This is a discussion on Chicago Cop Allegedly Seen Beating Woman On Video within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; As a child I had to watch my father beat my mother, I swore I would never let a man do that to a woman ...
As a child I had to watch my father beat my mother, I swore I would never let a man do that to a woman in my presence and I never have. I would have found a way to stop him. I would have likely been charged with some for of Homicide. This type of action by a man really makes me lose it.
First of all I don't understand some of the comments about this guy being a cop. Cop or not, the people in the bar apparently saw the guy get drunk, get pissed after being cut off from drinks, and then start to beat on the employee. Cop or not, in uniform or not, he was in the wrong, BAC will definately prove that, the beating on the woman will prove that. Just cause someone has a badge doesn't make them above the law, regardless what they think, or what others think
Man or woman at the end of this beating needs to be assisted. Cue stick, whisky bottle, fist, foot, whatever needs to be used while 911 is being called. From the video deadly force was not warranted from what I could see. Serious intervention is definately warranted, and should have been given.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

This guy shouldbe fired and then charged with assault and battery. Seems like the cop couldn't hold his booze. Being a LEO he should be held toa higher standard.
took them a month to arrest him....
i mean, some SERIOUS corruption going on in chicago....
i know, hello mr obvious, but still....
When I first moved here, for the second time, I noticed in the local police blotter lots of references toward assault with "shod foot".
During the LTC class I asked about this and sure enough it's a serious crime here which when one thinks about it kind of makes sense. A size 12 boot or a ladies size 9 heel could do some very serious if not fatal damage with little in the way of effort.
I'd never heard of as much as a criminal penalty untill moving here recently.
There are many cases where a person dies from a blow to the head, In my opinion the creep was using deadly force therefore it merits deadly force.
What? Cops break the law?
This is a no win situation. I don't think I could watch a man beat up a woman, especially when he is twice her size.

Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!
Heard yesterday that the dude has a history: beat a suspect to death, DUI, etc.

I dont care if he has a badge or not he's no better then anyone else and if in uniform or not, he had no right to beat this poor lady and the witnesses should be charged as accesoris for not doing anything to help her they watched as he progressed through his anger to the point he was mad that he was cut off. and i'm sorry i would have help the lady even if he was in uniform. this is the reason there needs to be more supervision of LEO's and not by other LEO's. this guy has a history of violence lock him up in general population and treat him like any normal joe that would be charged with this crime...

remember the only thing common about common sense is that its not that common

The only difference between this guy being regular guy and an LEO is the fun he's going to have in prison. He'll have plenty of fighting to do. He'll probably get a chance or two to wear the lady's shoes too.

Badge or not, assault and battery is never a good thing. This squishy example of a two-legger is going to find lots of cool, new friends in the slammer. May he come to appreciate the value of citizenship and come to despise his abuse of it. And may official law enforcement organizations never be conned by this person again.
