Before Chicago Police Sergeant George Granias was accused of beating a handcuffed black woman, he reportedly registered several domains with names like “niggadown.com” and “niggaguns.com”
The domains were discovered during an investigation into his 2013 arrest and subsequent beating of Patassa Johnson. According to a lawsuit Johnson filed against the city in 2015, she was arrested and accused of driving drunk—a charge which was later dropped—then roughly escorted into a police station. Once inside the station, Granias reportedly beat Johnson while she was in handcuffs.
According to the Daily Beast, Johnson is expected to get $185,000 from the City of Chicago. The lawsuit says that she suffered an unbelievably harrowing experience at the hands of this racist cop.
Granias is still on the Chicago Police force. The department told CBS Chicago that they were investigating the websites.
