    Off-Duty Officer Kills Man During Robbery Attempt | NBC Chicago

    "The three demanded the sergeantís wallet, which he gave to them. One of the men then pulled out a handgun and aimed it straight at the sergeant, according to Chicago police. The sergeant pulled out his own gun and shot the male in the head, killing him."

    + 1 for the LEO!

    My real point is that it is very sad that you, or I, not being LEOs there, could have leagally done the same thing. We are not worthy of self protection there, no matter how squeeky clean we are and pass the Common Sense Background Check!

    At least he had gone to the range and learned to use the firearm (it is just another tool of the trade = like a 16 ounce framing hammer for a carpenter).

    I am very happy that the Officer did his duty! I am saddened by the state of affairs in this country by Regressivly Progressive Leftists that if you or I, as simple law abiding citizens were in the same situation.... we would have been shot by the THUG and would probably be dead.

    This country is (MESSED UP BY PEOPLE ON THE EXTREME LEFT) going down.

    Well done, Sgt. Maybe it's just me, but I thought he looked like he was expecting something like this to happen and I can't blame him. Whether it's almost 10AM or 10PM in Mayberry or the South Side, I never drop my guard while pumping gas and this is a great example of why it's good idea to keep your head on a swivel (and to spend quality time practicing your draw...)

    Nobody will ever convince me to subscribe to the "if you just give them what they want, you'll live" school of thought.

    Wow. Could have been any one of us pumping gas - thinking about a grocery list or whatever...in a flash everything changes. Perfect example of keeping vigilant always.

    Certainly glad the officer wasn't injured - or worse.

    Keep this story in mind next time you hear the anti's chanting about giving in to the demands of criminals and you will stay safer - instead of carrying a gun.

    Wow. Glad he made it out of this. Chicago gun laws are pathetic. I noticed the video was edited to remove the actual shooting. Thanks NBC, I'm glad you're there to decide what is good for me to view. God forbid you show real life.

    Just give in to the demands of criminals. It will embolden them to try their next criminal act.

    I have to echo ANGLICO'S sentiment. The only thing that saved him is the fact that he is an officer. Citizen's aren't afforded the same "luxury" of self defense.

    I believe a LtCol Cooper, USMC quote is in order.

    If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it.
    The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither judge nor jury.
    Therefore what he must be taught to fear is his victim.

    Hopefully some of the wonderful lawmakers out there will see this video and realize that if this was your average Joe in Chicago they would probably be dead. I doubt it but we can dream.

    Did anyone notice the thug that went to the passenger side of the car and opened the door and was helping himself to what ever he could find in there? Would like to have seen more of that vid to see what that thug did when his cohort got his retirement check. My guess is he is looking for a wally world to boost a new pair of under shorts....

    I took a course back when the earths crust was cooling. The instructor was a security specialist (alphabet soup retiree) He taught carry your money in a money clip. When confronted for a robbery take the money clip and throw it away from you and while the bad guys eyes follow the money either escape if possible or shoot. If a knife running is the answer distance is your friend. If a gun is involved gives you a split second to draw and shoot.

    Started carrying a money clip after that training and have never been mugged yet so I don't know first hand if it works.

    This is the same guy that taught in a knife fight grab the belt line of your opponent and pull him in very close while carving away at the femoral artery with your other hand holding the knife. He was not large not muscular not hard of speech and very easy to forget but for some reason he had that presentation that told you to move on to a softer target.
