Chicago, IL—A violent purse snatcher is captured by bystanders as a professional news photographer documents the criminal’s resistance to a citizen’s arrest. Before it’s over the unidentified thug is bloodied.
Had Chicago police officers caused that incidental injury they’d be stripped of the stars, firearms and police powers perhaps for months until they are cleared of wrongdoing or are suspended or fired.
As for the hapless mutt, he was eligible for release for a $100.00 cash misdemeanor bond. This fellow is undoubtedly free right now to do his deeds until he gets caught killing someone or gets killed.
If you live in Chicago you’re used to avoiding these predatory savages. They are here to stay. Don’t ask the police to risk their lives but also the ability to feed their families by confronting and arresting criminals.
Chicago police have been transformed to observe and report rather than actually enforce the law.
Go ahead brush up on your unarmed combat skills so you can waste a whole lot of your time in court.
See all the pictures and hear the photographer describe the event.
