Well, so much for that payday

The family of a man who was shot dead by a US sheriff’s deputy have been awarded $4 (£3) in damages following a wrongful death lawsuit.

Gregory Vaughn Hill Jr, 30, was shot through his garage door in 2014 by the deputy in St Lucie County, Florida, in response to a noise complaint.

He was found with an unloaded gun, but whether he was holding it is disputed.

A jury ruled that no excessive force was used and Mr Hill was responsible for his own death because he was drunk.

    found with an unloaded gun. ssshhhuuurrreee. If he was shot through a garage door, how did the cop know if he was armed or not? He was drunk at the time and making a lot of noise, which I guess noisy drunk in public is now a death by cop sentence? The lawyer that represented the family should be disbarred for mal-practice.

    Once again the thugs with costume jewelry get away with murder.
