Someone Got Charged?

We're actually surprised by this report, seeing as how it's been weeks since anyone else was charged for this same or worse actions:
  • A protester was freed on bond Friday after his arrest during a Christmas Eve march along the Magnificent Mile shopping district to protest the fatal police shooting of Laquan McDonald.

    The suspect, Eugene Tucker, was charged with battery and failing to obey police. He is accused in court documents of hitting a police commander on the head.

    Tucker was one of two demonstrators arrested Thursday on misdemeanor charges. The other was Anderson Chaves, 19, of Berwyn, said ...a Chicago police spokeswoman.
Of course, since Anita's office isn't involved in charging misdemeanors, we're sure it will be dropped at court on the first appearance. Someone update us.

A little tolerance goes a long way and buys a lot of good will. People with real issues are just exercising their constitutional rights.

It has been 14 months since LaQuan was killed. And over a month of protests regarding the incident

News flash!! Despite all the nonsence protesting by Mr. Fletler and #BLM, LaQuan is still dead. No change likely in near future

That is all.

"Aren't you cops supposed to be disciplined and trained
enough not to retaliate against people for merely resisting
your attempts to unjustly arrest them? After all, aren't you
guys mostly overly strong, large, heavy-fisted, thick-necked
former Catholic League football and wrestling types from
Inbred Mt. Greenwood?"

We reckon it's "good optics" for the beefy, heavy-fisted Policeman
to NOT lawfully punch an ASSAILANT (big word alert) hard enough
said ASSAILANT curled up in a tight self embrace in a jail cell alternately
laughing, crying and having fantastical conversation with himself for a day or three.

Like we used to...
Like we really need to?

Or is this the new normal?

Nary a law governing Police use of force/defense of self has been changed.
(Yet...)

But this Fuckery by the cowardly bosses who turn a willing blind eye
to their subordinate officers being battered?

"Let 'em do what they want."
"Stay in formation."
"Don't react!"

Do they think these
mis-mothered fucks are going to be
impressed by Police "discipline" and have a change of heart?

Fuck no they're not.

Some asshole WILL up some silly shit and/or
ugly shit like x-acto knives...

You normal people ought to be on your knees in
gratitude that it's been SOMEBODY other than YOU
finding somebody else laying in a pile of their own
innards with 100+ whooping/hollering swing-dicks/hang tits who saw
every-fucking-THING and ain't seen shit at all...

Cue:
Coming off the damn porches after a whole day of
"nuttin' goin' on cuz..."

"Da fuk da po-leece done did?"

So when some poor Copper gets maimed or ripped
to ribbons and he pounces on the asshole and turns
his head backwards for him, butter still won't melt in
in Mistuh Corporation Counsel's/Miz State's Attorney's
prevaricating pie-holes.

"Why are you Coppers so vile tempered?"

Can not understand why there are so many white faces in these protest marches. They are not all young people. See lots of grey hairs out there also. If they ever need protection or need to file a report hope they call a protester to help them and see what they get responding to their appeal.

So you have to be of the rank of commander or higher to quaify as a victim of a battery. That should be amended into state law so theres no more confusion. Pay attention all you go getters!

I'm actually surprised you didn't address this, but do you think the reason he was arrested was maybe because he hit a COMMANDER? If these charges aren't dropped, it will only be because of the victim's status as a commander. The lowly P.O. standing on the frontlines for hours, getting screamed at, stared at, insulted, threatened, etc. doesn't count... only the important bosses.

P.S. If you're one of those poor souls standing in front of these fools "protesting," and they push you, spit on you, threaten you, or otherwise victimize you, grow a sack and arrest them. Don't let your boss tell you to let them get away with committing crimes against police officers. Blocking entrances to stores, sitting or lying down in the street, etc... who gives a fuck? But once they fuck with you, make them pay. It's unacceptable. Anita will have to charge someone at some point, regardless of their rank or connections.

When political dignitaries visit Chicago, protesters must protest in designated areas.

Why is it the those protesting the Laquan McDonald shooting on Christmas Eve are allowed to disrupt traffic and to disrupt public access in to Water Tower Place?

The police were actually blocking people from entering the building, evidently to keep protestors happy.

Most Chicagoians, are just as repulsed by the Laquan McDonald shooting as the demonstrators.

Just about everyone loathes Mayor Emanuel and wishes he was gone.

But, that does not justify the disruption these protestors created by virtue of Water Tower Place being inaccessible and traffic being diverted from the area, creating blocked insections from diverted busses traveling down clogged streets and not being able to make turns. Chaos.

As truly uncalled for as the Laquan McDonald shooting and evident cover-up was, given the recently released video, the fact is, it is not the standard in the millions and millions of interactions each year between the citizens of Chicago and the CPD.

Police across the country do not go to work intending to shoot anybody, White, Black, Hispanic, etc.

In this unfortunate case, it was a case of a bad cop or a cop just losing it. What shouldn't be ignored is the fact that had McDonald not been acting the fool he wouldn't have had the encounter where he was shot. No, that doesn't justify the shooting.

These repeated demonstrations are especially disruptive and dangerous in light of the threat of terrorism and the recent reports that the San Bernardino killers planned an attack where they intended to create traffic jams to facilitate killing large numbers of people sitting in traffic.

Every time there is an event like the one at Water Tower Place that goes unaddressed, the disruptors will only get more disruptive.

They have a right to protest. They do not have a right to disrupt the normal course of business, or in the case in another demonstration in another city to disrupt the screening of airplane passengers and delaying flights.

This cannot be allowed to continue as it will only result in chaos.

The taxes alone in 60611 are enough to support the mortgage of a decent home in many modest communities in places like Lancaster, PA or Knoxville, TN.

Law and order should be maintained.

We are certainly paying for it and not getting it.

With regards to the lengthy post about the criminal that got shot 16 times:the first couple of shots were definitely justifiable on a legal level. He WAS ARMED and by his actions leading up to the shooting, he was also a threat to others. I was not repulsed by him getting shot.

As to the SCC post, well guess what.......the offender was released on an I-Bond.

Nothing new about the chArge of aggravated battery Gainst the Police not being approved in Chicago. I have a friend who spent many years in Chicago doing his time on felony review here and not approving Avg. Batt. Charges on an offender unless the Chicago Copper has broken bones , been shot or stabbed. He was transferred up north to Skokie and was called to a northern suburb on felony review for Agg. Batt. On a P.O. when he gets their he interviews the victim P.O. and is told a story how the offender poked his finger in the suburban officers chest and wants the felony charges approved. My friend would not approve the charges as he had been instructed not to in his years in Chicago. Shit hit the fan the next day and he was called into the head ASA's office to explain what happened the previous night in the northern suburbs police station, he explained and said "I can't approve Agg. Batt. On a P.O. for that", his boss said," OK I understand, it's a little different up here, we approve Agg. Batt. For that up here."
True Story, so there has been a double standard for as long as I have been on the job. Chicago coppers are tough and expected to take it and give it back, where as the suburban coppers are to be afforded charging according to the letter of the law, he was told.
I kid you not.

So, the criminal charge of battery to a police officer is over used in your opinion? You are really nuts.

Back in the day when you could hit them back and they would learn a lesson, it wasn't used much. Now we are not even allowed to speak harshly to them. We better charge them. There had better be consequences.

You are whats wrong with this department. You don't know the law. In this situation mob action can be charged. There is a specific section in mob action statute that covers this. Maybe read a law book once in awhile and you would know this!! An experienced police officer with the necessary skills and knowledge to handle this job would know this!
720 ILCS 5/25-1) (from Ch. 38, par. 25-1)
Sec. 25-1. Mob action.
(a) A person commits mob action when he or she engages in any of the following:
(1) the knowing or reckless use of force or violence disturbing the public peace by 2 or more persons acting together and without authority of law;
(2) the knowing assembly of 2 or more persons with the intent to commit or facilitate the commission of a felony or misdemeanor; or
(3) the knowing assembly of 2 or more persons without authority of law, for the purpose of doing violence to the person or property of anyone supposed to have been guilty of a violation of the law, or for the purpose of exercising correctional powers or regulative powers over any person by violence.
(b) Sentence.
(1) Mob action in violation of paragraph (1) of subsection (a) is a Class 4 felony.
(2) Mob action in violation of paragraphs (2) and (3) of subsection (a) is a Class C misdemeanor.
(3) A participant in a mob action that by violence inflicts injury to the person or property of another commits a Class 4 felony.
(4) A participant in a mob action who does not withdraw when commanded to do so by a peace officer commits a Class A misdemeanor.
