Yes the force was excessive, but I also look at that video and see a very rude and disrespectful woman.

I'm hearing a lot of people saying that 11.3 mil is way too much. I think it's more of a statement than anything else. That 11.3 million dollar lawsuit is going to get a lot of attention from local politicians. Hopefully, this type of thing will make Yonkers officers a little less heavy handed if they know that the slightest step over the line will cost them their jobs, and their brothers in blue their reputation.
She probably won't get the full sum, but I bet she'll get a few mil at least.
For her it's about the money, for the rest of us, it's about our safety. I hope she gets as much as possible.
The Yonkers Police Department is standing by Officer Simoes. Internal Affairs cleared him of misconduct and he's recently been added to a list for promotion to detective.

Yeah great she gets a bunch of money but the taxpayers pay for it. You want to make a statement put the guy in jail for a few years for assault. Then give her a million and that would make all well but this officer needs to be punished. Its not fair the taxpayers should have to pay and the cop gets off scotch free.

They look the otherway, or run. They don't attack anyone unless they know they have zero chance of losing (50 rounds into a car full of unarmed black guys, anyone?).
