CPD Civilian Shooting

  • A civilian Chicago Police Department employee shot a man who tried to rob him at gunpoint a few blocks from Douglas Park on the city's West Side, police said.

    Police said the 57-year-old man was trying to get on his motorcycle around 6 a.m. Monday when two male suspects, a 31-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, walked up to him and announced a robbery near West 13th Street and South Sawyer Avenue.

    The older suspect pointed a gun at the CPD employee while the younger suspect went through his pockets, police said. When the teen tried to take his licensed concealed weapon, the victim shot man in the neck.
Nice shot there. But we don't understand this part:
  • Both suspects are in custody. Charges are pending. Area Central detectives are handling the investigation and the Independent Police Review Authority responded to the scene, police said.
IPRA? Why? They investigate and review police actions, not civilians. Hopefully, he told them to go fuck themselves. Again though, nice shot. More concealed carry, less criminals.

Isn't this the first or at least one of the first instances of a concealed carry holder defending themselves from these marauders? Good shooting.

Ironically, when you look at the Google Street View of that intersection, there are four cops standing there talking to each other, and another one getting something from a cruiser.

Ipra should have no standing whatsoever. This is a private citizen with a legal CCW. What if the victim was a Streets and San worker with a valid CCW? They wouldn't investigate that. Fuck ipra.

This whole situation could have had a totally different outcome if the "Victim" was not armed.

Charges pending? Let's see - attempted armed robbery, No FOID card or CCW (We better see those charges), and what else?

What about a HUGE News story, front page and lead-off story on TV - Concealed Carry WORKS WELL in Chicago!

Don't hold your breath!

Please keep us informed about his investigation. Does he need a lawyers fund?

"Trying to get on his motorcycle" - It was a few years ago that PO Thomas Wortham was fatally shot by several assailants in front of his parents home while he was showing his father, a retired Sgt., his motorcycle.
This civilian should consider suing IPRA & Rahm since IPRA has no authority over him, even though he works for CPD. IPRA has been pulling some real stupid stunts, such as distributing fliers seeking witnesses to a OIS.
A great twist would be to request the ACLU's assistance since they clam to protect everyone's rights.

I suppose the offenders told the victim to "give it up". Well I guess if you tell the wrong person to give it up; you got a good chance of gettin shot up. These idiots reproduce like rabbits but luckily have zero population growth. It's too bad these mutts survived.

Too bad the CCW holder didn't get both of them, so when the police got there, all they would have to do is call the above mentioned sanitation worked to come clean the filth off the street.
Stay safe Officers.

# LetUsBreathe POSTED a tweet that CPD killed Jon Mills yesterday. Eric Tendian/Twitter posted and contested /retweeted on his twit page . Then LUB scrapped that tweet asap. Tendian posted the scanner clip of officers asked to rush to the scene of that Black on Black shooting. LUB posted an apology but still blaming society OFR THEIR MISTALE in saying CPD killed Jon Mills.


Another Medill grad Daddy's girl, who freelances for The Guardian UK, posted a glowing sweetheart article about dope peddler Antwon Galatte of Pullman who tried to run down CPD officers in Pullman with intent to kill.
Medill is a garbage dump for rich kids who dangerously race bait clueless.
Second anti CPD mistake by a Medill journo against CPD in 10 days.

You do realize that IPRA investigates sworn law-enforcement, right, hence their title. Independent POLICE Review Authority. Glad this civilian was able to defend himself and is okay. What if it was a strong-armed robbery. The citizen should have to worry about someone getting their weapon and hurting themselves or others. The media would like to paint the offenders as victims. How about you refrain from robbing people or agree to pay the price in blood when you commit violent acts against the innocent?

Detention Aide is former Finance PEA and supposedly also a University (one of the south side colleges that don't let their campus cops carry on duty it seems) PO with a valid FOID and CCL.

My only advice is shoot center mass.

And Department member but non-sworn? Tell IPRA to go skip!

o' ipra was out posting Community Alert signs on light poles, that's all they're capable of doing, but it wasn't until 4 hrs later.
Ain't nobody getting up a 0600 understand.
Did the stand your ground robbery victim have a white sounding name?
That's probably why they came out and still posted their community alerts until they ran out of flyers.

Job well done with a CCW, too bad offenders will be back in the hood in a couple of Preckwinkled Foxx months.

Why do the white shirts keep asking if his weapon is registered?

That law has been eliminated except for are dumb asses on this job.

They could have dismantled to whole unit yet it still exist just to aggravate officers.

IPRA doe not even know what they investigate and are so happy when the Dicks take over a scene. yet the hover around soaking up overtime and doing nothing at a scene.

In the NYPD, we do NOT use the word "cruiser". A marked squad car is referred to as a "RMP" (Radio Motor Patrol)

Notify "Central" to send a "bus" to wrap on your "Bronx Party Hat".

While IPRA may have authority to investigate all Department membes, what authority do they have over this incident? The IPRA cover order is "Weapon Discharge Incidents involving Sworn Members". The civilian CCW is not sworn and is not in an official capacity. Does he have to answer? Department use of force apply?

Leave the case to the D and the CCSAO.

Some of you are just damn fools. It's really no wonder that we have so many problems. OK - understand this: IPRA investigates ALL incidents that involve the use of force requiring a TRR and ANY allegations of inappropriate/excessive use of force by a DEPARTMENT MEMBER. ALL TRR's get sent to IPRA, do not confuse that with a C.R. number. They are looked at and if it is determined that excessive force was used, they will come looking for you. In addition, they investigate ALL weapon discharge incidents, ALL of them. Spray, taser, firearm discharge incidents all require a LOG Number, no not a C.R. number but a LOG number, and they are looked at. Firearm discharge incidents require IPRA to report to the scene and investigate, also understand that they can, and do, investigate other incidents at the "scene". Example: Thug gets locked up, Mama calls IPRA and says CPD spanked my Baby! IPRA can go to lockup where thug is held and interview him, can then serve officers with Administrative Rights that night and get reports or require interview, of course the P.O. has his right to secure counsel so they would not be required right away. OK, schools out. Stay safe, and remember, Stay Fetal.

Seems like part of the story is missing. Obviously, the victim was cooperating and trying to avoid trouble. Just wondering if he thought the perps wouldn't find the gun. Doesn't say where he was carrying, but he was loaded and ready to shoot before the perp could get his hands on it. I would like to know a few more details about how this went down.
