Chicago's interim police superintendent said Tuesday that the fatal shooting of a man on the West Side as he ran from police officers appeared to be justified, saying an officer fired at him after he pointed a handgun at them.
Starks said he was on the scene when the crowd gathered Monday night, and his reaction was "a little dismay and also an understanding of how sometimes a community is frustrated when maybe the wrong information gets out and they are not privy to all the facts of an investigation."
The acting Superintendent acted like a Superintendent. He put the story out there as it happened and "diplomatically" put the blame of misinformation where it belonged, in the community.
I think some out there, myself included, would of expected the acting supe to throw the coppers under the bus.
This is by no means an endorsement of Dana
We are just glad we didn't have images of Dana hugging a minister and then stating that those involved will be disciplined.
