Chicago Cop Going to Trial for 2013 Shooting of 2 Teens

(WLS) A Chicago police officer is on trial for firing into a car full of teenagers in 2013 in an incident was captured by a dash cam.

Jury selection began Monday and will likely continue Tuesday. The case is racially-charged as a Latino officer is charged with firing his weapon 16 times into a car full of African American teenagers.

Video from the dash cam in the officers own squad car will likely be the most important piece of evidence prosecutors will present.

Officer Marco Proano, 42, an 11-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, is charged with using unreasonable force and causing bodily injury. He is accused of firing his service revolver 16 times at an allegedly stolen car after a traffic stop on the city’s Far South Side.

The officer reportedly told investigators he feared for his safety as well as the safety of a passenger who is hanging outside the car.

Proano’s attorney, Dan Herbert, also represents Jason Van Dyke, the former Chicago police officer facing first-degree murder charges for the killing of an unarmed African-American teenager, Laquan McDonald.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says there are important lessons to be learned from the incident and he’s following the case closely.

“It’s my duty to give officers due process and not to make rush judgements. So, we’ll wait until it’s done and we’ll move on from there, but as I said before, being a police officer is not easy, it’s a difficult job. Police officers have to make decisions in split seconds,” Supt. Johnson said.

The Independent Police Review Authority ruled Proano’s explanation for the shooting “defied logic” because he is seen firing in the direction of the person in the car he claims to be protecting – and he kept firing even though the car rolled in the other direction before crashing into a pole.

The city has already settled a civil suit with the teenagers who were injured for $360,000. The judge told prospective jurors to be prepared for a trial that could last two weeks.

The Chicago Rippers were a gang of 4 serial killers, Robin Gecht, Andrew Kokoraleis, his brother Thomas and Edward Spreitzer. The strange part is Robin Gecht worked for John Wayne Gacy for a period of time just before Gacy was caught and then he went on to murder 18 women in particularly brutal fashion during 1981 and 1982. They practiced Satanism and Gecht made souvenirs of breasts and other body parts that he kept in a box. They also cannibalized parts of the bodies. Gecht was never convicted of murder, only attempted murder for which he received 120 years. Spreitzer and Andrew Kokoraleis were given the death penalty and Thomas Kokoraleis life. Andrew Kokoraleis was executed in 1999. I believe he was the last man to be executed in the state of Illinois. Spreitzer’s death sentence was commuted to Life and Thomas Kokoraleis is scheduled to be released in 2017.How any state could release this guy is ridiculous. But that’s the gift the state gave him for being the first to confess to 18 brutal torture-murders and mutilations. Robin Gecht still maintains his innocence. Of course he does.

(dna Info) Bloodied man used Facebook Live to broadcast a standoff between himself and a group of people during an apparent attack in Austin.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon in the 5200 block of West Adams Street and involved a screwdriver, officials said. Two women and a man were injured in the incident, said Larry Merritt, a Chicago Fire Department spokesman.

A man streamed the incident and its aftermath in four videos that have quickly spread on Facebook. They have been watched more than 377,000 times.

The first video, which has been shared more than 4,200 times on Facebook, shows a bloodied man carrying something — others in the video call it a knife — while threatening people. The man shows his blood-covered chest and arms on Facebook Live and uses gang slogans and signs in the video.

Other people threaten the man with poles and the man says, “I will come back with 20 n—–. You guys better not be here because I’m a start shooting n——.”

Eventually police arrive and the man records officers as they speak to witnesses. People in the video say the man stabbed two or three women.

In another video, the man points his camera at his face, revealing blood dripping from his nose and chin down to his chest.

The fourth video shows the man in what appears to be a hospital, his neck in a brace, bandages in his nose and cuts along his chest.

Two people were hospitalized at Mount Sinai and Stroger hospitals and their injuries did not appear be to life-threatening, Merritt said.

Chicago Police could not immediately answer questions about the incident Friday.
