Video footage shows the terrifying moment a University of Chicago police officer shot and wounded a student after he charged at him with a metal pipe.

University officials said three campus police officers were responding to a report of a burglary just before 10.15pm Wednesday in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, which is located near the school.

Police said when they tracked down the suspect, identified as Charles Thomas, he was smashing car and apartment windows with a long metal pipe.

Thomas ignores the officer's warning and continues walking towards the cop, passing a second police cruiser that has arrived at the scene.

'Stop there. Stop there,' the officer yells.

Thomas is heard on the video screaming profanities at the officer.

'What the f*** do you want?', Thomas yells. 'F*** you. F*** you.'

Thomas then appears to run towards the officer who fires a single shot hitting the student in the shoulder.

Thomas drops to the ground screaming.

'F*** you all. I'll see you in hell.' he yells as officers handcuff him.

Thomas was taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition.

    Example of a good cop, one in the shoulder to disarm. Not 30 bullets cause he had a pipe! Good job cop!

    •   iwantagoodhj247 April 7, 2018

      @ketamine<3 technically... he's NOT a good cop. Cops are trained not to disarm and wound, but to put the threat down permanently. Center mass (so he missed his intended target) and empty the clip (so he pussed out on putting the threat down). Maybe "campus cops" are trained differently than real cops?

        @iwantagoodhj247 I do understand they are trained to hit the center mass, but don't you think there are cops out there that aren't looking to kill everyone they encounter? I do, I think there are officers that will go for arms of legs to disarm or disable the person rather that risk killing them. Now if that guy had a gun not a pipe I'm sure he would have been shot in the chest a few times. Circumstances man.

          @ketamine<3 if there are cops like that, i don't want them in my neighborhood. Even a pipe wielding threat is a threat. LEOs lives could be at stake here, they put their lives on the line for US. I'd prefer the LEO to be around my neighborhood next month instead of the unstable person breaking shit with the pipe. Cuz he will be back, waving a lawsuit and a pipe in your face next time. But hey, your neighborhood is your neighborhood. Enjoy.

        @iwantagoodhj247 I think he's a great cop, he let a mentally disturbed man possibly get help, and maybe get well.

        Cops should evaluate each situation and make good decisions based on that evaluation,not just a generic overreaction firing of 2 dozen shots off for anyone who doesn't comply. When cops fire off 20+ rounds they're e putting themselves in the position of the judge and jury. They're e giving a person the death penalty.

          @happyjack in situations where their lives are at risk and the lives of others are at risk, they're paid to be judge, jury, and executioner. That's why they carry deadly weapons I their hips and are trained extensively to use them.

            @iwantagoodhj247 So are we now criticizing cops who neutralize a potential deadly situation without any loss of life? If the cop does the standard 10-20 shots on this guy, most of them would miss him and be heading towards someone else down the street. The cop didn't panic and let his emotions get the best of him.

            But if the guy had a gun, all bets are off, shoot to kill.

              @happyjack here's a little perspective on what's going on here...i don't give a fuck about anything that's said here, by me or by others. My beliefs are my own. You don't know me and I don't know you so anyone here offended by what anyone else says is feeble minded. "This person on CS posted this today, I'm so mad!" Really? How sad! It's a website of ppl getting their heads chopped off or what you think is a good looking chick has a dick... yeah, I give a fuck what anyone says or thinks of me here! Any clown who's offended here needs to grow the fuck up.

              So no, I'm not criticizing anything. Cop wants a future problem back out on the streets who knows when? What the fuck do I care? Ppl here want to pat him on the back for being whatever? What the fuck do I care?

              Look at the content of the site and then evaluate whether you should give a shit about what anyone here has to say. Sheesh.

          @happyjack The point being he is a threat to the cops and to the public the chance that he can get away or get a lucky shot in and kill someone is not a risk that should be taken with a clear and present danger. Its nice to think in the idea world we can kneecap lesser threats but a sure shot reduces extra casualties.

      @dougtanner You mean step in range of his weapon? Tackle a clearly violent man with a unknown number of weapons? A short kitchen knife is just a deadly as a gun at close quarters and a bullet proof vest offers very little protection from edged weapons. Once entangled the other cops have no clear shot so you end up in a situation with all the cops forced to jump in and everybody in range of his weapon. This way the only person hurt is the person who chose to do harm others.

The guy had a pipe and is obviously not thinking on all cylinders a simple takedown by a number of officers would have been the prudent action. I don't know maybe I act too civilized in the way this society is becoming nowadays.
