Woman Blasts Burglar

  • A woman today shot and killed a man who Chicago police said was breaking into her South Chicago neighborhood home on the city's Southeast Side.

    Police said the victim heard glass breaking in her basement on the 8200 block of South Kingston Avenue at about 10 a.m.

    After grabbing her handgun, the woman confronted two intruders, but struck only one when she opened fire, police spokeswoman Officer Anne Dwyer said. The second man fled.

    The wounded intruder, identified by the Cook County medical examiner's office as Vincent Fleming, 20, of the 300 block of West 42nd Street, was pronounced dead a short time later at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

    An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

Nice shooting ma'am. We certainly hope the new mayor gives her a key to the city. As of this posting, neither newspaper has the story upon the main page. We wonder why that is.

That last line of the paragraph should have read "The second man fled BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANT HIS ASS CAPPED, TOO."

Easy. They're too busy covering the manipulation of our mayoral race.

You know, there is no other local news. None. It's all about where the candidates are shaking hands, blowing kisses, using kleenex and clearing their throats today.

On the bright side; no coverage means no pressure to crucify her in the media. I count that as a win.

OT, ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – A manhunt was under way Tuesday for the person who shot and killed a St. Petersburg police officer — the third officer to be gunned down in the line of duty in less than a month.

Police said the shooting happened after two officers were called to a neighborhood just south of Tropicana Field — where the Tampa Bay Rays play baseball — around 10:30 p.m. Monday to investigate a report of a suspicious person who may have been a prowler.

Officer David Crawford spotted the suspect and got out of his vehicle to approach him. At 10:37 p.m., another officer, Donald J. Ziglar, reported an exchange of gunfire and told dispatchers an officer was down.

Ziglar found Crawford lying on the pavement near his cruiser, police said. He had been shot multiple times at close range.

"Blood, it was everywhere," said Michael Poncedeleon, a resident who saw the shooting and spoke to TV station Bay News 9.

"Everybody was so emotional, all the cops were screaming," he said.

Crawford, a 25-year-veteran, was pronounced dead at Bayfront Medical Center. He was 46.

By Tuesday morning, SWAT teams, a helicopter and canines were being used in the search for the suspect. Authorities said there was no evidence that the suspect was injured during the exchange of gunfire and an intense manhunt was ongoing in the Gulf Coast city.

Pinellas County Schools announced that a middle school and two elementary schools near the scene would be closed Tuesday and students were being notified to attend nearby schools.

The Tampa Bay area has had six officers shot to death in the line of duty in the last two years.

Monday's shooting happened about four miles from where two officers were gunned down in January. Officers Jeffrey A. Yaslowitz and Thomas Baitinger were killed as they helped serve a warrant on a man with a long criminal history.

"This city has been through hell," Mayor Bill Foster said during an early morning news conference Tuesday. "Our hearts are broken."

Officers gathered at Bayfront Medical Center and saluted as a white van carried Crawford's body out of the hospital.

"It hurts," Police Chief Chuck Harmon said at the news conference outside the hospital early Tuesday. "It stings. This killer has taken someone very precious to us, a member of our family."

Harmon said he could see the look of shock on the faces of his officers.

"As I saw their faces tonight it was ... not again," he said.

Now Rahm says he will put 1000 more cops on the street by putting desk officers out and replacing them with cadets and get rid of our current medical policy. What about the bid spots in the contract? Are you just going to get rid of that as well? Same as the medical. VOTE CHICO PLEASE

EB is the focus of a FOX news interview on Chicago's top African American cop. It's funny they didn't bother to fact check this guys embarassing background. He has no integrity. His lies, lack of judgement and scandals make him a liability to the dept. instead of an asset. They could have picked any number of local African Americans that are far more deserving, respectible, and intelligent than this fool.

OT It does not matter who wins the mayor spot today. It's the first step to getting rid of Da Mayo. Hopefully the new aldermen turn Chicago back into a republic democratic city. Da King Mayo will be closer to getting his green ass out off the throne. He has turned Chicago into a horrible train wreck that will last for years. Four years from now don't fall for the trick that a Daley (Nora) needs to be mayor to improve Chicago once again. What an embarrassment!!!!

If we had the correct amount of CPD officers on the street we would be safer, but the police can not be everywhere all the time, so nice shot and I am sorry you have to live with this shit.
We are all very proud of you, you are now a combat vet. You did the right thing. God bless you and the CPD and our brothers and sister overseas.

"It's a big change in Chicago," said Margaret O'Hara, who cast her vote for Emanuel in a high-rise residential building near Lake Shore Drive. "It's important that the next mayor understand the importance of keeping the Magnificent Mile nice, with art and flowers."

This is what is wrong with Chicago with have idiots like this voting. I like Rahm because he promised more flowers that we cant afford on my block. What a f-ing moron. You can put up as many nice barriers and flowers pots but if the people have no money to spend and the city keeps taxing and raising rates for everything then guess what it doesn't matter you idiot.

If she had a FOID she can't be charged with violating Chicago's ordinance. As long as the shooting is justified she is immune from civil action. One of the few laws our state actually got right.
