Evans Suit Derailed

  • A federal court judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by a high-ranking Chicago police officer who alleged that the Independent Police Review Authority retaliated against him and set him up for criminal charges by leaking to the media.

    Glenn Evans, a controversial former South Side commander, sued after he was acquitted by a Cook County judge in 2015 on felony charges that stemmed from allegations he shoved his service gun down suspect Rickey Williams' throat. Williams' DNA was found on Evans' gun.

    Evans, who is now a lieutenant, alleged that IPRA investigator Matrice Campbell still harbored a grudge 15 years after he wrote her up for insubordination while they both worked at the Wentworth District police station and so leaked the DNA results to a WBEZ-FM reporter who then broadcast stories about the investigation.
There's still a chance going forward in the Cook County Courts, but that might be bucking a stacked deck. The Machine isn't likely to award damages against itself. But we'll see.

Evans attorney will probably refile . Don't count him out. Tribune and schmadeke does a half assed reporting job as usual. And if I was wbez and the scum reporter Mitchell, I'd be worried about the other federal lawsuits he can still file.
And then there's the little matter of possible criminal charges against the ipra investigator and "Chip"Mitchell.
Not over by a long shot.
The IG sustained the complaint against ipra and Campbell .far from over.

Chip Mitchell. The guy that slandered Evans is the same guy that attacked Waller,Sanchez,Davis. Looks like this liberal news service (WBEZ)and Chip Mitchell may more racially biased than the police.

Is it true the federal judge in the case is friends with Sharon Fairley of IPRA and her millionaire ex husband John Rogers? That this federal judge went to parties at Fairley's house?
And he was assigned the lawsuit to protect her and IPRA ?

Just like the Lt cheating scandal has failed to bring the involved corrupt members to justice.

You just can't win a fair trial in the corrupt state of Illinois.

Corruption pays off in Chicago Illinois 100 %.

Can't beat them, then join them. Time to join the unNOBLE organization.

The courts are involved with the Democratic party here.
And they will not make waves.

Tried to sue twice and denied. If I were working in private business and
Managers did same there are grounds to file.

But your a chump because your a city cop.

Stay away from this job

This is not a free country anymore, even at the Federal level, liberalism is running ramped and there's no why you can be treated fairly. I hate to say this, but it might be time to start really pushing back at the media and these Judges. They are interfering in the new Presidents ability to govern, and run the Country. The first thing I'm doing to do tomorrow, I'm joining the NRA. The liberals hate the NRA and are calling that organization more dangerous then ISIS. If the Lib's hate that group, I'm going to support them just because of the media and politicians like Durbin. Maybe I don't agree with everything the NRA is doing, but its really going to piss off the people pushing the progressive agenda and that'll be a good thing.

GE's trial was a travesty, a political witch hunt, and a high tech lynching.
Like everybody else, and this blog, I pegged his as guilty until I heard the "evidence" during the trial...
I see why the judge was disgusted and dismissed the whole thing. The state and the media, especially WBEZ and Chip Mitchell ought to be ashamed of themselves.
And about the media nobody's talking about how they physically attacked GE and supporters outside the court. They pushed down a old woman with a cane a pregnant officer, and a four year old girl
Here are a few of the highlights that the media don't want to talk about...
-The dna evidence was discounted by the state's witnesses. The forensic scientists even indicated the dna was flawed and didn't make him guilty.
-Mitchell was ordered as a witness for the defense
The so called victims for almost four hours straight. When he left the courtroom his mother yelled at him " You fucked up"
-The state was called out for forging and misrepresenting an officer's statement
-Martice Campbell , her parrtner, Scott Ando were all caught lying and making false reports
-IPRA boss Fairley was investigating IPRA when she was assigned to the IG
...and so much more.
It;'s interesting that the judge and his lawyers, all former prosecutors found him to be not innocent. Prosecutors usually have a guilty until proven innocent mentality.
I'm about 99% sure he's going to appeal, refile, or otherwise take a second bite at this corrupt apple.
