Ain't it great?!
As we gather more & more of these public & expensive spankings of officers behaving poorly, maybe the ones who haven't yet been sued will consider behaving better. Like, oh, say, not breaking laws.
Maybe this could be a thread, either within each state or nationwide, showing suits won against misbehaving officers / departments / cities, the amount awarded, and links to the court rulings. Would help other people as they encounter similar sticky situations.
