$4.2M? Granny takes 2 rounds and the other is injured by broken glass? Sounds like the winners in this case is the ladies legal team.

Overzealous cops with an epic screwup.

Quote:
The city of Los Angeles will pay $4.2 million to the two women injured when police mistakenly opened fire on their truck during the manhunt for Christopher Dorner, a disgruntled ex-LAPD police officer who killed four people in a rampage that kept Southern California on heightened alert for days.

"The deal is relatively a very simple, very clean deal. It's a win-win for both parties," Trutanich said. "It closes this chapter in Los Angeles and LAPD history on all issues."

The $4.2 million will be split between the two women "any way they want," Trutanich said.

Hernandez, 71, was shot twice in the back and Carranza, 47, was injured by broken glass.

Good for the women. Shooting at innocent civilians is unacceptable behavior for a police force, regardless of the circumstances.

This is Keynesian Economics on steroids.

This goes way beyond just breaking windows.

More like breaking all records of trying to insert and totally irrelevant point into a thread that has nothing to do with economics but rather placing punitive damages on parties who committed egregious negligence.

I'm sure the cops felt justified in the actions they took.

I thought the police are so well trained with guns that they could never shoot some random person and they are the only protection I need from the killers in this world. At least that is what many liberals on this forum want me to believe.
