For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

In a negotiated settlement, Arizona police will pay the widow of Jose Guerena, murdered during a SWAT raid, $3.4 million.

The police settled because they knew that if the case had ever reached a jury, they would have lost hands down. I feel for the widow, as she probably had to settle now because she couldn’t wait the years necessary for a full victory in court.

    Considering that the the lawsuit involved, as far as I can tell, only the departments and NOT the officers themselves this could still give the family the chance to take this whole thing to court by just suing the officers involved.

    They do have 3 million in funds to finance quite a bit of court time and public support.

    The officers and prosecutor who asked for the warrant should be charged with murder by the feds. But we know that will NEVER happen. They will NEVER turn on a fellow law enforcement officer over something this small and trivial.
