    4.2 mil for 2 women shot at by cops in Dorner frenzy

    "It closes this chapter in Los Angeles and LAPD history on all issues."

    Unfortunately, its a pretty big book with many chapters to come. They should give cops flamethrowers now...

    To fast.
    Something is not right about all this.
    Cops not fired or charged.
    There will be more that comes out.

    That's SOP for cops, why is it surprising?

    Tax money is free, didn't you know that? Pay their medical bills and make them as whole as possible (not $4.2 million worth) and send them in their way.

    The department's settlement no doubt includes a "no liability" clause for the officers.

    Not admitting liability is different than not fixing a known problem. Next time it happens, the department cannot claim that they didn't know officers were improperly trained or ignorant of use of force laws and policies. It becomes (even greater) negligence than the last time. ("My dog doesn't bite people, except for last time, and the time before that.")

    Plus , these women are illegal aliens and they should now be deported.
    I hadn't read the mother / daughter were illegal aliens. Can you direct me to a citation?

    Thanks in advance.
    Liberty is so strongly a part of human nature that it can be treated as a no-lose argument position.

    From the cop’s perspective, the expression “law-abiding citizen” is a functional synonym for “Properly obedient slave".

    The City Council has to approve the settlement amount, which is scheduled for discussion on May 21.
    We can only hope that the City Council will vote to not pay the settlement.

    The city would agree to pay even if the cops were personally found liable.

    That's not even the most disturbing thing happening here. Not only haven't they been fired, but so far as is publicly known they haven't even received an official reprimand. If I recall correctly, police officer disciplinary records were recently exempted from California's public records act, so we can't even check to see what if anything has happened.
