Here are the new developments in the story I brought to you yesterday entitled: “Slimebag Cop Sues Family of Brain-Damaged Tot”

Apparently Sgt. Eichhorn has come to her sensed and is dropping the charges.  For this, I commend her and will no longer refer to her as “Satan’s Whore”.

Officer Drops Suit, Placed On Leave

Woman Broke Knee After Slipping On Puddle 

CASSELBERRY, Fla. — A police sergeant on Thursday dropped her lawsuit against a family that was filed after she slipped and fell at their home during a 911 call, and she was placed on leave by the Casselberry Police Department.

Sgt. Andrea Eichhorn, a 12-year department veteran, was removed from duty with pay while the department reviews the incident.

A 1-year-old boy, Joey Cosmillo, nearly drowned Jan. 9, and there was water on the floor at the home of the boy’s family. Eichhorn slid, broke her knee and missed two months of work. She said the boy’s family is guilty of negligence.

Eichhorn’s attorney, David Heil, sent a fax to Local 6 News that stated Eichhorn said it was in the best interest of herself and her family, friends and the Casselberry Police Department to dismiss the lawsuit.

“It doesn’t mean anything because you can’t take anything more away from us than what has been taken,” grandmother Maggie Cosmillo said in reference to her grandson’s condition.

Joey suffered brain damage and can no longer walk, talk or swallow. He lives in a nursing home and eats and breathes through tubes.

The boy’s grandmother said she hopes some good can come out of the attention the incident has garnered through the lawsuit.

“I just want someone to step forward (and) help this little boy. Let’s give him the best that he deserves,” Maggie Cosmillo said.

The lawsuit was filed against the advice of the Casselberry police chief. Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.

    What annoys me just as much as police officer’s lawsuit — “Protect and serve?” — is when people try to justify it, shifting blame onto the parents, as if they deserve it. Case in point, someone on my own blog talking about how the parents should be considered unfit to raise the child. Ugh!

    They have homeowners insurance, right? How the do you get the insurance company to honor their committment? Do you think the insurance co. is going to voluntarily pay? Why did the police chief lie? He stated in his press release that all her medical bills were covered but then why was a board of inquiry required to determine on whether she had received sufficient compensation to cover her current and future medical costs. Have you read the police report? How does a 1 year old drown in the pool? Why has no one investigated the obvious child negligence, not just on the mother, but the grandfather also? Do you even have a clue as to what the Florida laws concerning pool barriers are? Do you think the mother is a psychic because afterall, she “begged” her parents to stay home because she just “knew” something bad was going to happen?
