This is what we refer to as a 'head start'

Police officers in Chicago may soon require permission from a supervisor before pursuing a suspect on foot, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said. 

Lightfoot promised to disclose details “soon” about a police policy change. 

“No one should die as a result of a foot chase,” the mayor said. 

Police methods have faced new scrutiny recently following the release last week of video footage from the March 29 police shooting death of 13-year-old Adam Toledo. The case has sparked new debate on police use of deadly force.


  1. Dear Chitcongo cops, don't quit. The pay is good, benefits aren't bad, and as long as you stay out of the line of fire, the problem will eventually perish at the hand of another problem.
    If you quit, they win.
    Write the reports, keep your head down, but your eyes watchful. Some day sanity will return and you can watch him descent with an army of angels.

  2. sounds like the military. Asking permission before you may engage.

  3. Groot has spoken. I guess the Windy City street cops can turn in their Department issued Nike track shoes now.

  4. More diktats from those who know nothing about police work. I swear, it's like they're intentionally trying to increase the murder rate!

  5. Just for the Chicago police to remember, while the perps can outrun you, they cannot outrun a well aimed shot, after you yell halt!
    Or my personal favorite, the cop fired a warning shot, into the back of the perps head.

  6. No one should die because they like your sneakers either, Madame Mayor.

    But they do.

  7. Yeah, fuck it....just let all the damn crooks get away with whatever they want....I hope Lezzie Lightfoot's house is the first to be B+E'd....
