    :ulol: How the hell do you payout 6.2 million before you've even had any officers found guilty of misconduct?

    How the fuck can that happen?

    Does that dumbass mayor have unilateral authority to waste taxpayer $$$ like that?!

    I'm guessing the "victims" family kicked some of the $$$ back to the nice politicians that got it for them.

    Why do railroads pay out thousands to idiots who drive onto the tracks past the crossing gate and get smeared?

    Juries are a crapshoot.

    A government entity should be prohibited from doling out a payout like this before any criminal liability has even been established. It's corrupt.

    it's the only way a city can appear to be not racist. You see, they have to pay the victims family when the police shoot their criminal offspring even though they are found to be justified shootings. It's just the way things are these days. God bless America... :rolleye2:

    The legal evidentiary standards for criminal guilt and civil negligence are very different. You don't need a finding of criminal guilt to pursue a civil claim against a city, and the criminal findings against an officer are not the same as any civil liability findings against the city.

    It would have been more prudent of the city to hold the civil matter in abeyance while the criminal matter against one of the offending officers was pending, but the allegations of the city's liability likely do not turn on the criminal liability against an officer.

    Settling one before the other is stupid unless you know they've got you dead to rights. (Or you're a corrupt piece of shit...)

    This is a huge settlement for that worthless turd and the cases are all flimsy.

    Corrupt democrat leadership equals giving tax payer money to people that don't deserve a nickel.

    I bet the six million doesn't last that long for them. Every friend and relative will have their hand out. Big homes, fancy cars, and bling. at least they will stimulate the Baltimore economy.

    The city should have sent his family a bill for all of the police hours wasted on the worthless cunt.

    Its a city where most of the people running it are black/democrats. :bigthink:
    A lot of that money is going back to the politicians.

    Because a criminal case takes a unanimous decision whereas a civil one only takes a majority.

    OJ was found not guilty of killing his wife before being found liable in the civil suit brought by the Goldman family.

    Just like all Democrats they are always very generous with other people's money. Heck they can just tax the evil rich to pay for it!
