Officer Bailey thank you for your long service, horrible that you were just weeks away from retirement. The other officer who was killed on your department just weeks ago, and you were both in uniform from my understanding, and the other officer was in a substation parking lot! Then I hear over 50 people got shot just in one weekened a couple weeks ago, Chigago officers the gloves come off, they took out 2 of your own in uniform, this is a personal attack! Take back your streets, mayor needs to declare martial law, its out of control. You guys need to do what you have to do, go back to old style policing, this is BS!, i wouldnt tolerate this. Be safe out there CPD

RIP brother. Chicago PD it appears a war is being waged against you. May 20th Ofc. Wortham is killed in a robbery attempt, July 7th Ofc Soderberg killed in a robbery outside of the station he worked at, and now Ofc. Baily! So sad. I have never seen anything so crazy.

Watch your backs, it appears these morons are targeting Police. Stay safe
