CHICAGO (CN) - A family claims Chicago police broke into their house, urinated on their mail, spit in the coffee maker, stomped and slapped them and told them "You've been punk'd," while searching for someone who had not lived there for at least a year.
South Side residents Estella Walker, Ray Robinson Sr., Ray Robinson Jr., George Graham and Cornelius Burns sued the City of Chicago, Officer Sergio Martinez, and other unnamed officers in the Federal Court. Walker is Robinson Sr.'s wife; Burns is their landlord.
The Robinsons say they were watching TV peacefully at home on March 2, 2011. Robinson Sr. is over 50 years old and walks with a cane. Graham is a recovering stroke victim.
"Unbeknownst to plaintiffs, earlier that same day, the Chicago Police Department obtained a search warrant to search for an individual named 'Mike,' a male black, 30 years of age, 6'00" in height, and 230 pounds and the first floor apartment at [their address] to look for contraband, particularly for 'crack cocaine.'"
