Chicago Cop Allegedly Seen Beating Woman On Video
Preface: I just watched this being featured on CNN news and was flat out stunned. It's pretty bad.
At the time of the incident neither the bartender nor the patrons knew that the guy was a cop. As well what is not shown in the video is that the cop was being belligerent leading up to the beating he had been "play punching" anothe guy in the bar and that he came behind the bar prior to which she had pushed him away and then decided to cut him off.
She reports and the video shows that none of the other males in the bar made any motion to offer her assistance prior nor during the beating she endured and single handedly fought off. The cop as reported on CNN is 6'1" @ 250lbs. and she is 5'4" @ 115 lbs (!). Take close note of what the guys at the bar witnessing the event do and the actions of the two guys that come in late after the beatdown is is pretty much over.
The woman reported live on CNN that she is having psycohological post trauma issues along with pain in her head and back as a result of the attack.
Edit: Note...Neither the victim nor any of the witnesses knew the person was a LEO. He wa in street clothing and was off duty not working in any offical capacity. It was not possible for anyone to have known he was a cop.
I post this here in the tac scenarios area because the likely hood of this event is very real and possible in an establishment such as this, a bar, or even a more family oriented facilty such as a pool hall, bowling alley, or hell even the bar at your local TGI Friday.

So whether you can carry or not in a liquor establishment in your own state/town, what might you do had this situation devolved in front of you?
Call the cops before hand as they guy began punching the other male in so called jest?
Call the cops once he was cut off for being unable to pay for his bill and he got verbally belligerent?
Would you deem this situation allowable for interdiction upon he attacking the bartender with the chair and his fists and if so would you deploy your CCW if carry in a liquor serving establishment is allowed in your state/town?
