Black Female Security Guard Punched By White Man On Video

Bent. Not Broken.
This isn't a racially motivated crime. It's an unfortunate part of the job. That A-Hole definitely commited a crime, but she's a security officer and part of her job is encountering violent people. It has nothing to do with her being a woman. When people see any form of "law enforcement" they don't generally see gender.


The GFM started out with a goal of 5k. In less that 24 hours the goal has been raised to 20k. She will be having surgery on her eye on Wednesday to fix the damage caused by the thug. The police will have some updates tomorrow about the assailant as I have a feeling that they will have some good news.

Comments:
- (Random commenter): What exactly is the Board of this building doing to contribute to Zoa's medical expenses and potential time she'll need to take off from work and school? You employ her and she got hurt on your watch, recorded by your building's camera's. I feel you owe it to all of the generous contributors to share YOUR commitment to Zoa's well-being, as I came here ready to donate and stopped because the building's board hasn't shared their intentions. She deserves YOUR support first and foremost.

-(Person who started the GFM): I wanted to comment on questions about her Worker's Comp Insurance. Zoa is employed through a Security agency that we have hired and she will be covered through their policy.
so this answers my question about her benefits coverage...

Man caught on video punching female security guard apologizes after surrendering

A man caught on video punching a female security guard in River North is apologizing after surrendering to police, saying through a representative "there are consequences he knows he has to face."

"He knew what he did was wrong," Dawn Valenti said as she stood outside the Area Central police station where the man was being held Tuesday. "I can't tell you how sorry he is.

"He hit a woman," she said. "That's not what he does."

Valenti, who is well-known for helping victims of Chicago violence, was not defending his actions. "I did not condone what he did,'' Valenti said.

She told reporters she knows the man's family through a friend and agreed to drive the man to the police station.

She would not identify him but said he has an "exemplary" record. No charges had been announced as of mid-afternoon Tuesday.

The early Sunday attack was captured by surveillance cameras at the entrance of the building in the 600 block of North Franklin Street.

The video shows the guard, Zoa Stigler, walking up to a man after he sat down on the sidewalk and leaned against the building just before 2 a.m. Sunday. Stigler said she checked on whether the man needed help and then called Chicago police.

Stigler is seen on the video bringing out a bucket after the man vomited. By this time, another man and two women have showed up and Stigler said she told the four to leave.

“They didn’t want to,’’ Stigler said, telling her, “No. We’re fine right here.’’ Stigler said she insisted. “Move over," she told them. "You’ve got to go over, go over.’’

Before she knew it, the man began walking toward her. “I just knew something was coming towards me," Stigler said.

The man threw a water at her, then dropped the bottle and punched her in the face, according to the video.

“I fell back, I stumbled back,’’ Stigler said. “Oh my God, he just hit me in my eye,’’ Stigler said she thought to herself. “I’m in a daze, my vision is blurry, the left side of my face hurt."

The four then walked away. “He wasn’t stumbling when he walked away," she said. "He was steady. Like, no remorse, no nothing."

Stigler said the punch caused injuries to her nose and eye.

The president of the building's condo association has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for her expenses. The initial goal was $5,000, then raised to $15,000 and then to $20,000 after donations poured in.

By mid-afternoon, more than $12,300 had been raised.

One owner of a condo in the building wrote, "My friend is a really good lawyer and said he will represent her pro bono."

Asad Khan, who created the GoFundMe page, said Stigler began working there about two months ago. “She needs surgery on her eye,’’ Khan said. “He fractured her right eye socket and the bridge of her nose."

Khan called Stigler an "exemplary" worker and an "amazing" person. “Amazing person that she is, she actually cleaned up that guy’s vomit before she went to the hospital."

On Tuesday afternoon, Stigler was at the Area Central police station looking at pictures of possible suspects. Detectives asked her if she could pick out the person who hit her.

“Oh yes,’’ she told the detectives. “I was surprised because I didn’t think I could."

Uh, apparently, that IS what he does...



Exemplary record is officially cancelled.

I was especially disturbed by that woman's words because the article mentioned the woman speaking for him, that drove him to the police station "Valenti, who is well-known for helping victims of Chicago violence, ":confused:

Like what?

I looked up Dawn Valenti. She on Twitter apologizing, saying she wasn't defending him. Here is her twitter page. Not sure why she was speaking for him and saying alldat. Dumb broad.

She's getting rightfully dragged. I can't believe she considers herself a crisis responder and basically advocated for him, decided to protect him, speak for him, award him anonymity, and use language that made him sound like the victim.

Wowwew. I thought he was with the woman in pink. His wife has weird body language with the other guy.
Or maybe he's went upside her head before, and she was looking for a buffer in case he turned on them, so she toddler behind the other guy.
Either way, blast his business all over the Internet!
And that guy needs to stop raising the Gofundme limit, and just let it go over. It looks greedy to keep doing that. Like "let's see how much more I can get," versus it just going over what he asked.
Clearly, people will give for a cause that touches them, no need to manipulate the amount any more.

CCTV is everywhere. When will people learn that you can't get away with anything these days? The only place you can get away with anything is in your own house with the blinds shut. As soon as you step outside, you are on screen all over the place whether you can spot the cameras or not.

ETA: add smart phones and it's a wrap. Smart phones are everywhere, even in the villages in developing nations. You will be caught if someone has a pic or video of you.

Most men don't punch women but Imma lay this one in BM's laps because of all their nasty verbal and physical behavior and hatred against BW. People think this is ok and nothing so big a deal cuz BM do it. Reason I say this is that WM are known to say that we get too riled up with police abuse because we kill each other. We have rappers punching BF concert goers. BW are intentionally set up and this is one result.

Eh, George Zimmerman wouldn't see the light of day if that was the case and he's definitely more "Latino-presenting" than the goon who punched the security guard.

I hope she's able to sue because I see the "justice" system pulling the okey-doke.
George Zimmerman had a retired judge dad, all the racist second amendment/stand your ground people, the cops, and even his prosecutor behind him tho (I'm sure he made a pact with the devil) smh. Hopefully this douchebag won't have much support because of the video, and maybe go at least a few days and get his a$$ beat in jail. I am praying she'll sue and get paid either way though.

I just want him to experience what it's like to get abused by someone more physically powerful than him, on top of losing all his coins. That's the only way they'll learn :whip::boxing:

Army vet gets 3 years in prison for punching security guard
Matthew DeLeon had received a less-than-honorable discharge from the Army after assaulting 46-year-old security officer Zoa Stigler in 2017.

By Andy Grimm@agrimm34 Jul 17, 2019, 6:00pm CDTShare this on Facebook (opens in new window)

Surveillance video showed the attack on the security guard outside a River North condo building in 2017.
ABC7

An Army veteran who did two tours of duty in Afghanistan was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for punching out security guard and grandmother Zoa Stigler outside a River North apartment building in 2017.

Matthew DeLeon, who received a less-than-honorable discharge from the Army after he was charged in the assault, pleaded guilty to aggravated battery in a deal with prosecutors that was finalized at a hearing at the Cook County Courthouse in Skokie.

DeLeon slugged Stigler after she approached him as he vomited after a night of drinking outside the building at 630 N. Franklin St. — an incident that was captured on surveillance video and quickly went viral on the internet.

DeLeon fled the scene, but turned himself in two days later, after seeing video himself on the news. Defense attorney Richard Fenbert said Wednesday DeLeon did not remember hitting Stigler. Stigler suffered broken bones in her face, but was cleaning up DeLeon’s vomit when an ambulance arrived.

DeLeon had no criminal history and was a decorated combat veteran, added. DeLeon, who has suffered from mental health and drinking problems, expressed remorse for hitting Stigler, Fenbert said.
