Learning the Lessons of the Tyra Hunter Case (from GLAA's Agenda: 1996)
GLOV Report Targets DC Fire Chief (8/28/96)
JUSTICE FOR TYRA
4 YEARS AND STILL WAITING
The District's attorneys, with the approval of Mayor Anthony Williams, are challenging the $2.9 million jury award to Tyra's mother Margie. They refuse to pay the jury's verdict and end the case.
- The District never disciplined the Fire Department employee who insulted Tyra and withdrew emergency medical care, despite statements from four witnesses against him in fact, the City spent taxpayer dollars defending him in court.
- The Fire Department conducted a sham investigation and never intended to hold anyone accountable for this disgraceful and degrading treatment of a gravely injured citizen.
- The District insults us by arguing that Tyra was used to being called names, so she could not have been too upset at being taunted with insults by a DC employee as she lay bleeding in the street.
- The District threatens the rights of everyone by arguing that citizens are not entitled to take the City to court for violations of the DC Human Rights Law.
