Um, This is a Lawsuit?
They are fleeing, crash into a squad car, careen into a building, die, and it's the fault of the police?
- A lawsuit filed Friday claims an unnecessary Chicago Police pursuit caused a crash that killed two suburban men last year on the Southwest Side.
The suit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of 21-year-old Jahaziel Duron, one of two men who died in the crash on Oct. 19, 2014.
At the time, authorities said that Duron and 27-year-old Hugo Rodriguez were in a vehicle speeding in the 4000 block of West Ogden when it struck the back of a squad car, then crashed into a building.
Duron, of Berwyn, and Rodriguez, of Elgin, were dead at the scene, authorities said. A sergeant in the squad car was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with injuries not thought to be life-threatening, police said at the time.
But the lawsuit claims that the vehicle was actually fleeing from police before it crashed with the squad car.
Their court filing even admits they were fleeing! The only ones who died were the fleeing assholes, but someone has to sue on their behalf. They're worth more dead than alive. In a just world, this would be laughed out of court. And when the Revolution comes, the lawyers filing this suit would be the first up against the wall.
