Fuck This Lying Nigger!!
Peoria police Lt. Marshall Dunnigan continued his legal spat with City Hall with yet another lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court this week, alleging racial discrimination.
The suit, filed Wednesday, states the punishment the 28-year veteran received for allegations he took winnings from another gambler at the Par-A-Dice Riverboat Casino in November 2006 – he was fired – was “different and more severe than the discipline” imposed upon other white police employees.
Recently, the city gave Dunnigan $37,240 in back pay and benefits after an arbitrator ruled last year the city failed to establish Dunnigan committed a crime. The amount Dunnigan received was likely more as the city agreed to also repay his pension for the money Dunnigan withdrew while out of work for 16 months.
The suit filed this week seems to mirror that earlier arbitration, with a key difference being that Dunnigan is now asking for attorneys’ fees as well as “damages sufficient to compensate him for the emotional distress, mental anguish, embarrassment, inconvenience and loss in the enjoyment of life suffered by him.”
Dunnigan was fired in March 2007, and he has always maintained his termination was more about his displeasure with being passed over for promotion in 2005 and the subsequent filing of a human-rights complaint with state officials than about what happened at the casino.
In 2006, a Human Rights department investigator determined there was no “substantial evidence” to sustain the allegations.
The investigator summed up her report by saying, “The other candidates ranked superior to (Dunnigan). . . . There is no evidence of race, sex or age animus.”
When reached, City Attorney Randy Ray said he had not seen the lawsuit and couldn’t comment further.
In January 2008, Dunnigan filed a similar lawsuit in federal court. Both seek unspecified damages.
Its just another typical day in Peoria. And still the media and new papers refuse to acknowledge that Peoria has a major Nigger problem.
A 50-year-old man was beaten and robbed Saturday evening while walking through the shuttered Harrison Homes.
The victim told police he was walking near the housing complex about 6:30 p.m., when he was approached by five men. One asked him for money, and when he replied he had none they began kicking and punching him, according to a Peoria police report.
The attackers stole his wallet, containing an undisclosed amount of money, his cell phone and his keys. One of the robbers attempted to snatch the man’s boot, but was unsuccessful.
The attack left the man, however, with a broken ankle, and he had to drag himself to a nearby bar to call for help, according to the report. The victim was treated at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center for the broken ankle and released.
He could not give a description of the young men, except that they wore “bling,” the report stated.
No arrests had been made as of Sunday night.
A Central Peoria man was ordered held on $150,000 bond for allegedly breaking into a South Peoria home and threatening the couple inside with a broken bottle.
Bobby Jones Jr., 41, of 1120 W. Gift Ave. faces two counts of home invasion and one count of criminal damage to property for the incident early Friday.
Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Pattelli said police were sent to the 2000 block of West Howett Street on the report of a home invasion. On their way, they were flagged down by one of the victims, who had managed to slip out of the house to call police.
Once there, they found Jones and arrested him. According to the couple, Jones had come to their house earlier and an argument ensued. They got him to leave, but he returned about 2:30 a.m., kicked the door in and threatened the couple. While the husband calmed Jones down and got him to give up the bottle, the wife slipped out and called police.
Jones denied kicking the door in and said he was there to talk about the couple owing money to someone else.
Jones will next appear in court Dec. 4 for a preliminary hearing. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison.
