VIDEO: 3-4 Chicago Officers Hurt After 'Protesters' Attack Following Shooting

Protesters turned violent Saturday night following a fatal officer-involved shooting.

Chicago, IL - Protesters in Chicago started attacking police officers following a fatal officer-involved shooting earlier Saturday evening (videos below.)

The incident happened in the area of 71st St and Chappel Ave at around 5:30 p.m.

Chicago PD Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said that officers were working foot patrol when they spotted a man who looked like he may have a weapon in his waistband.

The officers confronted the suspect, who then became combative. As the suspect fought with officers, he flailed away from them.

The suspect then appeared to be reaching for his weapon, and officers fatally shot him.

Officers recovered a semi-automatic firearm and magazines from the suspect.

Chief Waller added that the suspect did not have a concealed carry permit.

The suspect and officers have not been identified at this time.

Almost immediately following the shooting, a large crowd of protesters formed and started threatening to shoot the police.

The crowd spread the story about how a barber named "Snoop" was unarmed and shot in the back as he was walking home from work.

The crowd also created a second narrative where people claimed that Snoop was armed, but they said he had a concealed carry permit.

The crowd started jumping on police cars and clashing with officers.

Many in the crowd threatened police officers, saying that they better not be around come nighttime.

At around sunset, people in the crowd started to throw glass bottles, rocks, and bottles of urine at officers. Chief Waller said three to four officers were injured in the attacks.

Officers responded by ordering the protesters back and taking down troublemakers and people who refused to listen.

The guy that started the whole thing just lost control... too many sheeps!! They side with the crowd, because of all their blind hate.. getting in trouble and hating more,they don't think their behavior has anything to do with everything... this will never end, because one thing leads to another.. Prime example here!!!!

If only they had this much passion about getting jobs or when they kill each other.

Until then

Just a couple of thoughts.....

  1. I wonder if stricter federal minority control laws could have prevented this tragedy?
  2. Once a reporter decides to imbed himself in a riot, he is no longer protected by his occupation. At that point he is just like anyone else.
  3. The higher ups at the CPD should have been able to predict this outcome the moment they sent officers into a war zone in an attempt to control violent crime. Now, the family of this criminal will sue and of course the city will pay out. Then the officers involved will become the scapegoats and lose their jobs or be indicted by a city scared of riots. If you're a Chicago officer, do yourself a favor and only answer calls for service. Don't self initiate confrontations like this one. You'll only end up on the front page news as the big, bad, racist officer.

It's really sad that it's come to this thanks to the last administration's efforts to start a race war. Sadly some have fallen into the trap and this is the end result. Our country is torn now and needs mending, I just hope people come to their damn senses and understand when you break the law and threaten others, even by carrying a concealed weapon when not legal, you are headed for serious trouble and may even be shot by police, and if you reach for it, forget it, you will be shot.

They're just more useful idiots these rioters...

Following Alinsky's rules....

The Rules "Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have." "Never go outside the expertise of your people." "Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy." "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." "A good tactic is one your people enjoy." "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag." "Keep the pressure on." "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself." "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition." "If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside" "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative." "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."

@ByAnyMeensNecessary - Thanks, I'm thinking about using bullet points the next time to make it easier for the anti-police trolls to follow. Keep it simple for simple minds, ya know?

This so called reporter has lied from the beginning. First he is thrown to the ground by Police, then he is pushed to the ground by Police and lastly he is pushed backwards and stumbles but can’t remember if he landed on the ground!! If this guy with a gun was so innocent why did he flee? I say, put a fence around Chicago and let them have at it!

Question: Is it possible to allow Chicago to secede from America?

The whole Chicago police department needs an overhaul, starting from the top. They have been ineffective for decades, and it's clear they have no idea what they are doing. Like many other cities as well.

The Chicago PD doesn't need to be overhauled. They're not the ones putting guns in the hands of criminals who then shoot and kill indiscriminately. What we need is for minorities to take responsibility for their neighborhoods. The real problem, as most experts will tell you, is that blacks have almost no real family structure. But, as usual, people want to blame law enforcement for black children growing up in single family homes which creates an environment where these kids look to the streets for guidance. Look a little closer to home, but be careful, you might not like what you see.

Chicago PD in a no win situation. Caught between an ultra-liberal do-nothing mayor and a violent and well armed black community, there are no options but to let the thugs run wild and kill each other!

The reason the story changes immediately is because most of these idiots have been brainwashed their whole lives into believing anything that happens to them, by the police, is because they are black, not because they committed a crime. Way back in the early 80's most of the folks I dealt with in Oakland thought the crime was getting caught not the actual crime they committed. They blamed the police back then, but there was some actual acknowledgement of their own actions. This has been getting worse over the decades, mostly because of the press and the left wing asswipe politicians not holding all groups to the same standard. The last administration put it front and center and caused this problem to escalate faster and further. I actually laughed when the "reporter" got his phone knocked out if his hand.

@ByAnyMeansNecessary: They are an embarassment to the entire HUMAN race! Thankfully, they don't represent the majority of even those who look like them. These fools are so desperate to hold onto their victim status they are willing to stoop to lies and violence to keep it. Sad way to live, really!

@LEO0301 Are you getting your info from 1994? Do me a favor: check to see who is the fastest growing demographic for prison currently.

Here's a hint. It looks less like me, more like @Katarina. on that note, i wish the katarinas of the country would behave themselves. The rampant drug use and kid fucking is getting out of hand.

I read my previous comment and at no point do I mention current incarceration rates. What I did mention is that black children mostly grow up in single family homes. In fact, if you look at current stats, you'll see that number has risen to over 72%. If you think that number is exaggerated, bring up your own numbers to show otherwise.
