Concealed Carrier

The Tribune initially buried this one in the middle of their report on 18 shootings overnight Saturday (crime is down!):
  • About 11:50 p.m. Friday, a 22-year-old man was shot by another man in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square. Police would not provide details surrounding the shooting but described the 22-year-old man as an "offender," and said he was shot by a 47-year-old man after he pointed a gun at the 47-year-old. The 22-year-old was taken to an area hospital where his condition stabilized. Police said the 22-year-old man was in custody early Saturday.
  • As Custodio was allegedly opening fire on the crowd Friday, an Uber driver with a concealed-carry permit picked up his own firearm and shot Custodio multiple times, according to prosecutors and court records.

    The Uber driver, a 47-year-old Little Italy resident, has a firearm owner's identification card and acted in self-defense and the defense of others, Assistant State's Attorney Barry Quinn said Sunday in bond court.

    No charges have been filed against the Uber driver, police said.

    The incident began about 11:50 p.m. Friday in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square, Quinn said.
    The Uber driver was parked on the east side of the street, while Custodio was on the west side, he said.

    A group of people were walking in front of the Uber driver on his side of the street when Custodio suddenly began firing at them, causing them to scatter, Quinn said.

    The Uber driver then pulled out a gun and fired six rounds at Custodio, striking him multiple times, according to court records.
A few dozen more of these and crime might really be down, eh Garry?

in case all you ET hopefuls aren't aware be careful what you wish for. All future promoted ETs (happening very soon) will have to sign off agreeing that they won't grieve NOT BEING PAID D3 pay for performing the work of forensic investigator. I guess several current ETs are grieving not getting their out of grade pay (sound familiar acting desk sgts?) for doing s*^t the Crime Lab guys usually do. New ETs are going to be cross trained and responsible for a ton more things. Add the new ETs to the "do more for less" category. Can you say NOT WORTH IT??? Let me know when our useless "union" gets us D2A pay for ET then maybe Ill take it. D2???? NO EFFIN' WAY!

A recent story (09APR15) regarding the incident where a Chicago PD detective shot and killed a black woman on the street described the detective as "white" on the front page of the Tribune.

It isn't until you continue to read the story that you find, buried, the fact that he's white *Hispanic*.

The Chicago political syndicate and there media lackeys will go to great lengths to bury any story about citizens protecting themselves and others.

In the hands of the right people, guns save lives.

The web site gunwatch(dot)blogspot culls stories on citizens protecting themselves and others with a gun.

There are stories every few days of lives saved because a good citizen had a gun. On the other hand, stories such as this one where a nut-job shoots at citizens are relatively infrequent, even in Chiraq.

Disarming good citizens is not the answer. The answer is right before us: more citizens should be armed.

Uber is probably going to terminate this hero from driving. Wrong move.

Had the uber driver missed his target and hit a bystander, the media would be playing this 24/7/365.

To Bloomburg, Rahm and McCarthy, stop trying to brainwash us.

The police can't be everywhere when seconds matter.

Give that uber driver a medal.

"Wait until some black youth mobs get mowed down by a concealed carry holder who feared for his/her life."

This is why prudent CCL holders also carry non-lethal defense like OC spray. As George Zimmerman learned the hard way, if you're getting your head beat in by an "unarmed" person, shooting them may still ruin your life. CCL holders can't run any risk of ambiguity; unless a gun or knife is used to threaten you, something LESS than your gun may keep you out of court where Bad Things Happen even to Good People.

Since the shooter was firing at a group right in front of the Uber guy's vehicle, he was defending HIMSELF, as well as others. (And maybe you should read the LAW, which gives him the right to act in defense of both.)

Detective Dante Servin found NOT GUILTY of Involuntary Manslaughter in bench trial.

From CLTV Website

"CHICAGO (AP) — A judge has found a Chicago police detective not guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an unarmed woman.

Cook County Judge Dennis Porter, in a directed verdict Monday, ruled the state had failed to prove recklessness on the part of 46-year-old Officer Dante Servin in the March 2012 shooting death of 22-year-old Rekia Boyd. Porter also cleared Servin, who was off-duty, of reckless discharge of a firearm and reckless conduct.

Boyd died after one of the five bullets from Servin’s unregistered Glock handgun pierced the left side of her head. Servin has maintained he fired only because he felt threatened when he confronted a group at a park about the noise they were making.

The city settled a lawsuit for $4.5 million with Boyd’s family in 2013. "

The sense is most of us live in a world larger than the state of Illinois.

And you really want to pursue a line of thought that the shooter on Milwaukee Avenue was 'only' shooting at the people six feet from the Uber driver and therefore the Uber driver need not defend his own life? I mean, no offender has ever adjusted his aim by six feet and shot someone else, right? Trust me; you'd be a lousy attorney, so don't quit your day job.
