Fairfax County VA has settled a lawsuit for $2,000,000

Fairfax County VA has settled a lawsuit for $2,000,000 to the family of man who was fatally shot by a SWAT team officer while unarmed during a raid that was heavily criticized because it was for the non-violent crime of taking bets on football games. The officer claimed the shot was accidental when he hit his arm on his car door which caused his finger to slip into the trigger guard and squeeze the trigger but forensic evidence prepared by the family’s lawyer contradicted that claim.

Three Denver CO police officers are

Three Denver CO police officers are the subject of a lawsuit alleging they brutally beat a 19-year-old man during a traffic stop because he refused to let them search his trunk without a warrant. The suit alleges officers beat him for several minutes with radios, batons, and flashlights and that one of the officers was also involved in the highly publicized DeHerrera beating that was captured on video. The man, shown in the photo above, also claims that after the beating one officer told him “Where’s that warrant now, you fucking nigger?” and that officers then conspired to falsely charge him to cover for the beating, charges which later fell apart and were dismissed.

It turned out that the man police attacked was completely innocent, had no record, and was simply walking home from the grocery store at the time. Police claim he was injured for not complying.

A West Bloomfield MI police detective has cost that town $1,800,000 in a wrongful imprisonment/wrongful prosecution lawsuit settlement made to a family who’s father was jailed for 80 days on false rape charges along with their mother who was also briefly jailed while their two autistic children were sent to separate foster homes. The suit against the police claimed the detective essentially forced a highly questionable confession from the family’s autistic son in a horrifying videotaped interrogation and that the initial allegation was dragged from their severely autistic daughter through highly questionable methods that were almost nothing more than a Ouija board. Their suit is still in progress against county prosecutors, children’s services, and the school district for their roles in this disturbing case. The video of the interrogation of the family’s son is available on the site linked above.
