Video was released today by the Chicago Police Department that shows a police officer being brutally beaten by a suspect on PCP.
Chicago Superintendent Eddie Johnson visited the female officer in the hospital and said that officers are second guessing themselves and not using enough force during encounters with suspects because of the fear of backlash.
The suspect smashed the officer’s face into the pavement repeatedly until she was unconscious.
“As I was at the hospital last night, visiting with her, she looked at me and said she thought she was gonna die, and she knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to because she didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” Johnson said while attending a public ceremony honoring heroic officers and firefighters.
Dubbed “The Tulsa Effect“, Johnson discussed the incident that occurred to the 17-year Chicago police veteran last Wednesday.
