She second-thoughted herself.

CHICAGO — As her face was being smashed into the pavement by a suspect Wednesday, a Chicago Police officer thought about using her gun to stop the man. Instead she was knocked out. She had been too worried about what people would think if she had used her weapon, she said.

The attack happened Wednesday. Officers on patrol were responding to a car crash in Austin when a man who had been in the crash attacked them, police said. Three officers were injured, one of them seriously, and they were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
