Chicago Police Officer Mourns His Fallen Brethren

Chicago Police officer Alejandro “Alex” Valadez died 14 hours after being hit in the head and leg while responding to a report of gunfire in the south side neighborhood of Englewood. It's the third time in the past year a Chicago cop has been murdered in the line of duty. Police officer Michael Carroll of the targeted response unit says enough's enough.
