Title: Seriously Violent Video shows officer fatally shoot suspected kidnapper

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released video Friday of a Chicago police officer fatally shooting a suspected kidnapper on the Northwest Side. The body camera video shows an officer confronting a man July 8 in an apartment in the Belmont Central neighborhood.

After partially entering the room, the police officer yells, “Don’t move. Chicago police. Don’t move,” the video shows. The suspect, reclined on the sofa, leans forward, yells something inaudible and begins to turn over, the video shows. As the suspect places his hand near an apparent handgun on the edge of the sofa, the officer lets off several shots, and the suspect falls to the ground. He died later at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said.

Ephraim Eaddy, a COPA spokesman, said the investigation into the officer’s actions is ongoing. The suspected kidnapper, 42-year-old Luis E. Vasquez, had allegedly carjacked two people the night before in the west suburbs, police have said. He drove the man and woman — both in their 40s — to the 6200 block of West Grand Avenue and held them against their will inside an apartment, police said. They were handcuffed, but escaped their captor while he was sleeping, police said. An off-duty officer driving nearby saw them at 6:45 a.m. and learned that they had been kidnapped. He called for backup.

Officers arrived shortly after and attempted to enter the suspected kidnapper’s building, police said. Video shows them attempting to unlock a front gate, but ultimately jumping a fence and entering through the rear porch. After checking several empty rooms, the officer confronted Vasquez upstairs. It was unclear why Vasquez had allegedly kidnapped his victims. In a statement, Elgin police said that Vasquez knew them. The officer who fired the shots was placed on 30-day desk duty, per protocol, police said. COPA, which investigates shootings involving Chicago police officers, is required to release video relevant to an investigation within 60 days of the incident.

The best part starts at 01:40; I pre-cued the video to play starting there.

I have no problem with police procedure in clearing this building and dealing with a violent perpetrator.

It does show that bodycams can really help the courts and the public in sorting out proper police conduct. Only really bad cops oppose the use of the bodycam IMO. Good cops seem to recognize that it helps document that they acted lawfully and professionally when dealing with violent suspects and various miscreants. I think bodycams will even prove very valuable in training police recruits in dealing decisively with violent perps, something that may be outside their own realm of experience when they are new to the job.

I'm so glad you liked it.     : )

I picked this story up over at WhatFingerNews, a nice aggregation site, 1000% pro-Trump. The guy's HTML editing could use some pointers but he has a nose for news and for a story that tells itself. I've been intending to post a few more stories from there so I picked this one.

In today’s angry & dysfunctional society, Axon body cams are essential.

The public and the professional cops and PD chiefs seem to favor them strongly.

The only ones opposing the bodycam are the bad cops.

I know I personally behave a little better and consider my actions a little more when I know I'm being recorded, am less tempted to cut a few corners. I can't imagine that cops are any different.

And bodycam footage can immunize cops from criticism if some social media outrage mob comes demanding their head for a perfectly lawful arrest of a violent perp. Bodycams can help protect cops who are enforcing the law to the limits of the law and no one can say a word. You just don't argue with that video of the actual events. It can even make the cop look more sympathetic to the public as they see how a cop faces the hazard of clearing a dingy building that looks like some crack den, apartment by apartment, watchful for any perp hidden in any apartment and then finally dealing with that violent perp who wakes up and reaches for his gun to shoot that cop.

At first I thought it was a training video.

Good demonstration of by-the-book police methods. I thought along the same lines.

You notice the professional conduct, how routine these cops make it look.

True, but I was thinking of the setting -- empty hallways, bare rooms with minimal furnishings, lots of light, etc.

I'm so glad you liked [the video] .
It was a nicely thoughtful and encouragingly accurate presentation. It should be noted that the action seen in this video is not idiosyncratic to the type of procedures that over 99% of the entire law enforcement force normally perform all the time.

You have provided a refreshing change from the salvo – constant barrage – of “bad cop” headlines that we generally see about police officers plastered all down the sidebar and the hubbub found in biased posts we commonly read from one particular eternally disgruntled individual who shall at this time go unnamed.

Thank you …

Hand Salute,
Gatlin
