Video Release (UPDATE)

  • The Independent Police Review Authority plans to make public this Friday videos related to the fatal police involved shooting of Paul O’Neal last week on the South Side, authorities said.

    Though the fatal shooting itself was not captured on video because the officer’s body camera failed to record it, the video materials are related to the shooting that occurred in the 7400 block of South Merrill Avenue on July 28.

    IPRA made the decision to make it available on their online case portal, www.portal.iprachicago.org, at 11 a.m. Friday, according to [...] a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department.
We suppose there isn't anything overly inflammatory. The "conspiracy!!!" nuts have ensured the pump is primed by their baiting, but this is the safe political play - if there's nothing on the tape, Rahm can safely release it without provoking an over-the-top response from the "community." Don't doubt for a second he's playing all sides.

We'll see this afternoon.

UPDATE: Well, we can say we were mistaken - this is not "nothing."

It is something and that something is a mess.

More shootings in LAKEVIEW overnight. Man this has been a bad week for 019. These 2 shootings overnight at Belmont/Clark, homicide of an unintended target (grandma) in Uptown, another Lakeview shooting, carjacking in Lincoln park, shell casings found in Lincoln Park, tons of robberies in Wrigleyville area. Just wow. If this is happening in the "good" area... Anyway quite a nice thing residents get in return for those prop tax increases from Rahm.

The Dr. Drew show on HLN is very anti-police. He will usually have a panel consisting of 2 "community activists", 2 defense lawyers and an anti-police comedian all ganging up on one former copper. Therefore, the copper only gets a few words in when he is overwhelmed by the rest of the panel.
However, a great thing happened a few days ago. A lawyer on the panel (who is not connected to the case) was complaining that the officers involved in the shooting of the women holding the 5 year old were not wearing body cameras. She further complained that SHE was unable to view the incident as it happened to determine if the officers actions were legal.

The copper proceeded to shut her the fuck up when he said the shooting was a real life incident and any videos connected were not there for her personal entertainment.

I know my retelling does not capture how stupid she looked, but whoever the copper was, BRAVO!

Chicago police warn violence against law enforcement possible after shooting video released

"Chicago police have warned their law enforcement counterparts across the nation that the release of body camera video showing the fatal shooting of a black man by officers may cause violence against law enforcement.

"According to a memo seen by FoxNews.com, authorities said making the video of Paul O'Neal's death public, coupled with the Aug. 9 anniversary of Michael Brown's death in Ferguson, Mo., "may cause an uptick in violence against police nationwide."

They do capture what it is like to be driving along fat dumb and happy when the call comes out and you are suddenly "full speed ahead"- listen to the partners as they navigate to scene, watch officers running, meeting obstacles and still pushing forward. See them walk back to their car- as the bosses, detectives etc arrive and the incident plays on.

On WGN's Channel 9 11:00 AM news, they basically turned over a live press conference to the lawyer of O'Neal and, ... wait for it..., Special Ed's BFF, Ja'mal Green. Without ANY interruption whatsoever, WGN carried these two clowns using inflammatory language calling police "cold blooded murderers", outright claiming a police coverup, giving THEIR interpretation of everything THEY saw on the body cam clips. Keep in mind that at that time, NO ONE else had seen ANY of the video. So now, as the video begins to show up on the newscasts, everyone is going to be watching what they were told is an outright cold blooded murder committed by the police. And that fuckin' Ja'mal Green acting like he's THE voice of the people. The damn media is just bought and paid for in this town!

Other then all that it was an excellent use of tactics. You fucking kiddie cops gotta learn pulling a gun out is a serious business. Let alone pulling the trigger.

The media is pushing the narrative of poor innocent black boy gunned down by racist police for simply existing. All the while they completely ignore that he was driving in a stolen vehicle, striking police cars, narrowly avoiding officers and committing multiple felonies. Thankfully the media was able to obtain a better picture of the lad so now everyone can see that he wore a cap and gown once instead of the picture they had up before. Our society is fucked when we mourn for the loss of gangsters and castigate law enforcement.

Well I sat and watched all 12 videos. Now IPRA has reduced it to 9 videos. WHY?

I watched an offender driving and using vehicle to evade arrest, offender used vehicle as a weapon by striking CPD vehicle and then crashing into another CPD vehicle. ALL on video. That is what started shooting.
Offender then exited vehicle and ran on foot jumping fences until multiple shots are fired but there is no video showing the shooting. Only after the fact video.

Video shows officers discharge handguns at offender/driver of vehicle when offender/driver attempts to strike CPD vehicle and officers.

My view is that offender was trying to get away. And that he would be alive now if he stopped. Charged with PSMV or knocked down to CTTV. BUT ALIVE.

Concern 1. Officer having handgun drawn while still inside of vehicles during vehicle chase. Where was threat? But the radio traffic has not been released and could give reason to this weapon being out of holster?

Concern 2. Discharge of handguns when car has struck first CPD vehicle and officer and driven past officers. This is where other officers downrange from this first contact may have felt they were under fire from Offender vehicle?

Concern 3. Officer who discharged weapon at offender in yard believed that this offender may have discharged a weapon at other officers prior to being stopped and may still have this weapon on him.

This was in no way a homicide, this was a flowing situation that started as a traffic stop of possible stolen vehicle. When the driver refused to stop he chose to use the vehicle as a tool, to aid his escape from the officers. When handguns were used by officers during this incident it was a form of last resort to end the threat. It has no matter that the offender was not armed when Officers stopped him. The offender escalated the matter and officers terminated the threat?


Retired with 30 years of writing up officers involved shootings?
I will see you at the fund raising event.
Since City will blame officers for this entire matter.

I have just watched the videos on Chicago Tribune. Spent about an hour on them. This blog (prior to seeing the videos) has made a guess that there “isn’t anything overly inflammatory.”

This blog was right . . . . and very wrong as well.

I saw a car thief refuse to pull over and flee. During the chase, the car thief nearly ran over a PO who was exiting his squad. The PO’s partner fired shots at the car after it narrowly missed him. The car thief then hit a police car head on and then the thief bailed. The POs in that car (already rattled and injured) gave chase after hearing shots fired (understandably not knowing whether or not they came from the car thief as the other PO had fired his gun seconds before they were hit head on). One of those POs shot the car thief in the back.

Yes nothing inflammatory. But that world is long dead.

Accompanying the videos I also read Tribune articles condemning the CPD response and praising the Superintendent for stripping the POs involved. The community is outraged.

Welcome to the New World.

In the working class neighborhood in Chicago I grew up in, this would not be “inflammatory;” it would be understandable. We regularly had “Officer Friendly” come to our Catholic school and talk with the kids. Many city workers were in my neighborhood; people looked out for each other. You got to know Sgts at Holy Name Softball, etc. People looked out for each other’s kids. I remember one resident dirtbag who was finally given a choice by a judge at age 18 (prison or Marines). Everyone acknowledged (even his own family) that guy needed to go away.

Again, not anymore.

You have to know when you’ve lost. I admit that I’ve lost. That neighborhood no longer exists; a crime and drug awareness sign now stands outside my childhood home. Trump - he’s finished. I cannot believe the implosion that has occurred with him the past 2 weeks (it almost seems by design). President Clinton will change the SCOTUS for a generation at least. Chicago will always be democrat; soon the nation may be that way as well.

I’ve lost.

So how do you exist in this New World. Your world has to become smaller. Your world needs to revolve around your family and friends. Your focus should be your kids, your wife, your God. A little league game should become of utmost importance, family game night, going to the movies. Follow sports - taking your kids to a game. The politics, the social justice marches - let them become background noise. The sad reality of the world in which you must live creating obstacles and problems that you have to learn to exist with like others who live a harsh environment.

What about your job? Treat it as a job. No different than a person who does some non-fulfilling work but “hey, it pays the bills.” I know many of you have no choice. You’re CPD for 15-20 more years. You have to support your family. Good. But do the bare minimum. Don’t worry about about someone’s stolen luxury car from Bolingbrook. No one will blame you. The rich guy from the suburbs will get a new car; his insurance will largely pay for it. Even though he's far out from the city, he might have to learn how to exist in the New World too.

After the shooting, there was evidence that you guys know how to operate in the New World. The black PO who pointed to her body camera to remind the guy who shot his weapon that they are recording. The guy who shot saying (sincerely I believe), “God, I hope he’s alright. In this environment, they’ll crucify me.”

He knew what was coming, and he was right. Stop trying to fight; admit when you’ve lost. Now you just have to learn to live.

Not a Cop - Friend of Many CPD

The department policies over the last year's unfortunately have put new officers in bad positions. This is not the fault of the officers. Allegedly the officers involved have 2-3 years on the job-that's what we were told in roll call. If true, these officers did 3 cycles on street then did foot patrol for a year. No handling basic police work: domestics, disturbances, paperwork. Never been put in situations with experienced officers to help them. Suddenly with no training they are on a beat car in a crap district with no experience in the basics. Lot of those factors go into the situation at hand. The department has set itself up for failure and more importantly set the officers up for failure. Why foot patrol? For the illusion of manpower. Why can't ppo drive with experienced officers? Instead 3 deep with an fto. No way to learn. These officers have been failed from the beginning by the department. It's sad

Lets remember this individual wasn't no saint.. He was a CRIMINAL in Bolingbrook with his fellow offenders using STOLEN credit cards filling up on gas on several other STOLEN vehicles. I admit this doesn't look good. We are not allowed to chase stolen cars period!!! What was the sergeant doing? Is this another special unit given free reign to to whatever they want because they are clout heavy sons of supervisors. Or are these officers remnants of Mc Carthey's bright idea to not assign them to FTO's out of the academy instead put them in vans and dumping them in high crime neighborhoods without any street training telling them just be visible and look pretty. As for the race thing KNOCK IT OFF! Every neighborhood has a subculture of people that are dishonest and can't follow the laws of society. I blame the families of these individuals. Years of poor parenting and broken family unit and that is where the blame belongs. This is why we have such a problem and no on wants to address it. I have seen it in my twenty three years on this job. Now we live in a society that everyone gets offended about everything and its pathetic. Society is backing the criminal and feed into the bullshit these hate activist like Black Lives Matter and Jamal Green. There are bad officers and good officers that will make mistakes. I will use deadly force when confronted with deadly force and doesn't matter what race you are. A criminal will set his own fate when making the decision to use such force and willing to accept the consequences. I can say this for most of us we do not get ready for work and say, "Boy I want to go out today and get into a shooting or kill someone." There is the politics that play within this department that needs to stop. Officers that should have been removed from the hiring process, academy, or FTO training but were still allowed to proceed and hit the streets. Officers placed into special units ( true, narcotics, vice, gangs, etc.) that haven't had enough time and street experience in patrol yet were allowed because a bosses kid, political connections, or sexual relationships. Let me tell you college doesn't make you a better officer or boss. I have witnessed poor judgement on a daily bases made by these highly educated officers and supervisors unable to resolve common issues. The ones that really should be supervisors are officers that have time on this job, handled every type of messed up situation thrown at them and resolved it. Most of all have COMMON SENSE!!!!!

The above post makes the shooting justified by State Law. The only reason why the City of Chicago is taking any heat for any of the past shooting is because that arrogant pos Daley had all these bs general orders put into place just to appease his voters block. By State law you can shoot a fleeing forcible felon.

DEPARTMENT PROHIBITIONS FOR USE OF DEADLY FORCE
Use of firearms in the following ways is prohibited:
A. Firing into crowds.
B. Firing warning shots.
C. Firing into buildings or through doors, windows, or other openings when the person lawfully fired at is not clearly visible.
D. Firing at a subject whose action is only a threat to the subject himself (e.g., attempted suicide).
E. Firing at or into a moving vehicle when the vehicle is the only force used against the sworn member or another person.

IV. AFFIRMATION OF PROTECTION OF LIFE POLICY
Sworn members will not unreasonably endanger themselves or another person to conform to the restrictions of this directive.

what everyone in the media seems to misunderstand, on purpose mind you, as they focus on the letter "E" is number IV there...the orders are guidelines...That fact doesn't excuse errors, but should enter into discipline. Officers have no due process any longer. We have laws, orders and use of force guidelines, but now we are expected to know every political motive before doing the job.

for Firearms/Use of Force training.

Target Discrimination.
Shoot/Don't Shoot.

All have fallen by the wayside because Rahm figured public safety
isn't worth the budgetary expenditure on CPD.

"Lookit all the MONEY we WERE spending on those Cops."

"Lookit all the MONEY we're NOW spending to settle deadly force lawsuits
because we cheaped out on training those Cops."

The lack of firm commitment to TRAINING is going to lead to more Policemen

2:27. You are absolutely 100% correct. This was bound to happen. The fto program 3 deep is bullshit. Then off to operaton impact. They really screwed these coppers. Then leaving them on days in districts instead of going to 3rd or 1st watch and maybe learn something. No they are on days taking crash and burglary reports. While some copper on another watch with time on can't get on days. The bosses making these decisions have their heads up their collective asses. These kids don't know anything and it's not their fault!

Thank you. These Officers have suffered trauma and they are the victims of this out of control career criminal. The criminal had more years of experience comitting criminal acts than the Officers had on the job. This criminal could have murdered innocent people in that South Shore neighborhood by hiding in someones home and taking them hostage. I applaud the Officer, He did what the City of Chicago mandated him to do.

Prayers to all Officers! and Stay fetal

This sure is a mess, I don't want to weigh in on the shooting, I wasn't there and video never tells the whole story. But everything that happened after the shooting was completely preventable. Big mouth coppers flapping their gums with crystal clear video and perfect audio, SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!! So much for a cooling off period, these coppers didn't stop talking! Bosses & other coppers asking questions. At one point they have the clearly distraught officer do a walk through looking for casings ALL ON BODY CAMERA VIDEO & AUDIO!! Ridiculous! These Sergeants dropped the ball here, get control of that scene, isolate those involved officers, don't let other officers question them on video! This should be a training video in Sgt. school. You can't make a bad shooting good but you can minimize the damage.

"At a news conference Friday afternoon, O'Neal's sister, Briana Adams, 22, grew emotional as she told reporters that the family was devastated by what they saw on the videos.

"I want everyone to know that Paul had goals," she said, then lowered her head and began to cry."

Yeah, his first goal was to steal a Jag. Mission Accomplished!

His second goal was to get away, with depraved indifference toward the public and the police.

Fail.

Remember, according to the Supreme Court, anyone with an opinion regarding the first shooting officer's actions MUST do so from the perspective of the shooting officer. NOT from that of someone sitting on their Lazy Boy.

From that officer's perspective, it appears as if the driver was going to utilize the vehicle as a deadly weapon against his partner. Totally justified.

Now...as per the Supreme Court in Tennessee v. Gardner, that offender is now using that force to make good on his escape.

Since the offender is now barreling towards another responding SUV, the same officer, per T v. G is again justified in using deadly force

These guys look like a bunch of greenhorns running around with guns in their hands playing a video game. I'd be furious if I was in the squad car that got hit head on by the offender while a fellow officer is lobbing rounds down range at me. These guys sound like rookies and nobody seems to have a clue what the fuck is going on. I've worked for a few different departments in my time and CPD's training is bottom barrel. It's TERRIBLE.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I ask you all again why are some of us still jeopardizing our freedom, or paychecks? All this video did was give the media another reason to point the finger at us and not at the individuals who commit the crime. Learn to say fuck it. Learn to tell your bosses they can go be heroes. You'll be more than happy to write them in prison or say kind things about them as you still have a job and they don't.

Yes, the world is going to hell. But all you need to do is make sure your family is fed, sheltered, and happy. Let the rest of these assholes keep killing each other. And don't make their families wealthy at your cost.

Here's your RD#. Good bye. That's all thats required from us blue shirts.

Non-police commenter here, so take it for what it's worth. If I were one of you guys, I would absolutely go fetal. If the community does not want proactive police who work hard to keep crime to a minimum, then the community doesn't deserve them. Let them have donut-shop cops. We have seen enough good officers have their careers (and in some cases their lives) ruined, including some who made no errors in judgment whatsoever.

On the other hand, don't make the mistake of thinking that going fetal will keep you from absorbing blame. The Jesse Jacksons of the world will march when the police try to do their jobs, and they'll march when they don't. They have cried that their neigborhoods need more police resources, and then they have cried that the police are only hassling black males. Claiming victim status no matter what happens is a luxury enjoyed by certain segments of the population in America. So, the caricature of the buzzcutted robocop will be replaced by the caricature of the fat, lazy, Dunkin' Donuts cop.

But here's the good news: even though the sh*t will always roll downhill and land on you, you have greater job security than the politicians who rush to sell you out. Compstat struggle sessions will not result in the firing of 5,000 fetal officers. You can wait it out from the comfort of your climate-controlled cruiser until people get fed up with crime and elect leaders who will send you out to do your jobs, come what may. Or, if that day never comes, you can keep your head down, avoid unnecessary personal and career risk, and ride it out till retirement.

Best of luck to each of you, whatever decision you make. You really do have a lot of support, albeit among people whose opinions don't seem to matter much right now.

No scene control, no crowd control, no direction to the involved officers. The Sergeants looked dumbfounded.

Nothing good happens at the end of a chase. The Sgt's should have cut it off. The Sgt's should have expected that the Watch Commander or Acting W.C. or Field Lt. would enforce the G.O. strictly or they would get the talk about protecting the officers from themselves. But, there is no W.C. or Actor or Lt. that they work for directly, because Jodi and Gary destroyed the watch level leadership structure deliberately. This is what you get! Is this saving money and providing better police service? Glaringly, NO! We used to hate, or fear, the old Capt. Watch Commander but we all worked for him/her and knew what was expected. That is gone and the troops go to roll call not knowing who they really work for; who's the boss. DOJ should insist that each Watch has one leader, be this a Capt. or Lt.. More incredibly are the two officers shooting at the car, each other, and the beat car coming up the street! Why oh why did they get out of their car on foot in front of an on-coming fleeing auto? Why does this video remind me of the Lacquan video at the moment of contact?

O'Neal had at least two opportunities to stop the Jag he was in and surrender himself for the stolen car. Officers in full uniform sirens on lights flashing. Instead he chose to drive though the first police car and into the second then fled on foot. Where's the public outrage over this youths reckless conduct. Oh that's right not his fault all the police's fault. Take some damn responsibility for your actions. No one could say wasn't a danger to the public he was going to kill someone the way he was driving. Instead he ended up dead so be it. Lesson learned a little too late.

1. I'm thankful all officers weren't seriously hurt.

3. To all officers involved in deadly force incidents: Call a lawyer asap or the FOP's lawyer ASAP. Your attorney client privilege now comes into play, not even department cameras and body cameras have the right to record you! Period!!!! "Department Policy" doesn't override this or take precedence. Contrary to what these nickel dime lawyers that work for the Supt, Rham and the department seem to think.

These department lawyers who carefully craft these politically motivated general and special orders have never even tried a case in court let alone the shitter at 35th st. Don't say a word and gather your thoughts as the feds get to do..

Thats the first thing I said, not only did he almost shoot his partner, he continued to shoot at the vehicle after it was no longer a threat, thus resulting in other coppers to think they were being shot at. That guy needs to be punched in the face by several of his coworkers. Doesn't help that he already had his gun in his had long before they were even on that block. Moron.

Unfortunately the Sergeant's on scene failed to supervise and take control of the shooting scene. Sergeant should have had everyone turn off their videos since the event is completed, have officers guard the crime scene in the backyard and have someone stand with the shooting officer. The Sergeant should have got initial information as to what happened from the shooting officer and then wait for detectives to arrive on scene. Everyone should not be walking around having a conversation or making commentary on the police shooting.
