A pity that the city taxpayers well be fitting the bill and the thugs that committed the crimes won’t pay a penny.

The police union and its warrior culture is really delivering value to the taxpayers of Philadelphia.

The word “settlement” usually means charges are dropped and officers are not reprimanded. Is that the case here?

A couple of officers were fired and the rest of the mob is being internally investigated.

This was a civil suit. The officers were never charged with anything, so charges couldn’t be dropped. Two of the officers were fired.

I’d really like some accountability for the FOP for that post, but not sure how that would happen

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney called the treatment of Young “absolutely appalling” and “inexcusable.”

And, surprisingly, the officers were fired. Wow.

Yes we know, all cops aren’t bullies. The ones who aren’t are just willing to tolerate/protect the ones who are.

“Let’s break a window, pull a woman out of her car and beat her and then photo op with the kid like we rescued him! We’ll be heroes!”

Sounds like a dark fucked up, unrealistic, scheme by Dennis in Always Sunny.

Fuck all those cops, they should all be fired.

According to osha, policing is the 14th most dangerous job in America.
That’s why they need full body armor to do it and “retire” after twenty years of the stress. Just like those in the 11th most dangerous job: grounds maintenance workers.

I’m just wondering who is paying for this settlement, People taxes?

Is it a rule for police unions that their communications must be completely tone-deaf, awful, and wrong?
