Car Chase on TV!

Someone actually let this go for a while - and let us apprehend a suspect!
  • A potential suspect who led police on a 30-minute high speed car chase on the West Side Tuesday evening may be in custody.

    Police started following a black jeep at Madison and Sacramento in East Garfield Park around 5:15 p.m. The jeep traveled around 70 miles per hour over a span of six or seven miles across the West Side.

    It appeared at least one car was struck during the chase.

    The suspect stopped the vehicle near 227 North Central and fled on foot. He or she then entered the building at that address, and more than a dozen police vehicles surrounded it.
So the chase went on for 30 minutes? Or the chase was going on for maybe three or four minutes tops, and then the foot pursuit and building search went on for 20 minutes? Because at 70 mph, you can cover a bit of ground, even on the west side. We're willing to bet that this guy fled because he pretty much knows that CPD isn't allowed to chase, and certainly can't chase for anything near 30 minutes, which of course, merely emboldens the lawbreakers and encourages more fleeing.

An excellent and professional job all the way around.

1:27mins into the report
Media says CPD "policy prohibits high speed chases." and that part of this incident is "under investigation".
a> missed the part of the order where CPD is not allowed to chase murders
b> thanks for making people think that is our policy
c> hope you were not one of the cars televised caravaning.
d> good job getting the bad guy off the streets in spite of all the B$

If this "Person of interest" does not get charged I really hope he turns around and sues every stupid cop who was involved in this 30 min chase. Sarcasm of course. But on a serious note how many department policies were violated in the pursuit? Who was the lead car, how many cars were involved, did the offending veh go through more than one traffic violation, who let the chase go? So on and so on.

For all you idiots who think I am serious, I am only joking, but think about the problems the officers would face if someone was killed? Is it worth it? The department will hang you out to dry. For what, not an offender, but a person of interest.

Yes. 30 minutes give or take. Another 20 or so after he bailed. Excellent job by everyone involved.

The safest and wisest thing to do in a vehicle pursuit is not to pursue. Read the general order on vehicle pursuit. Carefully read the language the city of Chicago's lawyers have put in place. The full responsibility of a negative outcome falls upon you. If you get a positive outcome then you get a pat on the shoulder. Now ask yourself if it's worth it?

In a way I think this was good for the Oak parkers, Lincoln park trixies, and other privileged delusional who constantly keep their eyes closed to all the violence in this city and blindly scream out Black lives matter rhetoric. Police doing their job, placing their lives at risk, apprehending a criminal NOT an innocent future brain surgeon, hands up altar boy.

First guy in a long time we caught on a chase. Sucks to be him. He probably could not figure out why those blue lights didn't just go off

I was watching it as it happened. The vehicle pursuit actually did go on for quite some time. I was surprised the supervisors let it go on for that long. But, I figured it was probably a homicide offender they were chasing and that's why it was allowed. Nice job by everyone involved. Everyone kept their cool for the cameras. The news people were commenting on how the body language of the police changed after they announced that the offender was in custody "you can tell they are more relaxed now" they said. The news anchors at NBC were actually speaking highly of the police and saying that this video shows how dangerous policing is. I almost fell off my chair. At least they gave all those coppers the credit they deserved.......for the moment anyway.

Great job, and by the grace of God no innocents were hurt or killed! If that chase ended badly you could bet the city would have the coppers on the "media circus" show demeaning them, throwing general orders at them,then the civil suit where they could lose house,cash and more! The bigger question is chasing worth it? In today's "reality show?"

Was just listening to WBBM 780 and they were reporting on how the offender had just been charged, but didn't say for what. Then they report that CPD prohibits vehicle pursuits and that the pursuit is under investigation. So the police are chasing an armed violent offender and they choose the mention CPD pursuit policy. Perhaps the hacks at News radio 780 would like to have this scumbag as a neighbor. Unfucking believable!!! Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Great job by all involved, and a big fuck you News radio 780.

I wonder if that one tact guy has any cartilage left in his knee after kickin' the offenders door about a dozen times. I was surprised to see him still standing afterwards while the NBC reporter was interviewing bystanders. No need to charge that hard, wait for the ram.

Kind of an honest question, is that what an understaffed police department looks like?
