Who gets the money- her mother? Her family? Will her mother share it with family?

Interesting the pay-off came so fast - usually drags out for years.

Seriously? Because those of us who pay taxes do not want a further epidemic of huge settlements without legal reasons and just to appease the loudest crowd. That gets passed onto the citizens in higher taxes or fees or services have to be reduced.

R3, you are wrong. Punitive damages may be awarded under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 when the defendant's conduct is shown to be motivated by evil motive or intent, or when it involves reckless or callous indifference to the federally protected rights of others. Punitive damages are meant to punish, or deter, illegal action, and are often multiple times greater than compensatory damages (simply making someone whole for their loss). Illegal action includes police breaking into the wrong house and murdering its occupants, which occurred here.

Her family’s not getting that money because she was a black American; they’re getting it because she was killed by police while lying in her bed in her own home. Do you wish that for a family member, you Nazi idiot?

OP is a racist. He wouldn’t say shit about it if it was a white family. Shut the fuck up OP. Stupid racist cunts here. Fucking annoying.

R5, if you don't want settlements like this one, then you need to convince your local government to hire police that are minimally competent, i.e., cops who can read a map and don't break into the wrong house with guns blazing.

Initially, I agreed with R3. But there doesn't appear to have been any court proceedings? Obviously they didn't want any.
So, Ben Crump gets a $3.6 million payday from this? I hope he donates a good portion of that instead of enriching himself.
I don't think this excludes any criminal charges - which are necessary.

Op have you started any other threads on white people receiving settlements and questioned how the were going to distribute their money. Exactly. The signature move that identifies racists is this.

Yeah, shut the fuck up R4, you racist fucking kraut. You “people” have nothing to offer the world except shitty food, shitty beer, shitty music, sexual perversion, and violence.
Just for that, the Taylor family should get $12 billion. Black Lives Matter more than you racist fucking Kraut sons of bitches ever have or ever will.

A jury would have awarded far more. This is the inevitable cost of allowing no-knock warrants to be executed by trigger-happy cops. If you don't like settlements like this, then get your city to ban no-knock warrants or get them to hire cops that are pussies who are afraid of their own shadows.

Louisville initially claimed that there was no video of the shooting. Then a photo taken after the shooting appeared showing a police officer with a body cam. The footage, presumably, was not helpful. At a minimum it might have supported her boyfriend’s claim that the police refused to provide any medical assistance to her as she lay dying.

So nobody gets punished except the taxpayers of Louisville.

It doesn't surprise me that rightwing shitstain JMac would pretend like these settlements "never used to be this large" or whatever.
The settlement included punitive damages, obviously.
Your "concerns" at r5 would be addressed by having cops, oh, I dunno, NOT RAIDING THE WRONG HOUSE AND MURDERING INNOCENT PEOPLE.

r5 I hope you aren't suggesting that you are part of some select group that pays taxes. Everyone pays taxes. You should sit outside your local police department to make sure they are doing their fucking jobs then, instead of complaining on the internet about it. And there will be more of these type settlements to whip law enforcement into shape, with the taxpayer knee is on the neck of the government.
[quote]just to appease the loudest crowd. This is how it works in the rest of the world my dear. You better start getting a loud voice or you to will be discarded by those more wealthy and powerful than you. Thats what its coming to. No more will Americans get to sweep injustice under the rug without consequence. Interesting how the standards are only raised when Americans actually have to put their money where their mouth is.

Her family settled very cheaply. Louisville got themselves a bargain basement deal
If this would have gone to court the family would have easily gotten 5 times this amount
The cops lied to a judge to obtain a warrant, broke into the wrong house, executed a woman and left her to die
And a court case could have opened up the state of Kentucky to it's own lawsuit

I hope they get good financial advice and put a big part of that settlement in trusts for education of grandchildren. I hope they don't blow it all on nonsense.

Cities and localities have insurance policies that cover these situations. The city isn't not going to raise the sales tax rate to pay for it. In any case, I'm sure most of the residents of Louisville would be willing to pay a couple of cents extra for the added security of knowing that the cops will think twice before murdering them in their sleep.

Yes, and there are limits on every single insurance policy in the world. How much an insurance company pays depends on how much the city contributed to the death. A pattern of poor training and keeping a bad cop on the payroll limits how much the insurance company has to pay
And insurance doesn't just "pay for everything". The city will be lucky if the insurance company pays 40% of that settlement

I'm sure they would rather have her alive than have all of this money.

The charges just guarantee that cops will continue this type of thing without correction. Those who didn't like the settlement, get your asses on the street to protest.
