Skip to comments.Cops: Off-duty sergeant fatally shoots teen during robbery
Posted on 02/12/2014 8:18:09 AM PST by armydawg505
A gun pointed at his gut, the off-duty sheriff's sergeant digs through his pockets with his left hand, fumbling for money, as the three robbers surround him at the Far South Side gas station.
The sergeant is surer with his right hand, quickly drawing his own gun and firing point-blank. The gunman, 16, drops at his feet as the two others scatter, according to surveillance video that captured the robbery Monday night at a Citgo station at 103rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, across the street from Gately Stadium.
The sergeant swings around at the fleeing robbers, then points the gun down as the gunman struggles to get up. The video shows the sergeant kicking away the robber's gun and then opening the passenger door of his own car, apparently to get his phone.

I bet if King Obama had a son he would look just like this Thug.
Good job, sarge.
God Bless America!
If the off duty officer is white and the 16 year old kid was black, we will have...to one degree or another...another Trayvon Martin outcry about a mean “whitey,” gunning down a poor black kid that the “white society,” caused to act this way.
If they are both black or both white, we will not hear that type of story.
The truth of the matter is, it is the leftists/libs/dems/progressives that have purposefully put entire segments of our population, particularly minorities, in a permanent under-class position so they can shower freebies, welfare, goodies, obama phones...you name it...on them in order to buy their vote while holding them in the damnable financial slavery that they have “pied piped” them into.
As it is, good for this off-duty Sergeant. he did what he had to do to protect his life and proprty, and a thug kid will now never rob and threaten anyone else.
Black and Latino Americans: For God’s Sake Wake UP!
......purest form of STREET JUSTICE I ever read about.
And, to all liberals, in advance of your whining about the poor 16 year old not having a dad, was on drugs, was controlled by a gang, was hungry, it’s rich people’s fault, too many guns and on and on..............millions of us out here worrying about the very existence of this country say FY to all of you!
We’ve had it and this 16 year old kids fate was sealed 16 years and nine months earlier by two craven black people who should not have even been able to insemminate! Since u bastards love regulating EVERYTHING, regulate that!!!!
And all of us would say the same thing about a white or brown kid too. So, spare us all that BS too!
Personally Ive never been able to trust a woman with two last names...............e.g. hillery rodham clinton.
Can’t wait to see how many people want to jump in and say it is obviously the police man’s fault.
Since this took place in Chicago I suspect the policeman will be fired. The Chicago Way does not allow for self defense
And the point is that 98% or more of us on this forum didn't even think about the race of either the perps or the sarge when we read this article.
We're just glad that one more honest citizen is still alive and one less perp is stalking society's streets, regardless of their race.
Two things pissed me off about the video, though.
1) my video had the ‘meat’ of the action obscured by a blurring window that hid the race/color of the perpetrators as well as the LEO. Later on, you could tell the LEO appears white. The feral little punk got exactly what he deserved. The other two showed exactly what they were - roaches fleeing the light.
2) This video was preceded by a lying POS advertisement for John Cornyn for Texas Senator about how he's rated A from NRA and totally for 2A rights. I have to clean my keyboard now. Just damn!
Look for the mother to start making the rounds on liberal talk shows.
It’s a good thing he was a cop. A common citizen doesn’t have the right to defend himself there.
Little punk used his Glock like a pointer telling the ‘victim’ what to do. That was his major mistake. He was too confident in the helplessness of the victim.
It cost him (deservedly so) his worthless, pointless angry entitlement life.
When you are staring down the barrel of a gun...you do not care what race the person holding the gun is. You care about surviving the incident, and hopefully stopping the perpetrator in the process.
This sergeant did that. God bless him for it.
We have internal enemies however, who have, over decades, carefully engineered this situation for their own ideological and political benefit. They will make an issue of the race if they can.
IMHO, the initial and predominant fault and blam falls to this perpetrator himself, who chose to threaten and perhaps take innocent life in order to steal. After that, I very quickly go to these sick power-mongers who have knowingly engineered such a situation that is putting all Americans at risk, for their own gain.
In a sain and just world...sooner or later...such people would adorn lamp posts.
Which is a very good reason why you will not see me there for the rest of my life.
Yup. Defense for me but not for thee.....for the ‘common citizen’we’ll file an incident report and get right back to ya.
Actually, not a bad deal for the handout crowd: get those many freebies and all that's expected of them in return is to vote RAT. Not a bad deal at all.
You can’t shoot fleeing thugs? Who knew?
Not so fast. The only factor that counts here is the race/race situation. White cop black dirtbag means guilty cop. You get the point. Let’s wait until the Grand Black Wizard Jesse Jackson checks in.
Ron White explained the way around this. Just keep shooting em in the back—eventually they will get curious, and turn around.
Actually, it is an incredibly bad deal for them.
No self respect.
...and coupled with the “feree” government education they are given:
No chance to know any better and climb out.
At least not for the vast, vast majority.
And ultimately...it all comes apart when enough people and their succeeding generations get on it and the money they take from the hard woking people runs out.
At that time, they become e cannon ofdder for the power mongers controlling their lives and it leads to their genocide by such tyrants.
Amen to T.J.
I thought that guns were not useful for self defense. Who knew?
