Shooting - South Side

  • A suspected robber was shot Friday morning on the South Side after a Chicago Police fugitive task force tracked him down, officials said.

    The man was wanted for a holdup and a parole violation, [...].

    Officers set up surveillance near 119th and Sangamon; when the man left a house, he spotted them and ran about 9:30 a.m., police said.

    Chicago police investigate the scene near 118th and Sangamon Friday morning where a Chicago cop shot an armed suspected robber.

    After a foot chase, the man pulled a gun, and an officer fired at him several times, striking the man in the lower abdomen. The suspect dropped the gun and tried to run again but collapsed.

    He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was listed in stable condition after surgery, police said. The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating, which it does in every police-involved shooting, he said.
The community is already lining up behind the robber though:
  • Police warned her not to leave the house and told her that the fugitive had thrown his gun onto her driveway after trying to climb a fence separating her side yard from a weedy patch of a vacant lot. Blood spattered trash and weeds lay at the base of the eight-foot fencing on the side opposite Michael’s house. Police also asked to see video from security cameras Michael had mounted on the side of her house.

    “I didn’t see anything (on the tape) because it was on the other side of the fence,” Michael said, regarding the 30 feet or so between the fence and her driveway. “How he could be on the other side of the fence, and the gun could be over here, I’m still trying to puzzle out, but that’s what the police said.”
Um, they told you, he tossed the gun over the fence. You know, to avoid having the cops find it and charge him with it, along with the Attempted Murder/Aggravated Assault felonies that should put him behind bars for another day or two under the Prickwrinkle system. But you keep "puzzl[ing] out" that one Sherlock.

A better quote in the paper is from another neighbor. SMH, you run in order to be by people when the Police arrest you. I guess so it can all be captured on cell phones.

“If the dude ran from police, and he had a gun, then that’s not good, man,” Bins said. “If you’re not doing wrong, why run? But sometimes you run so you be where people can see when police come for you.”

Was he turning his life around?

I heard that is the fourth leading cause of death in Chiraq.

Ask her for her FOID and all the other required paperwork.

If it isn't his gun, it must be hers.

Somebody get the building department out there. Can't have anything taller than a six foot fence in the city.

He needed that 9mm to turn his life around! Shame on him for discarding it like that! Maybe if someone would have asked to see his Concealed carry permit and FOID card this whole thing could have been prevented. Then again, maybe they should just turn him loose on a littering citation and let him go about his business of robbing, maiming and killing.

Thank God the good guys are OK. I would really like to see what a "swarm" of police officers look like. The skewed reportage makes you want to pull your hair out. Let the ghetto consume itself l, they are not worth the effort.

I'm thinking that he will go to trial in 2 yrs and with the Attempt Murder/ Agg Assault alone he will get 6yrs of which he will do 3 but already have served 2 + 1 Preckwinkle yr, which leaves us at TCS. For the officers that don't go to court that means Time Considered Served. Now that's Urban justice.

Almost thirty shot on Friday! Wait till constant nice weather. Add in Dart, Preckwinkle, Rahm, DOJ, IPRA, the department's b.s. and a touch of Foxx later in the year and presto--we'll surpass Detroit's malfeasance and violence. What a disgrace.

It's over policing in chiraq is dead! Funny how the paper covers eddie and johnny out last night wearing body cams, the bigger question is were they on at all times? Any secret coded words passed? How many isr's did they write? Show us how to be the police again boss! Don't care how many shiny gold stars are out, the respect is gone, now eddie again how about the lieutenants scandal any word yet? did you demote to restore trust? Crickets thought so!

Nice knowing that -- no matter what insane armed violence, what bizarre bleach-pouring, baby-whupping, puppy-burning, window-tossing atrocity you just committed -- you will always be among hundreds of instant friends coming down off the porches to shout "He din' do nothin'!," "Po-lice shot him in the air!," etc.

"I set out runnin' but I take my time

"A friend of the devil is a friend of mine..."

No snitchin'.

His red graduation gown got caught on the fence, and he was holding his mortarboard cap on with one hand and had a rolled-up diploma in the other hand, so his pants came the rest of the way down and he tripped over his untied shoelaces.

While you're at it, **puzzle** this Alicia; You... Are... A... Moron.

Really Thomas? Is that why they **sometimes** run from police. That's funny because none of us kids was ever taught that by our parents when we were growing up in the 50's and 60's.

Honestly, there's 'stupid' and then there's, 'Chicago Stupid'. It's a special kind of stupid.

ps: Chalk up another one for the Parole Board.

Why even talk to the media. The cpd should get rid of media affairs that would add cops to the street. All the media does is find the first crack head and put their bs statement on tv. Cut them off make them do real investigative work and maybe then they'll tell the truth

Bosses are still coming to a roll call saying we are low on proactive policing i.e isr's, movers and anovs. Are they living under the rock? Tell them to get the activity themselves if its so important. Only a fool would go out there and be proactive. Now citizens complain how we respond to our jobs. Your leg stand was wrong, you looked the suspect in a wrong way, you had your hand on your weapon, your tone of voice was wrong, we demand apology for the way the officer acted when responding to the job, etc...stay fetal!

Just make sure you don't call him a felon or convict. Might hurt his feelings, and we wouldn't want that.

According to the DOJ, all felons will be referred to as "persons who committed a crime". Felon is a big micro aggression.
