    "He was a father trying to protect his daughter. He was never a violent person."

    Wrong on both counts.

    Looks to me like the officer tried to avoid hitting the child, got jumped and assaulted by the dad as well as at least one other person (the 18 year-old cousin) and he fired his weapon in self-defense after being hit and then kicked on the ground.

    Lots of emotion, but it doesn't look from the article like the police officer did anything criminal here.

    You can say that again. I wish Cook County as a whole could secede from IL and start their own country.

    The only thing wrong in Chicago citizens eyes is that he was a police officer.

    Trying to protect her from what? The accident was over. He hit the officer along with all the others that were hitting him. They overreacted and one idiot got shot and killed for being stupid.

    Oh well. Mr. Overreaction won't have to worry about doing that again.

    The officer sure did make a effort to avoid the little girl and gets assaulted in the process? Good grief! Where were the parents? Why was the child in the middle of the street in the first place?

    Sorry, it's not the cops fault and as far as I'm concerned, the officers actions were clearly justified.

    I wonder how this would go if it were not a cop, but instead just a motorcycle rider with a CCW?

    Not a chance it would have been a motorcycle rider with a CCW,

    this is Illinois, what is this CCW you speak of?

    He'd come out of it with a lot less trouble than the cop. It's usually a much bigger issue when a cop shoots some black thug type (Christopher Middleton) than when a civilian does.

    Note: If you think I need a picture to say, "black thug type" instead of just the description of the events, you really need a lot more experience in the world.

    Who cares if hes a cop? What a punk, takes a few shots and starts screaming, "I'm a cop, I'm a cop! You can't hit me!" But now that he announced himself as such, maybe the family should sue the PD for the negligence of their officer.

    What kind of moron can't dodge a 4 year old child on their bike on a wide open road is beyond me.

    Careful, someone might see a hint of your willingness to abandon critical thinking and freely exercise your bias.

    You're right, I'm biased against idiots on motorcycles who should be in a cage because they can't ride worth a ****.

    What do you base your statement of poor driving on?

    P. S. Everyone is a fiance after they're dead. There was about as much chance that the BG was going to marry his baby-mama as there is that I will outrun Usain Bolt this week.

    I'm hoping there is a lot of sarcasm in that post that just isn't coming though very well.

    The officer acted as he (or anyone in a similar situation) should. Frankly he should have pulled his weapon after getting hit in the face. I think he acted with as much prudence as possible.
