A 13-year-old Chicago student athlete says he was brutalized by Waukegan Police last month, and now there is a federal lawsuit being filed.

According to Mike Parker of CBS 2, the eighth-grade honor student and athlete Jonathan Garcia, his family and their attorney took their complaint to the Waukegan City Council. “We are on a pattern on abuse in the city of Waukegan, which has now led to our children,” the lawyer, Kevin O’Connor, said.

The rise of police brutality since the aftermath of 9/11 seems to have grown. As Dave Hodges reported, since 9/11, the police have killed 5,000 Americans, which in comparison reflects the number of soldiers killed in Iraq. In fact, you are actually 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist.
