The body cam footage will prove somebody is lying. As for the guy driving away from the cops and then attempting to murder the cop with his vehicle, if that's true then the guy deserved to get shot.... And BLM will have yet another criminal to push as "a saint who was gunned down by racist cops! "

I would love to get the body cam footage so I can see what exactly happened.

Now charge him without his precious qualified immunity. Cops should ALWAYS be hesitant to open fire.

Your car is 100% a murder weapon. If you try to go forward or in reverse at an officer you will 100% be shot at. Once again another lesson do as you are told and you will LIVE.

Hmm Headline should read Waukegan officer shoots two people and is fired Wasn’t there; didn’t see it Lots of unanswered questions Why the investigation? Where’s bodycam footage? From my perspective and the initial report, most if not all of this could have need avoided during the first police stop but I’m guessin POC in the CHGO area are taught to not respect the law...doesn’t anyone remember what Chris Rock said about obeying the law and Rodney King? You the reader/commenter/troll can agree or disagree all ya want

These articles are nearly useless as a lot of questions are left unanswered. I suppose the only way to get down to the answers is to see the body and dash cam footage. Until then, there's too much speculation going on.

At this point I believe if ANY police officer shoots or even touches anyone black the procedure is to fire them or prosecute them before there an investigation... I’ll wait for the bodycam.. violations of procedures doesn’t necessarily mean that the shooting was not justified

Another murder by police trumps America. Total BS. When are people going to fight back and start holding these police to the letter of the law if you murder someone you ether get life in prison or death penalty. But he or she will whine and cry and say they were scared as it was a scary black couple in the care. I had to murder one and shoot the other person for my protection. TOTAL BS AND NOTHING MORE!!!!!!

This headline is very misleading, it’s not a Chicago officer, it’s a Waukegan IL officer. Don’t tie things to Chicago cops unjustly.

All stats I've seen line up with regional demographics. Cops shoot anyone, any color, when threatened according to the training they get. Occasionally in hindsight something could have been better but usually I see resisting arrest as the number one reason things get out of hand.

Insufficiently trained officer makes mistake in judgment when dealing with someone loaded with mind-altering substances. That'll be an accurate headline a few days from now.

We will wait for the footage, its possible he was fearful and in the heat of the moment tried to flee, OR he could have been trying to hit the officer as I have heard. Not making any judgments until I see the body language and dialog that took place leading up to and during the incident.
