Chicago police under fire

Eleven Chicago police officers have been shot at or wounded so far this year as city’s police superintendent warns it is “the most dangerous time to be a police officer,” according to officials and reports.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown was addressing the media after a cop-involved shooting on Monday, when one officer was shot and another was pinned between two vehicles, when he revealed a staggering statistic: 500% more police officers have been shot over the last two years, he said, according to WGN-TV.

“It is the most dangerous time to be the police in this country,” he said, “where offenders are brazen, not only against our residents with these violent crimes, but not hesitant at all to fire upon officers.”
