Suicide rate soars among Chicago police

Recommended Posts

(CIRCA) — Last year was the deadliest year in Chicago in 19 years with 762 murders, according to data from the Chicago Police Department.

 

But residents aren’t the only victims of the violence. According to an investigation by the Department of Justice, Chicago officers are committing suicide at an alarming rate.

 

“There were times where I truly thought I’d be better off dead than alive,” said Officer Brian Warner, who was diagnosed with PTSD after fatally shooting a man in 2011.
