Read Mary Mitchell in todays SUNTIMES
This idiot (Mary Mitchell) doesn't get it does she?
Ms. Rivera you bore the children of a drug dealer and you question the City for keeping a bad cop on its payroll.
You went to the public trough because your babies daddy is in the joint and he can't provide through his illegal means anymore.
Mary obviously doesn't know he difference between compensatory and punitive damages and the indemnification by the City.
Now the City wants its legal cost paid by Ms. Rivera for losing in Federal Court and Mary thinks this is bad precedence. After all, according to Mary, the City pays out millions for brutallity cases every year. Well Mary that was bad precedence.
The City needs to invest in fighting these bullshit cases. The cost would be high in the begining but when the settlements become few and far between lawyers will not be willing to take the gamble of a loss.
