In Carpentersville, a northern suburb in Illinois, police were caught in the act of —literally—breaking and entering, and then hemming a young dude up. In his own home. In captured video footage, an unarmed and seemingly unassuming year-old boy was accosted by a police officer, who charged through the doorway in search of a young girl, who ended up not being there.
Now, the family is suing the po-po for raiding their home without a search warrant while their minor son was home alone. The encounter occurred in June and was reportedly the result of a search for a missing girl, who is friends with the boy. As one of the plainclothes cops searched the premises, there was unprovoked, forceful physical contact with the teen, with one officer grabbing his neck and then throwing him down on the couch and hemming him up.
The alleged missing girl—who has not been identified—was not at the home, but the officers still handcuffed and arrested the boy, whose mother was at work. But forcible physical contact ensued rather swiftly, with the officer aggressively mushing the teen and throwing him on the couch, hemming him up. They were acting like R. Kelly was in the mix—oh, but that allegedly went on for years without any law and order.
The cops reportedly searched the home a day earlier looking for the girl, who is believed to have run away from her home. The family admitted that she did come to their home and was put in an Uber by the teen and ended up back at her home that very afternoon. Police were shown a record of the ride but still returned the next day to bring the pain. They are minors. Carpentersville police officials are claiming to just be hearing about the lawsuit.
Per a statement:. The Village of Carpentersville and its Police Department have just learned of the lawsuit, and, as such, we are not prepared to make a statement as to the specific allegations at this point. However, the Village takes all matters involving police interactions with the public seriously. What is known is that the police were responding to a report of a missing female minor during the alleged incident.
At this point, the investigation is ongoing. The Village will need further time to review the lawsuit as well as the outcome of the third-party investigation before making any additional comment. Hailing from "the thorough borough" of Brooklyn, Mr. The A. Shop Subscribe.

WLS -- A family in north suburban Carpentersville is suing police officers, claiming they raided their home without a search warrant while their teenage son was home alone.

Metra, Amtrak salute essential workers with SoundTheHorn campaign.Matt Agorist August 24, Carpentersville, IL — A family is suing and will undoubtedly win after extremely infuriating video captured two police officers illegally entering their home and choking a year-old boy who was home alone.
However, the video clearly shows that the officer opened the door himself. When the boy told the officers he was uncomfortable with them being there without his mother being home, instead of leaving, they attacked him.
The officers then smash their way into the home, knocking the boy over the couch as he falls backward. One officer then attacks the boy, throwing him down on the couch and choking him. As one officer holds the boy down and continues to choke him, another illegally searches the home.
The officer is seen on video grabbing the boy by his throat multiple times and throwing him to the couch. According to the family, the home invasion by criminal cops happened in June. Officers said they were looking for a missing girl who had run away from home.
Despite barging into the home and attacking the year-old boy, police did not find the girl. They did however illegally arrest the boy. The boy even admitted to police the day before that the girl had visited him.
He showed them the Uber ride that he paid for to get her to a destination. Also, the day before this home invasion, other officers visited the home and searched it, confirming the girl was not there and that the boy had purchased her an Uber ride.
They are minors. The illegal raid, the child abuse, the unlawful search and arrest — all of it — was done in vain. As for the officers, we have seen no record of their discipline in this incident. The department never made a statement on the matter until they found out they were being sued over it. This week, Carpentersville officials released a statement, saying:.Purportedly searching for a missing girl, a cop barged into a house in Carpentersville, Illinois, without a warrant and choked a teenage boy who was home alone.
The attack was captured on video and the family is suing. In video of the raid, the year-old boy, who wishes to remain anonymous, was knocked off his feet by the officer, who charges through the doorway.
As the officer's partner searches upstairs, there's more grabbing and pushing. Twice the officer grabs the boy's neck, and then he throws him on the couch again. The missing girl is not at the home, but the officers handcuff and arrest the boy, whose mother is at work.
The Washington Post reports that the cops arrested the boy only after he told them they were being recorded on video. An undercover cop in Houston shot a man who he claims approached his car, made terroristic threats, then reached for a gun. The man, Keith Martin, 45, says he was simply offering to clean his car.
