A Chicago cop was arrested Friday morning at the police department’s training academy and charged with brandishing a gun during a dispute with a neighbor earlier this year.
Raekwon Livingston, a 24-year-old probationary officer, was taken into custody at the police academy at 1300 W. Jackson Blvd. on the Near West Side. He was charged with a misdemeanor count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to a police spokesperson and an alert from the department.
Livingston was charged in connection to an incident Aug. 27 in the 1100 block of North Howe Street, where he lives, according to the spokesperson. A source said Livingston got into an argument with a neighbor who was walking a dog and pulled out a gun several times.
Denisse Balseca, a Chicago probationary officer, was arrested early on Aug. 20 after she allegedly attacked a Schiller Park cop during a traffic stop in the northwest suburb.
Balseca was stopped in the 4100 block of West Grace Street when officers saw her drive onto a curb twice, according to an arrest report. She and her passenger were “highly uncooperative” and had “bloodshot and glassy eyes,” the report stated.
Police found an open can of alcohol in the car and marijuana in her passenger’s purse, the report states. Balseca repeatedly failed to hand over her driver’s license and proof of insurance, according to the report. After being pulled from the car and handcuffed, she “pushed, struck, scratched and kicked” an officer “in an attempt to defeat the arrest,” according to the report.
In perhaps the strangest case, a 27-year-old probationary officer was fired just days after she was wounded in an apparent road rage shooting Sept. 20. She was shot in her face near Elston Avenue and Addison Street during a dispute that continued over blocks.
Law enforcement sources said she had failed a drug test three days before the shooting and was quickly stripped of her police powers. A source confirmed that she was fired after being wounded in the attack.

In a statement on social media, South Vermillion Community School Corporation said the deputy was going over drills with the students when he drew his service weapon instead of his training weapon and fired it. The student’s injuries were described as not life-threatening.

They use dummy guns, plastic guns, in this situation. It was a mistake that was made on behalf of the sheriff deputy,” Superintendent of South Vermillion Schools, Dave Chapman, told WCCU. “(it’s an) unfortunate incident, but they’ve gone through this training quite frequently, so it was just one of those unfortunate incidents.”
So this 19 year cop veteran can't tell the difference between a plastic dummy gun and a real glock?? Aren't the dummy guns a solid blue color or something?

Police are a joke with gun handling. Can't tell their heads from their asses.

An off-duty Vermont sheriff’s deputy was shot by cops in Saratoga Spring, N.Y. after exchanging fire with a group of men early Sunday, police said.
The deputy was shot multiple times after he ignored officers’ demands to drop his gun.
“By my count, there are at least eight separate, clear, unequivocal commands to put the gun down and get on the ground,” Saratoga Springs Public Safety Commissioner James Montagnino said at the press conference. “They are all ignored.” He suffered 10 bullet wounds, though police said it was unclear if he had been shot 10 times since the injuries include both entry and exit wounds. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and is listed in stable condition

“Detectives learned Edwards had worked for Virginia State Police until recently becoming part of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Virginia State Police confirm Edwards graduated the academy in January of 2022, and became a trooper assigned to Henrico County. He then resigned from VSP in late October, according to officials.”

So much for multiple background checks and psych screens in identifying potential mass killers…

He graduated the State Police academy and served for just 10 months before resigning to work as a sheriff's deputy?

LMAO, VSP had a case on him and knew he was bad. He was "allowed" (strongly encouraged) to seek employment elsewhere, so that VSP didn't have to sully their reputation by association with him.

That's not a case of talking yourself into an arrest - they already decided they were arresting him when they pulled him over. could be any one of us. So be it that's me, I'll bankrupt the goddamn jurisdiction that does it.
Your attorney will explain that "Yeah, you blew .00, but the state can still admin testimony of the officer that you were impaired on something, as well as his certification as a drug recognition expert. Juries can be very deferential to policy authority, and you stand a chance of conviction. You can refresh my retainer by another $5000 and go to trial or take the CWOF that will remove any chance you will become a federally prohibited person for life. The DA will not drop the case unless the state is insulated from civil action. What is your move?".

Remember the case of the Ohio driver arrested by an unhinged cop for "non-notification of legal carry" (required in that state) even when the video shows him handing the cop his CCW and driving license, and to cop responding "What's this?" and handing the CCW back? The state still took that to trial, and the driver was acquitted at his own expense.

Defendants often start out "I am innocent, I will not cop a plea". The most recent one was a dissident present at the so-called insurrection who claimed the capitol police even held the door for her, and she was not going to copy a plea. Many months later that person is telling others how great it was go get a misdemeanor deal that avoided PP status.

It's just a form of elephant some have to face - and everybody thinks, but does not know for certain, how they will respond when they are in the frying pan.

f*** them. Go to court. The cost of a lawyer is small compared to the lifetime cost of that conviction.
Agreed - my point was what if you have to choose between talking a deal to avoid the risk, however, small, of a bogus conviction vs. preserving your right to civil litigation?
