    Excessive Force, that line that the cops aren't supposed to cross, is an expensive line. Not for the cop, he doesn't pay anything. The city on the other hand, they get to fork over tons of money.

    Law student receives $3m payout from New Jersey police | Daily Mail Online

    Three million dollars to one person, another half million to another, and almost four hundred thousand to a third. All because of the same fine cop out there just doing his job. Or sometime.

    Now, some people like to claim that cops can't get the equipment and training they need. Well, how does the city afford a couple dozen police cars when the cash is going to the victims of the police? Where is the city supposed to get the money when it goes out the door to pay off victims of police brutality faster than it can be raised? Three million dollars. The victim is in law school now, paid for by you the citizens of Atlantic City, and the people who visit the city. Just imagine his closing arguments as he points to the scars on his head and neck and tells the Jury of his personal experience with the police.

    Just think about how much money the city could have saved if they had fired this idiot cop after the first incident of brutality, or perhaps the second incident. They could have saved at least $3 Million bucks. But instead, they wanted that fine jackass out on the street costing them a ton of cash. Works for me. Later we'll hear how the damned Liberals were all responsible because they hate cops, or something. The funny thing is that the Liberals did not fire that asshole either.

    Money for suits against cops should come from the police pension funds.

    He was awarded the money because the prosecutors office failed to sign-off on his admission to the pretrial intervention program which without he cannot be admitted to the bar.

    ie; the guy is a violent criminal and can now be a lawyer. Just what we need?

    It probably comes from insurance....you'd think the police depts would insure themselves to protect themselves from these kind of suits??? :dunno:

    Some do, but many cities self-insure.

    Nope. But.

    Police department shuts down after settling lawsuits against 2 officers

    Insurance goes up after payouts. Just like your car insurance goes up after accidents and tickets, and DUI.
