[WATCH] Female Officer Hospitalized After Beating; Afraid To Pull Gun Due To Backlash

Chicago police released dash cam and body camera footage of an arrest in which an officer was beaten by a suspect but did not fire her weapon because she feared community backlash.

The Chicago Police Department released two pieces of video from the arrest on Oct. 5. The video shows the incident near Roosevelt and Cicero, including officers struggling with 28-year-old Parta Huff. Huff, police said, was high on PCP and had just crashed his car into a business.

Chicago police Supt. Eddie Johnson said the officer feared for her life and also feared the community backlash if she shot Huff.

“She thought she was going to die. She knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to, because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” Supt. Johnson said.

The video release is part of an ongoing effort from the Chicago Police Department to be more transparent.
