Chicago Cop Severely Beaten Did Not Defend Her Life Out Of Fear Of Media Backlash

Chicago – A female Chicago Police Department Officer was severely beaten by a man high on PCP after she was afraid to defend her life out of fear of media backlash.

Chicago police officers were called to a vehicle collision on Wednesday morning on the city’s West Side. When officers arrived, they encountered a violent crazed man who was high on PCP.

A female officer was beaten so severely she was convinced that she was going to die. Rather than use lethal force to save her life, the officer decided to lay down her life to avoid media backlash.

Chicago PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson told the gathered media, “She thought she was going to die. She knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to, because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news.”

The officer was hospitalized after the assault. Two other officers were also hospitalized after being assaulted by the drug-addled scumbag.

The officer’s concerns about media scrutiny are legitimate. The man was presumably “unarmed” which would have been considered by many to be proof that lethal force was unjustified. The media would have fixated on the incident and sensationalized it in an attempt to get ratings. As in prior lethal force incidents, the resulting backlash could have destroyed the officer’s career, she would have been publicly vilified, her family would likely have been flooded with threats, and Chicago PD’s reputation would again be dragged through the mud.

Officers, your families need you. Don’t allow the media and Black Lives Matter groups to intimidate you and leave your children and spouses to try to go on without you.

We never want to see another officer die because they were unable to defend their lives with a necessary amount of force. Black Lives Matter political groups are constantly lobbying to take away the right of officers to defend their lives. To stand against this multi-million dollar political lobbying machine, we only have the men and women of law enforcement and those of you who declare that Blue Lives Matter.

    Breaks my heart to hear this what a brave woman to lay her life down and for what the media has hyped this blm bs for ratings and at what cost who is winning the battle at this point the criminal element is stronger unfortunately the officers were in a seedy neighborhood and were trying to protect the community from this individual. I hope and pray for a speedy recovery and hope we all can learn from this.

    • Kristen Loomis

      The media wins. They spin the story, turn it on its head, and then feed it to the masses who eat it up as gospel. Their ratings soar, they profit from advertisers buying spots.

      We don’t win. Whether you’re pro blue or pro black, we don’t win.

      Every American is entitled to a free high school education. Your illiterate post shows that you did not take advantage of your opportunity.

      • John J Rouse

        David is educated guys! Educated and living in his mommies basement.

        • Michael Gross

          So John, how many “mommies” does does David have? You might want to rethink that comment regarding education, it doesn’t look good on you.

          • John J Rouse

            I don’t know, Mikey. It’s not uncommon for libturds to have two mommies or daddy’s, right, Mikey?

          • Michael Gross

            Johnny, let me help you. “Mommies” is plural:. Therefore, your statement infers he lives in the basement of his multiple mothers. I don’t know anyone who has more than one true (biological) mother. Maybe you meant he has multiple mothers due to a lesbian relationship. However, I don’t I believe that is what you really wanted to say. But hey if you insist, that is your prerogative.

            “Daddy’s” is a possessive noun: showing relationship. It is interesting that you mixed the two (Mommies and Daddy’s) but hey, maybe you are use to living in those types of arrangements. Most people are not so worldly. I’m done: you obviously don’t grasp the English language well.

          • John J Rouse

            No shit Sherlock. I’m sure you have two daddies. And you were mollested as a kid, that’s why you turned out to be a fag.

          I don’t really believe that someone so uneducated, illiterate and someone who has no interest in accuracy could possibly have a valid and accurate point.

  • Still22

    You need a net to throw over PCP fiends. Put hooks in it. Now PCP addicts know if they have a run in with police, they’ll tear themselves apart. I suspect PCP use will go way down. This officer is paying a steep price to avoid killing another person, god bless her and keep her for that. May corrupt media outlets rushing to vilify cops and start riots now again consider their damage. They made this cop a punching bag. How much is that worth to your ratings you SOB’s?

    • Skep41

      Losertarians think PCP should be legal. It’s a personal choice.

      • Rachel

        They should go to an ER sometime and just watch one of those patients..might change their minds.

    • David Smith

      I am glad that I don’t have any PCP friends.

  • pjanak

    I completely understand why she did what she did. Even if it was foolish. I am in armed security. I hav a coworker who’s family has police officers. He claims that if she had shot him she would have been wrong. I explained the basic right to use deadly force that we all as people have. He says that right extends to the man on pcp who is fearful of being arrested. I now. I’m wasting my time. But how do I bust through that wall of what see as stupidity.

    • Michelle

      I highly doubt anyone high on PCP is worried about getting arrested anyway

    • David Smith

      An opinion from a friend of a friend is meaningless. You have no idea what you are talking about so please get your facts straight before you pass along more garbage.

      • Not A Sheeple

        Perhaps it is you who doesn’t know what pjanak is talking about because you lack reading comprehension skills.

        • David Smith

          I comprehend that he is quoting a friend of a friend. There is no telling how accurate that information is.
          He has some comment about busting through a wall of stupidity, but he does that after passing along another stupid myth.
          There is no right to be “fearful of being arrested”.
          Been there, done that. Unfortunately, the perp is dead but the cops went home safely.

          • timharding2

            Speaking from the perspective of an 18 year veteran police officer, the constitution defends a police officer’s use of deadly force to protect themselves or others from death or serious bodily injury. The state of mind of the other person is not part of the equation. The female cop was within her right to use deadly force. I’m sorry she was hurt, but her decision making skills show she should no longer be a cop.

          • David Smith

            Those are my thoughts but you put into words much better than I could.

          • Dolt Hunter

            you mean her fear of the back lash that would have been far worse then her suffering a beating even death should be dealt with by making Black Lives Matter an official terrorist organization and start arresting people with in its ranks and who openly support it. even us law abiding armed citizens now have to think about the back lash of terrorist attacks by BLM to defend ourselves when black thugs attack us. if you spend the rest of your life dragged through the media and in constant fear of retaliation being a martyr for logic and reason sounds more pleasant to me. although i think about the well being of others before my own well being.

          • timharding2

            Dolt Hunter— I meant what I wrote. Not your twisted interpretation. Not some racist rant by an anonymous poster who acts tough behind a keyboard but doesn’t even have the guts to use their real name when expressing their opinion. People like you are part of the problem. Sniping behind the bushes, antagonizing others, but without the courage to say it to someone’s face. I will always express my opinion, truthfully, despite the consequences. To live life like a coward….afraid of “black thugs”? I am on the streets FACING the problems. You are the one cowering behind the scenes yelling, “Go get them.” How pathetic….

          • Dolt Hunter

            either you lie about the police veteran comment or you had a safe little town and never had to deal with stuff like this. or you flew a desk.

            there was no racist rant you are also some anonymous poster hypocritical troll and what i said is fact had she shot him which would have been the right thing to do and fully justified the black lives matter group would think other wise and far more people would have been hurt that is not an irrational fear it is fact look at the news events of what happens after every police shooting of a black criminal. just because these officers chose to take the nearly lethal beating rather then give BLM thugs a reason to riot, loot, and attack cops does not make her a bad person this wont be the last time something like this happens because it is a rational fear because of what happens every single time a black criminal is shot. yet nearly twice and many white criminals are shot in the same situations not one riot or even a single protest from those.

            you can express your opinion all you want wont change the facts or what is happening in reality.

            also you have no idea what i am doing as a pro 2nd amendment advocate, pro police advocate, future gunsmith, and relative to police who risk their lives daily risking my own life and have actually had to defend myself from 6 attacks of BLM thugs already just because i spoke in support of police. thankfully i havnt had to pull a gun yet i have been lucky that all the cases i was able to use my self defense training in krav maga to defend myself. so since i havnt been force to end a life yet and hope i never am in that situation i havnt had to face the backlash.

            i would like to see you go into these areas and go get them as you put it and see how well that goes for you. there is a difference between understanding someone’s actions and agreeing with them i never said i agreed with her just understanding her fear. so either you are one of the black thugs in question and dont actually face them you join em or you are just trolling. speaking out against them is not cowardly even when it done anonymously online or in public.

            having done personally body guard protection i have done pretty close to the same work for over 3 years and have had to use a taser on some of the guys. I eventually had to leave Chicago because they would actually hunt me and stalk me for opportunities to attack me. so ya dont assume im a coward with out knowing me just because some one can type on a computer does not mean they are a nerd hiding.

            I have done and seen things that would turn the hair white on many inner city cops so go ahead troll all you want I still support these officers even if they made the wrong choice to not use lethal force for a very compelling reason that should not exist. if you want to do something start petitions for our legislators to put a stop to the black lives matter terrorist group and start supporting our law enforcement officers and protecting them when they are forced to use lethal force. if the criminal is any other race other then black there is no threat of back lash at all wont even make most media sources but every single black criminal gets blown up like some serious racist vendetta against blacks. how about joining the rest of us who are trying to pressure the government and media to stop supporting the lies of BLM.

          • timharding2

            18 year veteran, (3 years uniform patrol, 5 years undercover; 10 years violent crime/gang squad) Scranton police department (150 sworn officers), population 76,000. I have used my real name, you can verify it. Please don’t try to impress everyone with comments like “I’ve seen things that would turn the hair white on many inner city cops,” and then follow that up with “Thankfully I haven’t had to pull my gun yet.” Your post is racist, and you are hiding behind an anonymous name. Krav maga is a decent martial art; many of the ladies I know practice it.

          • Dolt Hunter

            ok holding a friends guts from falling out while waiting for paramedics because some drug dealing thug cut him, have been stabbed myself and shot. Seen the after math of these thugs such as dead kids with multiple gun shots first hand. providing protection to journalists i have seen not only the violence of black criminals but white, Asian and Hispanic the only thing i found worse then the inner city black violence was muslims who practice illegal shariah law in their private communities watching a woman stoned to death for wanting to leave the islam faith and unable to stop it. even if you are being truthful you are still a hateful bigot and racist while i had said not one racist or hateful thing at all i spoke the facts of what is actually happening check the news that isnt biased by those who support the BLM terrorists. Also some of us have jobs that require we do not exist on the internet if they find us with our real name we are fired. where do you get off saying that i am thankful for now having to draw my gun (and or fire it) is racist? that is the most ignorant comment ever if you really are what you claim you should know better.

            try dealing with criminals who know that your actions against them will make them a martyr.

            it isnt all simple like it was in your day if you are who you claim to be where all you have to worry about is the occasional punk trying to sue you for excessive force. these days you shoot a black man and the entire city erupts into chaotic riots, looting, violent beatings and death threats to the shooter and their family.

        Read it again. First I said I have a coworker who said this and that. Then I said as a human being we all have the basic right to fight to the death to defend our own lives. Then my stupid coworker insisted that right extends to the criminal fearful of being arrested. Which is ridiculous. I didn’t perpetuate any myth and my facts were straight. Now if you want to be jaded and I sit there’s no helping the helpless that’s fine. But if so irs time to hang your hat.

    I was a police officer in the military. One night we responded to the Airman’s Club for a disturbance to find a guy high out of his mind on PCP. He threw me over the front end of the police car. It took 6 officers to wrestle this guy down. Luckily no one was killed in the scuffle and I came away from that with bruised thighs.

    The guy has a lengthy criminal record and if she had shot him black lies matter and liberal media would had made him out to be a misunderstood choir boy who didn’t deserve to be killed.

  • OBAMA IS YOUR MASTER

    If this story is true it just shows you how many unqualified officers we have on the force.

    If guy is not trying to harm you and is unarmed dont kill him. If a guy is trying to harm you Kill him.

    Why she chose to be beaten is ridiculous…

    Her job was made harder because of the few radical cops that kill unarmed men and create mistrust…

    You can’t handle your job without using deadly force?

    • Sissy Beerman

      Are you kidding? He was high on PCP, no taser in the city would have stopped him. Sad that she allowed fear of a rabid group’s outrage to decide her fate. I’d have popped one between his eyes.

    • David Smith

      It has no impact on the qualification of other officers.
      If your comments are true, it just shows how many uneducated idiots received an undeserved diploma from your school.

  • John

    What were her injuries? I noticed the language of the article that she “was beaten so severely she was convinced that she was going to die.” How severe is that? It said they were hospitalized. For serious injuries or minor scrapes and bruising? The article sounds no better than the media it condemns. I support law enforcement not worship them. You may have a case to support what I believe is a valid complaint about the media, but this article doesn’t do it any justice.

    “Better to be judged by 12, than carried by 6” used to be the saying. Now, with social “media “, and the rush to judgement, one is judged by thousands, if not millions. While I don’t agree with her decision, I wasn’t in her shoes. Prayers for her recovery..

    • Po-Po

      Amen. We weren’t there, and as much as I feel for her, I think she should’ve put him down. No one is against corrupt cops more than good cops are, but when it’s time to lay brass down and you’re righteous, you shouldn’t hesitate because of the media. Unfortunately she didn’t, and she’s paying the price in the ER. I hope she is alright and uses this as a learning experience and understands how bad it could’ve been without backup. Thank God she is alright though, I hope it doesn’t deter her from fighting the good fight. We need all we can get nowadays.

      What does that sentence fragment mean?

  • Bill Herman

    IF this is true?? Very Hard to believe. Then she should never have been a cop to begin with.
    What if this doped up schmuck had been beating on some other woman would she have let it go on
    while she worried about her family and the media?
    I wouldn’t want her around me if a real cop was needed to save a life.
    Where’s Hollywood they can use this story for one of their Fantasy movies.
    Again if true, I do hope she recovers OK but she needs to resign from the force, but she will now
    probably get Disability Retirement.

    • Carol B.

      Really? What about the two other cops that were hospitalized, they didn’t shoot either. So going by your theory, they shouldn’t be cops either. I think you saw FEMALE cop and didn’t see anything else. She is doing a job most MEN won’t do, so she be praised not put down by idiots like you.

      • Bill Herman

        You need a class in Critical Reading and Writing. Your not an idiot, you’re just stupid.
        The article was focused on her, it was all about her. Therefore I wrote a reply focusing on her. That’s what Critical reading and writing is about, FOCUS. Maybe you need to learn before name calling and Implying I replied negatively about a woman cop only because she is a woman. No theory only the major fact.
        Again you shouldn’t make stupid assumptions, but that’s another Class.
        Also I’ve been around Police a lot in my life and Good Cops do Good Things and Bad Ones fk up like she did. Again hope she’ll be OK but never a cop again.
        You don’t like what I say, I couldn’t care less as you have NO concept of what cops do every day except the assumptions you probably make from reading non critically.
        Now, say the word, F O C U S and try it, now doesn’t that feel good to have learned a new word today.

        more like she should be praised as a hero and Black Lives Matter should be labeled terrorists for causing this fear of retaliation.

  • fishydude

    New Rules ofd engagement coming from Lynch DOJ:
    1. All police officers must keep their weapons unloaded and holstered until a police officer is shot and hit by live fire from the suspect. This must be done to be absolutely sure the supect has a real gun and is willing to use it.
    2. Police officers facing an unarmed suspect must wait until the suspect beats one officers to the point of life threatening injury before another officer may intervene. Stand back and record to be sure absolute evidence of intent to harm is acquired. And then block all video from being released while the media spins up riots again.
    3. If suspect resists, turn and run away.

    • David Smith

      Idiots like you are a major part of the problem. STFU

  • There’s yet another risk officers face today. With all the negative press and rising acrimony over every officer-involved shooting, ESPECIALLY someplace like Chicago, where it’s a real tinderbox, even a “good shooting” might be twisted, to make the officer a scapegoat, in hopes of calming the public.

    This officer would be looking for a fourth mag! If your no good to yourself or pardners, what good are you to the people you’ve sworn to protect and serve?

    • David Smith

      Whose no good to yourself?

  • Airangel

    Screw the mental media! This is piss-poor leadership when criminals matter more than the safety of law abiding citizens and our law and order enforcers! A fish rots from the head down. Clintons and Obamas are rotten to the core!

    Honestly, it was stupid on her part to do nothing to protect herself, she should have used a method other than her gun to stop this man. I understand she didn’t want to cause problems for her family and fellow officers, and I support police completely, but they are supposed to serve and protect all lives, including their own. What is being brought to light is officers discharging their firearms when it is NOT NECESSARY. In this case, it sounds like it was necessary for her to protect herself, but I don’t understand why police officers seem to have forgotten about their tazers and pepper spray. It is wrong for one person to take another person’s life, weather they are black, white, police officers or civilians. What everybody is upset about is people dying for no reason. Police officers have tools other than their guns that they can use to diffuse a situation. Excessive force is the problem. People don’t want to see officers nearly beaten to death, but they also don’t want to see people shot and killed because an officer didn’t properly assess the situation and instead jumped to the conclusion that they needed to take a life. Police officers have a very dangerous job, but they need to be trained to bring prople into custody ALIVE and with as few injuries as possible. Police officers should not be trained to kill, but instead, to safely detain someone who may cause harm to themselves or others. People need to stop hating police and police need to stop being afraid of the media. If they were properly trained, fewer situations like this would happen.

      Should a, would a could a.. She was too close to use a taser. You need distance so the prongs can be far enough apart to shock the whole body. Too close and it’s just a small area. You… no. We have no idea if she could have been capable of grabbing another tool” while she’s getting her head pounded in. There have been few instances where a fire arm was used unnecessarily. Very few. Plus. As a cop. You can go your entire career without ever having to draw down on a criminal. So when it happens you will be terrified. Terrified that you could get shot. Terrified that you may have to shoot someone.

      • Laoquinnas

        Tasers aren’t going to be effective against someone on PCP anyway. Hell, its hardly effective against people on some lesser drugs, much less that monster.

        • David Smith

          Proof idiot? Drugs do not reduce the effectiveness of a taser. That said, a taser is not a weapon to use against deadly force.

      • Liz

        Well, I guess you didn’t read all of what I wrote. In my first sentence, I said “it was stupid on her part to do nothing to protect herself”, and then I started talking about DIFFERENT situations where officers are too quick to draw their guns and kill when it is not necessary. Maybe you should go back and read what I originally wrote before going on a rant…

    • David Smith

      Taser is not a weapon for use against deadly force. You show your ignorance even worse when you mention pepper spray. Put on a vest and a firearm and answer a few thousand calls before you reply with such stupid suggestions.

      • Liz

        If you’ve ever been tased or pepper sprayed, you may withdrawal that statement. It’s kind of difficult to do much with electricity surging through your body or your eyes burning so badly that it’s difficult to open them. But you’re right David, cops should just keep shooting and killing everyone. Good job America.

        • David Smith

          I will not withdraw my statement until I have evidence to refute it. Have you ever been shot? Have you ever been severely beaten by a man high on PCP?
          When a subject assaults an officer with that level of force, the subject loses his right to live.
          The officer’s right to go home alive at the end of the shift overrides the suspect’s right to live.
          There are a number of physiological and physiological reasons why tasers and chemical spray are sometimes ineffective. It is the responsibility of the officer to neutralize the situation. Unfortunately, a gun is the weapon that has the best chance of being effective.

          • Liz

            Well first off, you know nothing about me, so making ignorant statements saying I have never been shot or beaten show how little you consider that sometimes other people may know what they’re talking about. Also, I didn’t say that guns are never necessary, I said how ridiculous it is that cops nowadays assume that their only option of protecting themselves is taking another person’s life. Sometimes, that is the only option, but in the past, officers have been very successful of neutralizing a suspect with means other than discharging a firearm. It’s also pretty difficult to continue even if you are not fatally shot. I’m just glad that you are not in a position to decide the fate of anyone, but if you are, I fear the people who have to stand before you, but I’m pretty much done arguing my point with ignorant, pompous people like you, good day.

          • David Smith

            You have paraphrased my comments and twisted them to fit your agenda.
            You have made blanket criticisms about cops that are completely wrong.
            Since your mind is made up and you ignore anything that doesn’t agree with your opinion, I AM OUT OF HERE.

  • David F. Podesta

    Will Obama resign? Are you serious?

  • lazythump

    She was worried about being crucified in the press if she defended herself and now she is being vilified as being ‘stupid’ because she didn’t. Can’t win for losing can ya?

    • Po-Po

      EXACTLY our thoughts.

  • Jack Reilly

    It’s sad……she didn’t want to have any repercussions for shooting the guy……I would have shot him in one of his eyes, if I could have…..PERIOD.

    • David Smith

      I… agree… with… you… But… your,,, keyboard,,, seems… to have… a defect.

  • Jack Reilly

    Hey People, remember this….Obama has allowed some of these guys out of prison ….HUNDREDS to be exact….what a POS.

  • JBspeaks

    I don’t think the name of any officer involved in a shooting should be released to the public until after the grand jury hearing and recommendations. That was policy long ago when I wore a badge and protected the community. The agency would only announce that a male or female officer had been involved in a shooting.

  • rob

    I got your 6, but I’ll shoot the bastard!

  • Everett Robyne Baldwin

    If you are a police officer and you can’t pull that service weapon and use it, it’s time to get off the street. I hope the officer recovers from her injuries.

    • David Smith

      Agreed

  • StrongBlackMan

    Fuck outta here you supposed to defend yourself when being attacked. Just another case of poor training. You defend yourself when being attacked you stand down when there is no threat.

    • Po-Po

      Unless you’re crucified when you do defend yourself, like Darren Wilson, and are forced to live the rest of your life in exile and never tell anyone your name and have a price on your head by the black panther party. Other than that, totally.

    • David Smith

      How is “you supposed to defend” going to “fuc* outta here”?

  • FourOne6Side

    LUCKY SHE DIDNT GET SMOKED

  • Well that was dumb as hell. She literally took an ass whooping because she was afraid of the media and not the person beating the shit out of her? Something doesn’t add up here.
