This animal..........

was in this neighborhood,

and some residents are questioning the use of force used by the police.

Well at least we have the support of the superintendent.
"There's no doubt that lives were saved as a result of his actions and his fellow officers' attempts to contain the animal away from innocent bystanders," Police Supt. Jody Weis said in a statement.


However, the ramblings of the Mayor were classic....
Mayor Richard Daley also added his support for the police response. .

"First of all, it happened at 5:30 in the afternoon [in] the Roscoe Village community. It was seen running between buildings. The cougar charged a police officer," he said in remarks at an unrelated event.

Daley noted that a principal at an elementary school where a day-care program was still active alerted the police of the animal's presence in a school parking lot.

"Now, I just want to tell you, if the cougar attacked a child, they'd sue the city because the police officer didn't do their job. So everybody second guesses, you know. So let the cougar run around and attack children. Everybody would be filing lawsuits, and yelling at the police and all the local officials. … Too bad that we didn't have an animal care and control personnel. [They] were en route to the scene. But again you have to make individual decisions. I didn't see a neighbor run out and grab it and say, 'Oh I love you' and bring it in the house. This is unbelievable. I mean, I just, I just. … 'Don't worry about it.' "

He added, "A cougar is a beautiful animal. I mean, it really is."

I'll give him an "A" for effort.
Read the whole story in the Tribune.

It's silly, silly, I mean it's just silly, Cougars silly, running around, kids loose, silly.

I have instructed J-Fed to remove all handguns from the police to prevent this from ever happening again.

If an officer needs a gun, they can request one from my bodyguard detail.

Vote Democratic!

What did the three legged cougar say when he walked into the saloon?


"I'm looking for the man that shot my paw!"

I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, cougar?

It takes big balls to confront a wild lion. I think everyone agrees it sucks that the beautiful cat had to go but better him than me or one of us or even one of the liberal idiots. Well,on second thought,one of the liberal idiots would be okay,lol...

The new lieutents list ought to be thrown out! Not only did we have access to the spontaneous questions, but I know, for a fact, some, people under Peterson & other bosses, had the answers, or at least the answers Peterson wanted. That includes you Mr. Richards!!!

no more testing for lieutenants
submit a resume like the cpd does to promote captains
throw the old test results out

A person with a gun may miss you, run out of bullets, gun jams, retreat, or simply injures you. A cougar, pitbull, and other wild animals, will out run you and kill you.
