard about how great Stroger is recovering and how he is up to running the Cook County Board?

Don't you think the Daley crew is hoping to get John "The Vegetable" Stroger elected so they can sneak their guy in? Hell they say Stroger is unable to speak or even pick his nose. Pictures of young naked boys don't even stimulate him anymore. He is down for the count.

The Supt. announce a new way to reduce crime in the city. Have Det. Tommy "Leftisbest" Downs drive his personal car during work hours. The Supt. figures he can "Lose" one bad guy a day who walks in the streets instead of the sidewalks.

Did you see the moronic sister of the offender on TV saying, “Whys did theys have to shoot em in the face? Couldn’t theys shoot em in da arm or leg or sumpen? Theys executed em. Another point, “Why does the news call this jagball a “victim” when he was clearly an offender. Liberal bias as usual.

YOU CAN'T TELL THE TRUTH !!!!!
THE PEOPLE CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO FORM OPINIONS BASED ON THE TRUTH.....IT WOULD OPEN THEIR EYES TO THE WASTE AND CORRUPTION OF PAST POLICIES AND FUTURE CONTROL OF THE POPULACE WOULD BE IN JEPORDY.

Be verrrrrrrry careful of that 8th Dist watch commander. He swallowed a lot of anger in his time. I definately would NOT want to be the subject of his wrath. He'll use you as a pogo stick if you're not careful!

Viva La Fat Lt!

But Matt's a hockey player, so a certain boss took a liking to him and helped him climb the ranks at an accellerated pace. That's the way it goes in this department, no surprises here. If the right people like you, you're on your way up, irregardless of your experience or IQ. It's always been like that. That's why we rarely get any "smart" command decisions, because some of the top bosses aren't the brightest bulbs in the chandelier, and they're usually acting on the orders of clueless politicians anyway. Nothing scares a police boss more than the wrath of an angry alderman, because they don't want to get brick'd and launched from their cushy position to the 1st watch in 003. But I gotta admit that given a chance to be meritoriously promoted over and over again because of the right connections, most of us here would take it and run with it.

It was on the news a few days ago concerning Stroger. He's in bad shape, learning how to talk again, etc. I believe his son said that there will be a decision by June concerning his position and run for election.

The only thing he swallowed was a hole lot of hotdogs and pizza's. It must be shitty to know that everyone in the district doesn't like you. He will never get respect from the watch including the dogs with a hard ass super cop attidude that he can't backup. This job may be his life and everything he does revolves around it, but to force it on everyone else that knows its not legit is crazy. I can't wait to see him hit the streets.

Sorry Lt.

By the way what ever happened with the hole arrest report and complaint changing in court? I heard the judge was a little pissed off.

Tom Downes? Left is the best? Oh no. That's not my nickname for him. It's more like: his "star" is so hug, it lights up the entire milky way.

Now you, well, your star. Do you recall that night when you asked me to service your star?

Yes, we had that wee tiny problem, we shall call it. At least that's what your therapist said.

Now, back to that night when we had that problem. You handed me the phone book and I called the Adler Planetarium and asked to borrow their high zoom telescope.

Sorta like the Hubble Space Telescope to view the Black Hole.

Well, when I asked to borrow that particular item so I could see your "star," they hung up on me!
