Bad Luck....Or Good Luck

Don't play the lottery Officer - you've used up a lot of luck:
  • A suspect fleeing police tried to throw his gun onto a roof, but it hit a wall instead and went off, hitting an officer in the shoulder, prosecutors said Thursday.

    The officer's partner kept chasing Rafael Martir-Ubiles, 25, Monday afternoon and cornered him in a gangway in the 2300 block of South Trumbull Avenue, where the officer used a Taser twice to subdue him, prosecutors said.

    Martir-Ubiles appeared in court Thursday, charged with aggravated battery to a police officer, aggravated assault of a police officer, resisting an officer and unlawful possession of firearm by a gang member, police said.

    Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered him held without bail.
Thank you for the no-bail Judge. It's greatly appreciated.

And now we can see where a taser would be appropriate if the partner saw the gun being tossed.

But how much freaky bad luck is that? Dude half-ass pitches a gun and you still get shot? Thank the Fates, Lady Luck, Dame Fortune, whoever, that a cheap pistol didn't end up costing us an Officer's limb or life. Speedy recovery Officer.

And to think people say "Drop the gun" never thinking that a dropped firearm on a hard surface might actually discharge. It happened in this instance. And even if the firearm is manufactured with a drop safety feature, there is a possibility that when dropped the firearm may still discharge. Be careful out there.

First time there. Really nice place and nice weather of course.

On the negative side - they have a LOT of homeless people. Really detracts from views of the city. A "Big Money" city, but too many homeless walking around.

Would NOT want to go to any of the bars where these people were walking around and "camping" outside of.

I hope some who commented in the earlier post learned not to jump to conclusions and rely on early media coverage during police incidents. Now you know why the offender was tased.

Hoping both officers make a full recovery.

San Diego, home to a lot of military bases has a lot of retirees because of the great weather. On the flip side, if you are homeless what better place to do it rather then freeze your ass off in Chicago.

Just think: if the gun had gone off and hit the offender in the back of his own head - and killed him - everyone would accuse the cop of shooting him. NOBODY would believe "it just went off by itself when it hit the wall". This is why I don't do a lot of aggressive police work anymore. I don't trust our courts, the media, the department, or Rahm. But mostly it's because I don't trust Rahm. He'll throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. And people wonder why crime is getting so bad.
Go Chicago!

I have run into many a fine "lost soul" who had more than one "lead projectile device" on their personage. Luckily in this case taking a single weapon for granted turned out with just one officer being hurt.

As more of the lost souls realize they will be able to move about with multiple weapons without challenge due to the alphabet (ISR, ACLU, DOJ...) guides, a similar result may not in the cards.

Bill O"Reilly had a liberal from San Franciso on The O'Reilly Factor this week and they discussed the surging homeless population and crime in San Francisco. I didn't see many homeless in either city, San Diego or San Francisco when I visited there years ago. The soft on crime liberal didn't see a correlation between the increase in crime and homeless population naturally. It was reported that San Francisco is short of police officers as well.

Speedy recovery to the Officer who was shot on duty. The idiot who threw the gun is very fortunate that he didn't kill the officer and that he wasn't shot. Glad that the idiot won't be getting out on bail. I'll remember the jurist if she's on a ballot in the future.
