We previously watched this video of Dolton, Ill. police officer Christopher Lloyd, 38, beating a 15-year-old special needs student for failing to tuck in his shirt. Now, it turns out that Lloyd has been arrested in Indiana on an unrelated rape charge and previously shot the husband of his ex-wfie in front of their children. He has resigned from the police force after the beating of Marshawn Pitts, here.
Lloyd was arrested last month and charged with the sexual assault of an acquaintance in her home by holding a pillow over her face and previously threatening her with a knife.
He is also being sued by his ex-wife, Nicole McKinney after he killed her husband Cornel McKinney in front of their children outside their home. He shot McKinney 24 times but was found to have acted in self-defense by police investigators and allowed to resume police work.
The City of Dolton may want to beef up the litigation fund.

radly Balko (The Agitator) http://www.theagitator.com/ has more to say on this incident.
Packratt at Injustice Everywhere http://www.injusticeeverywhere.com/ has a post suggesting that this is not an isolated incident, that the Dolton police department has an abnormally and extremely high rate of officer misconduct.

It really is a great book. And again, sorry for my craptacular typing/spelling.
Brutal, here it is:
Courtroom three hundred and two By Steve Bogira, ISBN 0679752064.
Holy shit seamus, all I could find is this Chicago Trib article from 1999. Please find out the book title, thanks.
Yeah, sorry, I take my que on the slopy typing from Turley. The Cook County State’s Attorney does handle the largest court system in the country. The way it’s layed out here makes it bigger than N.Y. or L.A., so there’s that and the problems inherent. And the political culture here is from the 8th century. When our current mayor was the State’s Attorney they had a contest in the office called “Niggers by the pound” wherein the Asst. State’s Attys would see who could send the most African-Americans to jail in a year by weight. Most of these people are now judges here, and like I said their boss is the mayor. Everybody knows about this stuff. This town and county are a mess. It’s (sadly) a good thing we didn’t get the Olympics.
Many of the African-American politicians that run the county government, as opposed to the city which is run Daley, are even worse than he is. There was a really good book written about the Cook County justice system that came out about 3 years ago. It’s called “Room 303” or something to that effect. Several of those in the book are friends of mine. When people I know who don’t work here or aren’t attorneys read the book they’re genrally horrified. When people who worked in the system here read it they all just shrugged their shoulders and said, “yup”. It was a very well reviewed book and have had absolutely no effect on this place. I think the author thought he was writting another “The Jungle”. And he did. But no one cared.
What’s up with the State’s Attorney under serving these communities?
This particular cop previously worked in the nearby suburb of Robbins.
’suffling’ s/b shuffling I tink.
“All these little polcie departments act like the Catholic Church suffling around child molesters.”
I dont know what ‘suffling’ is, but I think you nailed this on the head. What a disgrace.
There are several once-nice-now-unfortunately-scummy suberbs south of the city of Chicago. Dolton is one of them. I’ve had several cases with officers with horrible disciplinary records from one burb who just transfer to another. All these little polcie departments act like the Catholic Church suffling around child molesters. The State’s Attorney knows about this, and, could give a flying f_ _ k.
He has the look of a genius.
How does someone like this ever get to become a police officer? Is there no background check?
It was the seldom seen on the street Colt Peacemaker 24-shot Revolver, affectionately known as “The Boat Anchor” or “The Steel Wheel”. While it has good stopping power like any .45 caliber weapon, it is more notorious for inflicting broken foot bones on upon the owners themselves when they attempted quick draw tricks.
He shot McKinney 24 times but was found to have acted in self-defense…..
And to think Barney only got one trusty rusty bullet. To shoot or not to shoot that is the question, to shoot 24 times and have it ruled self defense, I only ask why? If he shot a man 25 times would that have been excessive force?
Is that because we have 24 hours in a day? I guess 24 is a rational number to them but so is 25. I am at a loss.
He did get booted, finally.
This case begs the question “how do they screen cadets who will have the backing of the law”.
Sounds like they put names in a hat then randomly select someone.
Dollars to donuts this guy was an animal abuser early on:
Several years ago, there was a case in Southern California in which a man’s self-defense claim fell apart because he reloaded his weapon after emptying a clip into someone and proceeded to fire a few more rounds into the guy.
I’d like to know what type of firearm officer Lloyd was using when he shot a man 24 times.
