Unsuccessful Suicide by Cop

  • A Chicago police officer shot a man in the leg in Calumet Heights on the South Side early Sunday after getting a call from someone threatening suicide, authorities said.

    Just before 1:10 a.m., a person called 911 saying he was in a second-floor apartment in the 1800 block of East 87th Street and was going to kill himself, a source said. The caller said he had a 9mm handgun, according to the source.

    About 1:15 a.m., police arrived to assist with the EMS call, according to Chief of Detectives Eugene Roy. Officers found a man in the apartment "holding what appeared to be a handgun" and they told him to drop it, Roy said.

    The man pointed the gun at the officers, and one of them deployed a Taser while another officer fired his gun, Roy said. The Taser connected with the man and he was also shot in the leg, Roy said.
We'd just like to take this opportunity to remind future protestors that the police were called to the scene - they weren't looking for this guy. He was described as suicidal. The caller also stated he was armed. That pretty much dictates how things go from that point forward.

In any event, nice job by the Officers.

Sorry the officers had to respond. Unfortunately they don't have much choice, do they?

I hope he was aim was off and didn't intentionally shoot him in the leg. What the fuck is with the taser when shithead had a gun. That second guessing shit is going to get officers hurt or killed.

Good to hear Chief Roy address the media. Short and factual without the bull shit, unlike the Crisco Kid and Cisco Kid speak.

Maybe the "C and C" top two will remain mute until the first snow fall. The D unit will be doomed when Chief Roy hits the bricks in the fall.

Question ! Anyone see or hear from the former grandma chief from Settle that Rahm brought here ? She learned fast the Chicago way of being a ghost and knocking out 200 K a year.

It doesn't matter.

Black lives still matter.

The officer should have taken cover behind the sofa and talk the guy out of committing suicide by telling him to place the gun on the floor and then turn around so the officer could have hand cuffed him gently so they can take him to the hospital for a mental evaluation. Now if that was a white guy, that is how they would have handled it. But since he was black, they tasered him and then they shot him. #blacklivesmatterandwhitepeopleareevil

Will both officers be stripped "for their own safety"?

A tazer is NOT the correct choice when a gun is in the hands of the offender.

What frightens me is that an officer tried to use a taser to subdue an offender who was armed with a gun. CPD's de-escalation policy at it's finest hour. One day soon, the true result of that policy will be a cop's funeral.

SSC, please try and keep interest in this story and search for updates as I will. The narrative by the girlfriend differed so much from the officers report. Body cams were said to be on scene. A good story of bias witnesses and sensational reporting if coppers have suicidal man with gun in hand

I feel for the responding officers.
Hopefully, they were donned in vest and helmet.
One never knows these days. Many are seeking the ghetto lottery.

If someone has a gun in their hand don't fucking grab the taser.

A taser should NEVER be utilized when an armed subject brandishes a firearm, or even dares to point it in the direction of another person. Period!

Tasers deliver electricity to the CNS, which is all but guaranteed to cause involuntary muscle convulsions. A tasered subject with a gun in their hand and their finger on the trigger equals a discharge of the weapon. What kind of can of legal worms would such a situation open up? These are NOT the times to try to be some sort of trailblazing test case to establish a precedent, regardless of the outcome.

I don't see a problem here, as of 02:04:00 PM, there seems to have been 17 other coppers there besides the two who acted. I'm sure they would all not have criticized the action taken having been there. They could've all just bum rushed !..I'll wait and see at what point the hand reached for the pocket or when the gun became visible.

It's a fucked up place to be,especially today,the last thing either one of these coppers need now is criticism from their own. I understand it may be Monday morning but rushing to judgement is the foundation in which your opposition is building their mantra on. Wait for the facts,watch the hands. At least they went home.

OT--but who was the retired black officer debating the retired white office on "Chicago Tonight"?

talk about a racist, anti white, anti cop asshole.

The white guy cites statistics he pulled from the Washington Post and because they don't fit his narrative he dismisses them.

The Post is the most liberal major paper in the country and certainly not a friend of the police.

Of course, Carol (I hate the cops) Marin was laughing

That "retired" [before he was fired] guy is Wooten. He is trying to inject himself into every racist debate that comes along. Naturally, he started a business to address these race issues. Give him (I mean his business) money, or you're a racist.
