On Friday, white police officer Robert Rialmo, 27, filed a suit against the LeGrier family, whose son he killed less than two months ago, seeking $10 million in damages. The officer claims the black 19-year-old college student attempted to hit him with a baseball bat, swinging it close to the officer's head. This forced him to open fire, killing two and people and wounding one other.
Early on the morning of December 26, Northern Illinois University student Quintonio LeGrier called 911 asking police officers to come to a home on Chicago's West Side. The young man, who was reportedly mentally ill, did not give his name or many details as to why he wanted a police presence. He only said he was being threatened and that an emergency was taking place.
LeGrier and a neighbor, Bettie Jones, 55, were fatally shot by Chicago Police Officer Robert Rialmo minutes later. The teen's father Antonio LeGrier was shot in the chest. but survived.
That "cop" is one sick, twisted M F-er. The family needs to sure him personally, the department, the city, the county, and the state for wrongful death.
The police are under so much pressure. Almost like another battlefield where you had to look a book before shooting.
In the meantime you were badly wounded. My thoughts.
