Gee, Imagine That
- Authorities recount run-ins with the man charged in the bat attack on two women in Chicago's Bucktown community.
ABC7 has learned Heriberto Viramontes has received settlements of thousands of dollars from the City of Chicago and Cook County in recent years. Those settlements were reached after Viramontes claimed he was the victim of police abuse.
Even though officers denied those claims, Viramontes received cash settlements totaling $18,000.
The Chicago way - paying your criminals for fighting the police and then when the settlement money runs out, letting them victimize you again.
