Cop Hurt Update

  • Two Chicago police officers on bike patrol were injured Sunday while attempting to chase down a robbery suspect on downtown streets.
  • The officers — one male and one female — suffered injuries during the chase and were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The female officer suffered an asthma attack and is being held overnight for observation. The male officer was treated for minor injuries and released, Klich said.
The asthma turned out to be a heart attack.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery officer.

Personally, I'm surprised that this hasn't happened more often, or maybe it has and we're just not aware of it. Riding a bicycle with a bullet-proof vest on can't be good for you, especially in the heat.

The bikes a great tool in those congested areas; but the traffic is horrendous. These people just arn't
paying attention;look at the cell phone law and how many are still
"yaking while driving".
How'd the male PO get hurt; hit by a car? Hope their both okay.........

a few weeks ago on zone 10 there was an emergency called regarding a officer struck by a vehicle, not sure whether he was on foot or in car, think it was a narcotics call sign, any info or updates on officers recovery? sounded like a bad incident. never heard anything of it. the offender took off and was caught after a short chase. any info would be appreciated.

backup. what backup. if we had the proper manpower on the street, this chase could have and would have probably ended earlier and these officers may have avoided both being injured.

There is no back-up in 001. Your back-up is you, and your partner ( if you are lucky enough to get one ). It is a horrible place to work.

There is no back up in most districts due to the total alck of manpower! When is the last time the city did any type of mass hiring? 1985? daley is stashing millions for the olympics and of course passing it out to all his friends is it "HUSH MONEY"!

For all non-Police that read this blog 001 is Central as in Central Business District the South Loop. More than likely Ground Zero for any Terrorist Incident. So when you're headng up the elevator to work @ Sears Tower sucking on a StarBucks keep in mind one thing " YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN". Thanks to the Runt & all his lies....

Feel better Office!!!

This is pretty much the truth. You are your own back-up 90% of the time. All these jagoffs who come here cuz they are done. Not that the place is anything like 11, 7 or any other "busy" district. But they could at least back people up or clear from jobs in a timely manner. It has turned into a real shitty district to work. Hopefully it will change.

was working in 025 a few nights ago and we went to help out some 025 coppers chasing a guy with a pistol.

i have read alot of shit on this blog about coppers from 025 but i will tell you this, there had to be at least 40 or more coppers out there trying to help look for this shitbag and they got him.

you dont have to worry about getting back up in 025 if youre chasin someone thats for sure

Officers, when you least expect it you have a back-up. Me and my friends.

Now don't get yourself in a tizzy, we back up by providing look-out until the officers show up.

The west-siders who hide in the house when "dopeman" makes his drug deals are 99.9999% some of their drug/gangbanging friends.

Some of these thugs are so old, they poot dust.

Still gangbanging and acting a nut, that's why we provide look-out.
