A Chicago cop who was sued for beating a black woman while she was … motorist Patassa Johnson while she was in handcuffs back in 2013.
The city of Chicago is expected to pay $185,000 to settle a case over an incident where Chicago police officer George Granias allegedly beat motorist Patassa Johnson while she was in handcuffs back in 2013. Johnson’s lawyers said they uncovered the domain names while researching the case.
Attorneys uncovered domain names bought by Granias that begin with the N-word – for example, “n**gadown.com,” “niggerific,” Niggauns,” in addition to sites like “murdertech.com,” “necroarmy.com,” and in a not so subtle dis to Illinois’ former governor, “patquinnsucks.com.”
“His hobby is apparently buying names of racist websites,” the attorney says.
Shiller said Granias’ past record, which involves other complaints of police brutality, including a case confirmed by Chicago police investigators in which Granias beat a minor and banged his head against the wall, is grounds to have him terminated.
“When you look at what he did in this case, in conjunction with his disciplinary record, in conjunction with this bizarre hobby of buying racist and kind of pornographic domain names, this is not somebody who should be a sergeant in the police department,” he said.
On her personal blog, Johnson said she hopes her case will lead to a change in police tactics.
“Although I will be compensated for my pain and suffering, I am not happy. A price will never replace the damage that this has caused me. I am trying to push past this, but it is hard,” she wrote. “If these cops are never held responsible for their wrong doing, things will never change. I hope my case can make a difference.”
