    Post BAD: Chicago police officer was shot and killed Wednesday.

    I refuse to post the headline that CNN posted- CNN.com

    (CNN) -- A Chicago police officer was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon during a struggle with a suspect in a police facility parking lot, police said

    The officer was walking to his vehicle in the parking lot at 61st and Racine on the city's South Side, after completing a shift with the department's Operation to Protect Youth Program, when he encountered the offender, said James Jackson, assistant superintendent of police operations.

    "The 24-year-old suspect disarmed the police officer and then shot him," Jackson said at a news conference Wednesday night.

    The department believes the suspect was involved in an armed robbery a short distance away after the shooting, said Jackson.

    "Several officers quickly responded and there was an exchange of gun fire with the offender. The suspect was shot. His injuries are non-life threatening," said Jackson.

    The suspect was in stable condition at Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, according to a police spokesman.

    Police would not release the name of the 43-year-old officer until all family members were notified, Jackson said. He said the officer was a veteran of the police force and worked in the education and training division.

    Can't wait to see how they try to blame this on the Supreme Court ruling.

    If they would just ban the police from having guns, this wouldn't have happened!

    That wasn't a gun battle that was an execution

    Let me get this straight, police officer was disarmed by a criminal then shot by the same criminal and the clinton news network calls it a shoot out. That just does not compute since it would at least take two weapons to make a shoot out.

    He used the officer's gun though.

    A tragic event, even an officer with their retention training can't win EVERY fight. which is why even with my martial arts training I hope to never even get into a fist fight...fights are ugly and no plan survives initial contact.

    A sad event indeed. Up until the late 1990's the department of justice statistics showed that one out of every five officers shot and killed were shot with their own gun. This 20% number has been reduced with the advent of security holsters and better weapon retention training but unfortunately continues to occur.

    i read gun battle....a battle involving a gun...then there was an exchange of gunfire with the officers who responded...hence...a shootout...but dont let your disdain for the media get in the way of them actually reporting a tragic event...

    sad situation...and at a police facility...hard to believe someone would try an attack there but nothing surprises me anymore...

    I'm shocked that this guy had to struggle with an officer to get a gun. He probably could have picked one up pretty cheap from any BG walking on the street and didn't have to fight for one. Sad story and may he RIP.

    Very sad event. I was waiting for Dickie to appear on the news last night regarding this and gun control in general, but no such luck. He just expressed his sympathies for the family.

    But it wouldn't have surprised me if he gone off and ranted about the Supreme Court and the need to ban guns....

    Remember the thread about how BGs would never intentionally target an armed (OC) person? It appears (though this article is admittedly incomplete) that this particular BG deliberately targeted a COP to take his gun, took it, killed the officer, then used his gun to commit an armed robbery a little ways down the block...

    If any one still thinks a gun is a talisman that will ward off all criminals....

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    How ugly. Sounds like he was doing good things with his life, working in the Youth program and all.

    Too bad the BG lived and the cop died.Capital punishment would fit this one to a tee.
