The parents of Ferguson thug Michael Brown have to be all smiles today after hitting the ghetto lottery on Tuesday.
Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden both sued the city and others after their son was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson in self-defense. The younger Brown had just committed a robbery at a local convenience store, and was stopped by Wilson because he refused to get out of the middle of the road, then Brown attacked the officer and was subsequently killed.
However, despite the fact they failed as parents and their child thought he was a gangbanger, both of which contributed to his untimely demise, Brown and McSpadden sued for wrongful death…and they won, big time.
On Tuesday a federal judge approved a settlement between the parents and the defendants for $1.5 million dollars.
That’s one hell of a reward for a series of failures, eh?
From the Daily Mail:
Ferguson, Missouri’s city attorney said Friday the settlement amount to the family of Michael Brown was $1.5 million and ‘was paid by its insurance carrier on behalf of multiple defendants.’
Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden sued the city, former Police Chief Tom Jackson and former police officer Darren Wilson in 2015. They argued that the death of their son deprived them of financial support through his future potential wages.
Financial terms of the settlement approved by U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber were originally undisclosed.
Their lawsuit also described the police culture in Ferguson as hostile to black residents, and said Wilson used excessive and unreasonable force in fatally shooting Brown during an August 9, 2014, confrontation on a street.
Ferguson, Jackson and Wilson denied the allegations.
Don’t forget, Wilson was cleared of all wrongdoing by not only his department, but by a hostile U.S. Justice Department looking for a scalp to prove all cops are racist. Despite this, they still couldn’t find any reason whatsoever to charge him, so instead they opened an investigation into racially biased police and court practices which was based on the far-left’s broad definition of racism and subsequently neutered both the police and courts.
The reforms and measures demanded by the Justice Department are expected to cost north of $2 million and take years to implement.
So, thanks to one lone thug who refused to have respect for law enforcement, combined with our crooked ass court system that rewards people for stupidity, the struggling City of Ferguson is due to be out over $3.5 million.
How lovely. No wonder our nation is so screwed…
