Leroy Kennedy IV, a Black man whose violent arrest last August went viral, filed a lawsuit against the city of Chicago following the incident.
Kennedy, who was in Humboldt Park on the West Side of Chicago, Illinois was approached and assaulted by two officers as he walked to a local store in late summer of last year.
Kennedy was approached from behind and slammed against a brick wall and then thrown to the ground while officers repeatedly smashed his head against the sidewalk.
The entire incident was captured on video via an officer’s body camera.
He was walking down the street & they slammed him to the ground & gave him a concussion because "he had a shocked look on his face"

We need justice for Leroy Kennedy, IV. Just because his eyes bulged a bit in the presence of police, does not justify their stop and frisk actions.
This man spent time in jail for absolutely nothing. He was INNOCENT!
