In today’s Washington Post, there is a story about one of the officers involved in the attack on Hatian immigrant Abner Louima being released on $1 million bond. Louima, you’ll remember, was treated by New York’s finest to an asstickle with a broom handle.
This is an actual paragraph from this story. I am not making this up.
“Louima eventually received an $8.75 million settlement from the city of New York and the police union, and moved last year to the Miami area with his wife and three children—in part, he said, to try to put his painful past behind him.”
