Another one. The family of Rekia Boyd, 22, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city of Chicago and an off-duty police detective who shot her in the back of the head, for no discernible reason, as she was walking with friends. Boyd was black; the detective is white. He initially said he fired in self-defense; no other gun but his was found.
