    Link: Man Is Shot 28 Times, Survives, Now Facing Jail - Being sentenced Thursday even though essentially no investigation was performed. What do you think, I-A-B? Is this just?

    I think a more identifying question would be whether or not the white cops had their shirts tucked in.

    They failed to prove his gun had been fired and to provide the vest that proves he (the cop) was shot? If that`s true this seems pretty clear. Plus 28 times on one man? That`s hard to swallow as justified even if he did shoot first, it just seems like overkill (I guess not). Regardless of the outcome this guy has gotta be the most hardcore dude alive to survive that.

    Well, I`ve only heard the one side, but it sounds ligical and plausible to me that the poor guy is suffering from Chicago Cop Syndrome. Also from a stupid DA office that pursued a case the screams "Something aint right here".

    As for "essentially no investigation"... where is evidence of that? I didn`t see that part. Stop exagerating.

    even though i have family in law enforcement, I`m seeing more and more police brutality cases online and on tv.
    i think its time to stand our ground, police are acting like the notorious "blue gang" they used to be. this used to be a respected career, now it`s a feared job run by those who seek vengance from the treatment they mightve gotten in high school. it`s time to stand up now america, land of the FREE home of the BRAVE

    Fail overload.

    How stupid do you have to be as a cop to arrest someone for not having their lights on in a one way street?

    How stupid do you have to be as a cop to mistakenly soot anyone 28 times?

    How stupid do you have to be as a cop to think you need to shoot someone 28 times, that you didn`t intend to kill?

    How stupid do you have to be as a cop to need to shoot someone 28 times, in order to kill them, and then fail at it?

    Finally, how awesome is our medical technology that someone can be shot 28 times and live?

    I`ll be starting work soon, and I was thinking about what kind of premium I`d demand for working in the states, rather than here. I thought 50% was reasonable... but now it seems like not enough. I`m not even a cop...

    He was pulled over for going the WRONG WAY down a 1 way street and allegedly opened fire on one of the police officers whenever they were arresting them. Once again, bullpoo news story that only shows half of one side of an issue.

    Wait, so he was driving on one way street with lights turned off, got pulled over, his gun was taken away from him than he got shot 28 times.... and now they`re charging him for attempted murder? Either we`re not hearing some very important details about this story or else, what the f*cking f*ck....

    Given what little we know of this, it seems unlikely that a middle aged, stable man with no criminal history would open fire on the police.

    It does seem likely that CHICAGO cops have screwed him over royally. Yes, he was going the wrong way down a 1-way.... who hasnt? If he was drunk I heard no mention of it so `honest mistake`. But he is black and they are in Chicago so . . . you fill in the blanks.

    Chicago is the liberal mecca after all. Ayres, Emanuel, Axelrod, Blagoyavich, Obama, etc. etc.

    Cops probably did the wrong thing, and got it covered up......

    Kinda like what happened here.

    An article that might interest some, mostly dealing with Trayvon Martin, seems to apply to this as well.

    I only know them by reputation of course, but between cops vs blacks,
    I`d have to say Chicago Police are more gangsta.

    I decided to Google the name, "28 Shots." On impulse, I thought I`d heard it before. (I was right: there`s a zombie mini-movie that I`d seen before called "28 Shots Later.")

    Anyway... Apparently, the Google calculator knows the volume of a shot (as in, the drink).

    And 28 of them is 1.24 liters.

    I continue to believe that Google is the most awesome company to have ever existed.

    allegedly opened fire on one of the police officers whenever they were arresting them.
    I would just like to point out this "allegedly." Make it REAL clear.

    This is "allegedly" according to a group of four officers who were going to ARREST HIM for going the wrong way down a one-way street (say what?), then proceeded to shoot him 28 times.

    4 officers. 28 shots.

    That`s 7 shots each, assuming one wasn`t more trigger-happy than the rest.

    And these 28 shots were put into an off-duty POLICE OFFICER who was found NOT GUILTY of DISCHARGING HIS WEAPON.

    How, pray-tell, does one "open fire on one of the police officers" without discharging his weapon? (and I know there`s a sexual joke in there, but let`s try to keep this serious please)

    Above all...

    It`s Chicago.

    Is anyone surprised?

    Well then, Ollie, I dare you go gain some initiative and find the OTHER half of this story, and prove to us that 28 shots fired vs. a gun that wasn`t even shot once is perfectly okay.

    But I`ll put $20 your lazy ass is just gonna sit there and bitch incoherently, like always.

    Altaru, if you knew half as much about the law as you know about underage Japanese scat porn, you would know that the prosecution cannot go public and put out YouTube videos touting their evidence. That would taint the jury pool and cause a mistrial. I`m just saying there`s more to this story than this strictly one-sided account of it.

    I found this tidbit about the case in the comments of one of the news stories. Seems that there was more to the story.

    "Mary Mitchell is well known in Chicago for writing clearly anti-white, heavily racially slanted pieces. Howard Morgan, the former CPD officer and now former Santa Fe police officer, fired 17 rounds at the four police officers from his Glock, which when recovered, was in slide-lock. Howard happens to be black. At least two of the four responding officers suffered gunshot wounds. The four CPD officers who shot Howard happen to be white. Mitchell omitted these important facts from her "story." Ask yourself why a "reporter" would omit such important facts. Read how she wrote the story. Read some of her other stories. After that, you`ll figure out exactly what Mary Mitchell is all about"

    BostonKaiser: Personally I think we should give Chicago to Indiana, other than that yeah it`s a complete leftist liberal wasteland.

    They`ve illegally gerrymandered our representative districts, to their sole advantage, engaged in `gangster politics`, have been caught engaging in voter intimidation and outright vote fraud.

    And Illinois is the only state in the union not following the Supreme Court`s decision to allow concealed carry laws nationwide.

    Well, I want my $20.

    All you would`ve had to do, Ollie, is EXACTLY what axlton did.

    But instead you had to bring up underage Japanese scat porn. We all know where YOUR mind is now, don`t we?

    I`d STILL like to know how they can find someone NOT guilty of discharging their weapon, then turn and convict them for attempted murder for shooting at police, let alone claim he fired a whole magazine (assuming he was using a law enforcement 17 round clip) at them...

    Since when do you not have to pull the trigger (AKA discharge your weapon) to fire a gun 17 times?

    Other articles state there were 21 shots in his back and 7 in the front. That sounds perfectly reasonable of the police, right?

    >>>This video presents almost no facts. It`s impossible to make any kind of conclusion from it.<<<

    Actually, since, regardless of the underlying facts, it`s at least known that *all* of those involved were definitely police officers, I think there`s one fact that we can all agree on and conclude from this story: police officers in the USA are the most corrupt, human rights -abusing, violent thugs on the entire planet.

    Meanwhile, in other current news.

    I really don`t know how the US has the cheek to criticise countries like Syria and Iran, when your own house is so clearly and seriously out of order. You should try living somewhere so safe that even the police don`t need guns - it`s really nice, honestly; come and visit some time.

    wasn`t the guy who got shot 28 times an off duty cop? who was unarmed at the time? with no ambulance called after said shooting happened?

    sounds to me like they didn`t expect him to live.

    for the record i haven`t watched this video. i keep reading the comments and you guys keep saying it is lacking information. decided not to waste my time.
