    Police have a lot of fear no order to drop the weapon just a shot in the back. Bring new teachers to the academy please.

      Do you really need to be told to drop the weapon when you are running away from the police..,. Because you shot a person in an auto accident? Do you even know who the good guys and bad guys are anymore?

    Draw a gun and run, then confront an armed officer and expect what? Looks like suicide by cop. Bill the family for the cost of the bullet and give a bonus to the cop.

    Just another day at the office, huh Rahm & Chief McCarthy?
    But preach your propoganda in the news on how murders are down.
    What a sick joke.
    All I can say is the person who pulled the gun after the accident, then ran from someone who indentified themselves as a police officer.


    Too bad the tax payers have to pay for that persons medical expenses and incarceration.
