A horrible Chicago News Story
Chicago, IL—While I was a guest on the Geoff Pinkus WIND Radio Show, we heard a sickening story breaking that a young 7th District tactical officer, Alejandro Valdez, 27 was shot in the head as he was investigating a shots fired call on South Hermitage Avenue. The officer was taken off life support after a 14-hour battle to save his life failed.
The young officer was only three years into his career and earned 22 Honorable Mentions and a Department Commendation. He was engaged to another officer and was about to start a family. The officer was ambushed by cowardly criminals that opened fire in a drive-by shooting.
Two Gangster Disciple hood rats are in custody. They are both violent criminals and convicted felons. It looks like they are going to stand trial for a capitol murder charge.
Chicago police officers need greater firepower than their service pistols now. Mayor Richard M. Daley has dragged his feet and does not give a rat’s ass about the men and women sworn to protect life and property in Chicago.
The problem is made much worse by severe under staffing of officers. That of course while the mayor and various politicians and political supporters have Chicago officers as personal bodyguards.
How many more officers must die before they have the right manpower and tools to protect themselves?
Here are pictures from the funeral borrowed from Renee at Intheloop.tv
