David Clash-Miller will be discussed. We will look at what happened and the processes he went through to get the verdict he had today.
Who is David Clash-Miller?
He is a 20 year old man from Wisconsin.
He has been awarded a “$1.1 million in a settlement”.
The settlement followed a video which captured police officers punching him severally in 2019.
This was after he suffered a mental crisis at a foster home.
He was only 17 at the time when the police from Madison were called in to take him to a mental facility.
The home security camera showed how the police officers allegedly slammed him against a door.
They forced him into a couch and then, kept a spit hood over his head.
The punching is said to have continue according to his suit.
His attorney,Bob Gingras said:
“Hopefully, it will make the police accountable and thank goodness we had a video in the home.”
The officers who made him suffer those punches were not criminally charged or discipline.
