Cop Injured

We have an issue with the phrasing of this:
  • A Chicago police officer was injured this morning when he was struck by car that then sped off on the South Side, authorities said.

    The officer was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, police said.

    The officer was standing outside of his police car, conducting a street stop in the 7900 block of South Wabash Avenue in the Chatham neighborhood around 12:30 a.m., when the car hit him...

One of our commentators related that the officer was dragged almost 100 feet by the car. News Affairs is stating "non-life threatening injuries" if the media reports are accurate. That's all well and good that we aren't attending a funeral and all, but Densey Cole ended up suffering what turned out to be "non-life threatening injuries" and he might never walk unassisted again. The officer shot a few weeks back in the leg was also "non-life threatening," but reports since suggest he has undergone and will undergo additional surgeries for knee damage that will leave him with a limp forever.

"Non-life threatening" seems to downgrade the injury to the extent it slips under everyone's radar and fades from memory awfully quickly. We're guilty of it ourselves though we try to verify seriousness before posting. Can we come up with a better description that might convey the seriousness of the injury and the life altering impact many have on cops careers and quality of life?

Potentially devastating, life altering injuries that will require extensive rehabilitation.

Don't want to jazz it up too much lest some thug get his jollies reading how he fucked some cop over.

The media reporting in this town is reprehensible. Bought and paid for by the corrupt politicians and report what is told to them. The sooner we realize we're just the dispensable hired help the less stressed we'll be. The big deal would be for us to stick together and present a united front; if not we're screwed.
So the future is really up to us.

any CPD cop injured on duty is newsworthy to cops and citizens here. ignore bs re non life threatening----undoubtedly, this is fed to media via city hall so cops here won't get all riled up like they should in support of their fellow officers. and so cops and citizens don't cry for more cops.

The media sucks. I was at the hospital today and the poor guy is in real pain and his face is badly scarred up and his leg is all busted. This isn't an injury that would be sustained working an office job. So they can shove it with their "non-life threatening injury.". Unless one of us is laying in a box, the media isn't happy. Fuck 'em. Get well office. We are all praying for you.

Another ignorant, uninformed hairgel speaks!!
Since this is obviously your first contract, go ask someone with more than 5 years on the job how many new contracts were settled before the current one expired or how many new ones merged seamlessly when the current one lapsed. As far as the prisoners of war? News flash, asshole!!!! Most deserved to be answering phones w/o police powers as they fucked up in some capacity. Most repeatedly. The type of guys and gals that, if you were smart, didnt want anywhere near you. Sure, a few got hammered that didn't deserve it, but shame on them for not pursuing it with their lawyers to make them whole. The people with screws loose on this job are always the biggest whiners and bitches, but are also punks when push comes to shove. That's why a lot were there, because they couldnt figure out right from wrong or they listened to some merit jagoff supervisor who left them out to twist in the wind on some bulkshit while they washed their hands of any involvement. If you don't have enough common sense to figure this job out within a couple years, you should be flipping burgers somewhere. And by "you" I mean YOU, Mr. 136AM.

If he will be walking with a limp, that is permanent damage. If he has scars, that is permanent damage.

He sustained permanent damage to his body would be more accurate.

This doesn't even account for any mental damage he might have also developed.

I agree with the observation that the Chicago Media is not objective or even accurate at times.

********************
I'm not a wordsmith, but this is close to conveying what needs to be said. I always thought the other phrase totally just dismissed any and all injuries to police. So the public reads
"non-life threatening,"goes, "Oh well," and its gone from their head. Good job SCC, I hope you can find a phrase that makes folks realize it's 'life changing' in some cases.

The media started using this term to cover for the fact that our troops were coming home missing limbs, but still alive.

I would like to thank our EMT's and Combat Medics for their bravery and skill in saving lives that just a few years ago, would have been lost.

Speaking of Densey, he seems to have dropped off the map. Does anyone have an update? My FB friend request has been "pending" since last spring.

Actual quote from reporter William Lee taken from his bio page on the Tribune site.

"I think the public would be surprised at what actions can turns a citizen into a killer."

A fine example of professional journalism 2012. They don't even use proper grammar when they control every word.

And then there's the content of the quote. His imaginary world where "average" citizens suddenly becoming killers. What?! Where do they find these unskilled, senseless, delusional scribes?

In this case, Hyde Park.

It seems respect for cops has long since vanished in this country. Everyone is Monday quarterbacking decisions that must be made in seconds every day of the week. So just go out and do your job every day and hope there is a retirement check waiting for you at the end. For those of us who are hurt, or worse, we will take good care of our own.

When a CPD officer is injured, on duty or off, regardless of how badly, having the support, prayers, get well wishes from the CPD family and from Chicago citizens who care, helps everyone, not just that injured officer. The coming together of this community is important to the injured, to their families and friends and brothers/sisters. Especially during times like this when cops here are being subjected to serious morale issues. Rely on us not media.

9/14/2012 11:36:00 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

My thoughts and prayers are with the officer and his family. I agree with the issues taken with the importance of word choice in reporting stories.

Another issue with phrasing in this story, an issue that comes up over and over again in traffic related injuries and fatalities, and one that is a big sticking point for traffic safety advocates is this line: "A Chicago police officer was injured this morning when he was STRUCK BY A CAR THAT THEN SPED OFF on the South Side, authorities said."

As though the car was driving it self. When a more accurate statement would be "A Chicago police officer was injured this morning when a driver struck him with their car, and then sped off..." No one would accept a story that said "The officer was struck by a bullet, fired from a gun that then left the seen of the crime." Yet when the implement of destruction is an automobile we readily accept a description that portrays the vehicle as autonomous. Probably because so many of us are drivers and don't want to rush to judgment of someone who we in some small way relate to.

Journalists will argue that this is about saving column inches, but it ultimately creates an environment where traffic injuries and fatalities are seen as commonplace and the cost of doing business and individuals are not held accountable for their actions.

What I did as a CPS teacher

Chicago Public School student Natalia Segal joins the picket line outside Marshall High School on Wednesday. | Scott Olson~Getty Images
Updated: September 13, 2012 2:24AM

I worked for eight years with the Chicago Public Schools, and while I am beginning my first year of teaching with a district outside of Illinois, I thought it important to point out some of the reasons why these teachers are on strike, and why I chose to leave this difficult, dysfunctional district.

Things I did while a teacher with the Chicago Public Schools:

1. Bought 90 percent of students school supplies every year. With my own money. Every year.

2. Bought a projector with my own money.

3. Bought a document camera with my own money.

4. Bought a copy machine with my own money because the teachers at my school were not allowed to use the one in the office.

5. Went weeks without getting paid due to mistakes made by the board. Multiple times.

6. Dodged bullets. Literally. More than once.

7. Packed my belongings in plastic bins the minute I walked in the door of my class due to a bed bug infestation that was ignored by the administration.

8. Saw an attempted murder on the school’s security camera.

9. Had two cell phones, one iPod and an iPod dock stolen from my locked room.

10. Was “given the option” to purchase my own classroom key after a substitute walked off with mine. I was told the school could not afford to purchase one for me.

11. Taught a class with 41 seventh-grade students in it due to a teaching assistant principal’s decision to not teach that year.

12. Spent hours on the phone during peak times when CPS mistakenly dropped my newborn from my insurance plan.

13. Bought supplies and awards with my own money for an entire middle school’s science fair because the company who supplied awards refused to work with CPS due to unpaid bills.

14. Broke up a fight between two pregnant seventh graders.

15. Raised test scores every year. The Chicago Teacher’s Union fights not only for pay increases, but for fair working conditions and fair learning conditions. The teachers have made great gains in achievement over the past few years. Imagine what they could do if the above issues were a thing of the past.

Finally some good news!
as reported from THE ONION
"Chicago Public Schools Celebrate Fifth Straight Day Without Any Student Violence"
"CHICAGO—Jubilant Chicago Public Schools officials announced Friday that, for five straight days now, there has not been a single act of student violence in any of the city’s 675 public schools. “Our classrooms and hallways are safer now than they’ve ever been,” said CPS chief executive Jean-Claude Brizard, happily noting that there have been no reported instances of beatings, stabbings, sexual assaults, or shootings in any of the city’s public schools this week. “We’ve had no incidents of weapons being brought onto school property, nor has anyone had to break up a fistfight between students. We’ve all had to work together for this, but it’s paid off. Let’s keep it up!” At press time, a gunfight on Chicago’s South Side had reportedly claimed the lives of three 16-year-old boys."

Thanks for that. The first post is sad. I don't come to work to be struck by a car (internal injuries) and slide on my head and face across 100 feet across the asphalt to my final stop. Yes I'd be alive but my skin would be gone, my teeth slammed and scraped on the ground, shoulders, knees, ribs, etc. No one signed on for these type of injuries so as the above post says, don't minimize this guys injuries. He wouldn't still be in the hospital 24 hours later if he was ok like you say. Godspeed on your recovery brother.

A reporter's job is not to "favor the police". Non life threatening means just that. His life is not threatened by his injuries.

Excuse me, but why are all of you taking the media to task. It was CPD Media Relations that used the term, "non life threatening injuries."

I also do not see what the connection to the contract is.

I have encountered "non life threatening injuries". That was a real big deal for me.

A ton on concrete came through the roof of the house I was in. If I hadn't stood up and taken two steps, I would have been crushed by the projectile. My wife was seriously injured by shrapnel, and I nearly died from the resultant shrapnel.

"non-life-threataning injuries" means NOTHING AT ALL. I was nearly killed. Several years later, I am still suffering from the effects and have no one to sue for damages. I hope the cop sues and destroys everyone involved.

A reporter's job is also not to favor liberal opinions nor Obama voters.....but they do.
