City to pay $3.25 million to family of Maya Hirsch, 4, killed in crosswalk near zoo

Once again... they can't sue the loser who killed their daughter so we all end up paying for it. This is fucking NUTS!
Chicago will pay $3.25 million to the family of a 4-year-old girl killed in 2006 by a hit-and-run driver while crossing a street near Lincoln Park Zoo, under a settlement advanced Monday by a City Council committee.

Maya Hirsch was crossing Belden and Lincoln Park West after spending a Saturday afternoon at the Lincoln Park Zoo with her mother and 6-year-old brother when a black Lexus blew a stop sign. The girl was dragged under the car while her mother and brother were tossed onto the hood.

Michael Roth, 57, was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash. A vanity license plate that caught the eye of a witness led to his arrest.

Roth insisted that he didn’t see the stop sign. He pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a fatal accident, was sentenced to eight years in prison and died in 2008 while behind bars.

The Hirsch family subsequently filed a lawsuit accusing the city of failing to properly maintain the stop sign and other traffic markings at the intersection.

Prior to Monday’s Finance Committee vote, First Deputy Corporation Counsel Leslie Darling said the city’s ability to defend itself against the lawsuit was undermined by several factors.

What about the responsability of the adult with the child. YOU the parent or supervisor are ultimately the sole responsible party when with children. You look and make sure cars are at a complete stop, especially when the area is NOT so clearly marked as the crooked attorney contends.
This is a total patronage move, no responsible court would ever agree to this.
MOST crooked, homicidal city in the Northern Hemisphere.

Figures it was a black Lexus that killed her.

On a side note, I would put the parents responsible for watching this kid in jail.

Note to self: Never buy a vanity license plate.

How many times have you driven down a side street and not seen a stop sign till the last second because of tree foliage in your line of sight? Put some welfare leeches to work picking tree leaves!

Hmmmmmmm....do I smell a Jew connection here? If there was a stop sign at that intersection and the moron blew the sign and hit the kid then why is the city paying out this money? Easy. The lawyer for this family is "connected". The city Corporation Council has scores of over paid lawyers sitting around playing with their dicks and they couldn't go into a court room and at least TRY to win this case or limit the damages. THE CITY IS NOT AT FAULT. I would sure like to hear the reasons the city couldn't go to tial on this one. If that was my daughter, or yours, we would be fighting with our own insurance company to get money. Ain't hard to figure out folks. No wonder this town is fucking BROKE!

Didn't the family go after the Jew who ran over the girl? Maybe they didn't want to hurt one of their own. If some cocksucker decides not to stop for a stop sign then whatever happens is on him.... Not the city.

The mother cares more about the $ than she cared about her kid. The good news is that while the kid will spend eternity in heaven, the mother (and her attorney) will spend eternity in hell.

Said the kid died... The family is on the war path to make sure there are endless stop signs and each is visible.

As a Lincoln Park resident I can tell you that everyone with common sense who lives there teaches their kids, and practices it themselves, to always look both ways when crossing the street and to NEVER assume any driver is going to come to a complete stop at a crossing.

Yep, many Toyotas, Mercedes and BMWs just flying through the cross walks and don't even tap their breaks. That is to be expected.

The biker riders are the really dumb fucks, more dangerous in terms of getting hit by. They never stop.

Still, you learn to look out for that and you teach your kids and also inform your pals of that local observance.

The parents are to blame in small part, from what little I know of this, for not being extra alert to the fact many divers there have a lead foot. Even on the side streets, people breeze by. With the hybrids, you won't hear them now until they are up your ass. Even more reasons to be alert!

Roth died in jail a year later? WTF?

So this means any child in this city who is run over in an intersection WITH A STOP SIGN can turn around and sue the city and get $3 MILLION bucks? Not so fast. If the child goes to a private school in Lincoln Park, and has connected Jewish parents, with a Jew connected lawyer, then you will collect the big bucks. How can the city justify paying these Jew whores who already have money MORE FUCKING MONEY from my tax dollars. Unfucking real!!!

All Jews and all OUR money going down another endless rathole.

The city can't give out millions fast enough to niggers who claim that they were forced to confess to murders by Burge and his men. Most of us know that this is total bullshit.

So, why can't some poor family whose little kid was killed by an asshole collect something also?

Think about it.

It's called , looking beyond your nose, dumb ass. The car didn't appear out of nowhere, it had to 'approach' the intersection, and it is a resposible adult who is alert and aware of these hazards.
But how is it in any way the tax payers problem?
