The Inevitable Lawsuit
- The mother of a 16-year-old boy shot and killed by police during a foot chase last month filed a wrongful-death lawsuit today against the city of Chicago and the police officers involved in the incident.
After the shooting, which occurred the night of July 2, police said Rakeem Nance pointed a gun at officers who were pursuing him through an alley in the 1900 block of South Christiana Avenue. One of the officers fired at Nance, hitting him. He died at a local hospital a short time later.
According to the lawsuit Nance, of the 1900 block of South Troy Street, was shot several times in the back and "was not armed with a gun or weapon of any type" at the time of the shooting.
- The suit was filed for Doris Burford as special administrator of Nance's estate, by the law firm [money grubbing bottom feeders LLC]
Here's where a real superintendent would ignore the "we don't comment on pending litigation" BS and go to town on this deranged segment of society that seeks a payout because they raised an asshole who managed to get killed while being an asshole.
