Woman’s bullets fell out of gun just before she tried to shoot cop

Shandra Kidd
This has got to be a case of sheer stupidity and madness. It's unbelieveable that she had no bullets in her gun then attempted to fire at police.
In May 2007, officers were investigating a report of shots fired near 78th and Burnham when they stopped a car Kidd was riding in. She ran and when an officer caught her, she stuck a gun in the officer’s chest and pulled the trigger.

But the gun didn’t go off.

The officer and Kidd struggled and they fell down. When they got up, she stuck the gun in the officer’s chest again and pulled the trigger.

Again, it didn’t go off.

That’s when the officer shot Kidd, 22, of the 7700 block of South Phillips.

Police later found that the cylinder of Kidd’s gun had opened during the chase and all the bullets fell out.

Judge Neil Linehan sentenced Kidd on Thursday.
Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez was quoted in this article saying...
“This is a fitting and a just sentence for anyone who would be so bold as to fire a gun at a police officer,” Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said. “We are grateful that this officer was uninjured in this incident and we will continue to prosecute violent crimes against police officers to the fullest extent of the law.”
And for this 2nd City Cop blasted her:
Unless of course, she's in Hawaii and can't get camera-time for charges against a cop killer.
They're of course referring to a story about no charges were immediately filed against a man in prison who apparently confessed to the murder of a police officer last year. A story I wrote blogged about over at my very own The Sixth Ward.
