Boy, 16, among five people shot by Chicago police over 36 hours

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-police-shoot-4th-person-since-friday-morning-20140705,0,2828951.story

Chicago police shot and killed a 16-year-old boy as he hid under a car in the Gresham neighborhood, one of five people shot by officers in the city over 36 hours, according to authorities.
Police were called to 87th and Morgan streets around 6:30 p.m. Saturday when someone called 911 and said someone had been firing shots in the area, Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden said at the scene.

Officers started chasing someone who matched the caller's description but lost him for a few minutes when he ducked into a gangway between Morgan and Sangamon Avenue, Camden said.

The suspect tried to blend in at a party in the 8700 block of South Morgan Street but left and jumped a fence when the people at the party started complaining, police said.

The boy then hid under a car as officers caught up with him, police said. He began getting out from under the car and the officers told him to drop the gun, Camden said. He did not and the officers shot him, Camden said.

2. If you automatically believe what the police say

 

I used to live in Chicago
you have to be very careful about believing what the police department says

5. 16 year old shot in Chicago = gang member. Fact of Life

Chicago is gangland. 50+ people have been shot by gang bangers already this weekend. All the shooters were under 18 with illegal guns.

6. I'll defer judgement until more facts come in.

I remember the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta when everyone "knew" Richard Jewell was guilty until the FBI's shenanigan's came to light and the case fell apart. Later turned out that (name escapes me) the guy who bombed the abortion clinic and gay bar planted that bomb as well.
