More Lawsuits

Does anyone remember this type of fallout from the Bulls riots?
  • Two more women are suing Chicago Police for hate crimes and battery after the officers allegedly sprayed pepper spray on the women and their children, and forcing their way into their West Side home as they celebrated Barack Obama’s Election Night victory.

    The suit marks the second in two weeks alleging police abuse of civilians celebrating Obama’s win.

Opportunistic lawsuits.

Actually, I'm thinking this is (ironically) a GOOD thing. It will finally force into the light of day what really was happening out there on Tuesday night, 04 November. Squad car windows shot out, crowds rushing the police, civil unrest... maybe some film... a few Federal marshals who will testify about being deployed to 015...

Notice, it's the same liar, I mean lawyer.

Must be one of the many kickback arrangements, disguised as legitimate settlements.

I wonder what, if anything, the blue lights will show.

It seems to me that the pos looters that hit every store on the west side took their beatings and gasings like adults during the Bulls riots. They understood that it was the trade-off for not going to jail on felony charges...That was then...

Today, 10 or 15 years later, I think Daley has trained them all to sue the city first and he will pay them off, even if there is no proof that anything they claim actually did occur.

Kulis files between 5 and 10 lawsuits a month against the CPD. He settles most of them for under $50,000. So, if you figure he earns approximately $16,666 on each case, that is $90,000 to $167,000 a month from the city.
In case you haven't noticed, suits against law enforcement are the new tort de jour and a replacement for med mal suits, product liability, and other tort cases which have been cut down due to tort reform legislation and rulings by some courts.
What the departments and municipalities have to do is train personnel how to make themselves a smaller, harder target for these opportunistic blood suckers, publicize the fact that most federal judges lean toward the bad guys and are prejudiced against the police, and demand legislation that would require lawyers and their clients who bring BS cases to pay the fees and costs of the police if plaintiff loses.
Of course that would be politically unpopular in some quarters of the voting public, so it will not be pushed by our brave leaders.

SCC This might not fit you Blog, I know you deal mainly with Law enforcement issues, but please consider allowing me to post this important issue. I just saw the local Chicago morning news casts and they all led off with the Obama night lawsuits/Police misconduct video, of course in their anti-Police bias ways.



A call to boycott the bias mainstream media. Please take the time to indicate in your comments, along with your response, if you will boycott the mainstream media. All I am asking for is a short response, such as, YES I WILL BOYCOTT THE BIAS MAINSTREAM MEDIA.

• Who is behind this call to boycott the bias mainstream media? Me, a concerned American citizen, who believes we are all responsible for our country.
• Who provides money for this campaign? Me, a concerned American citizen, who believes we are all responsible for our country.
• What is the objective of this campaign? To gather all the responses to my inquiry and send them to the bias mainstream media (ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT, LATIMES, etc.) – (locally WGN, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago tribune, etc.)
• What do you want from the bias mainstream media? Only that they openly acknowledge their bias, let the American people know exactly what their agenda is without pretense. Example: New York Time-A liberal publication.
• About me- An American citizen residing in Chicago Illinois-married- four children- earning less then $100,000 a year-consider myself a conservative-have vote for both Republicans and Democrats.
Thank you

FOX news Lilia Chacon of course is broadcasting amateur video that shows NOTHING even close to what is accused. Not to mention an ambulance chasing attorney hopping on the Civil rights bandwagon. Where's Loevy & Loevy? This is what they usually exploit. These are just more stories manufactured so that a quick nuisance suit payout can be attained by these "celebrants" from Chicago and Laramie. Watch how many more hop in this ghetto lottery scam. Did anyone see what the amateur video showed CLEARLY? A Bunch of welfare grabbing maniacs using a presidential election to once again broadcast their ignorance. It's been 10 years since the last Bulls victory so its a new generation of asshole.

There are few easy ways to get the medias' attention, since the number of participating citizens needed is greater than the number of citizens willing to make even the meager efforts to participate.


One possible way to make it easy enough for all, except the most dedicated to being lazy citizen, would be to do the following:


1. Determine the number of media broadcast stations you wish to send a message to.

2. Enlist the aid of that number of assistants and have those assistants:

a) watch all the news broadcasts of their assigned station, every day, for, say, a week.

b) compile a list of every commercial broadcast during those newscasts and determine the companies paying for said commercials.

c) Divide the contents of the lists compiled into 3 categories, those being: local businesses, national businesses and station content promotions.


3. Collate, by the above categories, the compiled lists from each broadcast media station surveyed.

4. Create a blog, such as this one, and post the collated 3 category lists of sponsors/advertisers under the headings of:

LOCAL BUSINESSES TO BOYCOTT

NATIONAL BUSINESSES TO BOYCOTT

ADVERTISED PROGRAMMING TO BOYCOTT


5. In addition to boycotting, compile a list of e-mail addresses for the above, collected advertising companies/businesses, and post same.

(this to make it easier for any who wish to inform said companies/businesses as to their intent to boycott and the reasons why)


6. Offer a link to your blog to SCC and post a comment, with your intentions and link, on every locally based blog you can think of, regardless of the nature of the content of said blogs, and on every locally based or visited blog anyone you know can think of. (even if you were a hermit, that number will still be rather large)


7. Remember to send e-mails outlining your intentions to each media outlet, both prior to and during your executing the above sequence of actions.



Even a participation rate in the hundreds, let alone the thousands, will rattle a few cages.

Imagine what a 100k+ might accomplish.



A casual monitoring of just one news broadcast, on just one station shows the nature of the advertisers buying time during this type of programming.


Insurance, home repair contractors and building material retailers, restaurants, entertainment ticket sellers, merchandise retailers, casinos, auto dealers, pharmaceuticals, food products, etc., etc., etc., an amazing number of local businesses advertise regularly during news programming, many seeking local consumers and directed at same.


If you're really serious about making an effort to influence the medias' anti-law enforcement bias, the fact that you've been able to post a comment on this blog shows that you have most of the skills needed to accomplish the above.

Anything you have trouble with, just ask you're kids to do it for you.


This is the opportune time to exert this type of leverage.


Boycotting the media itself rarely works, but, boycotting their advertisers hits them right where they live.


Good luck and I hope to see your BOYCOTT BIASED MEDIA blog's link up soon.

kind of off topic: was at the Rodney Carrington comedy show tonight, he started off with some weird music, he comes out and says "does that sound like african music? "get used to it you got 4 more years of it" "you all voted for him, what did you expect?" It was pretty funny, two african americans got up and walked out, and the A/A couple sitting next to me told them as they walked by, " get a sense of humor he is a comdedian"
Rodneys next jokes spoke of rednecks, good thing they didn't leave, or else the place may of emptied out...

Is a link to a story from Randolph County Mo.
Tasered man's death ruled a homicide.
Here's a brief excerpt

Coroner Rules in Moberly Man's Death

MOBERLY - Randolph County Coroner ruled the death of Stanley Harlan a homicide.

On Aug. 28, 23-year-old Harlan was making his way home when police claim they caught him driving while intoxicated. Police said Harlan resisted arrest and so they used a taser, or an electroshock device, to apprehend him.

Harlan's family said witnesses stated otherwise.

The feds won't testify. None of the civil unrest will come up. No one cares.

The officers will get sued (wrongfully) for spraying OC. The jury will belive the shitheads. The city will either settle or lose, either way the officers are all presumed guilty.

NO ONE IS GOING TO HELP YOU ON THIS JOB! If you get sued this department, other officers, politicians, citizens, they will all turn their back on you.

When you get sued on this job, you are truly all alone. It's only then that you ask yourself why the hell did you take any action? Why didn't you just drive away?

The people in this city DO NOT want laws enforced. They have told you more than 10 million times over the past three years to stop enforcing laws.

The department has put cameras on your cars, cameras on your search warrants, cameras in your station, cameras in your interviews, and form upon form for any thing you do...all so they can easily fire you.

THEY ARE TELLING YOU TO STOP STOPPING PEOPLE!!

No, it's called a made up story to get a few bucks from the city. The city will try to get it dismissed as it will provide no specifics or identifiers, no permanent injuried sustained etc. the judge will alllow to it proceed because he is a lawyer or course, the city will then just settle the case because they have no way to defend it. Look for a $5000 payout and it goes away, never hits a courtroom.
Incidentally, I was maced by two black officers on the southside that very same night, racial epithets were yelled at me and I was told that "we run this shit now", they were in an unmarked squad with "m" plates, i've been emotionally and physically scared, i've had nightmares, nightsweats, and am afraid to go out of my house out of pure fear, am unable to work, cannot concentrate, and now in therapy, lawsuit to follow.
