Judge throws out racial profiling suit against two white Indiana police officers


A federal judge has dismissed a civil lawsuit that accused two Lake County, Ind. police officers of racial profiling and excessive force. The judge ruled Monday there was no evidence Corey Shepard was treated differently during a 2007 traffic stop because he is black.

The judge also dismissed Shepard's claims that the two Lake County police officers used excessive force while arresting him during the traffic stop, saying it was Shepard's own lack of cooperation that necessitated the use of any force. Shepard was the passenger but had an outstanding arrest warrant.

If that was a Chicago Judge and jury, the "victim" would get maybe a million dollars for his suffering, even though he wasn't a victim.
