    Video from Chicago shooting of unarmed man released 01:38

    (CNN)Chicago officers are seen firing at least 15 shots at a black Jaguar as it races down a tree-lined street. The car crashes. The driver bolts. Officers chase him down a driveway between brick houses and over wooden fences. Then multiple shots are heard.
    "Get down! Hands behind your back! You shot at us, mother------!"


    Moments later, officers curse at 18-year-old Paul O'Neal as they put him in handcuffs as he lies face down. Hands behind his back, his arms appear limp. The back of his shirt is covered in blood. An officer holds his foot on O'Neal's leg. Another holds down the mortally wounded man's head.
    The actual shooting, which occurred on July 28, isn't seen in the footage because the officer's body camera didn't record the moment he opened fire. However, police say the officer who shot O'Neal in the back violated policy. The teen, police learned, was not armed.

    Whatever happened to the idea of police wounding suspects... hitting them in the leg, arm, etc.?

    The way they explained it today, is that its against their rules of engagement, for fear an innocent by-stander may get hit. They shot at Paul's car, a no-no; unless the vehicle was being used as weapon, and in this case, the video doesn't show that, so, it was a bad-shoot.

    I'm sure there are many qualified AAs. But, I'm not so sure that there are many AAs who WANT to be police officers.

    Don't believe the hype:

    No need to hire ex cons with arrest records, these days!

    As regards white police attitudes:

    It's less about the dough, more about the power!!
