Chicago Cop Faces Suspension For Punching Suspect

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.

  • So in domestic violence cases when a man punches his wife, he can never own a fire arm again. But if your a cop..anger management classes and we give you a badge and a gun and send you back out on the street. Douchebaggery I say.

  • That's a nice lawsuit. I remember after I got arrested I forgot that I had a $50 in my sock as a usually do when I go out so they brought me in the strip search room and told me to take my clothes off. I did and the cop said "do you have anything else on you" I looked down and replied "obviously no" and the cop slapped me across each cheek to the point I had a ringing in my ears and said "NO SIR!". As I was putting my clothes back on, I was saying to the other offic More..

    • @dorbie

      No I didn't because I was drunk (arrested for drunk in public after getting into a fight) and my drunk word against a cops is next to useless as I believe the complaint would've been.

  • Anger management classes? Whoever handed down that punishment may as well have kissed the tip of the responsible officer's dick.

  • Funny that a regular working Joe would go to prison for that, when a cop gets paid anger management and paid leave.

  • I didn't see the officer clobber the guy but it looks like the officer did choke the jimmy-crack-corn out of him. The guy passed out for a few seconds. Was he gonna swallow evidence?
