That Time Chicago Cops Got an Unconscious Man They’d Shot to Confess

That Time Chicago Cops Got an Unconscious Man They’d Shot to Confess

As reporters and activists continue to call out Chicago police over instances of police brutality, we reflect back to a revelation made in January of 2016 which highlights the culture of corruption within the department.

A Cook County judge threw out incriminating statements after Chicago detectives secured a confession from a barely conscious man.

Chicago police officers shot suspect Princeton Williamson then  entered his hospital room to question him. Even though Williamson was heavily sedated, detectives insist they were able to extract a confession at his bedside.

Although the cops stood firm in their story that Williamson was alert, two nurses disagreed with their characterization of the suspect’s condition.

“Williamson was in so much discomfort he could only mumble his words, one of the nurses said, so she communicated with him by having him squeeze her hands to answer questions yes or no,” The Chicago Tribune reported.

A  judge blasted the confession as “garbage”.

“I have to seriously question whether Mr. Williamson ever did anything but maybe grunt or even knew who he was talking to,” said Judge James Obbish.

    But for the nurses present, they would’ve likely placed a thumb in his bullet wounds… Business as usual.

    Guess the next move was to sent the two characters back into the public (hood) to keep up the good work…

    What did he supposedly confess to?
