ere's some fun police brutality statistics. Some of these police misconduct settlement stats do not include the tens of millions paid in legal fees. This is just a handful of many cities that have paid out a ton of tax payer money.
Baltimore $11.5 million last 4 years, the reason this number is so “low” is because there is a $200,000 statutory limit in Maryland for most lawsuits against a municipality
Philadelphia paid more than $40 million last 5 years
LA $54 million last 4 years, includes negligence and other claims
New York City $428 million last 5 years, $732 million in legal costs mostly from claims of police abuse, negligence and hiring discrimination in just ONE year from June 2013-June 2014
Chicago $521 million last 10 years
