Off Duty PO Shot

  • An off-duty officer was shot early Friday on the South Side.

    The officer was approached by a gunman about 3:20 a.m. in the 8200 block of South Evans Avenue and the two exchanged gunfire, police News Affairs Officer David Banks said.

    The officer was shot, possibly in the hand, and taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County with non-life-threatening injuries.

    The gunman fled the scene following the shooting.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to the Officer.

Neil Steinberg liberal Sun-Times reporter says . .

Off duty police should not be allowed to carry guns. Neither should any other victims of robberies or violent crimes.

If someone is robbing you at gun point, you should simply call 911 after the offender sodomizes you. (Being a liberal, I would hope that I would be sodomized several times as it is very pleasurable.)

If the offender gets really nasty with you, at that point you should hit him with your pennyloafer and ask him to PLEASE stop. (ALWAYS be polite.)
HOWEVER, if he is an African-American you should NOT hit him because that would be VERY racist!

Victims of crimes should not attempt to arm themselves with handguns. It only makes people like me more scared just thinking about it.

Please excuse me now, I must now get drunk and beat my wife some more because I am a coward.

HEy Asshat, maybe he got a late arrest, maybe he was out and had a drink or 2 after work. Does it matter? You are a simpleton Fuckwad. Go back to sitting at the desk pretending to be the police in your nice little north side fruitcake district.

Yeah maybe you should ask Is the officer really ok? Yes the paper said he was ok, but have you seen what a gsw does to a hand or a leg?
So this person can't be coming home at 320? Maybe he had a late arrest, or something to that effect. There is no neighborhood safe anymore in this city. I'll have this officer, when he feels better, move in next door to you so you can nurse his wounds since you care so much about his well being. ASSHAT!!!!!!!!

I was at the hospital with him. He lives in that neighborhood, and he had to park a block away and was walking to his house when the shitbag came up from behind him. Thats why he was there.

And someone did.


How about asking a few relevant questions, like:


1. What makes a neighborhood 'shit'?

2. When did it become a given that a grown man, or woman, shouldn't be free to come and go on the public way, at whatever time of day or night, in whatever neighborhood they choose, for whatever legitimate purpose, without having to worry about being assaulted? And why?

3. Why do so many seem to place so little value on the wisdom of "Mind your own business"?

4. Who wants to know?

First of all the officer is not your child and doesn't have an early curfew. He probably lives there and was returning from a side job, gin mill, or girl friends house. May have wanted to get a few hours of sleep because he had to get up in the morning. In any event- I'm glad he had his gun because if he didn't more than likely he'd be dead. Hopefully his hand will heal and he'll be able to extract some justice when he returns. Stay safe.

um let's see...maybe he lives there? Or he was visiting someone???? People have to understand that officers do not live the 95 schedule. Their weekends off are not your cookie cutter Saturday and Sunday. None of your business what he was doing out at 3am on HIS TIME OFF.

Well lets see let me think maybe he was on his way home from work. Or from a bar in a nice neighborhood or church. What difference does it make? Bottom line he was trying to go inside his house when a piece of shit tried to rob him!

He was shot walking to his house that is why he was on that block. He also managed to strike the offender, although that was not discovered until he was in custody for a few hours.

Maybe he works afternoons. Maybe he was comming home after enjoying a nice summer night. Maybe he lives there. Maybe he has family living there. Maybe he owns property and was going to fix something after work.

Maybe he's a cop who miraculously survived a vicious murder attempt and still had the courage and force of will to take aim and fire on the offender.

Maybe you should ask yourself if you are a cop or a liberal media suckhead bad mouthing your cop brother to any fool who will listen.

Maybe you don't belong on this job and would be better suited in some back-stabbing office where you get ahead by gossiping and lying about your co-workers.

Booty Call. Never tell a woman "no" and never keep a woman waiting.

When I was an exempt many years ago I had a driver that would take me to the projects and wait while I had "booty on duty" from any one of my many jet queens.

You may also remember Marquette's very own Tony V. (retired) who got beaten on and his snub-nose taken away when he responded to a "booty call" on the 3600 block of west Douglas Blvd.

Does anyone remeber the strokes who said the officer from 017 who shot some gangsters while driving home from work was dirty. Why? Because he has a Hummer. Maybe he worked hard and doesn't have ten kids.

He better come back to work FULL DUTY or in six months (180) days he will be asked to seek disability benefits or resign or retire = because this is what this Dept wants to do to officers that cannot be FULL DUTY.
And all of you want to give up your contracted benefits and throw these people under the bus!!!!!

GET RID OF ALL THE "HOT" CHICKS WORKING FOR BOSSES AT 35TH ST.

GET RID OF ALL THE EXCESS BAGGAGE IN THE CAPS OFFICES.

I hope the copper recovers quick. A good lesson in this, PRACTICE with that off duty piece, and carry something you can hit with under stress !!! Also choose ammo carefully, not all hollowpoints expand well out of short barrels.
Speer Gold Dot hollowpoint, marked on the box "for short barrel pistols". New product loaded with special powder, reduced muzzle flash. Never use the 147 grain 9mm (doesnt expand), dont find out the hard way !. NYPD had a hand in developing this Gold dot ammo, they issue it for grandfathered revolvers...google for more info.

HE WAS SHOT, RETURNED FIRE STRIKING THE OFFENDER AND TOOK ONE MORE SCUMBAG OFF THE STREET(that is until the scumbag strikes a deal with the states attorney for probation!)

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR RECOVERY!

Fuck the medical section and the city when they tell you to come back to work. Theres enough dog asses on the medical for no damn reason AND THERE GETTING AWAY WITH IT LEAVING ME 99 AND HAVING TIME DENIED!!!!!!

You have a damn good verifiable reason office for being off as long as needed!!!! This dept. dont give a damn , and we all know it!!!!

For that liberal piece of shit columnist, he needs to move elsewhere like California!!!Incidents happen because of the bullshit ban that Dickey loves so much!!! The criminals know theres only two other types of people who have guns, COPS AND OTHER BAD GUYS!!!

Im sure the shitbag looked at the PO and said " hell he looks like an easy target cuz he looks like a regular joe citz who most likely wouldn't have a gun!"
