Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Stay safe out there.
Yeah. Yeah. We know what it looks like. 🤷♂️
Commander Paul Bauer was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a subject who had just fled from other officers.
Other officers had attempted to conduct a subject stop on the man in connection with a shooting that had occurred several days earlier. The subject fled from the officers. Commander Bauer, who was wearing a suit and in the area for a meeting, observed the subject and attempted to stop him in a stairwell. The subject opened fire, killing Commander Bauer.
The subject was taken into custody moments later.
Commander Bauer had served with the Chicago Police Department for 32 years and served as commander of the 018th District. He is survived by his wife and daughter. RIP

This video has been circulating around. It has a chilling, yet powerful meaning behind it. It was shared from @gruntstyle
“If we learn nothing else from this senseless tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
Police Officer Anthony Morelli and Police Officer Eric Joering were shot and killed when they responded to a 911 hangup call in the 300 block of Crosswind Drive.
As officers arrived at the home they made contact with the residents of the apartment and let inside. As they walked into the apartment a male subject opened fire on them, mortally wounding Officer Joering and Officer Morelli. Despite their wounds, both officers were able to return fire and wounded the subject.
Officer Morelli was transported to a local hospital where he died a short time later.
The subject was charged with two counts of capital murder of a law enforcement officer.
Don’t forget to thank a police officer!
Merry Christmas, be safe out there!
