Chicago police have arrested a man who they say pointed a handgun at officers on the city's West Side.
Officers fired shots on the gunman, missing him, but taking him into custody after a brief foot chase at about 10 p.m. Wednesday in the 1100 block of North Keystone Avenue in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood, police said.
Police also recovered a handgun that they believe the man dropped at the scene, police said.
So a man had a pistol, and the Police decided to FIRE their pistols in response? Don't even get me started on the fact that they missed. This is just crappy, irresponsible, dangerous, anti-social, bully behavior by men who assume guns = crime, and fail to realize they are breaking more laws with guns than criminals could hope to get away with. Such is life in the police state.
