Birmingham, Alabama taxpayers just got tapped for $460,000 for excessive force that they didn’t personally commit. This article doesn’t afford them so much as the courtesy of being apprised whether anything has been done to prevent a reoccurrence of their pockets being picked.

Preventing a reoccurrence is pretty important, given that if any of the taxpayers get abused by an officer, all they can expect to receive is chump change and the humiliation of having their attorney(s) laugh all the way to the bank.
