Counter suing. How original.

Our legal system is constantly being abused, and seems to encourage it. Nonsense suits shouldn't get far past the mailroom.

I know nothing about this case. However, I'm sick of the DOJ wanting to investigate, probe, and vilify so many police officers who put their lives on the line every day. So, yeah, I'm glad to see a counter suit. Cops can't just stand there and be targets, physical or legal, because of the actions of others. Sad that Mrs. Jones was killed by a through and through.

I've was following the story when it first came out in December. It's been reported on the news many times that the officer shot Bettie Jones, it always sounded like he aimed his gun at her and intentionally shot her. This is the first time I've learned that she was shot with a bullet that passed through Quintonio's body and struck her. So much for accurate news reporting.

The police know that Rahm and his legal counsel and the aldermen will quickly settle with the family for a large sum while throwing them under the bus. This move is likely the officer's attempt to partake in the "ghetto lottery".

No I think it's an attempt to stay out of jail and possibility keep his job. Rahm will do everything he can to throw this officer to the wolves and get the black community off of his back.

and again on the morning news, "Chicago to settle with the family of Bettie Jones the mother/grandmother shot and killed by the Chicago Police". Would it really kill them to use the word accidentally instead of making it sound like she was targeted. Is it any wonder that people are learning to hate the police, they hear this crap on TV and think the police are randomly shooting and killing black people.

I honestly feel sorry for the officer, he had no intention of shooting that woman, it was an accident and he will have to live with it for the rest of his life.

So I got so pissed off earlier this morning that I called the local CBS station in Chicago and complained about the way they were reporting the shooting. They admitted that they had access to information stating that the shooting wasn't intentional, it was an accident. I asked if they could report it as an accidental shooting and they said they would look into it. So now at the 8:25 news break they reported she was mistakenly shot, that still sounds like the officer aimed his gun at her and pulled the trigger. WTF is up with these news stations, don't they believe in reporting the events as they actually happened any more?

Nice try, Chuck. "If it bleeds, it leads." It's all about ratings. They are playing to the emotionally uninformed.
