Woman sues Chicago police for dragging her out of car by her hair

A black woman has sued the Chicago police for allegedly ’violating her rights and leaving her blind in one eye.’ Mia Wright, 25, and four of her family members claim their civil rights were violated and left her blind in one eye when a cop grabbed her hair and dragged her out of her car, in May. During the incident, police broke a glass of the car and a flying piece hit her on one eye.

According to the articles, they were arrested during George Floyd riots and they claim to have been at the mall to shop for a birthday not realizing the riots closed the mall. Reporting only talks about video showing officers huddling and then moving to the car to arrest, claiming the officers shouted profanities at her while removing her from the vehicle. No mention of how long the vehicle was there which might shed light on the truth.

They were sitting in the parking & cops came asking them to get out of car & show hands and they wouldn't get out of the car. They kept repeating the commands and they continued to refuse instead shouting back that they don't have to obey their commands. Just another case of another "black" person with an attitude and stupidity that doesn't want to obey cops.

Cha-ching another cop lottery drop. Who needs to defund them when they doing a pretty good job of defunding their selves. Cops just had cart blanch for so long they're have some difficulty adjusting to operating lawfully and responsibly under today's level of scrutiny. Before what the cops said happened was considered fact but thankfully not anymore. Document your life.

Very disturbing video, a mob of cops swinging batons at a car full of five family members because they suspect they looted a store. Then they confiscate the vehicle, find nothing and charge one of the car’s occupants (who is now partially blind because of flying glass) with disorderly conduct. This is justice. https://youtu.be/SmjGbcoNynQ

It amuses me so to see all of these comments saying ‘well, they should have just complied and listened to authority and this would not have happened.’ These are some of the same posters who adamantly argue that we should not ‘just listen to authorites’ who ask us to wear masks. Why should POC comply with cops who have a history of using disproportionate amounts of violence towards them? Because they should simply comply with authority? Well if that is the case why can’t people comply with authority’s request of wearing a mask? The family are the victims here—-not the cops! Stop defending real authoritarian actions like cops who assault innocent citizens when you waste time fighting faux authoritarians who simply want to protect you and your fellow citizens during a GD pandemic.

Ffs.. get out of your car if the cops ask you to. Especially at the scene of a riot. If you haven't committed a crime they will let you go. But noooo.. let's resist and refuse to comply. This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with stüpïdïty.

Why won’t the blacks comply with law enforcement? Why do they always have an attitude? This doesn’t seem to affect any other groups of people in the country...

Could you imagine if we had some kind of subsection of the police designed for non violent altercations? Its almost as if we should defund the police and use those funds to give to a unit of nonviolent responders.
