Chicago Cop Beaten Unconscious Because She Feared Using Her Gun

posted on October 8, 2016

A 17-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department says she took a brutal beating because she feared the backlash if she shot her attacker. 

Officers confronted a 28-year-old male after he crashed his car into a building. High on PCP, he engaged them in a struggle lasting several minutes, repeatedly smashing one officer’s face into the pavement until she was unconscious. He finally succumbed after being hit with a Taser and pepper spray, but not before sending two more officers to the hospital. 

“She thought she was gonna die, and she knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to because she didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” said Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. “Officers are second-guessing themselves. That’s what we don’t want.” 

Local Fraternal Order of Police President Dean Angelo said cops don’t want to become the next YouTube video: “You can save your life, but in 2016, you can lose your job.”
