Over 200 Minneapolis police officers quit after being smeared, attacked (some verbally, others physically) after the George Floyd death almost one year ago. Now, the city of Minneapolis who paid $27 million to George Floyd’s family (before the end of the trial of Chauvin) will pay $35 million to police officers who sued the city of Minneapolis over the violence and targeted attacks against police. GOOD! Ilham Omarville should be dishing out the money to anyone who was attacked by AntiFA and Black Lives Matters Marxist terrorists.
$35M estimated in settlements with Minneapolis police who left after 2020 unrest
Minneapolis city leaders have begun signing off on large workers’ compensation packages for dozens of police officers who left the department after the death of George Floyd and subsequent civil unrest.
Attorney Ron Meuser claims his clients, former Minneapolis cops and firefighters, would give up any settlement payouts and immediately return to the job if they could.
“I think they felt for a long, long time that the community doesn’t want them, doesn’t respect them and doesn’t care about them,” said Meuser.
Meuser says he represents about 200 men and women, the vast majority who took an oath to serve and protect, but now they claim injuries suffered over the last year make that no longer possible. Some of those injuries are physical, while others are mental, including post-traumatic stress following the police killing of George Floyd, the rioting, and torching of the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct.
Meuser is currently settling workers’ compensation packages with City Hall as his clients officially leave their jobs, including one for $250,000. The city is spreading out the payouts over several years to ease the financial impact. One council member told FOX 9 the mass exodus of officers is alarming.
“We’re pretty constrained in what we can say publicly about issues that include private information from city employees,” said Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender during a city council committee meeting last month.
