Get well soon! Lots, and I mean LOTS of citizens were giving their well wishes to ALL OF US at the scene. The tax payers are sick of this shit, too, and they let it be known. A few even hoped aloud for the Offender's demise. Truly refreshing.

From a black man...

Just heard on the news that this officer should be OK with some rehab. I am glad for that.

When will this bullshit Black Lives Matter violence end, please? Why would any of us subscribe to this bullshit?

Tonight's armed and violent BLM member will never commit another crime. I hear he has entered hell tonight.

If you support black lives matter, then take it from a black man... you might as well join ISIS. Both are TERRORIST group...and pussies.

Time to respect authority. Our society would be in a much better place if we did that. When white/brown/white officer tells you to drop your gun, just drop your gun. Don't MAKE him shoot you. He doesn't want to.

Fuck black lives matter.

As of late, I'm ashamed to be black.

"But IPRA's ruling suggested the officer might have avoided killing the man if he had first warned he was going to shoot."


Pretty PLEASE! With sugar on top. Stop or I'm gonna shoot.

My heartfelt prayers go out to the injured officer. As a law-abiding tax-paying citizen of 18th, I would like to comment on something troubling to me. As I was walking my puppy in the NWMH area ~9:23PM (well after injured officer had been transported to Northwestern ER/was under the care of their tremendous medical staff), I took shelter from rain in carport of 259 E. Erie. I sat on public bench in that carport to wait out the downpour. Black tahoe IL plates Z49 5143 came at high rate of speed from south-end of carport; dropped off individual; proceeded at reckless speed to exit of carport and made left turn (westbound on eastbound street) and then proceeded to re-enter carport going southbound. Vehicle - sans lights/sirens - headed directly at me. I was fortunate to pull my puppy towards me and move out of its path. Had I not made that maneuver.. then my pup would be dead and I could have been crushed myself. Right passenger seat: black male ~240lbs ~5.10 wearing white cut-off untucked dress shirt/dark pants/black baseball hat/adorning blue lanyard exited vehicle. It was Eddie. Showing up for damage control presumably...idk.. but i have it all on video tape, and given my disdain for the man and all he represents - i'm tempted to release that tape. No lights/sirens. Was not code 3 @ that point. Responding to speak to press. What if he killed my pup or - worse - me? SCC, please advise on how to proceed here. I'm sick of BLM/sick of rank/file politics in this corrupt town/respect those that will respond should I have a real issue (although I'm not naive and carry 24/7 so I have half a chance). Again: all on video, and i'm sure someone would love to get their hands on that tape. I defer to you. Kind regards, citizen.

Funny thing that at the exact moment I was getting the breaking news alerts on my phone, regarding the police officer, The Donald was talking about recent attacks on police and specifically mentioning the number of shooting victims in Chicago! I almost thought he was gonna mention this during his speech!

I wonder if offenders baby mama gets invited to Hillarys convention on Monday? She can join the rest of the clown choir there to speak about injustice. By the way, Sandra Bland hung herself while in jail because she was a kook. And her family simply left her in jail instead of posting the $500 bond. The betrayal of her family who turned their collective backs on her for more than three days is what killed her. Her mother has no business speaking publicly at a political convention like her shit does not stink.

Pretty much makes me sick. For all of you out there that want these victims to get more free shit; vote Democrat.

If in fact that was fatty Johnson make a formal complaint or CR number go to media with your concerns he may be able to sweep this one under the table like his test takers. This will expose his real side to the public and embarrass the midget mayor who'll have to appoint another merit hack for the spot and of course jamal won't be happy either that his play daddy is making more headlines.

Great job by everyone involved. Glad the offender is dead and the officer is released and recovering. I saw the command van rolling toward the scene on my way to work and immediately thought a P.O. had been shot. It's sad that that was my first thought, and even worse that it was correct. Those are the times we live in now. Great work with the tourniquet and getting the officer to the hospital. Great shooting by whoever got the offender. All involved better get awards for their actions in saving lives and ending a deadly threat to the officers and the citizens of the city of Chicago. I'm sure Eddie the Idiot is trying to figure out how many should be stripped and who to visit to show that he thinks his officers used excessive force. Fuck you Eddie. Your ineffective leadership and siding with criminals caused this. You caused one of your officers to be shot. You failed the members of your department. You have made it acceptable to attack the police. You have done everything you can to try to scare your officers so that they hesitate to use deadly force when it is necessary. Luckily, the officers in this case didn't "de-escalate" in a situation where deadly force was necessary. You should hang your head in shame if you ever pull it out of your ass long enough to realize what you caused. You should be on TV commending these officers every chance you get. You should be speaking out against acts of violence against the police. You should try to educate the morons who cause the police to shoot them, instead of sucking their dicks after they force the police to shoot them. Better yet, you should just resign, because you are incapable of doing the right thing. You are the most ineffective, cowardly, criminal, useless, worthless, and brainless superintendent we've ever had. You have zero respect from your officers. At least the city is doing its best to ensure that you are in charge of as few officers as possible, by not hiring enough to keep up with retirements and resignations. Did you rush to the hospital just to go down to the morgue to apologize to the dead piece of shit? Did you have to rush away from a dinner with Jamal to get to the hospital? I'm sure you called him to express your regret that the officer would be treated and released. I'm sure your first thought was not of the officer's well-being, his family, or his recovery. I'm sure all you were thinking about was how to explain this to the media so that you can assure them that the officers will be scrutinized as closely as possible to try to find a way to fire someone for acting inappropriately. Fuck you and all your buddies. You are not the police. You are not a leader. You are not a superintendent. You are Rahm's bitch. You are Phleger's bitch. You are Jamal's bitch. You are BLM's bitch. You are the worst thing that could happen to the Chicago police during the worst time for the Chicago police. You're a failure and a joke.

Get well soon, officer. Just don't come back to work soon. You've earned as much time off as you want, and you owe this city and this department nothing. Worry about yourself and your family.

To the poster regarding the black Tahoe almost running him over, I was an administrative aide assigned to a high ranking police official during my police career and many times we needed to drive aggressively to get from point to point not realizing that we may be endangering the public.

as the social fascist wing of the Demonrat Partei considers liquidating police to be an excellent & Productive "propaganda" tool that they actually think will help them beat Trump, look for this heinous & vile assassinations to continue & increase as Nov approaches.

Next week could be really bad as the social fascist's gather en masse in Philly. They are packing the podium with rabid anti-police haters who will be encouraging more & more of these attacks...

Please be so careful & alert because the only folks supporting you are us l'il people & we have Zero Power & Zero Clout...maybe better yet: Shoot First & Ask questions later or Shoot first & be asked questions later because those who survive will be asked many many questions all designed to provide a basis to convict the targeted officers. If the military arm of the democrat party can't kill you, then the political arm of the democrat party will convict you...pretty simple & very symmetrical, concentric attack...right out of Alinsky's (another Chicongo favorite son) playbook: "Rules For Radicals"

"The shooting was another example of 'too many guns,' too many people willing to use them," Johnson said."

Too many guns!! Johnson, like obama can't state the culprits responsible for 98% of the shootings, It's surely not law-abiding citizens.

"Emanuel said he and his wife, Amy Rule, "are hopeful for a full and speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with the officer's family, friends, and his fellow brave men and women in uniform." WHAT!!! RIGHT!

My heartfelt prayers go out to the injured officer. As a law-abiding tax-paying citizen of 18th, I would like to comment on something troubling to me. As I was walking my puppy in the NWMH area ~9:23PM (well after injured officer had been transported to Northwestern ER/was under the care of their tremendous medical staff), I took shelter from rain in carport of 259 E. Erie. I sat on public bench in that carport to wait out the downpour. Black tahoe IL plates Z49 5143 came at high rate of speed from south-end of carport; dropped off individual; proceeded at reckless speed to exit of carport and made left turn (westbound on eastbound street) and then proceeded to re-enter carport going southbound. Vehicle - sans lights/sirens - headed directly at me. I was fortunate to pull my puppy towards me and move out of its path. Had I not made that maneuver.. then my pup would be dead and I could have been crushed myself. Right passenger seat: black male ~240lbs ~5.10 wearing white cut-off untucked dress shirt/dark pants/black baseball hat/adorning blue lanyard exited vehicle. It was Eddie. Showing up for damage control presumably...idk.. but i have it all on video tape, and given my disdain for the man and all he represents - i'm tempted to release that tape. No lights/sirens. Was not code 3 @ that point. Responding to speak to press. What if he killed my pup or - worse - me? SCC, please advise on how to proceed here. I'm sick of BLM/sick of rank/file politics in this corrupt town/respect those that will respond should I have a real issue (although I'm not naive and carry 24/7 so I have half a chance). Again: all on video, and i'm sure someone would love to get their hands on that tape. I defer to you. Kind regards, citizen.

It's not like he was going to chase down the offender. What a stupid move by both him and his driver.

I vote for releasing the video, since he's so big on second-guessing officers from old videos. Let the public decide.

Sometimes "there ain't no time for making speeches," as that great Emmylou Harris song goes.

...and besides, the classic way that so many fools get themselves killed is to respond by "turning and pointing a gun" when ordered to stop and drop their weapon.

By now, I have seen so many car/body cam videos of officers actually endangering themselves, backing away and backing away and pleading and yelling over and over again -- but some people simply will not stop coming.

Maybe "the officer might have avoided killing the man if he had first warned he was going to lunch."

Upload it to YouTube pronto. If Bolshevik libtard idiots and Bowel Movement Matters morons can use an iPhone to record coppers' every move, then so can officers and law-abiding citizens.

I'm just a citizen, so I'll say it: C.P.D.'s so-called Superintendent aides and abets criminals. Proof? Lil Ja'Mal is Numero Uno on Special Ed's cellphone. I still cannot believe this so-called superintendent would actually strip officers for doing their jobs and fulfilling their primary objective: going home alive. Is Special Ed a police officer, or is he a banger? Actions speak louder than words, and what this buffoon has done in record short time is criminal. In fact, where I come from, Special Ed is guilty of CONDUCT UNBECOMING.

Best Wishes to the wounded officer on a speedy recovery. The dead scumbag earned his early exit from this world. As Kurt Russell's Det. Eldon Perry says in 2002's DARK BLUE: "At the end of the day, the bullets are in the bad guys--not US." ;)

A Chicago Police Officer was shot, doing his job, investigating concerns of local residents.

Yet the Fibune and others won't make that the headline. They state the Officer was wounded or hurt in a shootout. As if he scraped his knee or cut his hand.

So blatant is the complete disregard for the safety of the Police in this city, from the Mayor, politicians and local media. Everyday we attempt to bring civility to this city. Everyday we are cursed, railroaded and labeled the villains.

Speedy recovery and good reaction from other POs. I'm assuming there was a brief struggle by shot PO due to lower extremity wound. I just look at the few stops I do and how much different and less safe we are. We often don't put our hands on people for fear of reprisal and ISR receipts. It's just bad, really bad. I know I'm not alone in saying I don't even know how to police anymore. I always did the right thing, stopped the right people and they always cried foul. They don't want the rules to apply to them.

To the poster that said:
"As of late, I'm ashamed to be black."

I appreciate the support. True, black people have said a lot of racist stuff to me but the way I look at it, they're the bad ones. However, there have been very kind and supportive black people where I work and I've had really good interactions. Don't ever feel ashamed for being black or however you were born. We are all Americans. We're just going through a rough time. The problem has less to do with race and more to do with a desire for civil disturbance and a desire to fight law and order...it's fun to these people. Look at the crowds...plenty of white and Hispanic agitators as well. Why? Because ultimately, it's fun and empowering to fight. People of all races relish in it and have been validated through media. Thanks for your support but remember we appreciate good people like you and that we have to stick together and not let the race narrative take over.

First, glad to hear the officer is OK and will live.

As of late, No coward police shooting/murdering Suspect has been proven to have anything to do with the black lives matter movement. There is about as much proof that black lives matter members are behind these calculated attacks this month as there is proof that police officers are choosing to exterminate black people in a calculated manner. Which is slim to no proof, whether anyone here wants to hear it or not. You won't see it here, because our protesters seem to be nothing more than college aged millennials, but protests around the country have turned in to cookouts with protesters and police officers, protesters hugging, giving handshakes and thanking police officers (even in DALLAS, right before the shootings). These shootings are happening because of ones own agenda or another movement they may be following.

And this is coming from a black Chicago police officer with 11 years on (and can prove it).

Oh well, at least Rahm won't need to send this one a letter declaiming his "good character". But remember CPD, and never forget, that "Rahm has your back!" ( with a bull's eye on it).

I am still getting in touch with everyone I can think of, from high circles to regular citizens, to make them aware of how Chicago's mayor is taking the side of a criminal who attacked the LEO of Chicago. Even if the criminal used a form letter from a year ago, everything Rahm has done has shown that he sides with the people who make your jobs more difficult and dangerous. It's a long proven pattern. This is a scandal, and I want Rahm to know that he's becoming famous amongst normal law-abiding citizens, for how he sides with criminals, including those who attack his own PD (not "his", but you know what I mean). He deserves to be famous for this. My daddy always said, "Never do anything you can't stand up for". Rahm just may have the arrogance to stand up for this inexcusable action, but I can guarantee that normal law-abiding Americans will never understand nor find any excuse acceptable. I assure you that we respect LE too much to think this could be excusable in any grounds, especially considering Rahm's record of throwing y'all under the bus.

I want him to be a pariah amongst his fellow politicians in other states. I know that's naive, but one does what one can. I know your fellow officers elsewhere are on your side, and mad as hell on your behalf, the ones I've spoken to about this.

Was not code 3 @ that point. Responding to speak to press. What if he killed my pup or - worse - me? SCC, please advise on how to proceed here. I'm sick of BLM/sick of rank/file politics in this corrupt town/respect those that will respond should I have a real issue (although I'm not naive and carry 24/7 so I have half a chance). Again: all on video, and i'm sure someone would love to get their hands on that tape. I defer to you. Kind regards, citizen.


How do you know it was "well" after the officer had been transported....under the care...)Is that your normal route to walk your precious puppy or did you walk over there because you heard an officer that had been shot was transported there. Were you there "camera" ready to get any type of footage you could? What exactly is "reckless" speed in your opinion? If someone in your family had been shot, is it possible your speed would be "reckless" in trying to get there and find out for yourself their condition? What is your disdain for the Superintendent based on, and just what is it, that you think he represents?? If you are sick of so much in Chicago, why don't you just relocate, you your pup and your camera..........

"They send one of ours to the hospital, we have one of them call the Police Supt. on his private number, who will then run over innocent people on the way to the presser.

"THAT'S the Chicago way."

You good. Go through a door with you anytime.

Man trying to do his job and get home OK for a kiss from his family and a cold one and a shower, not play Powerball on the GL.

All the best wishes. God bless you and yours, my brother, and stay extra safe.

"Officers, please be aware of your surroundings. The days of hiding in a hole with your paper and coffee are over, if you choose [to get caught up on stuff] at least keep the vehicle moving. Do not be a sitting target for these domestic terrorists."

...with the dome light on...

Giant he-say-she-say domestic that goes 19P but they still screamin, get four blocks away and around a corner and then get straightened out. Then come up for the rest of the same kind of mess on your box and see how much of it 19P already.

The woman who observed this goof's behavior and alerted the officers when she saw them as she was leaving the park is getting harassed on social media and being blamed for his death by the "community."

She wasn't the one sitting on a bench in the park leering at young girls. She wasn't the one who pulled out a gun and started shooting at the police.

The inability to comprehend the concept of personal responsibility is one of the major contributing factors to the decline of order within certain segments of society.

My heartfelt prayers go out to the injured officer. As a law-abiding tax-paying citizen of 18th, I would like to comment on something troubling to me. As I was walking my puppy in the NWMH area ~9:23PM (well after injured officer had been transported to Northwestern ER/was under the care of their tremendous medical staff), I took shelter from rain in carport of 259 E. Erie. I sat on public bench in that carport to wait out the downpour. Black tahoe IL plates Z49 5143 came at high rate of speed from south-end of carport; dropped off individual; proceeded at reckless speed to exit of carport and made left turn (westbound on eastbound street) and then proceeded to re-enter carport going southbound. Vehicle - sans lights/sirens - headed directly at me. I was fortunate to pull my puppy towards me and move out of its path. Had I not made that maneuver.. then my pup would be dead and I could have been crushed myself. Right passenger seat: black male ~240lbs ~5.10 wearing white cut-off untucked dress shirt/dark pants/black baseball hat/adorning blue lanyard exited vehicle. It was Eddie. Showing up for damage control presumably...idk.. but i have it all on video tape, and given my disdain for the man and all he represents - i'm tempted to release that tape. No lights/sirens. Was not code 3 @ that point. Responding to speak to press. What if he killed my pup or - worse - me? SCC, please advise on how to proceed here.

You, sir, are simply an ASSHAT.

A huge thank you going out to all in the 001st Dustrict who were on scene at this shooting. Everyone came together from getting the officer safely to the hospital to protecting the scene to be processed. Thank you to the citizens that stayed to give their statements of the events that took place. It was a great showing of everyone's professionalism while dealing with a very stressful situation. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side so a huge thank you to all who had to stand out in the storm while processing the scene. God bless the officer and his family and take all the time you need before returning to work. Proud to be 001st District CPD.

Never been real fond of police officers quoting movie mobster lines either. Given your diatribe, not a surprise though.

Many of these assholes were not raised with any concept of personal responsibility? What the hell is that? All they can understand is black man dead. Police killed blackman, police are bad. I mean it is simply that stupid. And there is nothing you can do about it. So when Hillary brings out Michael (the gentile giant)Brown's baby momma at their convention, I switch the channel to The Bachelor. It is not quite as mindless as his mother. She is a damn fool.

I'm with you, 1020hrs. Seems to be a bit of confusion between real life and reel life. Quoting a make-believe character seems pretty childish.

I respect this blog. I respect law enforcement and the CPD. I'm sorry I offended some with my commentary regarding my almost being hit by Mr. Johnson's Tahoe. Few bullet points in response to negative comments: 1.I'm born/raised here and not a suburbanite (although I don't think that should be held against one). 2. I live 2 blocks from NWMH and I walk my dog there as routine to see my father who is an ER doc there. 3. My disdain for Eddie; i'm too tired to get into it; those who know, know. 4. I apologize for using expression 'Code 3," which is a universally accepted response code; I understand CPD has unique derivatives so i should have specified; that said, if one reads radio transcript, then he/she will note that "Code 3" was used; I presume it was used to draw support from ISP (on LSD next to scene of shooting) and Northwestern Police (in area receiving officer casualty); 5.I know officer was in good hands because I was told so via text from docs @ NMHW; 45 minutes later Eddie showed up; I watched him enter ER and within 5 minutes he was back on street in front of cameras. 6. If Eddie killed someone in reckless response to press conference, then would that be justified? 7. I give up. God bless the good ones - the majority of CPD. To those that took my comments out of context; I'm sorry. To those who responded with harsh words because __fill in the blank__: go f' yourself and good luck. World has a tendency to work itself out. Cosmos. I'll continue to read SCC but am left numb to the ignorance of many who replied so harshly. End of day: it's not okay to put other's lives on the line to make it to a media appearance. There is zero logical argument to defend that position. Eddie doesn't give a shit. He had been playing golf, was impaired, did his press-conference song & dance, and then went to fuck his girlfriend before going home to his wife. God bless the good ones. The ignorant: get less ignorant please. Respectfully, citizen.

You did the right thing by calling out his poor driving. Never mind the haters here who feel compelled to justify bad behavior of anyone wearing a police star just because a civilian called them out on it.

Yeah we can see it. Jody nearly clipped me with his tank sb on Milw. Ave. one night. Mayor and high-powered motorcade known for driving like there's a nuclear war.

Glad you're OK.

I still like the old "Zone Of Silence" green-cross signs you can still see up by some hospitals, back from a time when something was still respected, back when things had some meaning. Rode up Stony past the old IC Hospital on my bike when I was a kid, and I was whispering to my Dad next to me...
