Sounds like a standard procedure to me. Every use of an officer's firearm is reviewed as a matter of course.I noticed it at the bottom it mentioned the Illinois state police are investigating the officers use of force. Do you guys thinks that’s there just to appease some people. What’s there to investigate.
An attempt to delay or limit the BLM rioting. Even if the perp was white or "other."

That would be correct but the police officer was already shot 4 times and bad guy was still Shooting .Quote:
The unnamed “hero” could be a retired or off-duty law enforcement officer to whom these requirements do not apply.
Or he could be a resident of another state where he has obtained his CCW permit. But only if he resides in Hawaii, New Mexico, South Carolina, Virginia, Arkansas, Mississippi, or Texas.
There is no public record of the unnamed CCW holder being handcuffed and detained for questioning which is SOP in such cases. There is no record of him even being questioned. It may be that he was well-known to the local police officers and was consequently given professional courtesy.
For the average citizen with a concealed-carry permit, however, such blatant interference with a police “investigation” would likely spell more trouble for himself than he wants. Most trainers advise staying out of harm’s way in such an instance for many good reasons including: to avoid getting shot, either by the police officers mistaking the citizen for the BG (bad guy), or by the BG himself; and to avoid shooting an innocent bystander, with all the legal and financial implications that would follow.
The only time a CCW holder should become involved in a situation as dangerous as this would be if the officers either request assistance or grant it to the civilian if he offers it. Then he becomes an officer of the law with power to arrest. Unquote. Police Commend Concealed Carry Citizen for Assisting in Chicago Shootout
Sorry, since I don’t get paid for nor am I living in retirement from a ‘serve & protect’ career, I shall remain a good witness to the event, UNLESS I can unequivocally state I feared for my or my loved one’s life!
I always keep OJ’s not guilty criminal verdict in mind, only to lose everything due to a ‘guilty’ verdict from his civil suit! Excellent witness mode it is!
‘Good Samaritan’ (GS) didn’t know those facts whatsoever as reports state as BG was running away from initial LE contact towards GS.That would be correct but the police officer was already shot 4 times and bad guy was still Shooting .
So somebody had to step in.
How exactly Do you know what the guy knew or saw?CCW
‘Good Samaritan’ (GS) didn’t know those facts whatsoever as reports state as BG was running away from initial LE contact towards GS.
If proven GS shot BG, will be interesting to see the judicial proceeding unfold as it will be difficult defense to prove GS’ life was in danger, or that he had knowledge what BG was doing!
There are too many times when JQCitizen steps in with good intentions but then suffers grave bodily injury or death with the ensuing catastrophic consequences on the family’s infrastructure & revenue flow! There is no LE union to step in for JQCitizen and their family who operates under the kneejerk mentality of ‘somebody had to step in!’
So my step dad was a retired police officer in California.he always carried a gun.How exactly Do you know what the guy knew or saw?
Like I said in the OP, it could have gone south in a hurry, but as a decent human being, I don't know how you could sit and watch two cops be murdered and do nothing. Unless I had the family in the car, then I would never do anything to draw gunfire in their direction.
