Someone is Taking Time on This One
After all the video training, after all the speeches at roll calls, after the Department hammering it into everyone's head about getting from point A to point B safely, even in emergency situations, we still have one of these:
- Two Chicago police officers were hurt Saturday when their squad cars collided in Old Town. The collision happened Saturday morning on Chicago Avenue near Wells Street. The officers were responding to a call for assistance with their cruisers' lights and sirens on. Both were hospitalized in stable condition.
We understand it was a 10-1. Everyone wants to get to a 10-1 and make sure everyone goes home safe. But now we're two cars short at the 10-1 and god forbid you kill someone, or worse, get killed responding, because the Department won't back you a single iota if you are wrong.
