Skip to comments.US cities to pay record $80m to people injured in 2020 racial justice protests

Cities across the US have agreed to pay out a total of more than $80m in settlements to protesters injured by police during 2020 racial justice protests – a figure experts believe is unprecedented and will rise further as many lawsuits are still playing out.
The brutal murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers on 25 May 2020 sparked the largest nationwide demonstrations since the civil rights era, as upwards of 26 million people gathered to protest racism and police brutality.
But, three years later, at least 19 US cities will pay more than $80m total to protesters who sustained various injuries as a result of law enforcement action, ranging from being teargassed to being shot with projectiles, and have filed dozens of civil lawsuits.

Just another communist WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION PROGRAM from the Dung Beetle Partys’ turd rollers. That’s all communist pigs do, steal from those who work for a living. Bass Turds.
Gee, I thought from the headline they were going to have to pay out to innocent citizens injured by the rioters that the cities allowed to run rampant. Paying the rioters is just a sick joke.
I’m guessing this is black people getting paid by white tax payers because black people did bad things to the black people. Because racism. Or Climate Change.
“Racial justice protests”? Code word for “violent riots by the left”.
And what of the billions in damages these miscreants foisted on small business across the country? Oh, wait, thats insured... /s
They should have used lethal rather than non-lethal force of AntiFa and BL(don’t really)M rioters and looters.
Money should be used - and it won’t be enough - to repair the destruction done by these violent anarchists.
“Paying the rioters is just a sick joke.”
That'll teach those cops not to go about enforcing the law just to protect people and property. /sarc
Floyd was a violent career criminal with a long history of arrests and convictions and prison time.
Fools and their money soon part company.
Question: how many of those cities have Democrats running their government?
“Fools and their money soon part company”
Correction. Fools and YOUR money are soon parted.
[[The brutal murder of George Floyd]]
Does setting fires earn entitlements?
You can’t fix stupid.
And, this is all paid for by the states. These are Covid relief funds that were promised by the DNC — if an only if BeijingBiden is installed into the WHouse.
“The brutal murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers...”
Quit reading right there.
More government grift and fraud going to their preferred people.
