how terrible. i drove past this around 7:30 today on my way to work. it looked pretty bad. i wonder what caused it.
My heart goes out to his family, friends, and the rest of the CDP that do work hard to keep our community and city safe, despite many obstacles.
If you live in the area policed by 023 District Police, you are enjoying the best Police service of anywhere in the city. Try getting this level of service anywhere else. Rip veteran Sgt.
They're in my thoughts and prayers.

I don't have the words outside to say that I'm sorry.From the stories it's clear his family and the CPD have lost a good man.
I knew Alan Haymaker years ago while he was a veteran street cop on the west side. Like most Police Officers, he was an honorable man who did his job for the citizens of Chicago without regard to the neighborhood or the residents that he served.Today, some 15 years later, Sgt. Alan Haymaker made the ultimate sacrifice to the citizens of Chicago when he lost his life enroute to a crime in progress. For most citizens, this "story" will be present for a couple of days, until the TV news runs the footage of the funeral attended by thousands of his fellow officers later this week. Rest assured, however, that this is more than just a "story" to the men and women who worked with and for him in the 023rd District, his Supervisors, and ALL members of the Chicago Police Department.Please remember that Alan Haymaker was a wonderful person, a loving father to his three daughters, a caring husband and an example to all of his fellow officers. He will be deeply missed.~
I too drove by this morning....it is terribly sad.Especially since he was responding to a burglary call.A Police Officer's job is dauntingly tough.
Bless officers Haymakers family.He will be missed.
If some fool(s) wasn't committing that robbery, then this officer would be alive.
I drove past this on the way to work Monday morning. What a sad story. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends.
