White Cop Chicago Sues Family Of Black Teen He Killed For $10 Million

We recently reported that Chicago cops were called to the home of 19-year-old Quintonio Legrier for a domestic disturbance in the west side area When things awry.

Both Bettie Jones and Quintonio Legrier ended up shot by the police, shot by police but now the officer who shot Quintonio is seeking $10 million from his estate according to ABC 7 Chicago:

The highly unusual suit was filed Friday in the middle of the city’s effort to grapple with serious questions about the future of its police force. Those questions include the adequacy of its system for investigating police shootings and how to win back public trust after several cases of alleged misconduct. The U.S. Justice Department is conducting a wide-ranging civil rights investigation, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel has promised a major overhaul of the Police Department and steps to heal its fraught relationship with black residents.

The timing and unusual nature of the suit by officer Robert Rialmo, who is seeking $10 million in damages, could complicate the department’s efforts to demonstrate more sensitivity toward the community in how police shootings are handled. His attorney, Joel Brodsky, said it was important in the charged atmosphere to send a message that police are “not targets for assaults” and “suffer damage like anybody else.”

The teen’s father, Antonio LeGrier, filed a wrongful death lawsuit days after the Dec. 26 shooting, saying his son, Quintonio, was not armed with a weapon and was not a threat. His attorney, Basileios Foutris, was incredulous at what he called the officer’s “temerity” in suing the grieving family of the person he shot.

“That’s a new low even for the Chicago Police Department,” he said. “First you shoot them, then you sue them.”

What in the entire f**k is wrong with the police department!??!
