Arizona city pays $8 million to family of unarmed man gunned down by cops as he begged for his life

1
An Arizona city reached an $8 million with the family of a Texas man gunned down by police nearly seven years ago in a hotel hallway.

Mesa police had responded in January 2016 to a report of a man pointing a rifle out of a hotel window and confronted Daniel Shaver in the hallway, and body camera footage showed the unarmed 26-year-old on his knees, begging for his life, when former officer Philip "Mitch" Brailsford opened fire five times, killing him, reported AZ Central.

Brailsford was fired shortly afterward for violating department policies, and Maricopa County prosecutors charged him with second-degree murder, but he was found not guilty in 2017 and temporarily rehired by the department to apply for a pension and then took medical retirement.

What needs to be done is when there is a payout for violations of department policy is the amount of the payout should be reduced in the budget for the next year.

Or, as an alternative, the cop(s) and the police union must pay it instead of the municipality.

And if a cop is fired and charged (even if acquitted), he never gets to be a cop again--anywhere. Not even a mall security guard. Screw the cop getting any pension--that money can go toward paying the payout, too.
Eventually I'll figure out this signature thing and decide what I want to put here.

Recently the LA County Board of Supervisors agreed to pay out $47.6 million to settle 5 lawsuits against the LA County Sheriff's Dept in deputy involved shootings. The current sheriff lost his reelection race, thankfully the county will have a new sheriff.

Ahh, the thin blue line and 'Omerta'...LE isn't there to help you. Get charged with murder, but get aquitted? Move over a few counties and get hired again.
