Assailant with a Car Shot
"...but he was unarmed!" will be the rallying cry of the morons:
- Chicago Police officers shot a man who allegedly tried to run down an officer with an SUV on Saturday afternoon in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.
The shooting happened in the 300 block of West 115th Street about 2:45 p.m., according to Larry Merritt, a spokesman for the Independent Police Review Authority.
Gang enforcement officers pulled over a vehicle as part of a narcotics investigation when the man behind the wheel crashed into a police vehicle and tried to strike an officer with his SUV, according to a Chicago Police statement.
Officers then shot the man and he was taken to a hospital where his condition was stabilized, police said.
"Dead" is stable, too, but society wasn't that lucky this time. Good job to the involved officers.
