Chicago police accused of abuse - AGAIN!

 CHICAGO (CN) - Two men claim in court that Chicago police battered, strip-searched and falsely charged them of crimes they did not commit because they used cellphones to videotape a police officer who was driving on the wrong side of the road when he hit and injured a motorcyclist.
     Benjamin Perez and Bobby Milton sued Chicago and nine police officers in Federal Court.
     The men say they were talking outside with some friends in an early morning in August 2011 when a friend rode by on a motorcycle, heading south on Chicago Avenue.
     "At the same time, defendant Captain [Kevin Navarro] was driving a marked Chicago Police Department vehicle, an SUV, northbound on South Chicago Avenue in the wrong lane of traffic, heading northbound in the southbound lane," according to the complaint.
     "Defendant Captain drove his police vehicle into plaintiffs' friend, who was traveling southbound on his motorcycle, causing plaintiffs' friend to suffer serious injury."
     Numerous police officers arrived quickly.
     "Defendant officers observed plaintiffs using their cell phones to record the collision scene, and immediately took plaintiff Perez's cell phone and placed handcuffs on him, taking him into custody even though Perez was not doing anything illegal," the complaint states.

Why would anyone be surprised at this in Chicago? That is the NORM.
