Ramarley Graham’s Family To Receive $3.9 Million From NYC For Police Shooting – HuffingtonPost

The Political Agitator response: How many more senseless murders and/or false reports will it take?

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City agreed Friday to pay $3.9 million to the family of a black Bronx teenager shot to death by a white police officer in 2012.

The deal settled a federal lawsuit brought by the family of 18-year-old Ramarley Graham.

“This was a tragic case,” said New York Law Department spokesman Nicholas Paolucci. “After evaluating all the facts, and consulting with key stakeholders such as the NYPD, it was determined that settling the matter was in the best interest of the city.”

Attorney Royce Russell said the family will comment Monday.

Graham died after he was shot once in the chest in February 2012 in a tiny bathroom in the three-family home where he lived with his grandmother and other relatives. (Source: Read more)
