Michelle white is an idiot. They try to run over the cop. He should have blown his head clean off. Black or white if your a acumen bag u get what u deserve. If I was a cop i would shoot first and ask later.... Good job cook county sheriffs. Keep shooting these dirt bags

Great Job to the cops! The police aren't shooting down black men they are shooting down criminals that have just committed a crime and are trying to hurt the police-news flash these cops all have families they want to go home to and they are going to try their best not to let anybody including these no good criminals come between that! Why weren't these "wonderful contributing members to society" at work being that they were all men in their 30's? Oh thats right come on make up another excuse Michelle White tell me it's someones else's fault that they are dealing drugs rather than working at an establishment of some sort. We all have decisions to make in life, nobody is forced into a life of crime! I feel that is part of the problem in the black community rather than saying "hey he got shot because he was committing a crime trying to run from the cops and tried to kill one with his car"( who doesn't deserve to get shot for doing that?).You guys would rather tell your youth they are targeted, How about tell them be a great CONTRIBUTING member to society and they won't be messed with like the rest of the population does!

Oh yeah and Michelle White this guy was scheduled to surrender and serve a 5 year prison sentence at the time of his death..his record before this, I will only state the charges and nothing he was convicted on..
1. 1991 felony possession of a controlled substance.
2. 2001 2 counts of murder, 1 charge of attempted murder 2 counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm.
3. 2003 resisting arrest
4. 2008 aggravated assault
5. 2009 unlawful possession of a substance and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

I think the charges speak for themselves. The police don't shoot people for the hell of it it is obvious this man was out to hurt and possibly kill anyone he could. Stop making excuses for these people!!

Its a shame that we as people do not do the neccesary homework before we form an opinion. How about trying to figure out what led this man to being a criminal and being part of the solution, not the problem. If we become part of the solution perhaps we can help a young black, white, person. A policeman job is to serve and protect. If this guy would have ran over you and no police were around how would your family feel. This guy tried to run over a cop. Should the cop just stand there and die or protect himself and others around around him. The cop was justified in his actions and for those who think otherwise I feel sorry 4u. Keep protecting our streets officer.

the police were justified In the shooting and everything that led to it, I love how people pull the "race" card when there is a police involved incident when someone of color does stupid shit...the police are there to protect and serve! No matter what race you are. The CCSP did the right thing by getting the "bad guys". End of story

That's the problem when residents of bad neighborhoods on the south side of Chicago complain that the cops don't do enough. But as soon as the cops shoot someone, those same people cry about them "shooting my baby" and how "he wasn't involved in no gangs". You can't have it both ways -- either you want the cops to exercise their judgement in moments of life and death, or you just gotta stop asking the cops to help you at all and just live with it.

Dummy? Ah yes I see your level of education and maturity! Your right it is unlawful to shoot first and ask questions later BUT when a man is behind the wheel of a vehicle and trying to hit/possibly kill the police who are telling him to stop you bet your ass those cops have every right to shoot him to protect themselves-That is not unlawful!!!!

What rock have you been under? Law enforcement does require self discipline, rules and procedures and its clear they had followed all before they shot him.
