Crashes Injure Four Cops

  • Four police officers were injured early Sunday when their squad cars collided during a chase in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

    About 3:35 a.m., Ogden District police officers were pursuing a stolen car near the 2600 block of South California when two assisting squad cars collided, police said, citing preliminary information.

    Two officers each were transported to Mount Sinai and Stroger hospitals, police said. All had non-life-threatening injuries.

    The stolen vehicle also struck another squad car in the 3100 block of South California, but no one was injured in that crash. Two people were arrested after that, and charges are pending against them, police said.
We understand all but one of the officers were treated and released. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and hopefully, the last officer returns home shortly.

4 arrested, not 2. One of the shitheads had an IA for shooting the 9 year old back in December. Charges approved. Get well soon VP

I guarantee you will see more of these pursuits in the good old 025 District in the coming months. Seems the new Commander, MP, has told her tact teams, who are plain clothes and drive in unmarked cars, that they are required to come in with movers everyday.

Seriously...

Why bother chasing anymore unless it's some who hurt a Policeman?

The very ideal of Policing is being rebooted before your very eyes.

Know this...
The public DOES NOT WANT hard hitting, ass-kicking, head-knocking, fast driving, 20 crying & screaming ne'er-do-well m/fers crammed in the back As the wagon goes screaming straight to lock-up to a waiting conga line of Coppers standing by with batons and Kel-Lites to bid them welcome to our humble abode for their crimes against the public's peace...

To insist on doing stuff the "old way" in this anti-Police climate is to have no regard for the principles of how to survive a career as a Street Cop...

Work smart and work with the mindset of protecting yourself, your partner and your brother officers, first and foremost...

Most people get beside themselves when Policemen articulate this thought. They say it's cruel and selfish for Policemen to not be so willing to sacrifice their bodies and lives for the public.

Don't chase...for a guy who shot a 9 year old?
I'll be the first to say don't chase a hot car. I've even called off my own. I've seen too many coppers jammed for doing it, and too many hurt, but I'm not gonna armchair quarterback this one.
Hot car, no. Copper shot, naturally yes. Dude who shot a 9 year old...I would, I know some wouldn't, not here to judge, not gonna fault them either.
Get better soon, Brothers. And good pinch.

Thank God the injuries were not more serious than they were. Speedy recovery officers. See you in the spring.

If a boss calls off a chase don't flame him or her for it. Rather call it off than go to funeral.

Something I have observed. At night on Chicago's well lit streets and alleys, a marked CPD vehicle, a Crown Vic, Tahoe or whatever cruising with its lights OFF is a MARKED CPD VEHICLE. But a marked CPD vehicle with its headlights ON two blocks away at night is just another pair of headlights.

Stay Safe and always wear your seatbelts.

Dismissed Case = Civil Rights Law Suit
by the life long shitbirds against Policemen
trying to do their jobs in this "War Against
The Police" climate.

Watch these Officers names to be on another
CPD "List" to be released to the media in the near
future...

The Police are the problem...
Not these free and easy swing-dick m/fers running
around robbing, stealing, raping and killing.

They steal oxygen and exist only to inflict misery,
breed relentlessly and to turn yet more food into shit...

Viva Hate...
Right?

And if they don't? Tell her to put it in writing.

=============================

You're a pud!
How about being responsible for your own actions?

I've been in many pursuits as a P.O. & usually kept it under wraps for fear of it being terminated. With that, I knew that only I would take the heat if something went south. I wasn't about to put my Sgt in the middle.
Why is that the person who posted the above comment is probably the same Officer who'd MF a Sgt for calling off his pursuit?
You can't have it both ways.

GET WELL OFFICERS!

Glad there are no reports of serious injuries.

Sad there are injury reports of any level.

C'mon dude & dudettes...chasen cars for brownie points in this day and age?

Play with your phones or something, anything! Well, not anything.

Stay safe.

If the supervisor ends the chase he is a no balls piece of shit. If he lets it go and it turns out bad then hes a jagoff and where was he.

Make up your minds.

AND some wrecked squads, in a dept. that doesn't have a well maintained fleet to begin with. Maybe someone should have called that off before it developed into a version of the matchbox derby.

How about having enough common sense to call it off yourself - when you see a car going the wrong way down a one way or blowing through intersections. Smartest cops I've heard on the air are the one that realize it ain't worth it ....

I was on duty that night and earleir in the evening a flash message was given about an armed robbery that had occurred and a vehicle description with plate information was included. This is the same vehocle that took off from the officers in 010. Convenient hat the armed robbery part was left out of the news article.

Yes , motor vehicle theft is not a reason to pursue. Armed robbery offender and solen vehicle? Its late at night, traffic is light, pedestrian traffic is light.....kinda meets the balancing test! Seems the need to apprehend the armed robbery offenders necessary.

I am a retired Sergeant and had many chases over my years, but the times have changed, everybody is out to get the police. and you are right, when a Sgt. calls off a chase the air gets filled with Bullshit, name calling and then it hits the bathroom walls, and the weird looks directed at the boss. SO I only terminated the chases when it was apparent nothing good was going to come from it.
