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?
