Police Officer Killed While Executing Search Warrant

 

Veteran Chicago Police Officer Nathaniel Taylor Jr. was killed on Sunday when he was struck by a felon's bullet during a search warrant of a suspected drug offender's home.

While police waited outside of the home for the suspect to come out, which is typically safer than approaching the home, the suspect drove up in a vehicle. Officer Taylor announced that they were the police and the suspect fired upon him.

Officers on the scene returned fire, leaving the suspect, Lamar Cooper, 37, in critical condition at a local hospital. Drugs, weapons and a bulletproof vest were located inside of the suspect's home, which was equipped with six security cameras.

  Whata freakin Jackass  
 
As long as he's in the hospital they should save everybody a lot of time and trouble and just arrange an accidental overdose. It's not like there'd be anyone who cared enough about him to sue.

  Surprising there was anything left of him...  
 
He was fired upon by more than one officer. I think they should keep him alive long enough to serve him the death penalty to the fullest.

"Having several security cameras on the home didn't surprise him, Rhodes said. "This used to be a nice neighborhood, and now it's a bad neighborhood," Rhodes said."
DUH. It's because of people like your nice neighbor.

  Unusual activity  
 
From the source: 'Neighbors said police asked them about whether they noticed unusual activity at Cooper's home. "The police said 'he has a lot of cameras,'" '

Dealing drugs, having druggies as friends, smell of pot = suspicious activity

Having cameras in a bad neighborhood = common sense.
