Illinois Officers On Leave After Doughnut Shop Killing
Courtney Greve
Chicago Sun Times



Two Midlothian police officers went on paid leave Monday as State Police began investigating the officers' decision to gun down an alleged robber who climbed through a doughnut shop's drive-up window and pistol-whipped an employee.

Bobby Pounds of Dixmoor repeatedly used his gun to beat the employee's head and face about 11:15 p.m. on Sunday at the Dunkin' Donuts at 14631 S. Pulaski, police said.

When Pounds, who turned 21 the same day he was killed, spotted the Midlothian officers who had been flagged down by another Dunkin' Donuts worker, Pounds allegedly pointed the gun at them. The officers then opened fire, shattering two windows and a door.

'THEY SAVED HIS LIFE'

African-American ministers and Pounds' family raised questions Monday about whether deadly force was needed, noting Pounds' 6-foot, 140-pound frame.

But Midlothian Detective Sgt. Harold Kaufman said he is "very, very confident" the officers acted appropriately based his review of security-video footage. The Dunkin Doughnuts employee received 19 staples and nine stitches before he was released Monday from St. Francis Hospital in Blue Island, police said.

"The officers were at the right place at the right time," Kaufman said. "I honestly feel, from the beating [the victim] took, they saved his life by being there."

FAMILY WANTS ANSWERS

The two officers, whom officials refused to identify, are on paid leave while the Illinois State Police public integrity unit investigates the incident.

More than 20 of Pounds' family members gathered Monday at Midwest Memorial Chapel in Harvey to make funeral arrangements and challenge police to provide answers. Pounds' survivors include two sons, Ryan, 4, and Justin, 17 months.

"We're not here today to argue innocence or guilt," said the Rev. Lance Davis of New Zion Christian Fellowship in Dolton. "We're here to raise questions as to the amount of force used to murder an individual and to stop the open season on young African-American men in the community."

Who cares how big he was, the bullet that could have potentially come out of the muzzle of that gun kills the same regardless of the size of its user.
I call good shoot, based on the info given.

Pistol whip someone and them aim your gun toward police and the question whether deadly force was justified????

Get a clue, doesn't matter if he was 7' tall and 88 lbs.

I don't care if he was a 3 foot eskimo, it was a clean shoot.

Just because he's skinny and not caucasian doesn't make him any less of a criminal.

As I have posted before, "the police aren't always right, but they are predictable".

Situation: Subject threatens deadly force against a police officer or other person (in a police officer's presence)

Prediction: Police will use deadly force to protect themselves or others.
Link Posted: 12/21/2005 3:08:24 PM EDT
WTF? There was no reason to shoot him, none at all.

They could have just given him the couple bucks from the register and let him go on his way. He's a good kid, just very poor. We should let him tough some money, for the first time, just let him touch it.

Gee, maybe the "rev" SHOULD question if mr pound DID pound on the face of an employee with a gun, then point it at the cops. He's as much a "rev" as I am a billionaire. More like the pastor of PUTZ. DOLTon sounds like a good place for bro "rev".

Good shoot. Those officers deserve free donuts for life! If the perp had been white, I doubt that Reverand would be making a big issue out of it. Yeah, like his height/weight has anything to do with the price of tea in China. You pistol whip somebody and then point a gun at police officers, rational folks would expect the perp to get shot. Heck, just pistol whipping the employee and not stopping after lawful order to stop would of been a good shoot too. Rational folks wouldn't want police officers to go hand-to-hand with a pistol-whipping fool.

Edited to add...

If that was sarcasm it was in bad taste.

If you were serious then... Go back to the DU ya damn troll. So you're actually saying that if you live below the poverty level you have the right to pistol whip someone to death for a few bucks? My mom was held at gunpoint and then punched in the face by some shitbag back in the 80's when she worked at a Ramada Inn. All for a few bucks. Just as easily could have been her. Two big words for you pal....

Have mommy there next to whoever is playing the cop when her "son" points a handgun at them during the commission of an ARMED ROBBERY.

Let's see how they feel after being put in the place of the REAL victims of this scumbag's violent assault.

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=46143

"You know, some people are stealing and they're making a big deal out of it," Dion said on CNN's "Larry King Live," as she said she'd donate $1 million toward relief.

"Oh, they're stealing 20 pair of jeans or they're stealing television sets. Who cares? They're not going to go too far with it. Maybe those people are so poor, some of the people who do that they're so poor they've never touched anything in their lives. Let them touch those things for once."

I can't think of a cleaner shoot than firing at someone who was in the act of bashing an unarmed victim in the head with a pistol and then turned the gun on two cops who responded.

This guy's race has nothing to do with anything. Do these protestors think that the officers would not have shot at someone of any other race in the same situation?

They should call it, "open season on people who point guys at the police when the police try to stop them from beating someone to death".

here they go pulling the @#$%ing race card, I swear, this happens everytime. I'm not saying that they aren't right sometimes, but I think it is used way too much. If any bastard points a gun at an armed officer, they can expect to get shot. This is bullshit, if they didn't even say what color he was, no one would have said anything, but since he's black, the media seems to have a field day with it.

Even if this turd did not point the pistol at the police, they would be completely justified in their actions. He caused bodily harm to the real victim with a deadly weapon while in the commision of another forcible felony (Agg. armed robbery/Agg. battery w/Deadly weapon), was in possesion of a firearm and in a enclosed area with a potential hostage.

Dolton used to be a very nice suburb of Chicago until savages like the offender and the rest of his kin destroyed the town.

Looks like open season on scumbags. Or as they call them in California, "Open season on a kind and loveable black king who was struck down in the prime of life by the man."

It amazes me that not a single member of the "black community" in any of these places has a shred of concern for the victim of a crime. I have yet to hear Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton say a single kind word about someone who was attacked and robbed, raped or killed by one of their "heros".
