Headline Chicago: “Man announces lawsuit for wrongful police shooting. Minutes later, he’s arrested for murder.”
Suing cops (& cities with ‘deep pockets’) at hard-working taxpayer expense is all the rage. This guy already is a convicted felon for drugs & guns, had an outstanding warrant, was let off easy last time (probation), ran from cops this time & pulled a gun on the officers before being shot.
