Long Chase

  • An off-again, on-again pursuit ended today when Oak Brook police nabbed a Gilberts man who officials say had been on the run -- at moderate speeds -- for nine hours.

    The pursuit began about 5:30 p.m. Thursday near Springfield, where an Illinois State Police trooper noticed the taillights on a Dodge Neon weren't working, said Lt. Luis Gutierrez, a state police spokesman.

    The trooper tried to make a traffic stop but the Neon, which turned out to have been stolen, kept going. It was not speeding and state troopers do not chase drivers for minor crimes, so the trooper noted the license number and let it go, Gutierrez said.

He was charged with trying to run down an officer, who will be fine. But damn - 9 hours? Maybe we can get some of those Neons for patrol?

Oak Park PD vs. 015th District

Last night an Area 5 detective (Pat M.) was driving through Oak Park. He observes a gray Ford driving erratically when he attempts to pull the car over. The driver refuses to stop and continues to blow through a few stop signs committing several traffic violations. When he finally curbs the vehicle, the male black driver starts cursing and THREATENING Detective Pat M. It turns out it was an Oak Park P.D. tact officer. The detective was smart enough to hold his radio key down and capture the belligerent Oak Park officer’s remarks. Some of the remarks included calling him a “white racist motherfucker” and included “you are always fucking with our people”.
The goof acted in such a manner that would be considered threatening enough to charge this clown with assault. Many Oak Park coppers related to Area 5 detectives that this copper has a history of doing this shit and likes to pull the race card.

The entire thing was taken into the 015th District where the watch commander and the Oak Park Police Chief discussed the manner.

Oak Park usually does not screw around with jag off officers like this..
Perhaps if the media picks this up, this scumbag shit Oak Park asshole will get what he deserves.

Good thing that the Neon gets good MPG. I bet cars had to dropout to fuel up.

Bullshit "no chase" policies in Illinois, especially Chicago. We lose, bad guys win - the minute they set foot inside and car and drive away. We are the pussy police! Fucking embarassing and a travesty if you ask me.

Until it's YOUR kid or YOUR wife or YOUR mother that gets broadsided be some asshole being chased by the bigger asshole in the squad car. Get a clue- no one is going to back you unless the offender killed someone, has the potential to kill someone- has killed a copper, etc-and that's going depend on what how the public reacts. Chasing stolen property, i.e. a car, that is going to be replaced by an insurance policy and risking your life and someone elses-is foolish.

Pick your battles.

Not be sound stupid,but why does he try to stop a car in oak park to begin with? Sounds like the detective does not have enough to do here,maybe he could clear some Chicago cases? Maybe?

Oak Park PD vs. 015th District


When I worked in 015 we always cooperated with oak park and Cicero pd. In my experience there were lots of good officers in those departments.

Re:The Oak Park thing. Having worked with the OP guy for years I may be too close but think if he played the race card he felt it justified at that time. I have to wonder, you have one guy driving like he owns the world (he being the Pohleese and all) then notices another jagmoe following him driving the same way but in the first guys town. Not to mention you have a city dick who can't spot an unmarked Crown Vic squad? Wassup wit dat? Any departments dicks should stick to solving murders and leave traffic alone. Especially in another jurisdiction. Gets you nothing but grief.

How about just pulling over and identifying yourself as a cop. Traffic stop over, problem solved. Leave the race cards at home. We are on the same team!

I had heard the plate on teh Oak park vehicle did not come back to any Police Department in the world. Intially the Oak Park cop had been in Chicago, which for all you Non-North Siders is on the Border of Chicago/Oak Park. Not like the Chicago Detective was playing traffic in Fond Du lac Wisconsin. And when you really think about it, how big of a jag off do you have to be to have a Detective do a traffic stop?

Also heard that this is not the first time this has been done by the Oak Park guy. He had done it before to a Chicago Lt and Sgt and then cried racism and a beat down for No reason at all. Would seem like this guy has a problem or is seeking a pay out from someone.

And it is all on tape, with the Chicago Detective being well behaved and the oak Park guy acting like a West Side DOG!!! you gotta love technology. Sometimes it does work in your favor.

Hope the Oak Park guy makes allegations against CPD like he did in the past and has it stuffed right up his racist ass.

How about OP working their own town and CPD dick decides to play police. Lights were on and the DICK still could not figure out he was in OP. Did the DICK make out a pursuit form?????

and how do you explain the Oak park guy taking off twice after pulling over? sems like this guy is just odd.... Never had any problem with Oak Park either on or off duty, but this guy sounds like he has issues, not a reflection on the Oak park PD just the individual. CPD also has it share of goofs, but when it is on tape kinda hard to argue that it was justified racism by the OPPD Officer. He should of gotten out the first time identified himslef and that would have been the end of it, not wait till the CPD guy walked up to his car and drive away not once but twice.... and yes a chase was called in so i'm guessing the CPD guy felt justified in the stop.

Considering the OPPD gets their "tac" cars from seizures, I can tell you first hand that those Crown Vics are in worse shape than most of CPDs tac cars.

I am not at all surprised something like this happend, it was only a matter of time.
