Again, I'll probably get a lot of shit for this rant but I can't help it...
Some 18 year kid (I say kid lightly, he's actually a man) in the Bronx got caught spray painting on a road sign. Then ran from the cops and got hurt. He says the cops punched him and caused permanent damage and is now suing.
So let me get this straight. The kid claims he didn't fight the cops that the cop punched him for no reason. He couldn't even look the newscaster in the face when he was telling his story. Now this kid get to be rich for fighting the cops who were trying to arrest him for doing something wrong. He's 18!! What the fuck was he doing spray painting on a road sign?!?! If he wasn't doing something wrong he wouldn't have been hurt. Then to top it off guess who gets to pay not only to clean the road sign he defaced but to pay for his settlement with the city?? Us taxpayers who have to put up with these shitty kids that have no respect for anything around them have to pay for it!!
What kind of message is this sending to kids? In my eyes it says to do something wrong, fight the cops, get hurt, sue and not have to work for a living!!
