Chicago Police Misconduct Lawsuit: Claim Authorities Robbed Apartment And Illegally Detained Them

Chicago Police Misconduct Lawsuit: Brandy Allen And Nicholas Timmons Claim Authorities Robbed Apartment And Illegally Detained Them

A Chicago-area couple is suing local law enforcement agencies, saying officers ransacked their apartment and car looking for drugs but instead stole thousands of dollars’ worth of items.

Brandy Allen and Nicholas Timmons, a couple living together in North Chicago, Ill., filed a federal suit late last month against Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group, a Lake County MEG officer, “unknown agents” of the group and “unknown police officers,” charging they were unlawfully detained and had been robbed by the officers while they were being interrogated, according to court records.

On July 24, as the couple left their apartment to go grocery shopping, their vehicle was pulled over by four officers who were “clad in fatigues and bulletproof vests” and “jumped out of an unmarked SUV” with assault rifles, according to the suit. The couple was ordered out of their van, and when Timmons asked an officer for a reason for the stop, he was allegedly told, “you know what it is for mother f-----.”

Timmons was handcuffed and searched as officers demanded he tell them where drugs and guns were in the car, but he said he had no information about drugs or guns.

One Horrible Rich Person...

Snyder Killed Some Trees; Park Ranger's Career Goes Down in Flames


Dan Snyder couldn’t see the Potomac River from his mansion, so the Washington NFL team’s owner exploited his government connections to do something about it.

Snyder, who’s pegged in Deadspin as a “horrible rich person” cut down 140 trees behind his Maryland estate – even though the trees were on national park property – and wrecked a park ranger’s career in the process.

Deadspin reports that in June of 2004, P. Daniel Smith, National Parks special assistant, and his National Park Service colleagues, which included the C&O Canal’s new interim superintendent, Kevin Brandt, met with Snyder and his attorney at his mansion to work out a deal to remove the trees.

Smith was a special assistant to Fran Mainella, who, in 2001, President Bush tapped to run the NPS. Smith and his colleagues agreed to grant Snyder a special use permit to clear 200 feet of trees on the slope behind his house, on the condition that he replace them with 600 native saplings, according to the Washington Monthly, the magazine that reported the full story. Also reported was the fact that no one had sought the proper permits or commissioned an environmental assessment, and they ignored a recommendation from the park’s horticulture specialist that cutting the trees would have adverse affects on the ecosystem.
