Chicago Cop Severely Beaten Did Not Defend Her Life Out Of Fear Of Media Backlash

Chicago – A female Chicago Police Department Officer was severely beaten by a man high on PCP after she was afraid to defend her life out of fear of media backlash.

Chicago police officers were called to a vehicle collision on Wednesday morning on the city’s West Side. When officers arrived, they encountered a violent crazed man who was high on PCP.

A female officer was beaten so severely she was convinced that she was going to die. Rather than use lethal force to save her life, the officer decided to lay down her life to avoid media backlash.

Chicago PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson told the gathered media, “She thought she was going to die. She knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to, because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news.”

The officer was hospitalized after the assault. Two other officers were also hospitalized after being assaulted by the drug-addled scumbag.

The officer’s concerns about media scrutiny are legitimate. The man was presumably “unarmed” which would have been considered by many to be proof that lethal force was unjustified. The media would have fixated on the incident and sensationalized it in an attempt to get ratings. As in prior lethal force incidents, the resulting backlash could have destroyed the officer’s career, she would have been publicly vilified, her family would likely have been flooded with threats, and Chicago PD’s reputation would again be dragged through the mud.

Officers, your families need you. Don’t allow the media and Black Lives Matter groups to intimidate you and leave your children and spouses to try to go on without you.

We never want to see another officer die because they were unable to defend their lives with a necessary amount of force. Black Lives Matter political groups are constantly lobbying to take away the right of officers to defend their lives. To stand against this multi-million dollar political lobbying machine, we only have the men and women of law enforcement and those of you who declare that Blue Lives Matter.
