The Coach’s Team re-posted the following article verbatim from the Second City Cop, August 4th 2017, a nationally recognized website written by cops, for cops in the City of Chicago.

Roshad McIntosh died after being shot by a Chicago police officer on Aug. 24, 2014, near Polk Street and California Avenue in Lawndale.
Police said McIntosh was part of a group being questioned by police at the intersection when he tried to flee. He pulled a gun and was shot, and that the gun was recovered at the scene, police said.
However, witnesses told McIntosh's family that he was not armed and was kneeling on the ground with his hands in the air when he was shot. Protesters compared McIntosh's death to the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., a few weeks before.

Roshad McIntosh was a piece of shit with a record a mile long, with countless dope cases, a number of crimes of violence and more than a couple gun charges. He was a member of one of the more particularly violent gangs littering the west side and certainly isn't a loss to society. Now the involved coppers are going to face a couple years of hell as the politicos and their appointed assholes dig around looking for some bullshit to hang their hats on after being cleared years ago by multiple investigations.
There is no point in proactively patrolling the ghetto.
