Please don't name names, but can anyone give a thumbs up/thumbs down on how the dispatchers on zone 6 did, particularly in the first 2 minutes?

Again, not looking for names, just wondering if they responded quickly, calmly and in a manner that would get every possible resource responding.

Godspeed to the wounded PO.

"Officer Wounded" (in 007)

Then the first two posts come from idiots. This "I'm first" crap is really juvenile.

I am ashamed that I may work with adults who can post such shallow, meaningless crap, particularly when a police officer is shot.

Just came from the scene of the HBT, P.O. is gonna be fine, he has a graze to the wrist. CFD hellicopter responded with the night sun light, but were sent back to quarters minutes after thier arrival. Suspect is in a first floor abandoned bar, not sure if he put a bullet in his own head already. Took SWAT 2hrs to take over the scene, the excessive amount of hair gel slowed thier arrival time.

Been listening to CW6 reagarding the shooting. Since the scene was turned over to HBT, the radio has been silent. Unknown the status of the offender at this point.

Anonymous tipsters said the bad guy made it out of the original building and into a house on Peoria. When the first squad car went to check the address on Peoria the lights were turned out just as they arrived. So it's not known for sure if he's still in the first place he darted into (on Halsted) or at the Peoria address. That's where it stood when I left work just after 2300. The suburban police (Evergreen and Hometown) helped block intersections as the convoy of CFD ambulance with police escort went straight to Christ hospital as fast as possible. The officer is gonna be okay, thank God.

Two offenders in custody as of a few minutes ago. they surrendered and are heading to the area. SWAT clearing the house as we speak. The reason the radio went quiet SWAT operates on their own comms and only uses the CW to update as to operational moves for the safety of all on scene

This Officer thanks you for the update, it was worth the wait. Glad all turned out well. Sounds like good Police work.
Stay safe.

Officers respond to a shots fired call..park in the rear of an abandoned bar..hear someone kick in the rear door of the bar and gain entry. Officers relocate to the front of the bar..offender shoots through the front window of the bar striking the officer in the wrist. Offender tries to escape through the rear but an assist unit arrives at the same time..offender shoots at them but misses..barricades himself inside... 4 hours later SWAT and HBT are ABOUT to make entry when the offender runs out and gets tased. TASER, TASER, TASER!!

02:20:01...you have no idea what you are talking about. I was at the scene from about 3 minutes after it happened until about 0230 hrs and it's obvious you were not there and believe every rumor you hear. P.O. is fine and 2 shitbags in custody. Nobody tried to run out the back door and nobody got tased. Bar wasn't abandoned and the offender went into an apartment, not the bar

Well maybe besides the condition of no name officer should be the only thing discussed right now on the blog. All this attention to " details" goes to court someday
why don't we let our officers have a fighting chance in court.
MUMS the word boys and girls
cut the chit chat!

I hear, as of right now, the dicks and the POs are all still working on it. You guys who know it all, and even some of you who were there, are COMPLETELY fucking up the facts.

Stop posting any details on here. So you think you know what happened? GREAT. Now -- Shut your fucking mouths. Keep to Seiser and the rest of the pussy ass bullshit you post.

I'm completely fucking embarrased by you dilldos.

It sounds to me like all the officers on the scene did a good job. Forget the bickering between units (district vs. HBT etc). We are all blue. Lets just be happy the officer injured is going to take a few days off and return happy and healthy

One of the things that this PO is in store for is a visit and MANDATORY meeting with the Department shrink. I had to go after my partner and I got into an INCIDENT as they call it.

So who do I have to talk with? A flaming alternative lifestyle person who wants to know how do I feel?

One of the most bizarre conversations of my life with someone who absolutely had not clue.

Counseling leaves alot to be desired. Shocking what they are not connected into. Was there a cops cop that what also highly educated, that our well thought out department removed? When sh%t really works for cops on this job Fort Kool Aid always has a tainted presescription to fix it and not to our betterment.

The dept. does not actually have a shrink aka psychiatrist that would be a psychologist with a Doctorate title. Dept. isn't dispensing meds any time soon. Were counselor friendly.

Oh but wait, what about Columbine or the Hollywood Bank Robbery?

Only one of the Hollywood guys was a non minority. And being able to find isolated incidents of gun crimes by non minorities doesn't buoy your example. The vast majority of gun crimes ARE committed by minorities. Reply when you have facts to defend your position.

I, too, was on the scene of the "barricade" incident. SWAT DID NOT take two hours to arrive and did a great job of removing 6 women from inside the building without incident and taking an offender into custody with turning it into fodder for the liberal media (and NO, I am not a member of the unit, nor do I know any of these officers. Much better to take a little longer with the outcome that came about than be splashed all over the papers that "overkill was used.
