    My pockets & my neighbors' are being lightened by another quarter million dollars to pay for this wanton abuse ...

    As far as I know, none of the police officers were ever disciplined in this case, so it'll just be business & thumping as usual in the neighborhoods. If you live in Minneapolis, prepare to dig ever deeper into your pockets to fund these assaults.

    Star Tribune: Family wins $225,000 settlement in lawsuit against Minneapolis police (Apr 6 2013)

    A family that sued a Minneapolis police over a 2011 raid of their home, one that led to the shooting of two dogs and a list of ugly allegations against officers, has won a $225,000 settlement, a city spokesman confirmed this week. The allegations laid out in James and Aisha Keten’s lawsuit against 15 members of the department portray the officers as cavalier and reckless, firing weapons at targets near children, screaming profanities and racial slurs, and taking cash from the family while searching for a rifle.
