    The dude? Yeah, he probably will still be in trouble for his crimes. But the police need to be in trouble for their crimes as well. Losing over a half million dollars won't do it, the cops at fault do not pay that. The only way to curtail bad cop behavior is to punish the bad cops.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Completely agree. Didn't mean to imply the officers shouldn't answer for their actions. And no, I don't think they pay out ends the officer's accountability. The payout is the department/employer, not them. Just saying he doesn't, and shouldn't, get a "get our of jail free" card, either.
    Donald Trump is a pied piper for the stupid.
    In that sense the man is a freakin' genius.
