Lets put it this way. The training syllabus now includes an expanded section on "How to act when encountering police!" The Chief's video will be shown as the lead-in.

What is it with that stupid little moustache?

If it wasn't for the uniform, he'd look like some fat guy in a Burger King at one in the morning.

Seriously, though. If a Chicago cop does shoot a CCW'er (regardless of the circumstances) this will be the first thing brought up by the plaintiff's lawyer in a lawsuit.

The "cops" with "that stupid little moustache," do you find a common denominator among those sporting them?

Probably not - under Kentucky law, for example (it's the same in many places) you lose the right to self defense if:
Quote:
Notwithstanding the provisions of KRS 503.050, the use of physical force by a defendant upon another person is not justifiable when:
(1) The defendant is resisting an arrest by a peace officer, recognized to be acting under color of official authority and using no more force than reasonably necessary to effect the arrest, although the arrest is unlawful; or
The police can use a threat of force to make an arrest, so the only way you'd have a defense is if you couldn't tell he was the police.

However, if someone not identified as a police officer points a gun at you, both you and the police have the same right to shoot him, whether he is a CCWer, a bank robber, or an undercover cop.

California is wrong about that, like everything else. When 49 other states do the opposite, odds are your state is wrong - not always, but likely. Lane splitting is a good example of that - it endangers everybody on the road..

You just said the words dispatch and good description in the same sentence....


They'd probably give me the call as a shoplifter.

I'm going home every night. Plain and simple.

It means in a perfect world things will go like that. We live and strive in an imperfect world. I've been dispatched to a shots fired call at a restaurant and the only thing I was told was "units, start heading to such and such, shots fired, gettin further. I was on scene 80 seconds later. My partner was there in less than 20. Had no idea what we were walking into. No doubt if somebody had been standing atop someone else with a gun in their hand, they'd have been proned out for a few minutes until we figure it out.

And if it is a good guy you will get an indication that they will cooperate and want to help and have acted in self defense--as soon as they know you are on scene. You will see someone glad you are there.

One would hope so.

Unless you open carry and record yourself for YouTube. Officers can be running into a dispatched call of shots fired - and you could have someone who won't show their hands or won't show their "papers."

You would hope the good guys would be cooperative - especially when it comes to guns.

Forget about whether dispatch passes complete information to responding officers or not. Let's assume they give every detail they've received.

But you're still assuming the dispatcher will know who the good guy is. I'm willing to bet the most common call will be coming from a bystander, someone that probably didn't even see what happened, but the call will be something like:

"We need the police out here! There are two guys, they were fighting, but now one is laying in the street, the other one is pointing a gun at him. The guy with a gun is wearing....."

Based on that, what do you think the first officer on site should assume? "Well, the guy with gun is PROBABLY a good guy, CCW holder, so I'll just stroll up and ask how his night's going......"

Most, if not all, good guys will be cooperative. It's the other ones Coppers need be wary of and the amount of time they have to determine same when rolling up on the scene.

Much ado about nothing other than one appointed Chief Twit's verbal diarrhea (with some truth contained therein tho). 99% of CCWs will never need to use their weapon, will avoid going to places they do not belong at times they do not belong there. (I made that number up as I haven't a clue how many CCWs get into firefights daily in the US )

Will the wild kids and bad guys get the same message and play by the same rules? Not to date. Never. Unless you, as a CCW shoot one of their buddies. Then I'd expect them to cooperate with the officers and tell the coppers how you ambushed them while they were on a "skittle-n-tea'" run or something else creative)

I'd fear an Al Sharpton/JJackson response to a legit CCW shooting in Chicago before I'd really worry about a single CPD Copper shooting me... myself. But that's just me and I'll avoid Chicago unless I can't (and I think I can make to my dying day without ever going back).

What is your experience in calling the police in an emergency and having them respond? Have they always arrived with all the knowledge you thought they should have had?

You might be surprised at how weird even the "good guy" can act at a scene. That is one of the reasons for extreme caution.

It never works as well as the perfect scripts on TV.



(none of this is to imply that the official, who is the topic of the thread, isn't a jerk)

If person has just been under the stress of a deadly force incident he may or may not be thinking clearly.

That's one of the reasons good guys get shot and it's another good reason for cops to respond with extreme caution.

There is more than ample opportunity for anyone involved to make a mistake or compound someone else's mistake.
