Families of alleged police brutality victims renew efforts to get officer removed
North Chicago police have a notorious reputation after 12 alleged brutality cases in recent years.
Now the families of two victims are renewing efforts to get a man who they say is a bad cop off the force.
63-year-old Stretha ‘Van’ Alston, a veteran now in a wheelchair, was beaten and tased in 2009.
Dash cam video shows police shows him being tailed for several minutes.
He says he drove slowly to his home because out of fear of aggression from police.
He and a witness say he got out with his hands up.
Documents show the same arresting officer, Gary Grayer, was later involved in the arrest of Darrin Hanna, who allegedly died at the hands of police.
North Chicago’s new police chief did not respond for comment.
