In Chicago on May 16, Shotspotter heard gunfire. The cops saw a man walking down the street carrying a handgun. Two officers walked behind him for several minutes calling to him to drop the gun.

Then another patrol car arrived in front of the walker. Then this happened:

You can see all the bodycam video here.

The shooter’s name is Bruce Lua, 45.

He may not be black, so he’s unlikely to become another BLM martyr.

  1. Choosing to work for the Chicago PD is like volunteering for AIDS infections.

  2. Chicago cops can not longer perform foot pursuits for anything less than a Class A Misdemeanor or engage in car chases. Sadly, some people will watch the video and say…’Good the cops were shot, too bad they weren’t killed.’ Maybe even mayor lightfoot, she is that demented. And, Second City Cop is writing articles at the Chicago Contrarian website. I miss those guys.

    When I first read about this, I looked up this guy’s Instagram. His final video only has about 300 views, but it tells the whole story–schitzo Mexican engaged in some kind of Santeria-bible inspired war against evil.

  5. Insufficient use of force. The cops should never have been shot. They were so inhibited about shooting the perp, due to the War on White Policemen, that they kept giving him more opportunities.

    More and more White cops are being wounded or killed, because of their justifiable fear of being railroaded by racist prosecutors and media monsters.

    Stuffs getting wild out there.

    Here is a video showing a guy who stole a police car and then after being pitted into the woods, evades a dozen cops and steals a C9 car with a couple of guns.

    Should the guy holding the door open have shot the guy before he got off in the second car? Hard decision, the road ahead of him was empty but he did gain access to guns.

    And a few months ago, guy shoots off on several NYPD at the bottom of a stairwell. Amazingly nobody, including the suspect was shot, though two police suffered bullet grazes.

    @Nicholas Stix

    I don’t disagree, but if you are constrained in use of force, then you have to practice proper defensive tactics to minimize risks. I don’t want to second guess the officers as I wasn’t there, but I don’t understand why that one officer who exited the white patrol car approached an armed suspect and closed the distance, instead of seeking cover behind the vehicle and ordering the suspect to drop his weapon. Yes, a handgun is a projectile weapon, but the vast majority of people don’t make hits beyond contact distance and that officer made it easier for the suspect to make hits on him.

    “Show me your hands” is not always the best challenge. The vid makes that clear. Because “here’s a hand now!” is one possible response. There are other challenges, to be sure. “Get on the ground, now!” is one, “hands over your head” is another. This guy was determined to fight someone, though.

    Walking towards the suspect is probably something that seemed reasonable at the time, but inside of the 7 yards / 7 meters distance a violent criminal actor doesn’t have to be a good shot, just a bit lucky.

    To the marksman, distance is a friend.

    Does the Chicago PD have patrol rifles? Given the outdoor ‘man-with-gun’ nature of this encounter and the range involved, an AR style carbine with a low-mag optic should have been part of the mix.

  17. Since the advent of AC opening up the South, no one really wants to live in Chicago anymore. It’s just there, because … it was there. (Since railroads took over from steamships.)

    (Note: i lived there through the winter of ’78-79. Couldn’t move my car–parked on a sidestreet–for about three weeks. I can think of about 100 other cites, West, South, NE, Midwest that i’d rather live in/would advise for a young person starting out.)

    @Jonathan Mason

    A dumb response by someone who knows nothing of weapons but an infantile fear of them.

    Manufacturers do not sell to individuals in the US. They sell to Federally and State Licensed gun dealers. who then sell to individuals after background checks. Federal checks are mandatory, take a few minutes to an hour. State checks on top of that can take anywhere from a few minutes to 10 days in California. Ownership of guns is highly regulated in the US, as is the industry.

    Criminals get their guns from:
    A. Stolen guns often from police and feds. Example, the gun used to kill the nice White lady in San Francisco by the illegal alien was stolen from an FBI agent’s car.
    B. Illegal gun imports over the border with drugs and trafficked human beings. Open borders = guns for criminals.
    C. Straw purchases by friends/family — the smallest contingent but it does happen.

    None of this has anything to do with manufacturers selling to individuals again that comment was so factually wrong its astonishing in its stupidity. There is no zero none nada ZILCH possibility of doing anything about the border which is now pretty much 100% controlled by various cartels. So any criminal who wants one can get one from the cartels. Or a nine year old girl. Or the illegal alien slave labor force used to create the massive Antelope Valley Marijuana grow houses.

    So the real issues is, are ordinary people helpless and disarmed and easy prey for criminals like in the UK, as their police side with the criminals, or can they fight back. Pretty much everyone in America who could went out and bought a gun in the last few years so there’s your answer.

    “how quickly an armed confrontation can go south”

    It’s impressive to me that police officers have the great psychomotor adroitness they do, given that they go to the practice range only 2 or 3 times a year. Maybe they have laser trainers and targets for non-range practice; I would certainly do that if I had to be a police officer in Chicago.

    As “drop it, man” was clearly not the magic phrase, I find myself wondering, what IS the magic phrase? For Clint Eastwood, it would be “Do you feel lucky, punk? Make my day.” But what would a social worker recommend?

    Here’s a passage from that article that illustrates what a piece of garbage Mayor Lightfoot (AKA Groot) is:

    Lightfoot’s security blanket

    And finally, with manpower down 18 percent across the board, retirements through the roof, resignations at record levels and no one take the entrance exam, Groot decides to take fifty-six officers, two sergeants and a lieutenant (mostly from the already shorthanded Districts) and assign them to….her house. That’s most of a Watch, now assigned to Groot. That means (once again) if you want a day off to relax, recover and maybe make some sort of family plans after three weeks of 12-hour days (and more to come), too darn bad.

    Chicago criminals have more access to stolen guns than most criminals. For more than a century Chicago was designed to be the center of the railroad system of the entire country. Still is. Railroad freight cars arrive in Chicago and are assembled into trains going all over the country.

    The freight cars spend a day or two in the miles and miles of of freight yards in Chicago before being attached to a new train and leaving.
    Criminals have been looting the freight cars since the 1850s. Some of the freight cars carry guns.

    Americans know that criminals cannot buy guns from licensed gun dealers. They buy their guns from other criminals. They buy guns stolen from gun shops, warehouses the Chicago freight yards and from cars homes businesses during burglaries.

    Chicago criminals use stolen guns. Why buy a gun when you can steal it or buy it half price from another thief?

    Puts everyone in great peril civilians and Patrol Officers, a like. What happened the 2 officers shot were very lucky. The next time maybe not so. The perp appears disturbed in a way a person suffering from paranoid schizoprenia do. He needs treament for his arm wound and stabilization under medication in a psych ER then to a prison center for futhur long term medication. He should never be allowed upon the streets in that condition again.
    The CPD are very brave men and woman trying their best to protect the wards under the most trying and difficult situations. The worst thing about Chicago are that pistols are allover the place and probably the majority are not registered or liscensed.

    Rifles in Chicago I don’t know, but pistol caliber carbines should increase accuracy without tremendously increasing range and penetration. In fact it ought to be possible to allow a cop to quickly biggie-size his current sidearm (with which he is most familiar) with a rapidly-attachable stock (although not a “universal” one, it wouldn’t be too hard to customize). It might be possible to extend the barrel and have the pistol “sit” in a stock and barrel assembly. A cop could carry the pistol on his hip and have the attachable stock assembly near his seat in the patrol car.

    A. Stolen guns often from police and feds. Example, the gun used to kill the nice White lady in San Francisco by the illegal alien was stolen from an FBI agent’s car.
    B. Illegal gun imports over the border with drugs and trafficked human beings. Open borders = guns for criminals.
    C. Straw purchases by friends/family — the smallest contingent but it does happen.

    A. If a cop allows his gun to be stolen, there should be serious consequences.

    B. You have it backwards. Guns are trafficked over the border from the USA to Mexico.

    C. Actually, it happens a lot more often than you might think. If there is a straw purchase from a friend/relative, and the gun is later identified as being used in a crime, the friend/relative who sold the gun will claim that it was stolen.

    It’s hard to believe the FOP is tolerating that. That’s standard Wage and Hour law. Although, nothing surprises me anymore.

    Suicide by cop attempt seems very possible to me. Why the lack of response to the police officers shouts? A hearing defect from deafness? Wearing headphones? Or taking the cops well away from areas covered by security cameras and look for the chance to exchange gunfire?

    Bypass lines around the city, built in the late 19th century, but little used in the 2nd half of the 20th, lately have been used more. Still a lot of rail traffic, overwhelmingly container, tank car, or grain or coal hopper car, moves very slowly through the city, sometimes parked on embankments, and often parked in intermodal (container) yards. There have been thefts of guns from the containers reported recently.

    Ten years ago I would have agreed with you. I’ve been living on the Northside for several decades and I can see it has gotten more vibrant over the past five years or so. Restaurants, bars, and apartment buildings have gotten more colorful. I no longer feel safe walking around Northside neighborhoods.

    “The shooting of a 6-year-old Pittsburgh girl sparked a fight between two sides of her family at the hospital where she was being treated, spurring another shooting that left two men wounded and a third facing charges. The brawl in front of UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh on Thursday night involved at least 30 people, Pittsburgh police said.

    The 1917 Artillery Model Luger had an attachable shoulder stock that doubled as a holster and an optional 32 round “snail” magazine.

    The idea never really caught on. By the time you finish assembling something like that you could easily have grabbed an AR-15, a Mini-14 or a 12 gauge shotgun. Pistol caliber carbines never made much sense to me; power and range of a pistol, bulk and weight of a carbine. Jeff Cooper once wrote: “If you know you are going into a shooting situation, you have loaded shotgun in your hands, not a pistol in your holster.”

    This is a developing story. Please return to read more.

    Editor’s note: Police have only released a vague description of the suspected shooter as of Saturday morning. The Austin American-Statesman is not including the description as it is too vague at this time to be useful in identifying the shooter and such publication could be harmful in perpetuating stereotypes. If more detailed information is released, we will update our reporting.

    Chacon could only share a vague description of one suspect at this time. He said the man may be a Black man with a “skinny” build and locs-style hair. A motive for the shooting is not yet known.

    Austin, Texas’s popular 6th Street entertainment district was the scene of a mass shooting early Saturday morning. Police reported that 13 people were injured and said the suspected shooter was not in custody.

    Two of the injured were in critical condition, interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said.

    The shooting happened around 1:30 AM. along 6th Street, which has many bars, restaurants and nightclubs in a city that bills itself as the live music capital. The street was barricaded to keep out vehicle traffic.

    The worst thing about Chicago are that pistols are allover the place and probably the majority are not registered or liscensed.

    So the pistols are wandering Chicago by themselves, causing “shots to ring out” and “violence to erupt”?

    The worst thing about Chicago are the feral humans with low IQ’s and no impulse control. Take away their stolen guns and they’d use fists, feet, clubs, shovels, chains, and machetes. Just like their cousins in Rwanda.

    Thank goodness the hated Chicago GUN REGISTRATION is GONE!!! It was removed when an Asian Federal judge called BULLSHIT on IL’s lack of legally carrying and led to IL creating new gun laws.

    IL acquired GUN OWNER LICENSING when the IL State Rifle Association proposed this back in 1968 in an attempt to ward off ever MORE gun control. As the decades rolled by, the Gun Controllers continuous added MORE gun control laws.

    People have been denied their Second Amendment GUN RIGHTS for nearly a year because the State of Illinois does NOT care about the Bill of Rights, only what the cosmopolitans care about – MORE GUN CONTROL.

    When they actually start enforcing the law against negros and antifa like they do white people, I might be inclined to respect them a little.

    I live on the near north side and walk everywhere. It doesn’t seem bad to me yet but the press reports of car jackings in Lincoln Park and other wealthy areas are disturbing. The biggest change I think is the States Attorney, Kim Foxx, who lets many criminals off the hook.

    I think it would be fairly easy to solve the crime problem. If you get caught with an illegal gun (which they all are), you get put in solitary confinement in a lock up in some remote small town for a year. If you do it again when you get out, you get two years. Punishment needs to be more punitive.

    The black aldermen complain about the crime, but they won’t tolerate putting more young blacks in jail so they block the fixes.

    Those car jacking reports are real and are mostly committed by armed black juveniles. The Cook County States Attorney is letting attempted murderers and armed robbers go free with little or no bail. Kim Foxx won in an overwhelming election against an old white former judge who ran on a law and order platform. The cucked voters of Chicago are getting it good and hard.

    Since I first saw this I wondered why they didn’t have a car come around and close on this clown from the other direction.

    Then you should watch it again, because the two cops who were shot were precsely the two who closed on him in a car from the other direction.
