Parents often tell their children that if they want to avoid trouble, get home before midnight because nothing good happens after that hour. Except in Chicago, where cops can shot at 4:15 pm in the afternoon. Because, guns, or something.
From The Chicago Tribune:
Chicago police officer was shot in the shoulder as he and his partner chased three suspects down a street in the Little Village neighborhood Monday afternoon, authorities said.
The Ogden District officer, a nine-year veteran, was wounded around 4:15 p.m. in the 2300 block of South Trumbull Avenue, police said. The bullet went through his shoulder, according to a source. He was expected to be released Monday night from Stroger Hospital, according to Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.
The officers had spotted three people on the street who looked suspicious, one of them possibly with a gun, and tried to stop them, Johnson said. The three took off running as the officers got out of their squad car, he said.
Speaking outside the hospital, Johnson said details on how the officer was shot were under investigation.
I’m not sure how the officer was shot, but I know why: decades of liberal democrat policies, which the current administration, led by Rahm “Tiny Dancer” Emanuel, former Obama chief of staff, continues.

Way to go, democrats!
