Chicago Cop Slammed Man’s Head with Metal Baton

It was another cop caught on video.

It took a couple of years, but a Chicago cop who fancied himself an Iraq war veteran and had racked up “hundreds and hundreds” of arrests in “challenging districts” in a few short years, was indicted for aggravated assault after a bystander’s video showed he whopped a man in the head with his metal baton.

Video evidence shows Jeremiah Smith following the orders of a peculiarly muscular cop, Brett Khan, when suddenly Khan flips into a rage and heads towards Smith.

As Smith continues walking away out of the street, Kahn wallops him in the head with a metal baton, which Chicago police have trained and authorized him to use in tougher neighborhoods “when the situation calls for it.”

What happens next might be even more peculiar than Khan’s physique: Smith was the one charged with the battery, resisting a police officer.

Rashaan Gordon, Smith’s attorney, expressed that it’s clear law that enforcement get ‘strong deference when they commit very evident crimes and bold misconduct.”

“Some of these experiences are experiences that are known by many communities that have been marginalized for years,” Gordon explained to reporters. “This stuff happens a whole lot. Under no stretch of the imagination do I think any charges would have been brought if there was not video present.”

Smith’s charges were eventually dropped.

During Khan’s indictment hearing prosecutors argued, “the victim did not attack, fight with officers, display any weapons, or commit any offenses prior to the defendant striking and arresting victim,” the prosecutor told Judge Sullivan, who watched the video in her chambers according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Assistant State’s Attorney Theresa Smith said, “that Kahn’s report contradicted the footage of the cellphone video.

Several other people were charged and arrested with resisting a police officer. One person’s case was thrown out and the other got 12 days in jail after pleading guilty. Another person who faced a drinking on a public way ticket also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two days in jail.

Khan said he believed Jeremiah Smith was trying to punch him and feared he would be “battered” by the small man walking away from him.

Jeremiah Smith suffered bleeding, a knot to his head and throbbing pain as a result of the blow, according to Sun Times.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
