Another Shooting Video

  • Newly released video shows Chicago police officers running toward a suspect, then ducking behind fences and crouching on porches as more than 25 shots are fired between police and a man believed to have just shot his pregnant girlfriend on the West Side in November.

    "He's down, he's down, he's down," an officer yells after the exchange of gunfire with Richard Grimes, 33, in the 4500 block of West Washington Boulevard close to midnight on Nov. 27.

    Other officers start shouting it as they rush toward the gangway where Grimes was shot.

    The videos, much of it from body cameras, were released Friday by the Independent Police Review Authority as it continues to investigate the shooting. None of the footage shows the shooting itself, though some of it is from cameras worn by officers running to the scene, then checking on their partners.
This was a desperate individual who had just shot his pregnant girlfriend, killing the baby, and he probably would have done anything to get away. Heck, he did do anything, shooting at police, and he's currently rotting in Hell. An excellent job when it happened, and now that the video has been released, an even better job by the involved officers.

The videos are stunning and shows the animals the police deal with everyday, the police did a great job, it even made the national news.
But the local media won't show these videos much longer, it shows how dangerous this job is so this doesn't fit the narrative there used too.

Great job all around, not a cop, but is therapy offered for situations such as this?

Running towards gunfire, engaging the bad guy (who's trying to kill them), not running away. That's what we do on this job. Hey media, the next time you run your BS anti-police rhetoric, remember this video before you do. To all that were there for this one, great job. You make all of proud.

Absolutely SPLENDID Police response and teamwork.

Pay the joyful haters no mind.
They're still out there but thank
goodness there was a surprise
in the voting booth and some
semblance of Real Policing
can still be accomplished
in spite of the current state
of affairs.

Y'all Rock!
Stay Safe.

Very positive comments too. About time people start realizing the crap you all deal with to try and keep a lid on the powder keg. Every squad car should contain one BLM or other protester and be required to get out f the car on calls.

Media your daily preparation is here, see policing is dirty,scary,serious not like Hollywood lies and deception we run at the problem while media runs away and lies about what happened later! Hoping and praying President Trump signs something federally backing police that is tangible if not this once great city will continue to spiral down the toilet with carnage and mayhem, bloodshed everywhere! In the 1970's many people supported police with bumper stickers such as "police deserve a contract" and "we support our police" now nothing!

The elected in this city particularly have caused this along with the 24/7 media sensationalism and bashing of police officers you reap what you sew correct?

According to the DOJ this OIS could have been prevented if the Dept. would have had a foot chase policy in place at the time. This is the lunacy with the DOJ report and idiots like Lightfoot, Lynch and so called subject matter experts who are strongly advocating for a foot pursuit policy and its incidents like this - brave courageous acts of valor by the real police that these ignorant assholes will try to use to justify a need for such a policy.

Umm no thanks on riding around with a clueless protester/agitator. BLM knows who causes the violence and they know how their people act. They don't need to ride with the police to see it. They choose to pretend the police are killing unarmed black men for no reason and that the police are just a bunch of racists. The media then eats it up and regurgitates it for the morons across the country who can't think for themselves. No one wants one of these fools in the car with them.

Great job by all Officers! The public is getting to see what goes on everyday we come to work. I forget, did BLM come out in support for the unborn baby or the girlfriend? I guess those lives don't fall in line with lives that matter. Keep voting democrat.

Therapy offered ? Yeah right. Organized Crime Unit had 2 supervisors take their own lives within the same year. You would think that would be some sort of sign that things are not right. Not in Chicago !

The media has burned into the public's that the police shoot people for no reason.
And that the police shooting people is bad.

Yeah, all the blah-blah about sanctity of life, this guy needed killing.

Thank you Officers for your courage, commitment and bravery on a job well done.

GREAT JOB, Officers!
It's moments like this that make me proud to be a Chicago Police Officer!
Our hierarchy is a joke, but the real workers are still doing the job & doing a fantastic job at that!
Let's see if the slanted media will still be showing this video years from now like the lmd video.
I'm thinking no.
GOD bless and be safe!!!

Here is a link to the video from ABC Good Morning America. The ribune link has the wrong story.

If you want to read stories on the Chicago Tribune site but do not want to register do this. Go to the Trib site, look up the story you want, when it asks you to sign in, right click the adress in the adress bar, select copy, then go to Google, then past the adress into the Google search box,hit return and follow the link to the story! You will have to do this for every story you want to read, but it's better than giving the tribune $$ to read it. Enjoy!

The media played this video on the subject of Chicago's high crime, and said in the end that this shooting is being investigated. Leaving its viewers to believe there was something wrong with the shooting. I saw the entire video, but the media edited it in their showing. Who the fuck cares about the media anymore, this was another great job by the Chicago Police.

Word is a team of CPD doctors arrived within minutes, knocked this citizen out, and took the kidney. The subject later woke up in his bathtub, packed in ice....

Laugh as you may but this shit goes on in China. The harvest kidneys from prison inmates.

This is what cops signed up for, ya know, catching actual bad guys! Look at the honor, look at the resolve to chase even though being shot at! Take a good look. Then, think about the crooked politicians who point cops at innocent people instead, especially in terms of revenue stream generation and political talking point statistics of the racial variety. Please see it all for what it is - the cops are the ones wanting to drop the hammer on the bad guys, the politicians are the ones dropping the hammer on the good guys.

CPD versus Rahm and company. Is there really any valid question who the real problem is?

The video made the better cable news outlets. Surprised rev's and libs aren't questioning the barrage of gunfire...yet.
Rahm's Murder Capital in November to January is hardly any different from June to August.
Rahm has done NOTHING in almost 5 years. The same ghetto bullshit and lack of leadership is even worse.
Special Ed is going away and taking his finger pointing racist finger with. Rahm's predetermined next choice is on his desk, the only thing holding up the next Supt appointment is Specials Ed's PAR and a strategic political scheme.
More important right now...refugees and immigrants, Rahm is looking for an angle.
Stay Fetal .

Killing an unborn baby isn't murder to a lot of libtards. I wonder if he was charged for that, if so that would make for interesting politics. Now we can decide which baby's are humans and which ones are not?

You really can't be the police.
Yes, there's a law against it, so we don't have to make an ethical call. Killing the fetus gets you charged.

!st let me say that I am NOT a Law Enforcement Officer. 2nd I would like to say
THANK YOU to all the men & women that do their job trying to protect the citizens
and keep our streets safe. I have watched these videos & a few others. It takes
A person with a lot of guts, courage & balls to do what you guys did in his video,
And what you do day in & day out.

IMO EVERYONE that thinks that there are problems should be required to work
In any of the 10 worst districts for 1 week to see what REAL goes on.

BTW Rahm is an ASSHAT

At the individual that make the comment of the two supervisors that took their lives last year from OC. Please do tell with your wise don on the issue on what caused one to take his life? because I would like to hear your thought la on what trauma led to it? Did you stop to think maybe it was his personal life? Or maybe the stress of working for the PD and working another job? Think before you speak because there are some that are in the know more then you are! And your facts and finger pointing are incorrect I guess that's why you are commenting as anon as to avoid being the one passing on rumors
