Learning Curve

  • A body camera worn by the Chicago police officer who fatally shot an 18-year-old man in the back last week was not recording at the time of the shooting, police said Monday.

    It’s not clear why the camera was not recording, police spokesman [...] said Monday.

    Moments before Paul O’Neal, 18, was shot and killed in the South Shore neighborhood Thursday night, he’d rammed the Jaguar he was driving into one police car and sideswiped another.

    Two officers fired at O’Neal while he was still in the car. [...] said their body cameras were working and captured the discharge of their weapons.

    A third officer — who police say fired the fatal shot — opened fire on O’Neal, who was unarmed, after he’d exited the car, hitting him in the back....
It is a well known fact that you function under pressure as you have been trained. You revert to habit. That includes bad habits as well as good ones.

Body cameras haven't been around long enough to be an ingrained habit. If you pull up on a hot scene, knowing that someone just tried to maim/kill police officers with a 3,000 pound vehicle, your first thought isn't to click a button, and certainly not to click it twice as we've been told that is what activates the camera. So it shouldn't be surprising that someone didn't do it perfectly the first time. That doesn't make it any sort of "conspiracy" as some bottom-feeding lawyer is already suggesting. But you know, they have to taint the jury pool as quickly as possible.

It sure would be nice to hear that sort of explanation from a spineless superintendent.

And it would be even nicer if he could get out there and correct the perception that the deceased car thief was "unarmed," He was behind the wheel of a automobile weighing a ton-and-one-half that he had already used it to destroy other cars in an attempt to escape. "Unarmed" is a loaded term meant to inflame, not inform. If he and his buddies hadn't gotten the idea they could steal four cars from Bolingbrook, a lot of this could have been avoided - but that would mean taking responsibility for their actions and you can't have that of the entitled ones.

The investigation should proceed according to the law and established rules.

I love how they report the news. This kid was a victim, this kid had a future, this kid had no weapon, this kid was good.

WAIT A SECOND!!!!!

This kid stole a car!!!

THAT is a felony. This kid tried to ram a cop car (attempted murder? maybe). This kid ran instead of stopping (trying to escape).

This "kid" was no "innocent bystander".

Message to "the folk" - when a police officer tells you to stop - STOP! When a police officer tells you to "Drop the weapon!"- DROP the weapon.

It's THAT simple!!! TEACH YOUR KIDS!

...not to mention the endless repetition of the "SHOT IN THE BACK!" meme.

The street today is not an 18th-Century pistol duel between noblemen, conducted on the village green with seconds and a surgeon in attendance.

As a matter of fact, some of these regents and barons and so forth were dirty motherf__ers who'd try to cap the other guy in the junk or something.

Hey Special Ed!

Since I know you read (or have this read) to you, here's my issue with you.

You condemned the officers actions when you should have stood by then! You STRIPPED them! Why! No one acted with criminal intent, except the shitbag driving the stolen vehicle. There hasn't even been an investigation! You make them guilty until proven innocent. You should've left the officers, with their 30 day desk leave (another farce), then allowed them to return to duty unless IPRA and the States Atty agree to any charges. You could've shown the troops you stood by us. You failed.

Instead, you take your matching orders from gangbanging community 'yute', revruns, and any activist with a social media account. Shame on you, you spineless douche!

Lots of luck getting any activity from ANYONE. I hope homicides and violent crime surge under your reign. You made it clear the only thing you value is public opinion.

No, he has zero connection to Michelle Obama by blood. If you're confused about how obamas name comes up I'll tell you bc knowing the facts are important.

Fact 1. I know the sup and he's a good man, but as his friend I'll say right to his face he's not meant for this job.

Fact 2. The sups first wife cheated on him with a certain exempt that is a cousin to Michelle Obama. That exempt was a jagoff and actually laughed when he learned Eddie discovered the affair. So whatever, that exempt is gone and Eddie Johnson is probably the only black guy in the Chicago democratic organization that did NOT vote for Obama.



Fact 4. Similar to a new parent, the new sup is learning very quickly you can't make everyone happy. I suspect the BLM bullshit is fizzling fast with the sup.

Listen buddy. This is not a nuclear submarine first of all. The radiation must've went to your brain. And the fact that something "does not wash" with your now civilian opinion based on the one sided factoids you've been reading from the media...well, we could give a shit. I was in the military too, for a decade, as were half of the guys and gals on CPD. We did everything and were deployed everywhere. But whether these coppers were in the military is either here nor there. These body cameras of there's WERE working, not broke as you put it, but on a 30 second non audio loop, until turned on. Going to the bathroom and turning them off is easy, because most of the time when you're taking a crap someone isn't trying to ram you with a 3000 pound hunk of steel. The point is, is that on THIS job, incidents happen extremely fast, from just driving around non chalantly, and then BAM, human reaction and instinct is to react with defensive muscle memory. Your training comes in. Basic defense tactics. We have only had these fkin cameras barely a few weeks now in most parts of town. there hasn't been enough time for this to sink in as repetitive muscle memory, and even if it had been a year from now it still is a valid excuse for anyone to not turn it on instantly if someone is trying to KILL YOU with a stolen car. When someone Rams your car and attempts to take your life with a 3000lb hunk of steel are you going to instantly think to press the button 2 times? No, your not. You react to neutralize the threat. Basic animal instincts. Go back to your nuclear sub, and stop believing everything you read. The media twists facts and jumps to conclusions. Our superintendent is a spineless coward, as well as our mayor. They don't want to upset "the kamoonittee" The city and the dept are lost, morale is 0. Lawsuits all around. Racist ACLU, doJ looking at all the wrong places, Kim Foxx coming, media ripping us apart and giving Father Faker more time than the President, Deano is nowhere to be scene.

Police Officers can use deadly force in making an arrest when the arrest is being defeated by resistance or escape and the suspect committed a forcible felony with the infliction or threatened infliction of great bodily harm. This is the law. Laws mean nothing today.

Our solidarity over a couple weekends will determine the terms of our next contract. The City is initially pushing for a PAY CUT and minimal hiring, let's show them how we feel.

Parents of teenagers jailed for opening fire on police officers blame Black Lives Matter saying the movement WANTS people to shoot at police

* Marquell Rentas, 17, and and his cousin Trenton Nace, 18, were arrested Friday for opening fire on police in Columbia, Pennsylvania
* The officers were not hit or injured by any of the bullets
* Police report states that Marquell told officers during the arrest:'I ain't no p***y, I was shooting at you. F*** you, police'
* 'They are in jail for doing what Black Lives Matter wanted them to do: shoot at cops,' said Marquell's mother Luz and Trenton's father Roberto Rentas

This may not get posted. I was in the military, on a nuclear submarine. We had training prior to boarding the sub, then constant drills. We were not allowed to make "mistakes" or people died. The handling of nuclear weapons and radioactive materials put lives at risk each and everyday. So to just simply say the body cameras did not work because oops human error or it was a mistake does not wash with me. Check your gear prior to coming on duty, make sure it works. Do not understand why you cannot let it run during your entire shift and just delete toilet breaks or lunch breaks from the feed. Not a cop but a citizen who wants this insane war to stop before it tears the city apart.

I am gonna guess that you were not on camera the entire time that you were working on the sub. If I am wrong I apologize, but the Police officer can not just delete feeds. Every thing the camera copies gets downloaded to the mainframe, so the camera can not be on the entire tour of duty. Also, you can not compare working on a nuclear sub to policing the Ghetto of Chicago. As long as no one pushed the launch button on the sub the radiation is contained. The launch button in the ghetto is pushed every few minutes. Thank you for your service in the military, but until you police the ghetto you should probably not make such judgemental statements. You are way off base.

ABSOLUTELY TRUE! But the ending was different. Laquan was carrying his H.S diploma in a kevlar case inside his hoodie and he wasnt't killed by the 16 shots. He survived and lived to advise Hillary Clinton on her presidential campaign. She learned that the police are evil and vowed to destroy them all. At her inaugaration, Laquan gets killed by a drunk Simeon H.S. Basketball player celebrating their regional championship. George Lucas is already buying the rights to the reenactment to make it his next movie.

Now have a look at the other side of the Channel to get an idea of one source of the threat. Why this "Calais Jungle" of 7,000 "migrants" is allowed right next to the port road, and right near the entrance to the Channel Tunnel, is anyone's guess. The Brits gave France over 65 million dollars worth of razor wire -- and the illegal arrivals in Britain have still tripled.

Going to the bathroom and turning them off is easy, because most of the time when you're taking a crap someone isn't trying to ram you with a 3000 pound hunk of steel. The point is, is that on THIS job, incidents happen extremely fast, from just driving around non chalantly, and then BAM, human reaction and instinct is to react with defensive muscle memory. Your training comes in. Basic defense tactics. We have only had these fkin cameras barely a few weeks now in most parts of town. there hasn't been enough time for this to sink in as repetitive muscle memory, and even if it had been a year from now it still is a valid excuse for anyone to not turn it on instantly if someone is trying to KILL YOU with a stolen car."

All standard pushback...Demean, diminish, insult, magnify. Muscle memory my ass. Yet through some miracle you manage to turn on the lights and call in. Call it what it really is, passive resistance.

Drill? It's the truth. You're making comparisons that have absolutely nothing to do with each other. As police, we don't care about your observations or opinions because they don't come from a position of experience or knowledge.

People have the right to express their opinion. The people regurgitating the liberal talking points end up low on the scrotum pole. Try expressing an INFORMED opinion instead.

We have only had these fkin cameras barely a few weeks now in most parts of town. there hasn't been enough time for this to sink in as repetitive muscle memory, and even if it had been a year from now it still is a valid excuse for anyone to not turn it on instantly if someone is trying to KILL YOU with a stolen car."

All standard pushback...Demean, diminish, insult, magnify. Muscle memory my ass. Yet through some miracle you manage to turn on the lights and call in. Call it what it really is, passive resistance. Because you still think there should be a valid excuse a year from now. If your paycheck depended on figuring it out, you'd have it down pat in 5 minutes.

All this above poster is demonstrating is the ignorance civilians have of our job and how easily they believe the worst; that somehow the body camera was intentionally not turned on. Sir, whoever you are, I encourage you to apply to do a ride along with police officers and see how fast situations develop. In a split second, I don't care how good your training is, you are still fallible and human. The last thing on your mind is having a recording for posterity. You revert to survival mode. I challenge you or any civilian reader on the blog to see up close and personal how the shit can hit the fan and see how you would react. Yes we ARE supposed to be trained to hit that record button. But the limited amount of training we get on this department is a travesty. We have to "train" on our own time and it takes a very long time to develop a habit sometimes months or even years. There will be bumps in the road until then and you have to expect it with new technology and training. So take your ill informed, undeserved criticism and stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

The military wouldn't put an 18 yr old in a dynamic situation where life and death scenarios are thrown at you every day ? Spend some time in the infantry in a time of war. I can promise we have seen more life and death scenarios than most cops. So stop acting like it's something hardcore or special to be the police.

Hey dickhead, half of us were in the Infantry. 11B and 0311 for years. We came to this job after Iraq and Trashcanistan. And on this job you see more blood sweat and tears in one Friday nite than one could ever imagine. We don't ask for anything but for your liberal ass to leave us alone and let us do our job. Now we can't without being scrutinized at every turn. So blu flu, and fuck you. Call a crackhead you fake ass POG.

You're a retard. And not a cop. Next time you need help don't call the police. Figure it out yourself since you're so amazing in your own mind.

This sock puppet is on a real rip here. He's a civilian, he's in the infantry, he rides on nuclear submarines. Even knows how to do "litmus tests." Oi, a chemist, he's.

Spare us.

You have got to be kidding me. Air condition, food, coffee, potty breaks chances to hide out, ride out few jobs. and you said more tears and sweat and blood than dudes in Fallujah etc. Gtfo. Despite my decision to be fetal due to this worthless city throwing us under the bus, this is literally the easiest job in the world. We answer jobs, listen to a few ppl yelling like children, once in awhile pull my pistol out. Do a report and go home. Yes officers get hurt, yes some nights are worse than others. But dear God stop acting like this is worse or even close to be in a combat zone 24 7 , no family , continuous gunfire and actual real scenario is.
I know for a fact most cops haven't fired their gun, nor would know what it takes to actually operate the m4. And no, carbine class doesn't teach you .

Hey nuclear sub guy...that's cute that your training does that for you. Is it true that on a sub a 120
men go down and 60 couples come up? In fact I'm beyond thrilled with your infinite knowledge of training and what we do. The truth of the matter is no one gives a f*** about your nuclear sub days. When it's life or death and you don't have a clue what an offender has the potential of doing shit moves fast. Basing your knowledge off an area and what OEMC says a "citizen" said they had. This is coming from someone who has done three tours in the shit-hole known as Afghanistan with a special operations task force. A number of us on here are veterans so don't give us your condescending shit. I wear a body cam and do you want to know how much hands on training I received besides 2 half assed e-learning courses? Less than thirty minutes so f*** you.
