Another Nuisance Suit
- A federal lawsuit filed last week against Chicago police alleges officers wrongly shot a West Humboldt Park man suspected of wielding a gun.
The lawsuit, filed by the firm Loevy & Loevy on behalf of the suspect's family, says Pedro Gonzalez III, 21, was unarmed when police shot him multiple times in the back June 15. Three officers on patrol saw Gonzalez had a gun in his waistband near Kolin Avenue and Hirsch Street, officials have said, prompting two of the officers to chase him on foot.
Gonzalez pulled out a gun and officers fired at him, fatally striking Gonzalez, police said.
So a gun was recovered, the dead guy was at a memorial for another dead gang banger, and everyone wonder's why cops are so cynical.
