Police Shooting

Seems to be a lot more of these lately - they run in fits and starts:
  • A man was shot and wounded by police officers Saturday night in Englewood, authorities said. The man was shot about 8:16 p.m. in the 5800 block of South Morgan, police Deputy Chief Dana Alexander said.

    "Englewood District tactical officers were on patrol when they responded to a call of ‘man with a gun’ in the 5800 block of S. Morgan," according to a written statement from the police department.

    "Officers observed a man matching a radio description flee on foot to the back of a residence," the statement said. "Officers gave chase and confronted the subject in a rear of the residence. Officer observed the offender holding a weapon and ordered him to drop it. The offender did not comply, at which point officers discharged their weapons," the statement said.
A lot of bosses giving statements to the media ahead of Pat Camden all the sudden. Is this some new policy? Beat the FOP to the punch?

Well...
That's because the media whores have been doing a lot of crying about the eeeeeeeevil FOP "always" giving a post shooting synopsis favorable to us hateful, brutal union member churls whenever we drop shots "for no good reason" at a turning his life around honor student...

"We need to know what the Cops did wrong so FOP won't be able to cover it up!"

...And other such similar shit indicative of feverish lefty loon thinking.

Aye... So wistfully wishing "Big Creepy" would crawl through the right media member window at 3AM...

"I'm not in Chicago so I'm safe!"

>Snicker!<
No the fuck you ain't by a long shot...

Danger is best when those who think they're so above it have to take a big, nasty unexpected gulp of the stuff.

Didn't you hear about the new head of IPRA??
He's an ex fed and that was one of the first things he wanted to change. He didn't see why the first statement people hear about a shooting should be coming from the FOP and not the department.

I think it was under Weiss that the rules were changed and no one was allowed to give a statement concerning police shootings. Prior to that any boss or even Ops could give a statement. No statement should be given period. Especially that early in an investigation. If Camden states something that is not in the reports or differs from the reports you can bet that he will be subpoenad by the defense when you get sued. There is no need to give out any information to the media until the investigation has been completed.

Yes, the head of IPRA is an ex-Fed. But he's a former DEA Agent...not FBI. Historically, the DEA and the CPD have had a much better relationship, mainly because the DEA isn't tasked with investigating allegations of civil right's violations. So don't blame the "ex-Feds" on this one. The DEA is a very CPD-friendly organization and has been since the Phil Cline days.

I heard team policing is going citywide. Maybe opening up a post on the pros and cons.

It may help, from what I heard, that shootings are down in the districts it was implemented.

++++ '....the 33-year-old man’s mother had called the police ... because he had fired shots inside the home. ... The man’s father leaned out a second-floor window and shouted to the police that his son had a gun ... the man put the gun on the stairs but then reached for it and was shot three times. ...' ++++

Another genius who didn't follow police commands and winds up dead. Doesn't anyone in Da Hood listen to at least a bit of news about all the other mental midgets who've done this? I'd think that *Urban Radio* would report on the subject.

Plus it'd be in some conversations in *the community* among home boys, e.g.: .........
"Yo Bro, ya hear 'bout LaQwuan. Dude went for his gun and po-leece capped his ass, he be dead bro. Ya'll gotta drop the piece when dey tell ya man. Ya feel me?'

But how long before some scum sucking lawyers like Loevy & Loevy get to the family, they recant what they told the cops, or get in on the new fad and claim Excessive Force was used; 'Why'd they have to kill him, they should have just shot him in the arm. Why didn't the po-leece just use a Taser. He really wasn't a 'violent' boy. Blah blah blah.'

After all it's likely their only chance to get in on the Ghetto Lottery.

It's an extremely dumb a$$ move by the department to make statements about on-going investigations. When it jumps up and bites them in the a$$, they'll stop doing them. It the stupid media who is pressuring 35th St to make statements. If they don't get information, the media resorts to making up stuff they need to print a story. God forbid the media should use any of that college education.
Oh wait, I forgot about the Northwestern School of journalism. Never mind!

Notice that all comments from the Department are in police-ease terms. You will never hear a CPD source say the officer was "in fear of his life or the life of another." Using those terms would infer the shooting was "justified" and that is what IPRA is afraid of. Why would an officer shoot someone without being in "fear" of his or an others life? Over 98% of the police involved shooting are in fact "justified". It takes IPRA months to make come to that conclusion. When IPRA completes their investigation, not only is it old news, but the results are not released. When a police officer has to use deadly force to protect himself or another, the public has a right to know the relevant circumstances as soon as possible. We don't have trigger happy police officers in Chicago, we have thugs who have no respect or fear of the police and they refuse to drop the weapon. When that happens, the offender pays the price. Without the basic facts being released you can wind up with another Ferguson.

Given the new concealed carry law in effect, a man with a gun call shouldn't automatically be treated as a crime. Even the law allows for partial visibilty of the weapon.

Keep in mind that if bosses give statements before FOP spokesmen Pat Camden that's because of Dean Angelo and his clowns. Everything has to be approved by the FOP clowns first and being those fools are not the sharpest knives in the drawer they take awhile to approve what Pat Camden releases to the press.

Remember when Mark Donahue did all of FOP's press releases? Why is it that if Deans a doctor that he can't do them for FOP? Oh wait, because he got his PhD from a Cracker Jack box.

O.T. But very urgent news!!!

I am a police officer in the 011th district assigned to 03rd watch. I voted for Dean Angelo and listened to his campaign speech in our roll call.

Having received the latest newsletter I wanted to bring attention the clearly anti-police and liberal agenda of Sen Bill Cunningham of the 18th District which encompasses the South Side neighborhoods of Beverly and Mt Greenwood where I reside. I believe endorsing Cunningham was a great error for the FOP and will lead many to vote the WRONG way on Nov 4.

State Sen Bill Cunningham voted the following:
HB 183 Concealed Carry -- No...
HB 3499 Firearm Waiting Period Exceptions -- No
SB 965 Speed Cameras -- Yes
SB 2621 Granting Early Release of Prisoners from IL Dept of Corrections -- Yes
HB 203 Limiting 1 Gun Purchase/30 Days -- Yes


In addition he also voted FOR SB1, which every union was AGAINST, including our own I believe, which diminished pensions:http://www.beverlyreview.net/news/featured_news/article_15624c24-61b3-11e3-baef-001a4bcf6878.html

Not only has Bill Cunningham voted against gun rights, he has voted to put CPD and CFD retirees on Obamacare, has voted to reduce pensions (while collecting two of his own), he has also voted to reduce the sentences of criminals we so tirelessly work to incarcerate. He even voted AGAINST requiring photo ID for LINK/EBT cards. When you analyze his voting record you will see there is very little deviation from house speaker Mike Madigan, who is no friend to the FOP or working policemen.

Bill Cunningham's entire voting records can be viewed athttp://votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/127803/bill-Cunningham

A far better candidate that has our pensions and best interests in mind is Shaun Murphy who is a republican and running against Bill Cunningham

http://www.murphyforsenate.com/

I hope Mr. Angelo had a chance to interview Mr Murphy as well. There could not be a WORSE endorsement for the policemen on the South SIde of Chicago than Bill Cunningham. If there is still time I hope there is a way the FOP can reverse the official endorsement of Bill Cunningham and notify the union members so they don't make a horrible mistake in punching his ticket. I have never met Sen Cunningham however I am taking the time to write this letter so that members can be better informed on the serious dangers Sen Cunningham provides to the FOP, CPD Pensions, and overall law enforcement in general.

Off Topic:

It seems RAHM is passing out contracts again.
To fund head start programs for "kids".
Goldman Sachs, Northern Trust and the Pritzker Family Foundation to more than double their $17 million investment over 18 years.

Now why doesnt RAHM offer these deals to the pension funds of firefighter, police, and teachers?
Double investment over 18 years???

That is DOUBLE AS in 17 million!

Unless RAHM has a kick back in place with theses three companies eg. they will donate large amounts of cash to RAHMS chosen charities.

But the media are pretty simple minded and will think this scam is legit. Who would pass up a guaranteed investment backed by bonds the city must pay.

May be that guy i voted for as trustee for our pension funds can talk with the sgt and lt. and figure out a play for this scam cash?

Was this PO stripped for Justified Use Of Force by IPRA demand? No CR#? IPRA is in charge?
