Chicago cop badly beaten because she hesitated using gun in the wake of #BlackLivesMatter protests
Murder rates are soaring in our nation’s largest cities, as police officers behave exactly as human beings do when criticized – in this instance for being too proactive, and too anxious to use firearms. As a result, law abiding residents of urban areas are dying in larger numbers, though that is of no concern to BLM and its financial backer George Soros.
But cops are also suffering. In Chicago, via Jeremy Gorner and Hal Dardick of the Chicago Tribune:
Chicago’s top cop said Thursday one of his officers was seriously beaten at an accident scene because the national focus on police shootings has caused officers to second-guess themselves.
Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the patrol officer told him she did not use her gun to defend herself for fear of a backlash. "She didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news," he said.
The injured officer, a 17-year Chicago police veteran, got into a struggle with a man who allegedly was high on PCP after she stopped at a crash scene in the Austin community on the West Side on Wednesday morning.
The suspect smashed the officer's face into the pavement repeatedly until she was unconscious, police said.
Police work is very dangerous, and this incident proves that officers are at even greater risk now. This cannot help police-community relations at all. Ad that is exactly what the BLM movement wants.
