The Daily Mail reports that the footage shows an attempted arrest 95th Street and Ashland Avenue in which four female officers were attempting to book a single male. Shortly after the female officers try to detain the man, he begins physically struggling with them and manages to break free and run off.
Leaked audio during the event revealed that police dispatch told the female officers, "If we can't contain him & it's just a retail theft, let him go," with them responding that the man "has got a cuff on him already."
Debates about the fitness of current police officers raged online after the interaction.
"I think it's clear that, if they want to meet a quota for women, or diversity, they'll need to make hire transwomen to fill that 'female' quota," posted one user. "That way, they'll be able to check off 'women' while still getting police who have as much strength as a random man."
Another ridiculed the "it's just a retail theft" line, writing, "There is no such thing as just retail theft, it’s a domino effect that affects the rest of us even if not directly. This no chase policy needs to change & ppl need to be held accountable for the crimes they commit."
"Bears the time old question: How many doughnut queens does it take to arrest one shoplifter," a third user wrote, "we now know that it is more than four. But the search for the final answer to this timeless riddle continues."
Chicago has greatly struggled with crime as of late. Robberies in the city is up 24 percent, per the Daily Mail, with theft going up 4 percent and motor vehicle up 50 percent for 2023.
30 people were shot in the Windy City over Thanksgiving weekend in 2023.
Numerous other Chicago weekends have yielded similar results, often with numerous deaths occurring as well.
