What type of farganargle BS is this?
According to the Baltimore Sun, the city of Baltimore has reached a $6.4 million settlement in a lawsuit filed by the family of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man black man who died in April after suffering a neck injury while in police custody.
The settlement is expected to be approved Wednesday at a meeting of the city’s Board of Estimates, which oversees city spending, the mayor’s office said.
“The proposed settlement agreement going before the Board of Estimates should not be interpreted as a judgment on the guilt or innocence of the officers facing trial,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a statement. “This settlement is being proposed solely because it is in the best interest of the city and avoids costly and protracted litigation that would only make it more difficult for our city to heal.”
Wow. This is wrong. The officer’s haven’t been tried and yet the government is already admitting guilt. There is evidence we don’t know but this sounds a little premature if you ask me. If your delinquent son gets killed on the street by other delinquent thugs, you get nothing. If he dies in police custody, even by his own doing, you hit the lottery.
How come they get this amount of money for wrongful death? How about all the policemen that are killed every year and those who recently have been killed, considering they were not on duty or trying to do their duty.
The mayor’s office said the city would pay $2.8 million to Gray’s family in the fiscal year that began July 1, with the balance being paid in the following fiscal year.
If the officers are found not guilty, the family should have to give the money back.
Hope someone files a suit to appeal this payout, the thug was never worth one-tenth of this amount. It hasn’t been proven that Gray is not responsible for his own death by his actions, let the legal system run is course.
The governor needs to step in and take the checkbook away from this incompetant and corrupt black administration…Baltimore doesnt have the money to pay this….at least wait until these trials are over ..whats the rush?
