And Here's the Lawsuit

  • The mother of Dillan Harris is suing 20 police officers, the City of Chicago and the man charged in her son's death. The 13-month-old boy was in his stroller when he was struck and killed by a car fleeing from police.

    "The only thing I have to say is my son was innocent. And he should not have died," Shatrelle McComb said Thursday at a news conference to announce the lawsuit.

    Antoine Watkins, 21, is accused of driving the car that jumped the curb, struck the stroller and dragged it into a vacant lot in the 6300-block of South Ellis Avenue in the city's Woodlawn neighborhood on July 11.
If you commit murder in Chicago, there is an over-70% chance you get away with it. This lawsuit will push that percentage to over 85%.

All the stations said that the chase was terminated by a Sgt. A homicide & there's a terminate order?? Or is the lawyer just blowing smoke up the media's ass and they believe it. Right on the tail end of the Waller Co. TX reports that the in custody death was a suicide.

So when the state and city "representatives" try to screw pensioners out of their promised money, taking them and their children and grandchildren out will carry little danger?

Cool.

Anyone who chases on foot or in a car is crazy! The public hates us almost much as the brass. Write the report & live to get a pension. No matter how good of a job you do it will still be wrong. Do what the G O requires and leave it at that.

This is embarrassing. These "activists" and "reverends" want the violence to reduce and stop. The police try and stop them and get the criminals and it always results in either a race card pulled or a law suit. It's an absolute joke. Fuck these areas. Let them shoot each other, code it out and call it a day. Why bother wasting tax dollars and resources on areas that very obviously, do not want help?

I think high speed vehicle chases are a thing of the past. These thugs will run red lights and blow stop signs doing 60 miles an hour and think nothing of the consequences. And, the saddest part, police officers have been killed during these chases. If the thugs run, let them go unless it is in the middle of the night. It is not worth it to you or your families. The public be damned as they do not care about you.

There is a clear message being sent here. The citizens, city and politicians don't want us to chase anyone anymore. When their family gets shot dead in front of them and then you pull up and they say "there goes the shooter in that car". You will be saying we don't chase anymore due to the lawsuits brought on by chases, here is your report.

Just show up and do what you have to do for you and your partner to go home safely.

Waiting for the apocalypse.

No shit,true story. I did time in county for a minor infraction, but believe me,I walked the straight and narrow since. Several things I learned from there, most of the guys in there will do worse when they are released. They spend the time in county with friends, it is like a gang reunion. Also several guys told me the easiest case to beat is murder. So they are willing to sit in county for 3 years or more and beat the case. The guards are crooked,almost all of them. They bring in the drugs, phones, food for their special friends, the ones who have connections once they get out. It is a cesspool of deceit.

WHAT?!? Is she f--king delusional? Worse, is her asshole 'Lawyer' delusional and how is this jackass even allowed to practice law?

It's bullshit lawsuits like this that are prime examples of why we need f--king Tort Reform, and not just in Illinois. This, sue everybody and 'Go for the deepest pocket' crap has to end.

Not that I give a shit, but what's mama gonna do when she loses this idiotic fucking lawsuit against the 20 police officers? Besides scream, Racism!!.

What a society we live in. Basically it is unclear why we ever send police into the ghetto at this point. They don't want police, they don't pay taxes, they don't "snitch", they verbally abuse police who they encounter, and hit the ghetto lottery any time police do anything. WTF.

Looking at the 30% homicide clearance rate does not tell the whole story. It is worse then that. Look at the conviction rate not the clearance rate and you would be lucky to hit a number in the high teens. I think the media should look at the bottom line number convictions - who goes to jail for murder.

Even if a termination order was truly given its a matter for discipline not a lawsuit. Lawsuits should only relate to violations of laws. A hot pursuit of a murder should be supported by a court.

Is there still any doubt out there about giving these people
(and folks) exactly the Police response they've so rightfully earned?

The Police were nowhere near or directly involved in this tragedy, right?
Just the car full of dirty m/fers FLEEING the scene of a shooting/Homicide
they've just committed. Right?

The Police get sued.
The City pays out to keep the lawyers fat
and make the plaintiffs go away.

The Officers sucked into this mess will find themselves
on yet another Rahm Emanuel "List" to be given to the
media and God-Knows-Who-Else to keep public outrage
against The Police at a fast-rolling boil.

"We won't continue to tolerate how you Cops
keep getting away with stuff like this while avoiding
being made to take responsibility for it and managing
to escape being punished when things like this happen
because you Cops have that thug FOP "Union" protection
that needs to be taken away from you."

This is the stinking thinking that helps drive The War Against The Police.

It WAS NOT a Policeman fleeing a shooting, losing control of a car and
crashing it over a curb into a child in a stroller, then fleeing THIS scene
only to be captured shortly thereafter.

It was the handiwork of some who make up the "community,"
and the "community" can't be bothered to take a hard look at
itself.

Things would self-correct if The Police divorce themselves from
any and all sense of duty to and ownership of the latent pathologies
that afflict the the dwellers of these zones of urban criminal impunity.

Police De-Escalation and Duty to Retreat is what they say they want.

In summary... If these fools had no fear of being hunted and captured
by the "brutal and racist" Po-leece, they wouldn't have have to flee the
scene of a Homicide in such a great hurry, lose control and crash the car
into an occupied baby-stroller. Right?

"We doin' wat we do so y'all Po-leece gotta leave us
da fuck alone or else we finna be mad an' shit!"

Right?

It is way past time for The Police themselves to seriously
re-assess their role in the "Community" that says they want no
part of the rest of society save for the precious treasure and
good works the rest of society has squandered on this so called
"Community."

The Policeman didn't break it.
It's way beyond The Policeman to fix.

I'm not mad at the mother at all. Do I think it's the city's fault? Of course not. But after seeing all these birds and miscreants get payouts, I mean that were involved in criminal activity, at this point I'm sure it makes sense. If the city is paying money to guilty people, surely innocent people should get at least the same thing. I'm pretty sure that has a rational ring in a lot of people's heads.

I struggle to see how different this is than when coppers get the discounts and hook ups canceled at restaurants because they get out of control and abuse them. I'm still not sure why we think we are so different. Half of us are just as crazy, if not crazier, than the people we deal with on the street. Law enforcement and the military has provided no shortage of people chasing every dime they can get that they feel entitled to, however lazy, greedy and useless it makes them appear.

Other well-informed, intelligent comments of the day --

“I don't know Sandra [Bland, who hanged herself in a Texas jail cell], and I don't know what happened,” said Hank Brown, of Chicago.

“But I do know she didn't have to die. There's an epidemic of police terror in this country, and people need to stand up.”

Get the hats, T-shirts, and bullhorns out.

There are so many deals like this running in parallel now that you can hardly keep track. This foolishness has become the primary, full-time occupation of the Fergusonized segment of the "black community," to the exclusion of all else.

It completely fills our days and nights. The whole world revolves around the wildest complaints and accusations. It is exhausting.

Stop shooting each other all the time, and you might be off to some kind of start.

It will never get changed because lawyers and judges are exempt from civil suits. None have the balls to just chalk up the case as frivolous and dump it.

At least Jody Weiss fought lawsuits and when you fight them and win the lawsuits start dropping dramatically.
