The Cost of Judging by Character in Chicagoland: $22.5 Million


"...might as well have released her into the lions’ den at Brookfield Zoo”-- No, black-areas of Chicago are far more dangerous...
Nothing much to say about life in increasingly non-white Chicago, a vision of the future for all of America where white people have virtually no say in the government (save funding it through ever-greater taxes), that can be said in this one article [City to pay $22.5 million to bipolar woman released in high-crime area, Chicago Sun-Times, 1-15-13]:
Chicago taxpayers will spend $22.5 million to compensate a mentally-ill California woman who was arrested and held overnight, then released in a high-crime neighborhood, where she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted before falling from a seventh-floor window of a CHA high-rise.

The settlement to Christina Eilman, now 27, is one of the largest to a single plaintiff in Chicago history — and $4.5 million more than the $18 million paid to the family of LaTanya Haggerty, one of two unarmed civilians shot to death by Chicago Police in 1999 after high-speed chases during the same summer weekend.
The $22.5 million settlement is on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the City Council’s Finance Committee, which must approve the payment.
A former UCLA student, Eilman was arrested in May 2006 after allegedly creating a disturbance at Midway Airport. At the time, she was suffering from a bi-polar breakdown.
She was taken to the Wentworth District police station, 5101 S. Wentworth, where she was held overnight and continued to behave erratically.
The following day, despite frantic calls from her parents, Eilman was released without assistance or instruction into a high-crime neighborhood while dressed in short shorts and a cut-off top.
She was subsequently lured into the last remaining high-rise at the Robert Taylor homes, where she was sexually assaulted before falling from a seventh-floor window.
Eilman suffered a devastating brain injury and several broken bones, including a shattered pelvis. She now requires around-the-clock care and lives with her parents in California.
City attorneys had initially argued that Chicago Police officers were not responsible for Eilman’s injuries and that the then-21-year-old woman seemed cogent when a police sergeant interviewed her after her arrest.
But that was before several other police officers gave sworn depositions in the case saying they saw signs of the young woman’s mental illness.
The other officers also acknowledged under oath that a supervisor had ordered arresting officers to take Eilman to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation, but that there was no vehicle available for the transport.
An even more devastating blow to the city’s case came last spring.
That’s when a federal appeals court rejected the city’s attempt to dismiss the case and said police “might as well have released her into the lions’ den at Brookfield Zoo” when they ignored frantic calls from Eilman’s parents and allowed the young woman to leave without assistance in the high-crime neighborhood.
In the federal appeals court ruling that turned about to be the death knell of the city’s case, Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook did not mince his words in talking about the cavalier disregard that Chicago Police officers exhibited for Eilman’s safety before her release.
“She was lost, unable to appreciate her danger and dressed in a manner to attract attention,” Easterbrook wrote last spring.
“She is white and well-off while the local population is predominantly black and not affluent, causing her to stand out as a person unfamiliar with the environment and, thus, a potential target for crime.”

"Released her into a lions' den... 'white and well-off while the local population is predominantly black...'"? Talk about an understanding of the type of environment black people create, though I think comparing an all-black area in Chicago to a lions den is an affront to zoo animals who have been tamed.

So, do you think Chicago will have to borrow the money to settle this suit - all because we refuse to acknowledge race - just as they did because black people can't pass a firefighter exam
[City To Borrow Nearly $80M To Settle 1995 Firefighters’ Exam Lawsuit, CBS Chicago, 1-23-12]?

The guy convicted of the crime, Marvin Powell, is out of prison already and is a free man stalking the streets right now. He served only six years. The woman was accosted by a group yet he's the only one convicted. She "plummeted" from the seventh floor? Is that a polite way of saying she was thrown off? They keep talking about high-crime areas when what they really should be saying is black area.

Releasing a mentally impaired white lady into a groid infested hellhole shows monumental stupidity on the part of the police and a reckless disregard for her safety. I'm glad the Judge pointed that out.
However, I have no doubt the decision will be contested as libtards and blacks scream the Judge is biased and racist for telling the truth.

Nope, they'll appeal it until the money's all gone.

The only ones who win in cases like these are the lawyers.

So the police screw up and blacks try to kill her. But white taxpayers (victim) are on the hook to pay the $22.5 million.

Seems wrong to me.

When one speaks of "the police" in Chicago, it's no longer an image of big, strong Italians, Poles, and Irishmen. Instead, CPD today is full of affirmative action "Canadians" who couldn't give two s***s about some demented White girl.

My family and I used to go to ShitCongo for cultural and sporting events. With red light cameras, speed cameras, draconian anti-gun laws, and the overwhelming ghettoization becoming the norm, we don't set foot within the city limits.

This is an actual response by a white liberal woman to my statement about black crime rates on Huffpo.

Nope, sorry, wrong. Blacks commit crimes at the same rate as the white population. But blacks are convicted and sentenced to prison at much greater rates--there's a difference which YOU'RE unwilling to admit.

According to this woman, there would be no danger to a white girl walking through a black ghetto. Or the danger would be no more than walking through a white middle class suburb. Endless propaganda and lies from liberal media have really done a number on white women.

The 22.5 million should be taken from welfare, ebt and other gibsmedat funds. Let the blacks pay for the behavior of their own. Until that happens, they aren't going to give a damn.

Tuesday night when they were involved in accidents involving separate trains inside an East Harlem train station.


Police Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Paul Browne said it started on a No. 5 train on the uptown express tracks.

1 Killed, 1 Injured In Separate Accidents At Same Subway Station


Around 4 p.m., a man, who was believed to be homeless and in his 50s, found himself on the tracks in the confines of the 125th Street station for unknown reasons.

The man was apparently struck and injured by the 5 as he tried to get back onto the platform, though it’s possible he actually injured himself when he fell because police told 1010 WINS the man was so drunk that he did not even remember being on the tracks. Either way, he suffered a broken pelvis and gashes to his buttocks and right leg, and was reported in serious, but stable condition at an area hospital.

Ten minutes later, the other 31-year-old man, who was said to be from the Bronx and had been on a northbound No. 6 train across the platform, decided to step between two cars to defecate.

“When he’s doing that, he falls into the track bed and is killed by the same train he is on,” Browne said.

Ask her if she lives in a black neighborhood, and if not why not, if there's nothing to fear. This idiot no doubt lives in the whitest area of her town. Liberals are such hypocrites I can hardly believe it.

Chicago, home to Obama, Farrakan, Jarrett, Axelrod, Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, Ayers, Emanuel, Rev. Wright. With those characters and the negro violence, Chicago seems to be an actual hell on earth.

There's a simple solution to the type of behavior the cops showed here. When they do something that actually warrants a massive monetary award, not some made up bullshit, but an actual offense, then that $22 million comes straight out of their retirement funds. The taxpayers aren't forced to pay it, all the cops pay it from their pensions. That will solve the problem, pronto.

If that's true, then why are MURDER rates higher in black areas than in white areas? Does this cow think that whites are going into black areas and shooting up the negroes, then sneaking back into their gated communities? She probably does. Anything to hate herself and her own race.

Californian said...

Some more thoughts on the Color of Crime:

If whites commit crimes at the same rate as blacks, but are convicted less, this means:

(1) There are a lot of crimes committed by whites which have not been closed out, Presumably, the crime victims have not reported these crimes, or charges have not been filed or have been dropped.

Or:

(2) A lot of blacks have been jailed for crimes committed by whites.

Now, is there any evidence that either of the above are the case?

Even if we assume that blacks are convicted at a higher rate than whites--so what? Since whites are more likely to commit crimes against other whites, then this means that black communities would be relatively safer than white, since more black criminals are being locked up.

Anyone care to comment on the relative safety of black communities versus white (ahem, ahem)?

Criminal victimization surveys indicate that blacks commit far more violent crime than whites. Remember a while back when those stats were bouncing around showing that the overwhelming number of inter-racial rapes were black-on-white? Again, if this is not correct, can anyone provide any evidence that there are white perpetrators out there who have not been reported/arrests/convicted?

A couple years back, there was a website called Guy White which dealt with racial issues. Guy White seemed to be involved in the criminal justice system. He pointed out something: crime rates are so high in black areas that prosecutors are overloaded. So they are more likely to plea bargain cases from felonies down to misdemeanors. But a crime in a white area is a rare event, and so is more likely to be fully prosecuted. And we might also look at "Great White Defendant" situations like the Duke U false rape charge case.

We can also look at big ticket items like urban riots, flash mobbing and gang banging. Blacks commit a disproportionate amount of these crimes.

In any event, the evidence for higher rates of criminality among blacks is fairly well presented in the URLS in my prior post. When faced with a reality that does not match up to the ideology, DWLs will reinterpret the reality to match the delusion. And will keep on doing until being dragged out of their car on Beat Whitey Night.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned that this is a clear cut case of the police willfully and maliciously endangering the life of an American citizen. The "police" released her into that area of Chicago obviously KNOWING that she would be raped, assaulted, and possibly murdered. The police wanted this White girl from California to suffer for the crime of being White. There is no other conclusion one can make. The police know what goes on in that "neigborHOOD" and how the residents feel about "The Man." This was no different than chumming the waters in the hopes of luring out killer great white sharks. There is no word in the English language to describe this type of behavior. This is a prime example of why White people should never have to endure the horrors of the black undertow. MEMO to the Liberals : They hate White people so much that they will intentionally send us to our deaths in high crime "urban" areas.

OT - I noticed on another thread that someone mentioned the murder of Chinese students at USC. Well in response to that killing and the Halloween shooting (both committed by africans) USC has now locked down the campus from 9 P.M. to 6 A.M. with portable fencing going up at the entrances to campus. Anyone wishing to enter is stopped by security and has to show I.D. For those that don't know, USC is in south central LA, basically in the heart of the black ghetto. The ghetto dwellers cut across the USC campus every day and night instead of walking all the way around campus to get to their destinations. The ghetto dwellers are NOT happy that they can no longer cut across the USC campus with impunity at night. Now I know what you next question is going to be, WHY did they build USC next to the african/mexican ghetto? The answer is that USC was built in 1880 and up until the late 1940s that area around USC was middle-upper class. Then all the africans poured in to work the factory jobs during WW2 and they never left, instead they formed communities in downtown LA and slowly turned the place into a nice black ghetto, the kind White people flee.

I propose and easy experiment for this woman. First the control she walks through a 98% White Mid West town at 2am dressed provocatively. Now for the experiment she does the same in a 98% black community, say Detroit.Scientists will observe and record from afar.

I for one would love to see this experiment.

In response to the story these police who decided to drop this women off should be charged by the DA with Negligent Homicide. They knew harm would befall her they absolutely knew it.

I was arrested for a simple traffic warrant. When brought into the police station i glanced at the holding tank. It held 35 to 40 bottom of the barrel ghetto moon crickets. I asked the Negro arresting officer if he was really going to place me in the holding tank. He looked and said "no,i'll put you over here". It was a glass walled room with a door that didnt lock. The "moon crickets" all erupted, bitching because i wasnt going to be their bitch. When a bail bondsmen came to bail one of them out he seen me and bypassed the tank and took care of me first. Causing another eruption of ooks and eeks from the holding tank. At which point the desk SGT. told them to STFU! or none of them would be bonded out. Ishudder to think of what would have happened if they would have placed me in that animal cage.

I used to go by USC frequently, and you could see the once great period houses surrounding the campus.

Blacks are convicted and sentenced at a much lower rate than whites. Chicago only has a less than 25% closure rate for homicides. Those are the gang related ones, the 'no-snitchin" ones. Many blacks have gotten away with murder and other crimes. These blacks who have gotten away with murder, rape, burglary, robbery, etc, are walking around amongst us. It could be the one sitting next to you on the bus or passing you by on the street or living down the street from you. They're all over.

Overwhelming? Statistically there are zero white-on-black rapes. That's not to say that they don't happen, but that they round off to zero.

(CBS) – The Emanuel administration said Tuesday it will essentially borrow money to compensate thousands of African-Americans who were passed over by the city’s firefighter entrance exam in 1995, which courts have ruled was discriminatory.

WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the city agreed last year to hire 111 African Americans, who had been bypassed for jobs in 1995 due to the flawed entrance exam.

Originally, officials estimated it would cost the city $30 million to $40 million in damages to nearly 6,000 others who would not get the opportunity for a firefighter job.

Snowman,

I read the article and the comments about locking USC down so the "community" can't free roam through campus at night victimizing the students.

I have to say the comments were very good. About 95% in support of the enhanced security.

It's always nice to see someone tell blacks NO! and not back down when the usual whining from their lib enablers start.

We only have to tell the truth, while liberals must constantly strain to reshape the world to conform to their biases and delusions. Eventually their entire sand castle will crumble under the waves of reason.

I believe it. In addition to the white guilt phenomenon that results in lenient treatment of black criminals and wrong-doers of all kinds on a systemic, societal basis, Blacks are also able to game the system through set-aside verdicts from black jurors and favoritism by black police officers, evidence techs, prosecutors, and judges.

To determine the truth from a Liberal's statements, you usually only need to invert them by 180°. Thus, if a Liberal claims that Blacks commit crimes at the same rate as Whites and are prosecuted at higher rates than Whites, the truth will be – as it certainly is in this case – that Blacks commit crimes at higher rates than Whites and are prosecuted and jailed at lower rates than Whites.

A wall isn't so encouraging. It would be nice to see some more proactive and 'offensive' steps taken. A civil rights protest on campus maybe to speak out against black on everyone violence. A cracker and chink walk perhaps.
Something more than locking ourselves in or running.

I read it in the chicago tribune right when the story broke. i have not been able to find it. google "eilman we don't mix with white people" that touches on the subject of black people not helping her. a subject that never made the limelight and that part of the story was in the media for only a couple of hours and never mentioned again to my recollection.

If American Blacks had their own country and its "footsoldiers" did to White civilians what they currently do, they would be prosecuted for war crimes.  Attacking civilians is terrorism.  Collective punishment is a crime against humanity.

Yet we let them off the hook, not even mentioning the war-crimes and collective punishment aspect.  Or rather, the corrupt liberal MSM does.  Isn't that interesting?
