    Raasan Shannon Charged With Stealing Wounded Officer's Gun

    Rasaan Shannon, 22, Charged with Stealing Police Officer Densey Cole's Gun as He Laid Critically Injured and Pinned inside his Police SUV

    It is unconscionable that someone could seek to capitalize off the injury of anyone, much less an injured police officer. Rasaan Shannon, 22, has been arrested and charged with strong arm robbery, disarming a peace officer and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon. He allegedly stole the gun from the police officer, Densey Cole II, who was critically injured and pinned inside his police SUV last Wednesday. Of course, he should have known that he would have been caught, but nonetheless, this dirtbag just couldn't help himself. He just had to steal the gun and later claim he "found" it. His brazen actions are reprehensible and should be severely punished to send the right message that what was done to that officer will not be tolerated one iota. His bond was set at $300,000 Saturday during a bond hearing in front of Cook County Judge Donald Panarese. With any luck, he won't be able to post the 10 percent and will sit in jail until his trial is due to start.


    Police said Officer Cole was responding to a burglary in progress when he was injured in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of West 98th and South Halsted streets about 11:45 a.m. Wednesday. Four other people were also injured in the wreck. While he was pinned in his vehicle after the crash, onlookers rifled through his belongings and Shannon allegedly stole his gun. Edward Blackledge, 85, of the 9700 block of South Emerald Avenue, was cited with failure to reduce speed and failure to yield to a vehicle entering an intersection, police said.

    "Whoever would prey on a wounded officer, incapacitated, and take his weapon and then roll him around with a spinal injury to try to steal his wallet, is reprehensible to me,'' police Supt. Jody Weis said. "I mean, what type of individual would do that? It's beyond imagination." Cole has been a Chicago Police officer for 16 years, and his parents were also officers, officials said. Source: Chicago Sun Times

    Department officials have also expressed concern that the removal of the gun from Cole's holster had caused him to shift in a way that contributed to his injuries. So, this alleged criminal may have exacerbated the injuries of this police officer. Shameful and reprehensible. Since he is a convicted felon, the judge should sentence him to the maximum allowable under the law.

    "Unconscionable" is far too polite a word to describe this piece of human trash.

    Welcome to the mean streets of Chicago. This was reported in May 2009. I wonder if there has been any followup.

    While I doubt the death penelty will be applied, it is more than justified.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    I'm waiting for Jessee Jackson to show up and explain how the kid is an honor student, active church member, and all-around asset to the community. Of course, the fact that the officer's gun was so accessible is what caused all this in the first place. One could take this farther and file suit against the police department for causing all this to happen in the first place.

    Wounded officer or civilian, the act is dispicable and Rasaan Shannon should spend a good amount of time in jail for it.
    A traffic ticket is formal recognition of a lapse in situational awareness.
