2 Police Videos Show Violent Struggle After Female Chicago Police Officer Decides Not to Shoot a feral "UNARMED NEGRO"
Watch as Taser proves ineffective and 2 police officers are joined by others in subduing a combative man. One officer was hospitalized.
CHICAGO, IL — Two videos released by Chicago Police Friday show the ordeal endured by an officer who decided not to shoot a violent man who took her to the ground and battered her and her partner as they fought to subdue him on Oct. 5.
The officer, who remains hospitalized, told the police superintendent she did not fire on the man because she wanted to spare herself, her family and the department the scrutiny that would ensue if she had. Instead, she and her partner battled with the man on a West Side street. Only after several officers responding to their distress call joined the struggle did police manage to subdue the man.
Later, police would learn that Parta Huff, 28, of Maywood, was high on PCP, according to prosecutors. Huff is accused of slamming the officer's head into the pavement near the corner of Roosevelt Road and Cicero Avenue. He's charged with attempted murder of a police officer and aggravated battery of a police officer.
