Complaint filed against Chicago Police for wrongly raiding same house 3 times in 4 months

A federal civil rights complaint has been filed on Friday claiming that Chicago police has wrongly raided the same home three times over the course of four months. The complaint is filed against the city and the Chicago Police Department.

The complaint is filed on behalf of Krystal Archie and her three children: 14-year-old Savannah, 11-year-old Telia and 7-year-old Jhaimarion. These details were shared by the statement from Archie’s attorney Al Holfeld. They say that the raids had taken place in February, April and May of this year. The raids had taken place in the same apartment in the city’s Woodlawn neighborhood.

According to the complaint, the raids were executed using “unverified information on bad search warrants.” Chicago police was approached for comments on the complaint but they didn’t immediately respond. The attorney say that in one of the raid, Archie was working nearby and her oldest daughter was looking after the two younger siblings as police rushed through the apartment.

They had ordered all the three children “lie face down on the floor.” They yelled at them as they “pointed assault rifles point-blank at their heads.” The attorney say that in that raid as the children were lying on the floor, one of the officer had put his foot on the middle of Savannah’s back, pointed his gun at her head and face, then began handcuffing her, “stopping only when she pleaded that she was only 14 years old.”

The complaint also says that no contraband was found in all the three raids. Neither Archie nor her children were arrested or charged with any crimes. According to law department spokesperson Bill McCaffrey, the city “has yet to receive the lawsuit and cannot comment on pending litigation.”
