Why did the City of Freguson, Missouri, and St. Anthony, Minnesota settle wrongful death lawsuit in the death of Mike Brown, and Philando Castile, if the police officer's shooting were justify.

because they didn't want a lengthy court case and legal fees. . OK was acquitted too . why risk an uninformed and unjustly sympathetic jury. . level of proof bar is many times lower than a criminal verdict .

Why paid anything if you believed nothing was done wrong. Grand Jury in Freguson was uninformed, because district attorney was working for the police officer, instead of the Brown family. Sound like excuses to coverup bad police behavior.

B, the recent settlements were reached instead of dragging out civil lawsuits. The standard of proof in a civil suit is basically 50% (more likely than not) whereas in a criminal proceeding it's more like 90% (beyond a reasonable doubt).

The attorneys involved in the counterpart civil cases can read the tea leaves based on the outcome of the criminal trial. If it was close and the evidence seems to present a >50% chance of loss in civil court, defense will often try to settle.

In the OJ case, remember the Goldmans sued for wrongful death after the criminal trial was over, and OJ lost...and probably still owes money to the Goldmans.

Settling often carries with it some stipulation of guilt or lack thereof. Usually the latter, as in, "I agree to pay you, but I do not admit to any guilt." POTUS settled a lot of his racial discrimination suits that way, btw.

C767f03aeb282b9660d8157840047228

It's often preferable to the defense to get the not-guilty part. If you go to court and lose, you are guilty unless you appeal, etc. Costs skyrocket, and the bad publicity is not retractable (if you're famous or a company for example).

Police are taxpayer supported, and so we would be paying for the defense attorneys in a civil suit. As a taxpayer, I think settling was the right thing to do. In MN they fired the officer immediately upon hearing the verdict, as well.

He had been on the usual paid leave since shooting Philando Castille... about an hour after the verdict the Minneapolis police department said, we're firing him because we don't want him on our force, and he shouldn't be a policeman anymore.

And in a weirdly disconnected yet supportive maneuver, the city's Gay Pride parade organizers told the police they were not welcome to join the parade this year, because of the Castille incident. And the police chief is gay! Burn.
