[Full Videos] Chicago Police Caught Celebrating After Murder of Paul O’Neal-Officers Names Not Released
[dropcap]O[/dropcap]n Friday, three Chicago Police officers opened fire on Paul O’Neal, 18, as he fled July 28 in a reportedly stolen Jaguar and then on foot. O’Neal was black and unarmed.
Although the footage doesn’t capture the exact shooting of O’Neal, it does show damning comments made by officers who were unaware, before they fired shots at an unarmed Paul O’Oneal, if he in fact were shooting at them.
Body cam videos also show the seconds after an officer fatally shot O’Neal in his back being handcuffed with limp arms as he already appears to have died. (See Videos Below)
The Police Department has also declined to name the officers, citing a union contract clause that prevents identifying officers who have pending disciplinary matters but haven’t been criminally charged. The department has yet to fulfill an open-records request from the Tribune for reports from the case, the Chicago Tribune reports.
