Police Misconduct Case Resolved

A family received $3 million in a wrongful death settlement with the city of New York. It all started in 1999 when Diallo, an African immigrant, was shot 19 times and killed by police. He was unarmed. It was thought that Diallo was pulling a gun as he reached for his wallet and that̢۪s when the officers shot. It was a case of police misconduct, but the officers were acquitted of criminal charges.
