#SpoutibleNews Settlements for police misconduct lawsuits cost taxpayers from coast to coast

Cities can face hundreds of lawsuits related to police misconduct each year — and while the payouts vary wildly, settlements are almost always funded by taxpayers.

I think it’s time to require liability insurance, paid for by individuals insured. I have to have malpractice insurance so should they.

Along with training standards, including in law. Very few cops actually know the law, especially when it comes to personal rights. Yes, you can film cops. This has been upheld by SCOTUS but you still see cops telling people to stop recording them.

Read your city's contract w/local police union. Focus on the nearly limitless "qualified immunity" from any personal legal or financial responsibility for anything they do on the clock. Police unions are legal gangs & shake-down rackets to cities. They threaten any citizen who tries to change that.

I see you're an ex-pat. Wherever you lived before you moved to NZ has that "shake-down the city for an unreasonable % of the entire city budget - often 40 to 50% of the entire city budget + threatening response to any citizen who tries to change that" arrangement w/impunity for committing crimes.
