I remember reading about this terrible story in the PJStar:
"Officer Jim Krider, 37, was at the wheel of a prisoner-transport van when Aniya Alexander entered the roadway in the 1800 block of West Lincoln Avenue and was struck by the vehicle. The toddler was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, where she died from her injuries. "
... there was something I couldn't put my finger on and then light bulb...
from the PJStar:
"A Northwest Peoria man claims he was brutally kicked and stomped by police after a brief chase last May. Bryce R. Scott, 33, claims the beating came after he stopped his car and put his hands outside his window in the early morning hours of May 3, 2008, near the intersection of Abington Street and Perry Avenue. In his suit, which names the city and six police officers as defendants, he claims he was pepper sprayed, stomped, kicked, tased and punched after he complied with officers' requests. [...] Four of the officers are named in the lawsuit. They are Gerald Suelter, Timothy Wight, Jeremy Layman and James Krider."
Really? Wow - some coincidence, huh?
