    I don’t know what to believe anymore chicago police are big liars. Maybe he had a knife maybe he didn’t who knows.Chicago Police have been caught scandals lately abusing their powers. The independent police review is a joke you don’t pay 112 million in abuse settlements in 2013 being honest cops average cop is a wanna be gangster.Itsfunny a call came in someone stabbed but only the man shot went to the hospital.

    So…did he get up and mysteriously walk out of the hospital when the doctors turned their backs? I bet he's back in Haddonfield right now.
