More Sun Times Nonsense

This from the article a few days ago about the officer shot:
  • A Chicago Police officer and a 15-year-old boy shot each other Wednesday night on the Far South Side, police said.

    The 35-year-old officer was shot near his knee and the teen in his leg and side in the 1300 block of 112th Place, officials said.

    About 8 p.m., plain clothes officers stopped three teenage boys for “suspicious activity,” police said. But the 15-year-old boy fired at the officers and “engaged in a gun battle,” said Police Supt. Garry McCarthy.

    But at least two residents said the officer shot his gun first.

So now the Slum Times expects us to take the first bullet or two before we can legally eliminate the threat to our own lives? We must have missed that part of the State Law. Was this something Quinn added at some point after hours when no one was looking?

Honest to god, the ignorance of the media sometimes astounds us. But we get used to it pretty quick - we just lower the bar a little more.

Does anyone think the reporter who wrote this tripe wouldn't be the first one to shout, "Shoot him! Shoot him!" when he saw a teen with a gun in his hand?

"But at least two residents said the officer shot his gun first."

At least two "residents" were putting the wind up Ald. Cappleman there too. "She gots a knife!"

"Aw yaw betta run! She mean!"

Sorry, we don't have to wait to be fired upon before shooting to defend our life in the glorified "Congo" which Chicago has become. Nice slant, Trib.

I'm still sick of hearing...Drew Peterson, former "police segreant." What did the guy that allegedly shot his wife and kids on the side of the road do for a living? What's that??? Oh yeah, the jagoff media doesn't tell us that because he wasn't a police officer. Fuck the media. If I get the chance to write even the silliest of violation, if its there, I WILL write it. Fuck 'em!

If the officer didnt even shoot his weapon there would have been at leaast 2 residents who would have said he shot first!

This is the mentality that has caused this rising of violence!

They will stick up for each other no matter how wrong their savage acts are!

In a peaceful neighborhood the residents would be applauding the courageous act of the police officer,who put his life in jeopardy to keep the peace!

Not in the ghetto!

This may be why their area is so violent, and they deserve what they are getting!

In my neighborhood I can sleep knowing my neighbors have my back against the bad guys!

Enjoy your community of savagery!

"More Sun Times Nonsense"
---

What a bunch of worthless drivel. The Sun-Times that is. I don't care if the whole damn block says the officer fired first. I always intend on firing first. No worthless bastard gets the first free shot on me and damn if I stop at one shot so he/she/it can get off some potentially fatal rounds.

The threat stops when the assailant is lying dead on the ground or the gun lies safely on the ground and gunman throws his hands in the air. Not before.

Now that the Sun-Times is requiring payment for it's online version there is no reason and no chance to read that pile of crap.

An old timer taught me that there are two ways to take a gun away from someone. When they are alive or when they are dead. Either way works. Just don't try the one if the other is called for.

None of these idiots know anything about police work. They know nothing about the use of force. They seem to think we can only return fire. Idiots. I'd like to see what they would do if someone pointed a gun at them. Would they count one Mississippi, two Mississippi if they were armed? I don't think so. They'd probably empty their pistol.

Too bad more media people aren't victims of violent crime---might change their perspective a bit.

Hopefully, it becomes a meme that people can tap into when the read stories like this. The primitive part of the brain then remembers that ghetto folks ham it up and say the most ridiculous things to the press just to get attention. Attitudes changed, no discussion needed.

Making a simple contact that turned into a shooting.

Not when we worship Thor, god of thunder and Odin, god of war and death.

If we were speaking of the Christian construct, we'd spell it God.

If we were speaking of the Hebrew deity, it would be G-d in deference to Rabbi Wolfe.

We weren't, so stop attempting to push your beliefs on us. You have your God, we have our god. Now go away before Thor smites you.

To my fellow citizens from a non-police officer: always keep your hands in plain sight and be polite.

I'm grateful for the job that the CPD does every day. The media in this town is in the tank with the politicians. The slanted liberal bias has undermined law enforcement and emboldened criminals.

The first to to shoot doesn't mean crap in a gunfight.

Except to the extent, you want to be the first to shot & you want your first shot to hit & kill or disabable.

Evidently, the kid was the aggressor and drew first. That's all that matters.

It's a happy ending when the victim shoots, preferably first and goes home unharmed. It's a doublely happy ending when the aggressor is killed.

An officer of the law or a citizen can not read minds. Therefore, where an aggressor encroaches within a perimiter that the officer or citizen clearly tells the aggressor not to penetrate, at that point & especially at that point where the aggressor reveals a gun, it's aim, shoot , aim shoot, rinse and repeate.

The Sun-times & Tribune? They are lap dogs humping the legs of the liberals. They are totally in the tank. They are the same morons that told us to stay in our seats during a hijacking & enjoy the ride in to a sky scraper.

These liberal fucks will tell you to call 911.

Yea. if you survive to call 911.

The liberal mindset is that you should risk your life, risk being a "Knock-out" game or robbery victim that doesn't get killed or forced in to bankruptcy from medical bills.

They'll tell you to sit back & enjoy the rape, the crime of exercising your 2nd amendment rights because the liberal thinks the arbitrator of the degree of your victimhood ought to be left to the descretion of the aggressor.

That is just fucking insane!

And, if we who have not yet been pussified by the progressives allow them to brainwash us with that bullshit, then we deserve what we get.

It's real simple: pull out a gun, expect to get shot.

This who shot first is lawyerly bullshit obsfucation.

A lawyer how plays the game of making the victim the aggressor? I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire.

Slow your row school boy. Just because a person gets interviewed by the damn media doesn't mean he or she is a resident in the area. People who have a disdain for the police will come out of nowhere just to be on tv and lie for the bad guy no matter what. The people that live in that area work like anyone else and some are retired... many of whom worked for the city. It's also pretty quiet there. The menaces that come to that part of morgan park venture from other areas like Racince courts or from the other side of halsted lurking around looking for someone in particular to hurt. In addition, if these assholes in one particular house on the block where the incident happened would disappear then the residents can live in peace. So please stop it with the judgmental comments...because it has nothing to do with the entire neighborhood. We didn't ask for these folks to live in our community.
