North Chicago cop taped punching suspect faces suspension

NORTH CHICAGO, Ill. (WLS) - A police officer caught on tape clobbering a man in the booking room of the North Chicago Police Department is facing suspension without pay.

Officer Emir King will also attend anger management classes and sign a “last chance” agreement, according to North Chicago City Attorney Chuck Smith, who won’t say how many days King will be off work until an agreement is signed.

A police surveillance video of the July 2010 incident in which King punched Paul Smith, now of Lake Villa, in the head, then shoved him into a wall, was shown in December at a City Council meeting by Ralph Peterson of Waukegan.

Peterson was a first cousin of Darrin “Dagwood” Hanna, who died on Nov. 13, a week after he was allegedly beaten and Tasered during his arrest by six North Chicago police officers. Independent investigations into the death by the Lake County Coroner and Illinois State Police have yet to be either completed or made public.

Peterson, who along with other members of the Hanna family, is leading a protest against what he claims is a pattern of rogue policing in the department, comes to meetings of the City Council armed with photos, witnesses and alleged and confirmed victims of police brutality. On Monday, he spoke against two more officers, including Brandon Yost, one of those present during Hanna’s arrest and who allegedly sports spiderweb tattoos on his elbows. Peterson claims the tattoos symbolize gang membership and/or violence against black men.

“We’re looking into that,” Smith said Wednesday. “Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s a lot we can do. There’s no law against having a tattoo. I can only recommend discipline based on violation of rules.”

Peterson also publicized an October 2010 incident in Gurnee in which off-duty Officer William Bogdala displayed a gun during a confrontation with a motorist and his passengers over a loud car stereo.

The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office declined to press charges in the matter.

Smith said neither he nor Mayor Leon Rockingham had been made aware of the incident, now under investigation.

“Newsome knew,” Smith said.

Police Chief Michael Newsome was placed on leave Jan. 3 after more allegations of excessive force emerged. Rockingham also launched an independent internal investigation headed by retired State Police Col. Robert Johnson. He previously placed the officers involved in the Hanna arrest on desk duty.

Smith said interim Chief James Jackson helped craft the discipline for King.

Johnson is also investigating Hanna’s arrest and the arrest of four other men who required medical care for injuries: Walter Wrather, who suffered a broken tibia from a bite by a police dog; Paul Smith, who underwent brain surgery after he was arrested for burglarizing a car stereo store; Christopher Harper, who said he was repeatedly Tasered outside Frank’s Lounge where he works; and Windell Gilliom, who was allegedly beaten in two separate incidents.

Eighty-eight complaints of excessive force have been lodged against the department in the past four to five years, according to Rockingham.

Johnson on Monday updated council members on the status of each investigation in closed session.

Chief leaps into McDonald's fray...orders large fries and gives all concerned an award


The McDonald's incident in McLean Virginia

Fairfax County Police investigated the Fairfax County Police in the matter of the police assaulting teenagers in a local McDonald’s and ……wait for it…….the Fairfax County Police found the Fairfax County Police innocent.
I know…..we’re as surprised as you are.

According to the official police report what happened was that a cop opened his car door inside the McDonald’s and when he shut the car door it involuntarily took his club from his belt and smacked a kid in the face with it.
And then it happened a second time to another cop and another kid.

The department also found that the officer did not refer to the teen as a “little faggot” but rather what he said was “Sometimes bad fruit is filled with little maggots”

The report added that since there is no police oversight in Fairfax County and the culture of the police here is to do whatever they want since negative reports only stay in a cop’s folder for 30 days, all you people who complained can go fuck yourselves.    

Second Student Says Police Officer Struck Him at McDonald's

Police, students clash at downtown McLean McDonald's

At 9:23 pm. Feb.10, Peter Horst of McLean received a text from his son saying:" I was literally just assaulted by a cop."

His son Sam, 17, said he was in the downtown McLean McDonald's where a Fairfax County police officer struck him three times, took him outside for a breathalyzer test, then told him he was free to go.

He is the second student to describe how police officers struck them. Sam sent McLean Patch an e-mail message after the news-site published a story about incidents at McDonald's based on an interview with the McLean Police District Commander. He disagreed with the commander's description of events.

Nearly 30 people who left comments on the McLean Patch front page after that story, many disagreeing with the commander's report.

McLean District Commander Capt. Daniel Janickey said hundreds of students were at McDonald's on Old Dominion Drive following the Langley-McLean basketball game, an intense crosstown rivalry.

"The officers were telling them to disperse and they were not listening. The officer did use his baton to hold one individual up against the wall. No one was ever struck with a baton,” Janickey said.

“We were outnumbered tremendously. We had three officers available and the crowd was being unruly. It was unsafe situation” for the community, Capt. Daniel Janickey, commander of the McLean Police District, said last week.

"You had over 100 kids in there (at the McDonald's). They just took the place over. Some were intoxicated. They didn’t listen to management or police. The officers were trying to maintain order," he said. "This is a community and public safety issue."

The incidents are now under investigation by the Internal Affairs unit of the Fairfax police department because of allegations of excessive force.

Capt. Janickey said that night police arrested four students at the game at McLean High School and arrested a fifth student outside the McDonald's. All were juveniles and were charged with public drunkenness.

Sam Horst attended the game then headed to McDonald's. He arrived alone to find police officers outside and an army of Langley and McLean students inside.

"There were people all over the place. It was wild but not a drunken mob,” he said .

He immediately saw "two kids confronting each other." Then "Two or three police officers came rushing in the front door and sort of knocked the kids apart.”

Sam, who had entered through the Elm Street side door, was on his way to the counter to order “And the cop turned to me.”

A police officer was standing off to the side, “I had taken four steps when he started hitting me.” They had not spoken.

“He hits me three times. He rams me in the chest." The officer then pinned him against a wall.

“He was pushing the baton against my throat." Sam said he tried to move the baton to relieve the pressure on his throat.

The officer said, “He would knock me down on the ground and handcuff me,” if he didn't stop.

“The whole time I was trying to ask him what I had done wrong,” he said.

The officer takes out a notebook, asks his name then tells Sam to follow him outside for a breathalyzer test, Sam said.

"I don’t know what I had done to make him think I had been drinking,” the Langley student said.

Test done, the officer tells Sam he's not under arrest and he can go.

That's when he texted his dad.

Peter Horst, at a Friday afternoon interview with his son, said he immediately asked his son was he okay and if he had been " a smart mouth (because) you just don’t mess around with a policeman doing his thing.”

Then he heads to McDonald's and talks to a police officer.

"I’ve been disappointed" by the police statement, he said. "I'm maintaining hope that they will do what great organizations do which is acknowledge a mistake, deal with it, and move on.”

He said a police investigator had contacted the family.

"No one has more respect for law enforcement than I do” said Peter Horst, adding that he has relatives and friends who are FBI agents, DEA agents, and local police officers.

“This is not a family with a grudge against the cops. . . I am just really disappointed that they can’t just acknowledge a mistake,” Peter Horst said.

Sam, a Langley High school junior, who said he had a 3.7 grade average and who plays for the soccer team, had an ACT test, the next day.
