Chicago police officer who 'sodomised black man with screwdriver' allowed to keep working

A US police officer who was found to have sexually assaulted a man with a screwdriver while another officer watched is still in his job.

A civil court jury decided Chicago police officer Scott Korhonen had committed the assault, while his partner Gerald Lodwich looked on, with the victim, 20-year-old Coprez Coffie, receiving $4m (about £3.2m) in compensation as a result.
But journalist and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King revealed both officers had not been arrested on criminal charges or even sanctioned following an internal police investigation. As a result, neither served time in jail, and both have been allowed to keep working for the force.  
On 28 August 2004, Mr Korhonen and Mr Lodwich pulled over a van in which Mr Coffie, who is black, was riding with a group of friends in Chicago's west side area. The officers searched Mr Coffie, his friends and the van, then let everyone but Mr Coffie leave, alleging he had been involved in a drug deal.
The two men handcuffed Mr Coffie, who Mr King reported was employed as a security guard at a local hotel at the time, and drove him to a nearby alley.
Mr Coffie testified at trial that he was then placed against the officers' unmarked car, still handcuffed, and told to spread his buttocks before Mr Korhonen pulled down his trousers and assaulted him by inserting a screwdriver into his rectum. 
Mr Coffie, who suffered internal injuries and was left bleeding from his rectum, reported the incident when the officers took him to Cook County jail, where he spent a night detained on drug charges.
The next day, Mr Coffie's mother took him to hospital, where a doctor found a tear in his rectum. Chicago police investigators were summoned to the hospital and Mr Coffie gave a second statement.
Chicago police investigators immediately searched Mr Korhonen and Mr Lodwich's car and found three screwdrivers in their glove compartment. Later testing on swabs taken from the glovebox were positive for fecal material.
However, the City's Office of Professional Standards, which researched the claims of officer misconduct, found the allegations could not be sustained. No disciplinary action was taken against Mr Korhonen or Mr Lodwich and a criminal case was not pursued.
The evidence against the two officers was only revisited when Mr Coffie filed a civil action against the department.
On 17 October 2007, after three days of deliberation a nine-person civil jury found Mr Korhonen conducted an “unreasonable search” of Mr Coffie and Mr Lodwich failed to stop it.
They ordered the City of Chicago to pay Mr Coffie a $4 million (£3.2 million) settlement plus nearly $675,000 (around £550,0000) for Mr Coffie's legal fees.
District Court Judge James Holderman, who presided over the hearing, said in court documents there was a “preponderance of evidence” in Mr Coffie's favour.
“This was a clear case,“ he said, ruling that: ”Korhonen unreasonably inserted a screwdriver in Coffie's rectum in violation of Coffie's constitutional rights and that Lodwich knowingly failed to stop Korhonen's unconstitutional conduct.
“In addition, the evidence clearly showed that Korhonen and Lodwich each knowingly testified falsely at the trial.”
Mr Coffie told journalists at the time: “Justice was served, it was. Now you see what's going on. It's put to the light."
His lawyer Jonathan Loevy described the case as a “black eye” for the police department. 
Mr Korhonen and Mr Lowich continue to be employed by the Chicago Police Department, Mr King revealed. 
According to the journalist, Mr Lodwich was paid $90,618 by the city last year and Mr Korhonen made $87,384.
Mr King said: “The more I do this work, researching and telling stories of injustice, the more I learn just how unjust this country truly is.“ 
He prefaced his report by saying that he is contacted by hundreds of families on a daily basis to report incidents of police brutality, but he found Mr Coffie's case to be “so far fetched, so outrageous, so ridiculously unjust, so extreme” that he intially suspected it might be a hoax.
It was not until he reviewed court documents that he came to believe the story.

Only problem with this case is that it didn't happen. When they brought this guy into the station and into the gang office he sat directly across from the Sgt. while being processed and never said a word about any Police abuse. Never said anything to the lockup keeper either. Nor the wagon men that took him to 26th Street. Nor anyone at 26th Street either. Never asked anyone to go to the hospital. It wasn't until his release that he told his mother his tale. He and his "witness were also impeached on the stand. His witness who said he saw the whole thing and confirmed what Coffee said admitted under cross examination that not only did he NOT see anything, that he was coached by the plaintiff's attorneys and told what to say.
This case was another example of the corruption and incompetence that permeates the criminal justice system in Chicago not only at the state or local level but at the federal level as well. As a result of that two fine and courageous Chicago Police Officers had their careers and reputations tarnished.

Maybe the cop wanted to be a veterinarian. Why would you want to stick something up a gorillas ass? Why would you save an object u stuck up its ass? I find this story baffling.

Comman Sense said...

If anyone believes this happened as described, they need to have their head examined.

Let me offer the more plausible alternative: The offender attempted (poorly) to hide his drugs down his pants. The officers recovered said drugs with a screw driver from their glove box, not wanting to touch said scumbag any more than they had to.

The offender, faced with jail time and having a damaged rectum from a lifestyle he also hides, decides on a plot to save his image and make a few bucks on the side. The initial investigation figures this out in short order and cuts their losses.

Now here we are in this anti police frenzy. Let's bring up this beef because it's so salacious. It will go viral despite the fact that it is absolute nonsense.

Wtf, I'll take a screwdriver up my ass for $4 million, he probably got ass raped in county.

I side with the coppers probably 99% of the time, but this is way over the top. These two asshats should be locked up.

OK...maybe a few bad cops out there, but what happened to you talking about nigger shit? Personally I would like to exterminate them all. It is hard for me to feel sorry for niggers anymore seeing how evil they are. I say return evil for evil. Kill the motherfuckers.

Lets say the 2 coppers actually did the dirty on the coons booty.

Who the fuck trained these guys?

Ok it was 2004 and there were still some competent trainers still left on the job from an earlier era who knew the ins and outs - need I explain further?

Never ever keep the offending item in your possession! Loose it or destroy it!

Another item is the screw drivers tested positive for fecal matter, whose fecal matter, some 4 legged dog's - anyone knows there should have been a DNA test to determine whose fecal matter it was. Human, Animal, Ape or feral coon.

Then again I am privy to knowledge of a certain incident many years ago where someone was whooped by someone and then the department ran a DNA test on the object submitted as the weapon and low and behold the submitted substitute weapon which was never near the alleged victim proved positive with the "victims" blood.

Well those guys now are working other jobs. Not because they did the action but because the department lied on the DNA test for a politically charged incident.

If this is true, the two CPD officers should be aware of former NYPD 70th Pct. PO Justin Volpe who was convicted of sodomizing a Haitian immigrant named Abner Louima with a broomstick back in 2007.

Fired Brooklyn PO Volpe remains in a North Carolina federal prison, his earliest parole date being in 2025.

Yep, when it comes to 'internet tough guys,' you don't get much more badass then Shaun King. This Oreo cookie is a total pussy. Everyone should make fake Facebook accounts and bombard his social media site. He would probably have a heart attack.

Without the internet, this uppity shine box would be obscure. Instead, he gets to spout his stupid and arrogant opinions as if he is some profound intellectual.

As far as the coppers go, they will probably get old C.R.s reopened against them and will probably have to fight to keep their jobs. Sorry, but no arrest is worth it if you have to look up a yard ape's ass for the dope. If the niggers want to deal and use drugs that bad, then let them. Drugs to the moon crickets is like small pox to the Indians. Let those motherfuckers kill themselves off.

No chance the nigger tore his asshole while shoving the dope there to hide it from the police.. and no chance that the shit on the screwdriver was used to pick up the shit stained bag when it fell out of the chimps ass.
