A pair of Chicago cops are in boiling hot water after their illegal interrogation with a Chinese woman was caught on camera.
During a 2013 raid a hair and nail salon, security camera footage caught the officers roughing up 32-year-old Jianqing “Jessica” Klyzek and threatening to ship her in a UPS box back to China.
Reports Chicago Sun-Times:
A Chicago police officer hit a handcuffed, kneeling woman in the head, while another shouted racially charged comments at her and threatened she’d be murdered during a raid of a West Side tanning salon.
Filmed by a security camera during a Chicago Police vice raid at the Copper Tan and Spa in Noble Square last summer, the video appears to show one cop smack 32-year-old salon manager Jianqing “Jessica” Klyzek in the head with an open hand as she is on her knees, handcuffed.
Another large officer yelled at the 110 pound, 5-foot-2 Klyzek — a naturalized U.S. citizen who emigrated from China — “You’re not f—— American!”
The officer then ranted at a screaming and hysterical Klyzek that “I’ll put you in a UPS box and send you back to wherever the f— you came from,” before warning her the spa’s owner “will f—— kill you . . . You’ll be dead, and your family will be dead.”
“I cannot imagine Supt. Garry McCarthy can face the citizens of this city and defend these officers’ actions,” said Klyzek’s attorney, Torreya Hamilton, who is calling for the officers to be fired.”
Naturally, the Independent Police Review Authority says they are investigating the situation but it has nearly been a year. No report as of yet the damages Klyzek is seeking in her lawsuit.
