COPA Video: Austin Police Involved Shooting from May 2018
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released video of a Chicago police shooting Wednesday night. This shooting took place in the Austin Neighborhood in the 15th District cops were alerted to shots fired detected by ShotSpotter technology in the 5200-block of West Ohio Street shortly before 3 a.m. on May 26 2018. Most of these police involved shootings start the exact same way, suspects refuse to comply with the first police command of STOP and as usual the command falls on deaf ears and the suspect flees and then what follows next is the suspect ends up being shot while running from police with a gun as in this case. Should police allow the suspect to get away to possibly harm someone or should they stop the suspect by shooting him?
