ELGIN, IL POLICE SHOOTING: Prisoner shot by Elgin police after allegedly trying to escape from squad car


Elgin police shot a prisoner trying to escape from a patrol car as he was being driven to a Rolling Meadows courthouse Saturday morning, authorities said.

Elgin Police Cmdr. Glenn Theriault said the man had been arrested Friday on warrants of resisting arrest and fleeing and eluding police. After being held overnight in the city jail, an officer had put him into a police car Saturday morning to drive him to a bond court hearing at the Cook County Courthouse in Rolling Meadows.

Theriault said the car was traveling along Route 53 near Algonquin Road when the prisoner kicked out one of the car’s windows and then escaped from the car. The officer then shot him.

The prisoner was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. The man’s identity and condition has not been released, but Theriault said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

He said the officer, whose name also was not released, was taken to a hospital to be examined but did not appear to be injured.

Tennessee v Garner

I Voted For Obama said...

May I please be serious for one moment here:

Tennessee v. Garner was about a non-violent burglar fleeing a property crime scene. This is a man charged with violence using violence to escape custody.

World of difference.

OK--back to stupid Obama comments.

This guy must have heard that if he was going to miss the primary on Tuesday, so he had to get out of the squad car so that he could vote for Obama and his minions.
