Family suing cops over alleged beating
BY STEVE PATTERSON Staff Reporter
Members of a Chicago family that includes an 11-year-old girl said they were beaten by Chicago Police officers and called racial slurs after a traffic stop last year.
Anton Johnson, his mother, Welsie Johnson, sisters Angela and Sabrina Johnson, and his girlfriend, Shawntavia Brazil, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Chicago Police Department and eight officers they claim abused them.
Attorney Scott Kummer said all of them, including 11-year-old Sabrina, were arrested for disorderly conduct after the August 2005 incident near their home in the 4000 block of 21st Street.
All relatives may face charges
It began, the lawsuit says, when police pulled over a car Anton Johnson was riding in, to investigate if it was stolen.
He was released, but argued with officers over the way they had treated him at the time he was stopped.
Words were exchanged, the suit says, and Johnson was beaten and cuffed. His family then intervened and they, too, were beaten and called names, according to the lawsuit.
Criminal charges are pending against all the relatives.
A police spokeswoman said officials haven't seen the complaint and can't comment pending an investigation.

some people believe they don't have to obey an officer when the officer has a lawful reason to be in their business. some people don't know how to act. fine citizens i'm sorry if i'm not officer friendly all the time but my partner and i will go home. i'm as nice as you let me be and as hard as i got to be to accomplish that.
