    Two armed security guards -- one, an off-duty cop -- are unable to subdue one unarmed man.

    Maybe the guy should have shown some personal responsibility and looked for a Porta-Potty.

    My question is ... how did they find an unarmed person in Chicago?

    Dead guy identified:

    Chicago media still unable, or unwilling, to name the cop who shot and killed an unarmed man -- again.

    So are we going to just start a new one of these every day?

    I am absolutely convinced there is a point to YF's series.

    I have no idea what it is, but I'm certain there is one.

    Well-played, in spite of the oh-so-strict and obviously ineffectual gun laws in that city.

    An unarmed man who is an aggressor in the face of firearms shows truly irrational judgment that creates the real possibility he will take control of one of those firearms. Shooting a guy who was walking or running away, or even just screaming at the security guards, would be a far different thing.

    Are we expecting unarmed men to be killed by off-duty Chicago cops every day?

    Without guns, how will moonlighting cops ever win pointless arguments with homeless guys?
