- Two Chicago police officers have been relieved from their police powers after Thursday night's shooting that left one man dead, according to the Office of the Police Superintendent.
A suspect behind the wheel of a stolen car was shot and killed by Chicago police Thursday night, officials said. The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office identified the person shot by officers as [a dead gang banging car thief], of the 1700-block of East 70th Street.
A statement from the Superintendent's Office said while the incident is still under investigation by IPRA, CPD investigators determined three officers discharged their weapons. It appeared that departmental policies may have been violated by at least two of the police officers, the Superintendent's Office said.
No rush to judgement here!
In case anyone isn't getting the message here, the community spells it out for you:
- Eric Russell, president of the Tree of Life Justice League of Illinois, said it was not justified.
"So how is it, a chase ends up in a homicide, and our kid, chased a kid down. These kids don't have visas. These kids aren't not going to skip the country. These kids have a small world. If you don't catch them today, you catch them tomorrow," Russell said. "We know that there is a precedence that our children are steadily being shot by the Chicago police and we are just outraged as a community."
The "community" has conducted it's own investigation, based on their vast experience of law breaking, and has declared, "if you don't catch them today, you catch them tomorrow."
Even the "community" is saying, "Stay Fetal." Run no plates, chase no dope, stop and question no one.
And guess who showed up at HQ to talk to Special Ed?
- Lamon Reccord is a friend of O'Neal and a well-known activist.
[...] On Friday, Reccord was escorted into Chicago Police Headquarters by the CAPS coordinator to meet with police executives about the case.
Curious company Lemon maintains - felons, car thieves, gang bangers, police superintendents.
It's over boys and girls. Until there is a wholesale shakeup in the political order, the loud and lawless have won. Let them sort it out.
One day, they'll demand and scream at the police to "do something!" And we'll whisper from our retirement home far away from here, "no."
