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.

So the sergeant should file suit against the dead drivers estate.
The circle of life.

This could all have been avoided if the city would just hire psychic police. Then the police would know NOT to be in the exact spot where fleeing felons would rear-end them in traffic. See how easy it is? Psychic police.

Um, Way OT:
Speaking of law suits, for the rest of her life, that poor young lady is going to bare the burden of Richie Daley's purchase of those O'Hare Shelters which have not been kept in decent repair. Recall it was a French company that got the contract. Wonder how much it was worth?

Sad thing is that this will get negative media attention, the police will be the bad guys and the city will settle and pay them off. Society is really falling apart. It was one thing to say that years ago, but this has gotten bad...

If the city would stop cutting checks to these folks and take the cases to court then maybe it would stop. Chicago is just too willing to hand out money on these suits just to make the go away.

It cases like this, it helps to include the scumbag attorney's names, their law firms and contact information. This way regular citizens can put the word out who, what, where these scumbags operate.

They should have to wear large IDs denoting who they are and what they do.

I sure hope that the officers involved submitted their IOD reports. Most importantly, the injured officers should have already filed lawsuits against the reckless decedents, their estate, the vehicle owner and have the judgements in place for future compensation, if and when the "estates" of these two happen upon some ghetto lottery funds.
Police need to file judgements against anyone who injures them for any reason, no matter what.

In my sixty plus years of life I have met a few lawyers that are decent people, but that really is the exception. Most attorneys that I have run across are in the business of complicating the world by making as much money as they can for themselves. They are really scum and lowlifes and not to be trusted. They will lie and make up defenses just to win, but will not hesitate to accuse the police of not being honest.

Guess who murdered someone before he got out in time to kill some more folks.

Jahaziel Duron, 17, of Hanover Park, was convicted in November of the stabbing of Diontae Roberts, 23, of Hanover Park, in the yard during a birthday party in June 2009 in Hanover Park. He is yet to be sentenced.

Look at the little angel's Facebook home page pic. He sure loved his booze. I wonder, was an autopsy done and did they determine if he was intoxicated?

Actually "killed two suburban men" would be more accurate if it read "killed two suburban criminals". Why don't you taxpayers demand that? It's your money the families bloodsucking lawyers are trying to steal.

Jesus I remember that. They were going so fast it was over before it began, car was going 100mph when cops first saw it. There wasn't time enough for anything to be called out. Then they hit the sarge and boom, dead instantly at 100mph. This is absolutely 100% no fault of the police whatsoever. But this is Crook Co. Those guys were scum. Lawyer dirtbag lookin for a city lottery payout, nothing more. I hope this one is fought. If not then my tiny bit of faith in Asa's is gone.

The Supreme Court has already ruled that a suspect in a fleeing vehicle can not sue because the fleeing person could have stopped at any time but didn't. This is from a case in Arizona look it up.

The French (fancy bus shelter) company is JCDecaux Their panel trucks for maintenance are often seen. Sounds like a "Flower Box" Maggie brainstorm. Only God knows what Chicago taxpayers must shell out for this over-the-top scam.

First if all the lawyer us wrong about hitting a squad car in rear. Dude swerved head on into squad car and lost it all. The good Sgt had divine intervention. Gangsters pulled their own ticket.

Hey judges. Grow some balls and throw these ridiculous lawsuits out and let these bottom feeder lawyers starve.

OR......

Allow judges and States attorneys the ability to be sued. Now that would probably bring some balance to this broken system.

Oh yeah, another dream I was having.

Didn't the U.S. Supreme Court rule a few years ago that if you are fleeing the police you cannot sue the police if you get injured?

What are 600 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? A good start.

The problem with that is if the officers did sue and WON, the city would go after the officers to get back what they paid out for their IOD's.

You must be new to the game. This is Chicago! Where lawyers can argue successfully that their clients, while they were being chased by the police, were not fleeing from the police.

Of course! You should know by now, that if there is even a hint of an officer in the area it's a reason enough for them to sue.

Yeah, they're 'often seen' double-parked, blocking lanes, parked on sidewalks, defying traffic laws... Because they're special. So special, their workers are not required to walk more than ten steps to the service vehicle at any given time.

So the city should support this and divide the proceeds between the officer(s), the lawyers and the city. As long as the city don't try that sneaky trick where they want the full retail price of medical expenses and not what they actually shelled out.

The video and audio from this incident was saved the night it occurred. It clearly shows the vehicle careening off of 28th street onto Kedzie (N/B) through a red light, continuing N/B at a ridiculous rate of speed with the officers NOT chasing. In fact, in the video, the immediate deceleration of the squad car can be seen and on the radio the officer clearly states "We are not chasing this vehicle. This information is for officer safety." How do I know this? My partner and I were the officers who alerted Zone 10 after seeing the traffic violations. The asshole driving had absolutely no regard for any life - including his own - as is evidenced by his driving.

PLEASE stay off social media (which includes this blog). You are only leaving yourself open for scrutiny and subpoenas.
Why does EVERYBODY feel the need to regurgitate the details of their life on internet pages? PLEASE protect yourself in situations like this. The only people you should be telling this to are your supervisor, attorney or a judge.
