A federal jury Tuesday awarded a tech salesman $90,000 in an excessive force case that his lawyer claims reflects a shift in public opinion about police.
"Juries are not giving San Jose police the benefit of the doubt anymore," said lawyer Anthony Boskovich, who represented the salesman, Aleksandr Binkovich.
The officer in this case, Bruce Barthelemy, has been in at least two officer-involved shootings in the past few years, once saving a colleague who came under fire and another time killing a driver who was coming at him and other officers.

Low class for the city attorney to say the jury got it wrong
The jury is always right, justice was done

Gee, I wonder why? Perhaps it is because of too many dead dogs or could it be too many department approved shootings? Whatever the reason the change in opinion is because of the cops, all cops, behavior while on duty.
Boskovich, Binkovich....What are the chances?
Yes, highly unethical. Could result in discipline (suspension, disbarment, at least repimand)
‘The jury is always right, justice was done’
said OJ Simpson.
Hey, if you want to go there, the prosecution did a miserable job. The case was rushed to trial before all the evidence was developed and on top of it, the prosecution lacked focus and its theories were contradictory and made no sense. OJ may indeed have been guilty, most likely he was, but the jury was correct, the case was not proved. Next question.
