Police Fatally Shoot Man After Officer Struck by Car

Chicago Sun-Times via YellowBrix

July 09, 2010

CHICAGO – Police fatally shot a man Thursday after an officer was struck by a vehicle on the South Side, officials said.

The man, who previously was accused of battering an officer, was shot near a fast-food restaurant at 75th and Lafayette streets.

It is unclear whether the man was driving the vehicle that hit the officer, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police had stopped the man to question him. But the man attempted to drive away and was shot by an officer who feared for his partner’s life, officials said.

    Hmmmmm. 'Kay, hope that Officer recovers soon and fully. Now mayor Daley can grieve for his scumbag. Sorry, mayor, occasionally the good guys DO win, even in your sorry city.

    Speedy recovery officer. The "Big Sleep" for the scumbag and a new mailing address.

    Nothing wrong with a little shooting... as long as the right people get shot.

    Good for the officer who shot him... I'd be glad to have him as a partner anytime. Hope the other officer gets well soon.

    "But the man attempted to drive away and was shot by an officer who feared for his partner’s life"

    It may not be but that sounds like a load of BS, sounds like our good old double standard is at work again.
