Chicago cop says she feared using gun while being beaten because of possible national media backlash

Chicago cop says she feared using gun while being beaten because of possible national media backlash, by the US ABC.

A Chicago police officer who is hospitalized after she was severely beaten said she was afraid to use her gun because of the scrutiny she would have faced, Supt. Eddie Johnson said. …

Three officers were hospitalized in the incident. One officer who was severely beaten told Supt. Johnson she was afraid for her life and afraid to use lethal force with all of the attention on the police department’s previous actions and fatal incidents.

“She thought she was going to die. She knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to, because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” Supt. Johnson said.

All that anti-cop bias from the media and the left is making cops afraid to even protect themselves? Brilliant.
