Post Date: 2018-06-04 17:37:08 by tpaine
Army veteran suffering from PTSD tells VA therapist he thought about shooting Louisville, Ky. police officer (who cited him for minor traffic violation) but that he did not intend to do it. A VA staff member informs the police (without the therapist's say-so). The (Louisville, Ky) officer gets the veteran charged with making terroristic threats, neglects to mention therapist's belief that veteran was not a risk. The veteran spends 10 days in jail before charges dismissed. Sixth Circuit Decision: The officer had a warrant, so the veteran can't sue for false arrest (though he might have been more successful had he raised different claims).
Jury awards family four dollars in wrongful death suit against cops
Post Date: 2018-06-01 13:49:37 by Tooconservative
This is a rather creepy story out of Florida (where else) which deserves a bit more attention. Four years ago, Florida Sheriffs Deputy Christopher Newman shot and killed Gregory Vaughn Hill Jr. while responding with his partner to reports of a disturbance involving loud music. Since Hill was black and Newman is white, an investigation was immediately convened with the usual media focus on possible motivations involving racism. A grand jury was convened to examine the case and they opted not to indict Newman, placing nearly all the blame on Hill for the result of the encounter. That led to a wrongful death suit being filed by Hills family in civil court. That case drew to a ...
