City Council to Piss Away Money
A divided City Council committee today recommended paying nearly $2.3 million to the family of a teenager who was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer after the teen took part in a home invasion at the home of the officer's parents.
"I say we go to trial on this one," Ald. Bernard Stone (50th) said. " don't agree with the settlement on this one. . . I can't see paying the estate for an armed robber who invaded a home."
