Oh, this is gonna be good

MIRAMAR, Fla. – A lawsuit on behalf of a United Parcel Service driver killed during a hostage situation names 6 police agencies alleging that they behaved negligently. The lawsuit was also filed on behalf of another man, seriously hurt in the chase and shootout that ended on the Miramar Parkway. The suit alleges that Carlos Lara was seriously hurt when bullets hit his car as police used his vehicle as a shield during the gunfight.

  1. I remember that a high level case in the past ruled that the police have no responsibility to protect any citizen in any circumstance. So yea, interesting how this will run out.

  4. They will have to prove that the cops were grossly negligent, not just plain negligent for this to fly. With the facts given, this is to high a bar.

    I would never take that case because it probably cannot be won.
