Washington Park officer accused of 'tasing' handcuffed women

WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Court documents show a Washington Park police officer was accused of violating a woman’s civil rights by allegedly arresting her with no justification, then shooting her twice with a taser while she was handcuffed and sitting in the back of a police car.
News 4 has also confirmed that there are currently several open investigations into similar allegations against Officer Antwan Stith.

The lawsuit filed claims, on July 12, 2010, Stith and other officers went to a house to purportedly investigate an assault complaint.
While there, the suit says Officer Stith, “without provocation or any legal justification, arrested and handcuffed” Shannon Tugle and “threw her in the back of a squad car.” While Tugle sat defenseless in the back of the police car, the suit alleges Stith “tasered her twice, while she was handcuffed, causing severe physical damage.”

The lawsuit goes on to accuse Stith of lying to cover up what he did by claiming Tugle was resisting. The suit asked for $50,000, and after two years of legal wrangling, both sides agreed to an out of court settlement of $10,000. The lawsuit was then dropped.


These assholes… Are assholes.

I think that we're far beyond the point of ridiculousness here…

Diego Palacios, NYPD Officer, Charged With Lying About Driver Trying To Run Him Down

An NYPD officer has been indicted on felony charges for lying in an official police report about a man trying to run him down with his car, an alleged lie that landed the innocent homeowner in jail for three nights.

In February, 30-year old Officer Diego Palacios claimed John Hockenjos, an MTA engineer living in Sheepshead Bay, attempted to run Palacios down at "a high rate of speed" which Palacios reported caused him to "jump out of the way to avoid being hit by defendant’s vehicle.”

But a surveillance video later surfaced showing Hockenjos slowly pulling into his driveway while Palacios stood still-- a far cry from the life-threatening scenario the officer painted.

Hockenjos was exonerated nearly a month after his February 5 arrest. He told The Daily News, "I'm traumatized. It was the worst experience of my entire life."

Thursday's indictment charges Palacios with falsifying records and five types of lying which could put him behind bars for four years.

Hockenjos is reportedly planning to sue both Palacios and the city.
