    What's it worth to be pepper-sprayed with a boot on the back of your neck?

    This guy got a jury award + costs totalling $1.15M

    ThumperWatch: Golden Valley, MN: White man robs store, black man gets $1.15M for police abuse

    Let's hope some of the recently abused Occupy XXX demonstrators are retaining attorneys, and the attorneys are doing their research.

    What's almost hilarious about this one is how the attorney for the losers -- who's already refused to settle for less and got hit with a $1.15 jury verdict as a result -- keeps rambling on about how the police & city handled the incident correctly, and then he throws in some nonsense that they're not going to appeal because they "don't want to take a chance" with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. Dude, you already LOST the jury trial & judgment. You have nothing more to risk losing for your clients at this point except your own bills, you moron.

    Does anyone actually believe a word that comes out of their mouths?

    I read that story awhile ago. Chalk one up for the good guys. The victim was guilty of getting gas while black. Come to think of it, the Jag should have been a very big tip-off for those idiot cops.

    Do you think Mr. Pike the pepper spray cop at UC Davis is in store for some significant judgements against him? I hope so.

    Especially after the dispatcher told them TWICE that the robber was a white make in a white van. Apparently the memory in apes with two-digit IQ's must have an extra long burn cycle before anything is retained.

    $1.15M x number of victims, no boots on the backs of the necks, but the pepper spray directly into their throats and eyes should more than make up for that little oversight.

    That guy Pike was acting like he was watering the plants, I think Jon Stewart called him on that.

    Yes. This shows he has NO compassion at all for other human beings. That is the definition of a psychopath.
