$27,000 Dog?

  • City officials in Chicago have agreed to pay $27,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a West Side man who said police shot and killed his dog last year while chasing a suspect.
  • In the lawsuit he filed last February, Calvin Hale alleged that a police officer ran into his yard during the chase and stumbled on his 10-year-old Akita, Lady. He said the officer shot the dog and then continued the chase.
  • City officials have acknowledged the settlement, but declined to comment further. They admit no wrongdoing in the settlement.
Someone brought this up in previous comments, but isn't a dog considered property? And therefore, the City's liability is capped at a much lower number than $27,000 (the comment quoted $250 or so). What gives?

Its about time. . . why should this dog have been deprived of its life and this man be deprived of his companion because a policeman decided to chase a bad guy through the owner's lot and the dog did what dogs do - he defended his territory. A good dog is worth far more that $250.00 and even if the P.O. did nothing wrong and no one is saying he did, the owner deserves to be compensated for his loss.

I'd hate to tell you how much money I and my friends have invested in our dogs and heaven help the sucker who hurts or injures one of them.

Shot a dog on a search warrant.

City payd out five hundred for the dog, no damages for the forced entry.

Go figure, this occurred five years ago

As a police officer and a dog lover, fairness cries out WHY did the officer shoot the man's beloved pet?

How do you put a price on a man's best friend? If anyone killed my beloved people-loving mutt, I would not only be emotionally distraught, I'd want justice and $27 grand ain't enough.

When are the people in Lincoln & Jefferson Park going to catch on to the free money the city gives away?

Start telling your friends to just make up shit, and get at least $25,000 with no chance of being counter sued.

HELL, tell your kids to sell drugs, when they get caught the judge will set them loose, when they are being arrested fight take a couple of hits from a justified strike, and they'll get a payout from the city for getting to hit and be hit by an officer.

This is what happens when you have liberals running the city. I'd even say give him $5,000 for emotional distress. But three times that...come on. Just shows you the retards we have in our law dept. They are afraid of going to court on any lawsuit. Makes me wonder who hires these lawyers.

11:02pm,

The policeman did not "decide" to chase a bad guy thru someone's yard. The bad guy chose that route and the officer was just doing his job by pursuing him. By the way, I hope he caught the guy. Anyway, I assume that the officer must have felt threatened by the dog and shot it to protect himself. I feel sorry for the owner, and agree with you that he should be compensated for the loss of his K9 buddy. But $27k seems a bit excessive to me though.

This dog was the baby's daddy to 57 different puppies with 7 different female dogs. So the settlement was to aid the 57 fatherless off-springs. And even though these puppies weren't full breeds, the Mayor offered all these puppies free AKC papers. The Mayor was quoted as saying, these puppies are just like the illegal aliens that flock to our great city to do hard work and raise a family, just because they are illegal aliens doesn't mean we can't accept them as Chicago citizens. The Mayor continued on to say, many of these puppies graduated a two week mail correspondence dog traing class, just like how our police supt. got his G.E.D. They need to be respected and helped during this traumatic experience.

Additionally the Mayor had a proclamation that Sept 29, 2007 be Puppies without Daddy Day. Hidden in this City Counsil measure was the OK to move the Children's Museum to Grant Park. The silly Aldermen who didn't read the full document, passed the resolution 50 to 0.

This is one slick Mayor! You have to admit. Oh by the way, the Mayor still wants to discontinue medical health insurance for retired coppers and firemen in 2012. Guess we aren't worth are weight like a ghetto dog is.

I believe generally speaking, a dog (and yes I am a dog lover) is property and only worth it's replacement value here in NE. However, you could wind up paying way more than that if you injure the dog and the vet fees start adding up. One of my dogs was attacked in my yard by an unleashed mastiff. Vet bills came to about $1000.

"Someone brought this up in previous comments, but isn't a dog considered property? And therefore, the City's liability is capped at a much lower number than $27,000 (the comment quoted $250 or so)."

IANAL but Illinois animal cruelty law changed about ?three? years ago; this is the current language pertaining to civil actions and compensation for an animal that was subject to aggravated cruelty or torture (definition of aggravated cruelty: No person may intentionally commit an act that causes a companion animal to suffer serious injury or death):

Damages may include, but are not limited to, the monetary value of the animal, veterinary expenses incurred on behalf of the animal, any other expenses incurred by the owner in rectifying the effects of the cruelty, pain, and suffering of the animal, and emotional distress suffered by the owner. In addition to damages that may be proven, the owner is also entitled to punitive or exemplary damages of not less than $500 but not more than $25,000 for each act of abuse or neglect to which the animal was subjected.

Totally agreed with 04:22:00 a good working dog is worth (and probably costs) at least $27K.

Not sure how this situation fits into the definition of aggravated cruelty given by the statute either; except was it really necessary to shoot the dog and you really can't tell from the info given.

Clearly some suit ran the numbers, figured that if this went to court, the total cost/liability would have been considerably more than $27K. So they settled.

It's trivial to google recent incidents (not just in Chicago) where LE has gone out of their way to shoot a "family pet", even when it was clearly unnecessary.

The U.S. Supreme Court has declared that an unreasonable meaningful interference with or destruction of personal property is a violation of the Fourth Amendment even when an officer is acting pursuant to a warrant.

I asked that question to a Personal Injury attorney. Illinois law has changed. Dogs used to be considered property and that 250.00 other bloggers site was what courts typically awarded to killed pets. Today, the legislature says people are entitled to emotional damages and suffereing and loss of companionship.

dear 12:59, or mr. white, middle class, professional with on criminal history. as a city copper i can tell you that your race, class status, job history or criminal record has nothing to do with the disregard any of us might have for you. I give everyone I come into contact with a chance, a first impression and my disregard comes directly from how you treat me or how entitled you think you are. You sir brought all these "qualities" up...and our disregard generally comes from countless hours dealing with selfish users who have no problems running over people, property or simple ethical behavior to get whatever they want/need. I.E. the public. Grow up....if you had any inkling of the "disregard" we experience in one 8-hour shift from the white, middle-class, professional public you would shut yer trap and donate to the FOP retirement fund...and that's not to mention the generations of the lower class, the drugged out, the unemployed, the immigrant, the thug, the haters, the poverty professionals and the "gots-to-get-mines." I'm sure your job is really important, totally numbers, shuffling papers, going to meetings. Just leave the dirty stuff to the professionals and go play fantasy football.

Sorry but I'm too busy with court, my side gig to be playing with myself in my bedroom. Its also obvious you really have nothing more creative to say or to add to the topic other than something about missing a small detail about our crap ammo.


My point, and I'll go slow for you, is that I'm not willing to risk any injury for some mutt or pur bred. I could care less about having a summer off do to an IOD. That injury could have me on light duty, or duty disabilty, and for what? Because I was too much of a pussy to protect myslf? I'm a street guy and proud of it. Got no plans to work inside along you.

SO I hope you get the point here. Its about protecting yourself and going home in the same fashion as when you walked out the door. If Joe Shithead makes himself a threat to me well then down he goes. Same with your dog sweety

What did the white middle class professional say that was so out of line or incorrect that upset some of you? He, for the most part was correct. Look at the way some of us dress. Tac guys dressed up like ninja warriors. Whats the point of being in plain clothes when you wear body armour on top of your "plain clothes" or carry a gun exposed? Some of you DO look like your going off to war. The other day I was in a restaurant in Pilsen. In walked four plainclothes coppers. NOBODY gave them a second look. Know why? Because their guns, radio, body armour and all the other related items we carry were all concealed, as they should be. The only reason I knew who they were is because I know what to look for. They made me proud. Policemen acting like Policemen, not some young self impressed stud who feels the need to dress like a soldier gong off to war.
Am I being too harsh? Read some of the posts here. Many of you post as though you never made it past the fourth grade or as if your the product of a dysfunctional family from the hills of Tennessee.

It's OK junior. Patroling mom's garden, watching court TV, telling your friends and family you are the "working" police and being a general tool is OK.

Then how come the city isn't posting set "fines" of $27G to all those fuckheads who are in organized dog fighting...that itself is aggravated cruelty and torture. Then lock the owner's ass ala Michael Vick for 4 years in the IDOC. arf! arf!

Anybody who doesn't like dogs are complete jagoffs. I had an ex who didn't like dogs and I said buh-bye!

"...And judging by the callous comments posted here, and the absolute disreagard for "civilians" cops seem to harbor, I don't see that changing much.
That should disturb you guys: I'm a white, middle class professional with NO criminal history, and you've lost me. We don't see you guys as the "good guys" anymore. The more military you act, and the more black "tactical" crap you hang on your armor makes you look more like an invading army than civil authorities..."

Hey Oak Parker, go back home! Or maybe you would like to hang around Ferdinand/Lavergne --you pick the time of day. When we come to save your dumb ass you'll be happy we look all 'tactical' and 'army like'
Civil authorities are great, as long as you are dealing with CIVIL people, otherwise, you need any invading army !

I'm intrigued by the post regarding Corniellus Longstreet. Can I hire him to patrol Washington Square Park in my neighborhood (beat 1832)?

Hey 4:30

its funny but that person your started a pissing match with has a valid point. Maybe you should read it again till it sinks in.

Instead you accuse him/her of being on their cycles yet you sound like you have 19 months on. Now I don't know how much time on you have, not really the issue. The issue is about going home alive and well.

And the lingo? We all know the lingo, not sure where your going with that. And who is Joe?
