To the extent as may be shown by the evidence through discovery, plaintiffs' injuries and damages, if any, were caused by the deliberate, criminal conduct of plaintiffs, and such criminal conduct supersedes any and all negligence or liability,if any, on the part of these defendants.
A nearly $1-million settlement has been reached between Habersham County and the family of Bounkham “Baby Bou Bou” Phonesavanh, the toddler injured last May when deputies threw a flashbang grenade into his crib, government officials said.
An attorney for the family, however, said the case “continues to be litigated.”
The settlement was announced Tuesday evening by Habersham County Commission Chairwoman Andrea Harper and, according to documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, would include a structured payout of $964,000. The money would be paid out as part of a $1-million insurance policy maintained by the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office and breaks down as follows:
• $538,000 paid to Baby Bou Bou’s parents, Alecia and Bounkham Phonesavanh, to cover medical expenses
• $200,000 set aside “to provide for the schedule of future periodic payments” to the todller
• $137,000 paid to Baby Bou Bou himself for “personal injuries”
• $62,000 to Alecia Phonesavanh for “having been subjected to emotional distress”
• A total of $27,000 split evenly among the Phonesavanh’s three other children
In a statement issued on behalf of the county, Habersham County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Andrea Harper said the agreement was “not a perfect solution” but one that “is as fair as possible under the circumstances.”
“Over the last few months the Board of County Commissioners has sought a way to bring some measure of closure to this matter while doing what is right, both for the Phonesavanh family and the law enforcement officers involved,” Harper said. “For that reason we have reached a limited settlement with the Phonesavanhs that allows for a payment to them in exchange for protection of the officers and the county.”
This is a hoax coming out of Alex "I cant stop lying" Jones..
This is old news... apparently Alex Jones cannot manage to read a paper before spouting every lie he can think up.
These defendants show that under all of the facts and circumstances, their conduct was discretionary in nature, was not in violation of any clearly established constitutional right of which a reasonable officer would have had fair notice, and was likewise objectively reasonable, thereby entitling these defendants to qualified immunity.
The average person hasn't been able to keep their BS detector updated in relation to the speed at which BS travels. That and so many people seem to love being outraged now. It's more fun than realizing things are multi faceted and a grey area most of the time.
