Horseshit Headline

We had no idea this was a requirement nowadays:

  • Two of the Chicago police officers who were stripped of their police powers over the controversial killing of Paul O’Neal last month each have less than four years on the job and had never before fired a gun at a person while on duty, the Tribune has learned.
And? So?

We guess cops get a freebie before we're allowed to shoot at anyone? We know coppers with 30 years who have never ever fired a gun at a citizen, a foreigner or even a dog. We're going to imagine they're going to be a little pissed off.

We have a list - would that be inappropriate?

Does anyone know if the late offender had ever tried to steal cars before? Flee and elude police? Run over cops? All fair according to the Tribune.

How many bosses have never fired a gunshot in years even to qualify?

This has to be the most idiotic article I have ever seen. They say this shit like its shocking that these police never shot at someone. The stupidity in what we call journalism these days is frightening.

I heard this and thought the same thing - 'so what'? Would it be better if they HAD previously shot at real, live humans? Wouldn't they report 'trigger-happy cops who've shot at humans before'?

The media's gone giddy with all this anti-police hysteria. Say something! Say ANYTHING! Just make 'em look bad!

And on the flip side, they want to hang Policemen who
work/worked ghetto districts who have been involved in multiple
shootings and other use of force incidents...

"You Cops are so quick to resort to your fists, boots and guns.
You don't give members of the community time to vent their frustrations
toward you before you start beating and shooting them. Why don't you Cops
step back and let them express themselves?"

Horseshit Headlines stink
no matter which way they're made to spin.

The Offender was using the vehicle as a weapon....Innocents or Officers could have been maimed or killed. Instead of giving up, the guy ran for his life. Now look...these Coppers will be gone too.

Well Heck! As a kid I fired my Mattel cap gun six-shooter lots of times at other kids. I learned to duck and to hide behind cover and try to not run out of ammo.

When I didn't have a cap pistol to point at the other kids we just pointed our fingers at each other and yelled, BANG! BANG! BANG! We never ran out of ammo then. Or we could put a Band-Aide on our finger and it was a silencer.

But kids playing like that, today, at school, BIG TROUBLE.

How can they be blood crazed murderers if they never shot anyone before?

Back and forth and back and forth and back and forth...

This is called "spin."

Is the implication that A. policemen are not themselves citizens and B. should get in some practice rounds (30/allowed/yr) at the actual citizens/non-citizens before calling in "shots fired by the police?"

Call it in, you're done. Don't call it in, you're done worse.

Let the LaQuans, as so adequately depicted running like holy hell, waving knives, in the mostly unseen dashcams, run wild until they get flattened by some truck backin out.

"Arrived on the scene moments later, this is what we observed from our vantage point."

I was thinking about that headline, and is it possible that they were trying to do the officers a favor by stating they'd never shot anyone before this shooting?

Was at Juvie court yesterday and as I was waiting for the court officer to return from their break I noticed a little something on the desk down there. You see...they also process subpoenas, search warrants, and arrest warrants and there it was. It was an arrest warrant for O'Neal for ARMED ROBBERY that was waiting to be inputted AND, wait for it,...... dated the same day he got kilt!

Apparently O'Neal met his maker before the warrant could be inputed but it was good to go!

P.S. Not a RUMOR!

I like Flubune better. They have many, many more incompetent "journalist's" than the State has police officers. I'm going to do my story behind a computer search of what others said they saw, rather than going out and investigate a story.

Hey Flubune, SCC has given you idiots more stuff to investigate, but they didn't teach you how to do that at Northwestern School of "make sh!* up", did they?

Can they list the officers' names like that? I thought that was only done if they were charged with a crime.

I would overall consider that a good sign vs someone who's winged 8 people in 4 years. Then again if they did that they would be boned because they would be portrayed as "too aggressive" even if they were all 100% justified.

Without reading the article the headline could be interpreted that they are not aggressive, gun happy cops. Just saying.

Ignorant civilian here:

fwiw i read that headline as Mildly Supportive of the police involved. Told the world they had no prior history to be held against them...

The headline writer does not always take his/her cues from the journalist, so at times they can modify the crappy spin imposed by the crappy kumbaya-chanting journo.

We need to implement a realistic, shoot at civilians training program at the academy. We should not be graduating ppo's who have never fired at civilians.

Here is a great headline:
Trump Plays the Role of President in Louisiana! While barry is busy golfing as people are suffering, another poke in the eye by barry and criminal hillary at least Trump shows up!

Then you have first thing Trump did, "Thanks first responders":

Before he even left tarmac he thanked us he really is pro-police, when he spoke out in Milwaukee and told the scum bags black lies murder crew "Under a Trump administration this ain't going to happen" as sheriff David Clarke (Such a great real leader) echoed Trump's stance.

Trump is the only hope for the future if your anyone with any common sense and even the thought of voting for criminal clinton please seek mental evaluation now!This crazy liar will completely finish off ruining America as barry has started. Think about your children the next president will appoint up to 5 new supreme court judges influencing this country for the next 50-60 years. Trump will appoint strict constitutionalism while bumbling clinton will appoint more to continue the ruination of America! "make America great again" is Trump's mantra vote Trump!

OK. You think the Tribune is gonna pay for that ticket? Here's a clue from the real world dick slap. When you ticket somebody, the employee gets it taken out of their check. I get my paper delivered you cheap fuck.

In over 30 years on CPD not once did I ever hear an Officer say"Hey I want to shoot someone today especially a black man. I know good Officers who had to shoot someone it affected them all negatively divorce,alcohol, and drugs.Some of these Officers were able to make it back some not. So to all those assholes that think all the Police want to do is kill minorities Fuck You.

Our military has infantry laser training simulators and soldiers fire at each other as they move through towns and buildings.

What do at do we have. Thirty rounds at a paper target.

What, is training & policy going to change to correct this perceived deficiency? Come on -- police aren't even supposed to talk to anyone anymore.

You're right. Today's dumbest headline.

Yeah, they are working on the idea of a "Special Subject List" for "high-risk police." This will push Rahm's "fetal" to new depths of inaction. Absolutely no point in risking everything doing a job of police work against the worst society has to offer -- the various rabid animals who, by their actions, demand to be put down if the rest of us are to live -- when a hard charger has the dice loaded against him from the get-go.

Make the bugs go away somehow, but it's your a__ if you succeed in doing so.

Not much of an incentive here, huh? Best not to shine your light under the sink in the first place.

Beat people in the head with a claw hammer teaching them "fetal" lessons, then affect to be greatly shocked when they don't bring in much...

"Po-lice drive on by! Don't care 'bout us!" Your "spokesmen" are demanding de-funding and de-policing. You got schizophrenia. Take two aspirin and call us when it passes.

I have two uncles that drove for the Tribune. They both laughed when I told them that coppers thought that the Tribune cared about the drivers receiving traffic tickets. They told me that the Tribune could not care less about a driver receiving a ticket and that there was no way the Trib would pay for it. THAT'S why they gave coppers free papers. Because if they didn't, coppers would not look the other way when the Trib drivers were driving the way they do. The only people that get hurt when you ticket a Trib or Sun Times driver are the drivers of the truck, NOT the paper companies. Now I have no dog in this fight but it does make me laugh when I hear or see guys say "lets ticket the driver" when they are trying to get back at the Trib because to quote my late uncle, "The Trib doesn't give a fuck".
