If Only Chicago Had Stricter Gun Laws : Woman Gang Raped & Thrown Out 7 Story Window
If only we had stricter gun laws in Chicago.. this wouldn't have happened.... oh wait, they used a knife:
Moral of the story is that morality is gone from Chicago... or at least far too much of it. Guns don't kill people... fawkers like those involved in this case do..
Chicago pays $22.5 MILLION to woman who was gang raped and plummeted from seventh story window after police failed to take proper care of her
City agrees today to give the staggering sum to Christina Eilman who was released from police custody into a high-crime area where she was gang raped and plummeted from a seventh floor window
Eilman, who is bipolar, should have been taken to a mental hospital for an exam but cops ignored NINE phone calls from her parents
The woman, who is now 27-years-old, suffered permanent brain damage from her fall and now needs constant medical attention
The settlement is the largest in city history
The city of Chicago agreed today to pay a record $22.5 million to a woman who was released from police custody in 2006 and instead of being taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, she was released into a high crime area where she was gang raped and plummeted seven stories.
Christina Eilman, was 21-years-old when the crime occurred and she suffered permanent brain damage from the fall and has needed constant medical care ever since.
Eilman, who is bipolar, was taken into police custody at Midway Airport after suffering a mental breakdown on her flight from California.
Rather than bring Eilman to a hospital, police released her after 29 hours in custody, despite her parents calling at least nine times to warn them about her mental health status and that she was having an episode.
Police later testified at a deposition hearing that she was visibly agitated and should have been taken to the hospital. Witnesses said she was throwing herself against the bars in her jail cell.
Eilman, a former UCLA student, was released near a housing project in a crime-ridden neighborhood on the city's notorious South Side when she encountered the sex fiends who attacked her.
She was dressed in just short shorts, a cutoff top and boots and was without her cellphone.
After being gang raped at knifepoint, she either fell or was pushed from a seven-story window, she suffered severe brain trauma and the 27-year-old will not recover.
Iím embarrassed to think that a poor girl like this would have been so callously treated by members of the Chicago Police Department,' Alderman Edward Burke said, according to CBS/Chicago.
Her family had been seeking as much as $100 million in damages for pain and suffering and to cover Eilman's never-ending medical bills.
Gang member Marvin Powell was convicted of abducting Eilman but not sexually assaulting her or causing her to go out the window.
He served part of a 12-year sentence before being paroled last spring.
