Remember when kids in middle school used to say “snitches get stitches?”
Well, on Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 7 we learned that the stitches part means they can get killed in broad daylight while chatting up a cop.
I have to say, I’ve watched every single episode of Chicago PD to date, and I’ve never been so shaken by a death in my life.
When Cameron was shot in the chest, I jumped out of my seat.
It was obvious that he was going to die by the end of the episode.
Not only is it par for the course for many CI’s, but Cam was a rather overzealous one who ran rampant and ignored Hailey when she urged him to let it go.
Though, I didn’t expect his death to be so tragic and ruthless.
It’s probably important to get this out there now — the first rule of being a CI is to not walk into a police station out freely.
You might as well just ask to get killed.
And when a cop tells you to let it go, you shouldn’t go chasing your leads.
Hailey took Cam’s death personally, and ultimately, the death was on her. She reached out to him knowing how eager he could be about helping.
His blood was, quite literally, on her hands… and face.
The whole episode was heavy for Hailey, who didn’t know how to live with her guilt.
When Voight doesn’t have the answers either, you knew it was serious.
There’s no problem that Voight cannot fix.
Was Darius responsible for Cam’s death? That remains uncertain, though, all signs point to it being the case.
Darius proved he wields a significant amount of power on the streets; he’s capable of anything.
He also knew he had Voight’s protection.
Plus, Cameron was able to ID Darius as a CI after seeing him inside the police station.
But even if Darius was the man behind the kill, it wasn’t worth pursuing.
At the end of the day, Darius helped them get the carfentanil off the street and spared them plenty of overdoses.
Voight could have thrown the case and turned on Darius, but it wouldn’t bring Cameron back.
At least this way, they were doing their job by getting the drugs off the streets.
Darius also held up his end of the bargain after a little nudge from Voight.

Chicago PD – False Positive (7×06)
No justice was served on Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 6.
After the weak episode that was Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 5, the series bounced back with a strong episode that tested everyone in Intelligence.
Halstead took the lead on a gruesome and heartbreaking case, and he was determined to solve it by any means necessary.
Along the way, he made a few wrong calls resulting in a pretty dire day for Chicago law enforcement.
By the end, there were no winners.
However, the biggest mistake Intelligence made was trusting a facial recognition software that was still in its beta stages.
The interim Mayor Crawford felt optimistic about the software and convinced Voight’s team to use it to find their suspect but ultimately, it was their call and their poor decision-making that created this mess.
When the software failed to work properly, there was no one to blame other than Voight because he knew better.
Who puts all of their backing behind a device that hasn’t even officially launched?
Sure, the officer developing the software should have given them the rundown of the device’s flaws ahead of time.
The fact that they were trying to identify a dark-skinned African American man using software that repeatedly botched ID’ing dark-skinned African Americans was crucial information that was conveniently left out.
It would have been good to know ahead of time and would have, most likely, changed the course of the whole investigation.
But again, none of that matters because Intelligence should have never let it get that far.
They naively followed a software while putting aside their better judgments.
They refused to use their skills to build a proper case and accepted that Marcus West was the killer.
When West denied any responsibility for the death of two nine-year-old boys, Intelligence attempted to pull a guilty confession from him at all costs by throwing him into County to break him.
I assumed Halstead realized that West was telling the truth.
There was a moment where the two connected and West was so shaken and scared, Halstead should have considered that maybe they nabbed the wrong guy.
Realistically, there is always some evidence against a suspect that they can use to elicit a confession.
Unfortunately, Halstead was too blinded by rage and his desire to pin this on someone that he got the wrong guy killed.
Technology fails often. It should serve as an aid, but it should never replace a case built from the ground up by detectives that are supposed to be the “best in the city.”
The initial crime was brutal. Only a monster could kill two kids in cold blood.
Someone deserved to pay but it shouldn’t have been an innocent man whose only crime was that he was a junkie.
Chicago PD – Brother’s Keeper (7×05)
And we’re back to mediocre episodes.
It pains me to say that considering how much love I have for Chicago PD, but there’s no denying it.
Following the major #OneChicago crossover that found Chicago dealing with a bioterrorist, I hoped that maybe these next few episodes bottled up that energy and ran with it.
Unfortunately, Chicago PD Season 7 Episode 5 was more uninspired than ever.
It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good, it just was.
It felt more like a filler episode than anything of actual substance.
All of the focus was geared towards the case-of-the-week, which usually bodes well for Chicago PD except for when a case is too straightforward and predictable: there was a murder, two men were responsible, one of them was killed, and the victim’s family member was to blame for it.
Pretty standard stuff, right?
Though, I’ll give the series credit for being inspired by Chicago’s Balkan population.
It’s always nice to acknowledge that crime in a major city isn’t specific to the stereotypical Latino and African American populations.
And everyone apparently distrusts the police equally.
The case was predictable from the moment Vasil mentioned his nephew Peter felt responsible.
It was all about revenge, which was Peter’s uncle’s dying wish.
Instead of having Peter pay for his actions, Voight allowed Vasil to take the blame because why not?
As long as someone pays for the murder that’s all that matters.
Ruzek got himself into hot water once again only this time, he made an enemy out of patrol.
His hot-headed nature isn’t doing him any favors, especially when there’s still so much heat on him.
Let the dust settle, Adam. Keep a low profile. Chill out.
Maybe Atwater is right, he’s drinking too much caffeine.
The whole situation with Werner was messy, and Atwater hilariously stood by with his classic “oh shit” expression watching it unfold.
