MANHUNT AFTER TWO CHICAGO COPS SHOT WHILE INSIDE VEHICLE AT HIGH-CRIME BACK OF THE YARDS NEIGHBORHOOD
Two Chicago police officers were shot and wounded late Tuesday when two vehicles pulled up alongside their car and someone started firing indiscriminately in what authorities believe was a targeted attack.
One officer was shot in the arm and hip and the other in the back, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson visited them at Stroger Hospital and said both were alert and expected to recover.
‘We believe that the officers were definitely targeted,’ Guglielmi said.
The shooting happened in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, a high crime area on the city’s South Side.
The officers were conducting a follow up investigation to a previous incident when two vehicles pulled up and those inside began firing. The officers were wearing civilian clothes at the time but had on vests with police badges on them, Guglielmi said.
A manhunt was underway for the suspects and Johnson said police were questioning ‘a few’ people of interest in the case. Johnson said police found several weapons and a vehicle they believe are linked to the shooting.
Chris Villanueva, 36, said he was walking back to his car in a strip mall parking lot south of the shooting scene, when he heard about a dozen rapid-fire shots.
‘I thought it was fireworks maybe, but around here you hear gunshots a lot,’ he told the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘Next thing, cops are everywhere.’
VIDEO OF POLICE DRAGGING BUMPED UNITED AIRLINE PASSENGER AFTER OVERBOOKED FLIGHT TO MAKE ROOM FOR STAFF
Outrageous! An O’Hare airport cop slammed a United Airlines passenger into an arm rest, dragging the bleeding and unconscious Chinese man who was bumped off the overbooked flight to make room for airline’s own staff.
From Daily Mail:
An airport cop who body-slammed a United passenger and dragged him off an overbooked flight was put on leave today – as his bosses condemned his actions amid mounting outrage over video of the incident.
The Chicago Department of Aviation said it ‘obviously’ did not condone the behavior of the security officer who was filmed slamming the man into an arm rest, knocking him unconscious and dragging him away by his arms as he bled from the mouth at O’Hare.
United is facing growing anger after they selected the 69-year-old man – who claimed to be a doctor – to be bumped from the overbooked flight to Louisville to make room for its staff on Sunday night.
The airline’s CEO apologized today even as new video emerged of the man, who had refused to leave the flight, bleeding heavily from the mouth and mumbling about suicide in the aftermath of his brutal treatment.
In the clip, the dazed man chants ‘just kill me, just kill me’ as blood pours from his mouth.
It seems to have been filmed after another clip that shows the victim somehow broke free from the airport cops and ran back onto the plane chanting ‘I need to go home, I need to go home.’
Their statement released on Sunday night said: ‘Aviation Officers arrived on scene attempted to carry the individual off of the flight when he fell. His head subsequently struck an armrest causing injuries to his face.’
It claimed that the man had begun yelling his displeasure at being selected to leave and was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Today the department retreated from the statement, referring all enquiries to the Aviation Department.

HOW DOES UNITED DECIDE WHO GETS BUMPED FROM OVERBOOKED FLIGHTS?
United’s contract of carriage states that passengers to be forcibly taken off a flight in the event of overbooking will be ‘determined based on a passenger’s fare class, itinerary, status of frequent flyer program membership, and the time in which the passenger presents him/herself for check-in without advanced seat assignment.’
That means that if you have a certain type of fare class, checked in early, have a flier status such as gold, or even just own a barely used frequent flier card, you are less likely to be bumped.
But passengers taking advantage of budget seats appear to be of less value to the airline

‘Two choices for Trump supporters in Chicago: Be silent or be bullied’
So, after 25 years, after a lifetime for my husband, we have to leave. In the end, it wasn’t the high taxes, constant road construction or high crime. It wasn’t the unchecked gang violence or political cronyism. In the end, we have to leave because of the hate you are willing to tolerate.
I’d like to say, it’s not you, it’s me—but Chicago, I’ve got to be honest . . . it’s you. You’ve changed. You are no longer the nose-to-the-grindstone hardworking Democratic City of the Big Shoulders. You have a Trump-sized chip on that big shoulder, and it has turned you into a city of fear, hate and division. A city that encourages political bullying.
