At a time when police face scrutiny across America it’s becoming more apparent that not only are citizens uniting in the fight for Justice but government too.
Cities across America are facing an overwhelming amount of lawsuits regarding their officers and seem to settle quite fast turning it’s victim(s) and often the families of victim(s) into millionaires at rate most would compare to the lottery. Many have expressed, that experienced leaders such as mayors and governors would seem to want to have a conversation with it’s citizens and officers in order to remedy the issues, but is it happening?
The cost of litigations could prove to be a crippling blow to the city of Ferguson and send a strong message to other cities across the country.
Complaints are already arising as to the costs that the City would endure just to proceed with the suit.
Many across America have voiced their opinions and are demanding a complete police reform including holding officer(s) accountable for their actions when breaking the law such as mandatory sentences and fines for minor offenses.
Though many on the police side including their supporters insist that there are an overwhelming amount of good police officers in the country, but many whom oppose those statements will argue the belief that ‘ if there were good cops out there, then there would be no bad cops ‘ that good cops are suppose to turn bad cops in, instead it’s the citizens that are forced to have to do it, either by way of lawsuits, cell phone footage and or surveillance camera(s).
American victims seem to be tired and fed up!
Though indictments and or convictions of Officers (some former) seem to be on the rise, many will argue as to what actually led to arrests and convictions of those officers, and insist that most were not from a good cop that turned the bad ones in.
Many will be watching as to what happens on the Ferguson suit.
Stay tuned as we continue to cover this story.
