"...a 25-year-old gunman who killed a civilian and injured two police officers before he was shot and killed by police..."

For all you, "I'm in great health" guys, go get a check-up. You may be benching 200lbs, run 5 miles, and have teeth so white the sun puts shades on when you step out the door, but that doesn't mean on the inside you are the picture of great health. Get a blood test, urine analysis, heart scan, know your PSA number, get that colonoscopy that you have been putting off, you just might be surprised.

Sheriff Dart never went to hospital or to visit the officer or his family. Bet you if it was a prisoner he would have gone to hospital. What an embarrassment to our department.

God Rest this Officers Soul, the county guys are good people and CPD and them always had a great relationship. This weather of humid conditions not seen before can take its toll on runners. Please guys, pace yourself, that heart of ours is fragile, Let us all try and make the services for this dedicated member of Law Enforcement. Pass that hat around too for the family,

This year continues to be a year of tragedy for L.E. God be with all of our brothers and sisters in the great USA.

Get a heart scan or echo stress test,,,it helps detect the "widow-makers" that some seemingly healthy and athletic people get suddenly and their Aiorta explodes without warning

Are you are a Medical Doctor? Maybe so, because I suspect that you are not a Policeman. I mean, after all, your extreme knowledge of Medicine combined with your first hand, eyes on knowledge of Jason's heath clearly speak to this; and this whole Police thing is beneath you, right?

Perhaps you were there at the Autopsy. Funny, I do not remember seeing you there among the tens of CPD, METRA, the DEA Agent, and Sheriff's Police Officers assisting in the escort and rendering honors in the rear of 2121 Harrison Street. It is September, and there were plenty of Bees and wasps over there by the gate and dumpsters. Guess you did not see that.

BTW: Heart Disease and Diabetes (along with a long list of other ailments) have claimed the lives of many fine Correctional Officers and Sheriff's Deputies over the years. So your assertion that "He should have been Working a Cell Block" is wholly invalid.

The stresses that CPD feels on the street are absolutely felt at the Jail and in the Courthouse. The Sheriff's Police who assist CPD with patrols and missions in the City also feel this too. We all need to remember this and plan our healthcare accordingly.

As I left the ME on Thursday after getting Jason there, I was about to get on the 290 to head back to the Square. As I turned off Western to go west, some little punk asshole was standing on the corner. He saw my unmarked squad and gave me two fingers and shouted something like -- Ha Ha, your Pig is dead! or some such thing. In the old days, I would have stopped and he would have had his head thumped upon. Not in 2016 though. No more.

Our worlds are different, but yet are the same.

Jason was a true inspiration to the many young men and women he trained, including myself. Jason was a great police officer and an even greater friend to all that knew him. He will be deeply missed and always remembered. RIP my friend. We have the watch now. Always remembered, never forgot.

01:02am - Dart the Fart did not go to the hospital since there were no TV camera crews. He will done his putrid jogging suit and show up at the funeral since he knows that the media loves to cover police funerals even though they don't love the police. The gift of the 19th Ward that keeps giving the citizens of Cook County poor law enforcement and treats his employees worse than the inmates.
RIP OFFICER & Condolences to the surviving family members.

45 is too young. They say life begins at 40 because by 40 years of age you have a greater amount of emotional, personal and intellectual capabilities. Rest in eternal peace.
