VIDEO: Cops Heckled By Protesters While Hunting Gunman Who Shot ATF Agent

Officers involved in a manhunt for a would-be cop killer were heckled by protesters.

Chicago, IL - Law enforcement officers were heckled by protesters as they were conducting a manhunt for a gunman who shot an ATF agent in the face on Friday.

The ATF agent was working with Chicago PD on a federal gun investigation near West 45th Street and South Hermitage Avenue when shots rang out at around 3:15 a.m., WLS-TV reported.

The agent was shot in the face and transported to the hospital in critical condition. He is expected to survive his injuries.

Following the shooting, officers from numerous agencies swarmed the area to hunt the gunman.

The law enforcement presence brought out protesters who heckled the officers involved in the manhunt, accusing the police response of being "aggressive" and "excessive," according to WGN9.

The protesters held signs which said "Stop the harassment" as they chanted "Whose streets? Our streets" and accused officers of illegally recording them.

"CPD came like soldiers," one activist told WGN9. "Bullying, pushing people."

“This is the fourth law enforcement officer that’s been shot over in that area," Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said, according to WGN9. "You think we’re going to take this lying down? I’ve got a message for them: We’re coming for you.”

Local "community organizer" Berto Aguayo posted video of some of the heckling along with a statement which said in part, "It hurts us to see this reaction when an officer is hurt as opposed to a civilian. And, it hurts even more to be mistreated in this way for the actions of a few. Throwing flashbangs, pushing little kids, and having no respect to our humanity."

A $61,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the shooter.

At least 82 people were shot in Chicago last week.

Disgraceful! Teens and young adults with no clue about real life. They think they have it soooo bad. Their attitude would be completely different if they had loved ones killed or injured while serving our country or it’s people by joining law enforcement and first responders. I blame Obama for the state of race relations we are suffering in. I hope I’m dead and gone before the country falls into their control. It’s bad enough now with the old goats running things.

This is the filth that pushes for things like DACA, and Assylum for illegal/criminials. We need to put the word out, OBEY OR DIE!

Maybe the police should consider not doing their job, let the gangs and other criminals completely take over the city and see how many protesters they have then.... and how many calls they get pleading for help.

It is sad that the young people are such numbskulls. How do they expect police to try and protect them when they do nothing but try to tear down morale? The police should always answer calls no matter what, but I don't think they need to take the crap handed out to them. I think the protesters should be arrested for obstruction of justice.

"It hurts us to see this reaction when an officer is hurt as opposed to a civilian."

Maybe because this is what happens any time police come into your neighborhood for ANY reason. Maybe police wouldn't take such a hard stance if you stopped protecting gang members and acting like this. Why should the police put themselves at risk for people who very clearly don't want them there.

A little late to call for peace when an officer has been shot in the face. Support law enforcement or support the criminals, pretty clear.

Hope they took a good look at the hands of the cpd officers on duty. If the atf guy was undercover then there could have been a mistake.

Fuck these people. Give them back "their" streets. There is probably not one in the bunch that has ever paid a cent in taxes. They should be charged for police service before the police are sent. "Chicago 911, what's your emergency and will you be paying by check or credit card?".

@Burgers Allday Not a day goes by where you don't post a moronic comment. You do realize that Chicago has some of the strictest guns laws in the country, right? So chances are who ever shot the ATF agent wasn't suppose to have a gun anyway.There was no "mistake" tard.

I think an all out assault of ICE agents in this lovely community might change the perspective of some of these Mexican citizens.

They seem to be trying to say that a police officer's life should only matter the same as a regular person's life, but I think that many here would disagree with that position and say that police lives matter more because police officers are brave and keep us safe and are underpaid. This one still sounds like friendly fire to me.

Chicago. Barry Obozo's kind of town. Thugs going wild and huge throngs of minorities on the gov't plantation. Keep em dumbed down and under gov't control and almost all of them will continue to vote for the Dims and their handouts. The silent bigotry of low expectations at work.

I really do not understand why anyone would want to be a Cop anymore. I can't believe the pay is that good to deal with all of that.

Look i've been saying this for a while now. Police go on strike for a week, and when they start complaining that the gang bangers are killing everyone, take another month. Those of us who don't live in dreamland with candy sprinkles will be fine!

Gun control is already in affect, contrary to popular beliefs you can't just go into a gun store and pick out a gun and leave, but you can go to your local gang member and get one, with no background check what so ever. The problem is not gun control, the problem is people, you can't read peoples minds. All you can do is prepare for the worst. Hence why i load .45cal, not here to hurt feelings.

If these clowns object to a police presence, then let them have their wish. The police should create a no-go zone and ignore calls from that area. I know they can’t, but they ought to. I can’t stand
protesters and their stupid unimaginative chants.

Wow, reading these comments it sounds like a bunch of uptight white douchebags that haven't had any action in the bedroom for too long and need to blame immigrants for their performance issues. JohnParker909 are the "Migrants" destroying your "purity of essence"?

Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson is quoted in the article saying "You think we’re going to take this lying down? I’ve got a message for them: We’re coming for you.” This is isn't protect and serve, this is invade and abuse.

It sounds like this law enforcement is about as welcomed in THEIR community as the British patrols that continually raided colonial homes prior to a Revolution inspiring our nation's Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

After a nearly 50 year Federal war on our urban communities under the BS excuse of the War on Drugs, and the attitudes of folks like those posting in this forum, it would be shocking if this invading force could be treated any other way than with unwelcomed hostility. It's a miracle more aren't being killed. Thankfully those being invaded are of a better caliber than those invading.
