    These costs are passed through to the city‘s residents and taxpayers. Bologna walks with no civil or criminal liability. Something deeply wrong. How did this sadist rise to a level of authority in the NYPD? How much money is he costing taxpayers?

    Will the NYPD ever learn that their gestapo fascist tactics are costing the tax payers millions in $$$. or do they care? I woulds say both. The only way to cease this abhorrent behavior is in cases where it‘s prima facie, lets not give the responsible defendant indemnification and even though the City or State must pay for the plaintiff to receive prompt compensation, let the defendant have to pay a substantial percentage of his wages and pension so that the Govt. can recoup the payout. I guarantee this will cut down on the brutality that the NYPD is so infamous for.
