Goo' for them. They deserve every penny.
wow, that's a lot of speeding tickets they're gonna have to go out and manufacture
The American dream.
Glad I don't pay taxes there anymore.
That Doerner dude had the cops shitting their pants! Shoot first... ask questions later!
Such bullshit. They should have gotten 10 times that amount.
These "public servants" almost murdered these people while trying to execute a suspect with a kill on sight order.
Giving ridiculous sums of money to people for these acts is one of the only things that on occasion might actually bring pressure to dissuade the "peace officers" and those who command them from acting as death squads in the future.
It's the same reason you don't just fine BP a few million dollars when they spill millions of barrels of oil in the ocean.
There'll be cars on the lawn for everyone
Both of them lived, had their car replaced for free, and weren't permanently disabled....yet they still get nearly 5 million dollars ..
We can add yet another example of how fucked Los Angels & California are.... one more nail in their coffin
I was pretty caught up in this man-hunt. Cops trying to find another cop.
Cinco de Mayo came early for these two pinche ways!
They'll blow through the money is under 18 months. The new truck will be be involved in a hit-n-run, no insurance. Rinse, repeat.
You are out of your mind. More money? Where do you think that money comes from? It comes from taxpayers who live in LA and businesses in LA. They will foot the bill for the stupidity of the police. The police lost zero dollars here. They don't care.
Only way to change this is to hire intelligent officers who don't fire at random trucks because they are morons. No amount of money will fix this issue until proper hiring policies are in place. You think the cops care that they got sued for money? It's not even their money. It's your money that finances the police and allows them to get away with shit like this.
When it's the actual police money look at how they protect it. That Dorner reward money? They won't pay that out. Why? Because it comes from the actual police budget that they pay themselves with. If that Dorner reward money was taxpayer funded they'd have paid it out already.
Well, duh! No shit it comes from the taxpayers. That's the whole point. Make them eat it hard and feel the sting and maybe inspire them and their officials and politicians to get a fucking grip on their police and their police unions and their policies and tactics and stop with the knee-jerk cop hero worship and fucking rationalizing and enabling every boneheaded and illegal and unconstitutional thing they do just because "they have a tough job" and they're all post-911 "heroes"....
You are right about everything, especially the part about hiring intelligent officers. This has long not been the case throughout the police dept. They have to hire to fill a racial, ethnic and gender quota, and very little has to do with intelligence or hiring the best and the brightest.
Fuck da po-leece
Paid by idiot LA county tax payers
you're just as big a moron as he is. cops do this shit because they are above the law. the only way to fix that is to remove their qualified immunity. the better fix is to do away with police altogether. i have exactly no use for them.
So true. Those women are lucky they are not laying 6 feet under.
