Let me et this straight -- an off duty officer thinks a man has a gun in his hand so he shoots, hits the man in the hand, kills a young woman, and the man who had no gun is being charged with a misdemeanor after being shot for carrying a phone?

What in the hell is going on?

If the public stands up, gets involved and calls out for justice you know their just gonna get molested by a TSA agent. Because that`s what American citizens have let happen to them. This is what it has come to. Cops or Government start and internal investigation. They let it go on for as long as it takes for the majority of the public already involved to be more concerned with the next ipad to come out. nobody gives a fudge anymore. If you don`t believe that then ask yourself: Do you know the first middle and last names of all the families in a five house radius from where you live? Id say 90% wouldn`t.

Kind of a random rant/ vent i know.....but then again nobody will give a poo in 5 posts.

@collegebound: You brought up race, eh? And mentioned the Z&M case also.
Not willing to argue about it either though.

This story might be about race, according to the Media at least, depending on what skin colour the cop has.

Personally it shouldn`t matter, but many more think it does. (not saying IABers, just in general).

5Cats: who tried to make this about race? the fact is that the man was on his cell phone and the cop opened fire, injured the man, and killed the woman.

im not going to argue with you about Z...i`ve seen enough of your posts about that subject to know better than to try to argue with you about it...

Still very little real information available. One reason these things get blown up in the media is that oftentimes the police aren`t allowed to give their side of a story while the investigation is on-going.

Very difficult to determine what was going on.

Noooo... @Draculya: I`m saying that when the MSM allows race-baiters like Sharpton and the NBP to tell lies on air, and refuses to offer the truth? That is bad. Very bad.

@collegebound: Z hasn`t been convicted, it`s not "murder" unless he is. You can whine all you like about it but the stats remain unchanged.

So, we still wait to see what race the cop is. Isn`t THAT sad?

(in before the crys of `racist`: YES obviously it is TERRIBLE that person lost their life over a "cell phone gun" I don`t care what colour of skin they have, it`s tragic.)

Black or white, I think we can all band together and say drat the cops. If you wanted to help people you`d have become a fireman.

"these stats are for murders. I`m fairly sure the conviction rate between black & white murderers is pretty close."

tell that to Trayvon`s parents and to these people. not even going to mention the fact that "pretty close" is not the same as "equal"...oh wait...

Man we got a real problem with law enforcement in this country. When entering the force police may have good intentions, but the reality is they become power hungry pricks who think they have the right to be judge jury and executioner. Now we have a move towards militirazation of our police departments. Pepperspraying and tazing cooperative people is common. Congress just approved domestic drone surveillance. Things are about to get real f`d up and the outrage is almost nonexistent. Corporations profit from prisons and wouldn`t you know, we have more people in jail than Stalin had in gulags. Where`s the outrage? Where`s the national discussion?

"when blacks are doing the shooting they go to jail, when whites do it their actions are "justified""

@shaustin: these stats are for murders. I`m fairly sure the conviction rate between black & white murderers is pretty close.
Now, it could be that more whites get the charges "downgraded" idk. That`s a different kettle of fish.

2009: 1,025 men killed by women (460 were killed by Black women)
2,600 women killed by men (961 were killed by Black men)

This site is Amazing!

Indeed, McGovern, but hey, if you do recall, we did make national headlines a couple months ago for our single 24 hour period when no murders were [i]reported[/i]! First 24 hours without a murder in over a year, us Chicagoans are so proud.

1,177 vs 464 in 2009.
1,324 vs 459 in 2008.

Whites killed by blacks VS blacks killed by whites.
Not including Aborigionals, Latinos or "other".

USA: 72% white, 15% Latino/Native 13% Black

Total murders: 13,041 murders of all kinds in 2009
13,780 in 2008.

There you go! Blacks are apx 12 times more likely to murder whites, based on population %.

More whites are killed by blacks than blacks by whites, despite whites outnumbering them by 5:1.

SOURCE I`ve put this up at other threads, it`s the facts.

"again, a black person is shot and the shooter is not arrested though it is clear it was an unjustified shooting."

clear to your biased thought process maybe, but that`s about it. racism isn`t dead ANYWHERE on this planet and its people like YOU who perpetuate the problem "white people this and white people that" you might want to consider that every race has its share of dbags, for instance, you. (i dont know what race you are and dont care, it wont change the fact that you suck so much)

umm yea racsim is dead in America...sure.

again, a black person is shot and the shooter is not arrested though it is clear it was an unjustified shooting.

white people, keep acting like you are the oppressed minority, keep acting like everything is against you and keep denying reality.

This is because cops today are taught to treat everyone they see as a threat with intent to kill.

lol no, Illinois is still the only state in the country where you CAN`T get a concealed carry permit.

Hi @Naz14! It`s the "Chicago Way"...

[quote]In before some right-winger complains about how black on white crimes never get reported.[/quote]
@FoolsPrussia: Wait, what? Two blacks are shot and THAT is your take on it? Weird.

In some places the police are REQUIRED to carry a firearm while off duty. idk for sure, but I`m betting Chicago is one of those places.

Any citizen with a permit to carry can do so when he chooses, why would an off duty cop be any different. You`re still a cop even when you`re off duty. Would you like it if you were being mugged and an off duty cop decided not to intervene on your behalf simply because he was off duty? Of course not.

Since I don`t know a lot about specific carry laws in the US this might be true, but since when is a normal citizen (i.e. an off-duty cop) SUPPOSED to carry a gun?

Again all we have is a video and a few facts. But the situation does seem troubling on its face. Guess we`ll have to wait and see.

So, I`m assuming this was a state where anyone can carry a gun, although I doubt an off-duty officer is allowed to carry his issued gun when he`s off-duty, but I could be wrong. Why was he investigating anything when he was off-duty?

I hate officers who act like they`re on duty when they aren`t.

2:48 "Justice for Trayvon" headline held up. Can we stay focused, people!

I`m gonna say the same thing here I did for the Martin shooting... we have no info. All we know is someone shot and someone died. We don`t know what lead up to him shooting at them.

I`m not pro-cop by anymeans, but I am anti-supidity. Get your facts before making up your mind.
