I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm still waiting for the malicious prosecution suit against the Genesee County Persecuting Attorney.
That ****sucker David Leyton took him to trial on felony charges, charges so baseless that the judge issued a directed verdict after the prosecution rested its case, to harass him for filing a civil suit against the police.
(Leyton filed the charges AFTER McMorris sued the cops, should be removed from office and disbarred)

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
-Patrick Henry, Virginia Ratification Convention, June 5, 1788
From the first article:
"Township police Chief George Sippert declined to comment on the settlement and directed questions to attorney G. Gus Morris, who represented the officer and department in the case.
Morris said the township continues to stand behind the legitimacy of Fries' stop but its insurance provider, which is paying*the agreement, decided to settle to offset further costs.
"It was more of forgoing the cost of further litigation," Morris said of the settlement."
So at the end of the day, the settlement isn't directly costing the badged thug (the Rights-violating LEO) nor the Rights-trampling attorney a dime, nor will they admit to any wrongdoing.
Looks like they are more than happy to maintain the status quo...
I carry to defend my loved ones; Desensitizing and educating are secondary & tertiary reasons. Anything else is unintended.
“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” - Frederic Bastiat
"When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle." - Edmund Burke
Any future settlement should have a clause for further damages if a department continues to claim no wrong doing. I doubt they would agree to a guilty statement but I'd be happy enough to take away the ability to deny guilt.
