Cops Save Two

  • Police officers pulled two unconscious men from a burning car in Gresham early Sunday, police said.

    A car in the 7700 block of South Loomis Boulevard hit several parked cars and then caught on fire. Officers arrived at the scene at about 2:20 a.m. and were told that one person had gotten out of the car, but two others were still inside. They broke out the windows and pulled out two unconscious men.

    Two people were in serious-to-critical condition after the crash, according to Chicago Fire Department Cmdr. Curtis Hudson. A 25-year-old man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center with head pain and a 27-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital with a head injury.
Excellent job Officers.

a mysterious child appeared with a fire extinguisher and then vanished, allowing the officers to reduce the flames enough to extract the drivers. true?

Quick to applaud the police whom didn't have to do much.

The 15 year old kid that came out of his house to GET INVOLVED and HELP brought them a fire extinguisher. That young kid, I think his name is Sweet is the true hero of the night. The guys would have burned without him.

Great work young man, I have faith the neighborhood won't consume him and he is set for better things.

Looks like two more officers will make Sgt., since saving a life is all it takes to qualify for merit.

Oh on second thought, they have to be clouted.

You need to research the definition of 'hero'.
Great, that the teen brought a fire extinguisher to the scene. Very helpful.
But our guys were the ones who risked their lives pulling the occupants out.

1137am: too bad your bias got the best of you and you couldn't see fit to give the officers their due. Yes they did a good thing. Some could have let them burn to death and called fire. Some could have made a u turn. But they didnt. Guess you didn't take the time to listen to the press conference where the officers applauded the kid and said he was the true hero. That's not good enough for you? What.more do you want? It's people like you that keep the rhetoric going. #itsnevergoodenough

Settle down there Tackleberry. I wasn't taking anything away from the Coppers. I also wasn't writing about the press conference, if you actually look back at the blog post it speaks only of the police. I read the article and watched the news conference and yes, the officer gave good credit to the kid he couldn't name, even though he should be in a report. I would also imagine as good police officers should they told him to stand back after he handed over the fire extinguisher that made it possible to do anything. It is plenty good enough and they will get their green ribbon, I absolutely applaud them for their actions. Shove your rhetoric and bullshit up your ass and read the actual blog post. I don't know where you work and I could give a shit, but you don't come across kids like that too often.

Great job officers and John Sweet.

I am very clear on the term Hero. "Our" guys wouldn't have done a damn thing without the fire extinguisher so giving a little credit to a kid that didn't even have to come out of his house is not uncalled for. The fact that some kid on 77th and Loomis actually had the thought process and intestinal fortitude to grab a fire extinguisher and run out to help is impressive to say the least. I have taken nothing from officers, they got a press conference and they will get green ribbons and a pat on the back. Sorry I think it is only fair that John Sweet get some damn recognition too.

Relax your Thin Blue Line is all ruffled.

Great job all around.

My thin blue line is just fine, thanks. You called a helpful kid a 'hero. He was a helpful kid and he deserves recognition (which, by the way, he has gotten in every news story I've seen on this incident). But he is not a hero.

Some words have become so overused, they're rendered meaningless these days.

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

I would agree with you that the word/title is often overused. Lebron James is NOT a Hero, Muhammad Ali is MOST CERTAINLY not a Hero, Brad Pitt, Lamar Odom, Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner, etc. are NOT heroes.

However it is not a stretch of the imagination that the 15 year old kid that brought out the ONLY tool that mattered is a Hero. Much like the coppers had choices to do nothing or wait for CFD, this kid sure as hell didn't need to make the absolutely critical decision that ultimately allowed the 2nd and 3rd passengers to get out of the vehicle.

He wasn't in every article, he was found by the news the next day. The officers didn't know his name at the news conference, and didn't learn it till later. Most importantly since you don't seem to have read the ORIGINAL blog post, he was not so much as mentioned here on the blog.

I have nothing but good things to say about the police that stepped up to the plate but if you can't set aside your bullshit and acknowledge a kid that did more than the right thing, your just a prick.
