Chicago Cops Are Now Outnumbered By Gang Members 9 To 1

Chicago, IL – Chicago gang members now outnumber cops at least nine to one as crime rates continue to skyrocket throughout the city.

That ratio could be even more dire due to the fact that a staggering number of Chicago police officers are resigning or retiring, depleting the agency’s 13,000-member force even further, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Chicago Alderman Ray Lopez revealed on Sunday that the Chicago Police Department (CPD) is currently on track to witness “one of the highest retirement numbers in the city’s history” by the end of the year.

According to the Chicago Police Pension Board, 363 officers left CPD between Jan. 1 and June 30, easily surpassing the 339 officers who left the force in all of 2018, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Another 56 officers are slated to wrap up their CPD careers this month alone.

CPD had 475 retirements in 2019 and 560 in 2020, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Conversely, Chicago’s 55 known gangs boast membership of approximately 117,000, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said last year, according to the New York Post.

1 officer fatally shot, 4 injured in 10-hour Texas standoff with barricaded suspect

“The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of one of our own tonight, SWAT Commander Sgt. Josh Bartlett,”

July 16 (UPI) — A west Texas county sheriff’s sergeant was fatally shot and four other law enforcement agents were wounded in a shootout that erupted when confronting a suspect who had barricaded himself in a residence, authorities said.

“The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of one of our own tonight, SWAT Commander Sgt. Josh Bartlett,” the office said in a statement.

Police chief Albert Garcia of Levelland, west of Lubbock, told reporters during a press briefing that a second officer, Levelland police Sgt. Shawn Wilson, was in stable but critical condition after undergoing surgery.

The other injured officers, he said, were treated and released.

The Levelland Police Department said earlier that four law enforcement officers had been wounded, including two critically.

“In my career, it’s almost been 30 yeas in my career, and I have been through some pretty treacherous types of situations before in the past, but never have I lost anybody or never have I been a chief of police where I’ve had a member of my team be injured as severely as they have been today,” he said.

Garcia said the suspect, 22-year-old Omar Soto-Chavira, was taken into custody at around 11:30 p.m. and was transported to a local hospital to treat his undisclosed injuries.

The more than 10-hour standoff began after 1 p.m. Thursday when police were called to a residence in Levelland about a person “acting strange and walking around with what appeared to be a large gun,” a Garcia said in an earlier press briefing.

Not long after police arrived and contacted the suspect, he re-entered the residence and opened fire, Garcia said.

Bartlett was shot shortly after arriving on the scene to assist local police at 2:15 p.m. and was transported to Covenant Medical Center in Levelland where he was later pronounced dead, the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office said.

Lubbock County Sheriff Kelly Rowe described the residence to reporters as a mobile home and said they were able to take the suspect into custody with the use of a robot and gas that flushed him from the bathroom into an open area where he surrendered to police.

Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parrish has ordered for flags on all county buildings to be lowered to half-staff in Bartlett’s honor.

“This terrible loss is a solemn reminder of the risks our brave law enforcement officers face while protecting our communities,” he said in a statement. “I ask all Lubbock County citizens to join us in praying for his family, for healing for the other officers who were injured in the standoff and for the entire Lubbock County Sheriff’s Department.”

‘Who wants to be a cop?’

‘Who wants to be a cop?’: New series takes deep dive into Fla. police academy

Journalists at the Tampa Bay Times spent six months shadowing police recruits. This is their story

By Suzie Ziegler 

TAMPA, Fla. — A new series from the Tampa Bay Times asks one simple question: in an age of police reckoning, who wants to be a cop? 

To find an answer, Times journalists spent nearly six months at St. Petersburg College’s Law Enforcement Academy. There they were given permission to observe training as cadets tackled physical challenges and grappled with a national attitude shift about policing. The result is an eight-part series that takes a deep and poignant dive into the police recruit experience in 2021. 

The first three chapters are available now, with a new chapter released daily through July 18. 

According to the paper, the academy director allowed Times journalists to drop into classes and training at any time. They were present for most of the scenes described in the series and interviewed other attendees when they were not. The coaches provided copies of cadets’ textbooks, tests and slideshows. The journalists also closely followed three cadets, who shared their essays, presentations and test scores. 

In the first installment, recruits explained in their own words why they chose to attend the academy. 

“I want to come home at the end of the day and know I made a difference,” said Hannah Anhalt, a 25-year-old criminal justice major at the University of Central Florida.

Another recruit described having positive interactions with police while growing up in a rough family. Others want to be heroes, find camaraderie, mirror their mentors and save juveniles from sex trafficking. 

These 30 recruits are mostly white and male, says the Times, but their class is still the most diverse yet: seven women, five Black people, two Latinos. Their instructor, identified as Coach Saponare, says he expected applications to plummet after last year’s protests. Instead, more people than ever applied.

A cop’s split-second decision: Real or replica?

A question posted on Quora asked, “What’s it like to be a police officer who sees a kid with what looks like a real gun?” 20-year veteran Officer Christopher Hawk gave his opinion on the topic, below.

It was around 1:30 a.m. on a typical early Fall Saturday night.  There were lots of people out in the campus area of the local major university, and most of them had at least one or two drinks in one of the local bars or house parties.

So, there I was, stopped at a red light, when a group of six average-looking college aged white males crossed the intersection in front of me.  One of the men reached back to adjust something at the small of his back and before his shirt went back down, I clearly saw a pistol grip sticking up from the back of his blue jeans.  I immediately thought it looked like a .45 pistol.

I called in a “man with a gun” to my dispatcher as I put the car in park, and then hit my squad car’s overhead lights as I opened my door.  I unholstered and drew my gun up on-target, and had this guy clearly in my sights, center mass (pointed at the center of his back), as he looked over his shoulder at me and began turning towards me.

Time slowed.  I know I shouted, “Get on the ground!” at him several times, but the idiot kid actually reached back and pulled the gun out, then threw it into the gutter. It only took a second, but felt like ten or so.

Legally, I could have shot him when I first saw the gun in his hand as he brought it forward.  I was waiting to see if the barrel started coming up, but I recognized, even in that moment, that seeing the barrel would be too late if he wanted to shoot me. I remember thinking, “I’m about to kill you!” and a huge sense of relief as I saw him drop the gun. I was probably three pounds into my trigger’s advertised 5.5 pound trigger weight when he dropped the gun.

When the gun hit the ground, I knew it was a BB gun — a replica .45 semi-auto, but he didn’t have the CO2 canister in it, so the little knob on the bottom wasn’t there.

It clattered on the concrete gutter pan with a rattle, not the solid “thunk” that a real pistol would have. 

I still ordered the kid down; I wasn’t 100% sure the gun was just a BB gun. I was also concerned about the guy’s buddies, since they might have interfered or even had their own guns with them.

The cavalry arrived quickly, but it felt like an hour while I kept the kid at gunpoint on the street.  Luckily, the friends stayed back (and, amazingly, stayed at the scene instead of taking off).

So, what was it like? It was terrifying, plain and simple. When I finally got the chance to talk to the damned fool, I was angry. He said he “thought it would be fun” to carry the gun with him to the bars, which he thought made perfect sense in that college aged I’m-not-really-thinking-about-possible-consequences-to-this-really-stupid-idea kind of way.

I had nightmares for a few days afterwards. I dreamt once or twice that I shot him dead, right there, then picked up the gun and saw it was fake. I woke up bawling once.  I also dreamt a few times about hesitating too long and seeing a .45 slug exploding out of the barrel towards me.  Those times, I woke up screaming, once sitting up with my hands extended like I was holding my pistol towards the kid in my dream.  In one dream, my Glock’s slide dropped off as I drew it out of my holster. In another, the kid didn’t have a gun with him. 

Yeah.  Not fun at all.

Edit: I should also mention that this occurred in Illinois before the concealed carry law passed.  It was illegal at the time to carry a handgun outside of your home or personally-owned business.
