Simply put, STOP DOING POLICE WORK IN COOK COUNTY! Federal jury tacks 75 cents onto its $50,000 verdict.

Before reaching their verdict last week, jurors sent a note to the judge asking if they could order the two Chicago police officers to do 100 hours of community service, the victim's lawyer said. The judge denied the request.


A federal jury with a sense of humor found in favor of a Chicago man who alleged that two police officers wrongfully arrested him while he was filling his car tires with air, topping off his $50,000 verdict award with an extra 75 cents — the cost of his interrupted use of the gas station air pump.  Before reaching their verdict last week, jurors sent a note to the judge asking if they could order the two Chicago officers to do 100 hours of community service, the victim's lawyer said. The judge denied the request.

Pares Ratliff, then 23, was driving to a store to buy diapers for his son on a June night in 2009 when he noticed one of his tires was low and stopped at a gas station to fill it up, according to the lawsuit. While he was pumping the air, Officers Brian Murphy and James Carroll approached him and said they had a warrant for his arrest, said Ratliff's lawyer, Jared Kosoglad. When Ratliff replied that was impossible, they accused him of threatening them with the air hose and arrested him, Kosoglad said.

So cops stop the wrong man, claim he threatened him with an air hose, and he gets awarded $50,000 for his trouble.

Not sure where the miscarriage of justice is here. If anything, the jury should have awarded him an extra $50,000 on account of police stupidity.

Did those Cops really arrest the guy for threatening them with a fuckin air-hose? If so, these 2 must really be some over-educated Hair-Gel CPD squirrels.
