Off Duty Chicago Cop - Kickin' ass and taking names
An off-duty police officer shot and wounded two men during an alleged attempted robbery late Wednesday in the Southwest Side’s Ashburn neighborhood.
Two or three men approached an off-duty Chicago Police officer in the 2500 block of West 83rd Street at 11:38 p.m. in an apparent attempted armed robbery. The officer fired his weapon, striking two men, police said. The district where the officer works was not immediately known.
The wounded men were taken in good condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where one was being treated for a gunshot wound to the buttocks and the other for chest wound, police said. Their ages were not immediately available.
The off-duty officer was not injured.
IPRA went to the scene Wednesday night and looked for evidence. Investigators will return Thursday morning to canvass the area for witnesses, Payne said.
A weapon was recovered on the scene, Payne said.
IPRA and Wentworth Area detectives are investigating.

There is a penalty to pay for not having good victim identification skills.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
