Ferguson Cops to pay 7,500 dollars to each protester they tear gassed!


Although Michael Brown's family have never received justice for the all out murder of their son,, Michael Brown. Wrongs are being made right in Ferguson most recently with the scathing DOJ report that details blatant racist practices permeating the Ferguson Police Department and Local Municipalities.

Now protesters who suffered after being bombarded with  tear gas, some in their own front yards, will receive compensation. Check the story in JuneTeenth!

 A settlement this week has awarded monetary compensation to Ferguson, Missouri protesters from last year. Each protestor is to be awarded $2,500 each from the three separate law-enforcement agencies that had used tear gas against them. That amounts to around $7,500 per protester.

Police had fired tear gas at protesters in the riots following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. According to The Saint Louis Post-Dispatch, police agencies have also agreed as part of the settlement of a federal lawsuit to limit the use of tear gas and other chemical means on future demonstrators. Lawyers represented St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar and Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ronald S. Johnson.
After issuing a temporary restraining order on police after a Dec. 11 hearing, United States District Judge Carol Jackson had been expected to dismiss the lawsuit Thursday, but maintaining supervision of compliance through Jan. 1, 2018. The restraining order had required that in the future, police had to give “reasonable” warning before using tear gas on protesters.
