A surfer who was hurt when a Los Angeles-area police officer rammed and shot up his truck during the manhunt for cop-turned-killer Christopher Dorner will receive $1.8 million.

...

The 38-year-old Perdue was on his way to surf in February 2013 when a Torrance officer mistook his pickup for Dorner’s, rammed it and riddled it with bullets. Perdue wasn’t shot but suffered head and spine injuries.

Do any of the police involved have to pay with any of their own money?

Of course, as per usual, the taxpayers will pick up the tab.

This was the story where LEOs mistook a blue Toyota pu for a grey Nissan Titan pu in broad daylight.

The two women in the blue pickup got $4 million last year. The had their warning lights on as they crawled down a street delivering newspapers.

I think that all governments should require police officers, at any level of government, to carry “malpractice” insurance just like doctors, nurses, lawyers, etc. A few too many malpractice payouts and the police officer would not be insurable and thusly not employable.

Every one of these gestapo agents belongs on death row, instead they will probably retire early on a disability claim for emotional distress.

Understandable. It had 4 tires, a grill and windshields - just like Dorner's vehicle.

Absolutely! It's a standard graphic for the JBT ping list.

I got lazy and didn't search for the actual surfer dude's trunk.

Bad habit. Thanks for calling me on it.

And yet the ‘good’ cops remain silent to what is going on. They want us to support them, but they won’t support us against the thugs, morons, cowards, and criminals among them. They will always choose Team Blue over right and wrong.

Number one, any cop that threw lead in that pickup should have been fired.

It is sad that the tax payers have to pick up the tab for idiot cops, but maybe they should pay more attention to the hiring of idiot cops and who hires them.

Unless it’s the actual officers (and possibly their union) the monies are coming from the taxpayers.

And the officer involved received a free pass from the D.A. saying they considered the totality of the situation and his actions were justified.

They have been adjudged by their respective D.A.’s for the totality of the situation and their actions were justified.

They must be 007 cops with a license to kill.

what happened to the two women, mother and daughter delivering newspapers, that had their SUV shot full of holes by panicky cops? The mother was seriously wounded and the daughter unscathed. What kind of settlement did they get? They should have owned the city for that trigger happy episode. The women’s vehicle was the WRONG color! Were the cops color blind as well as trigger happy?

The prior professed need for support of the citizenry is no longer necessary where they no longer consider themselves part of the People, but rather dominant overseers of human cattle.

Kinda. Same manhunt. This was a few hours after the blue pickup incident. I haven’t seen a description of surfer dude’s vehicle.

I can't get over the fact that he could've had a hostage and they shot the center
and passenger sides. Even worse, that was the wrong truck.

And, as the taxpayers have it within their power to reign in their local gendarmerie they fully earned the monetary loss.

Ah yes, it was one of those Hondas that does not even remotely resemble the regular-pickup-appearance of the Nissan that was the subject of the hunt.

You’d think cops would know vehicle recognition as a condition of their job.

The Torrance police chief actually praised the cops for their *bravery* in ramming Perdues pickup. To this day, the Torrance police will not admit to any errors or wrongdoing in this case. Unbelievable.

Sadly, they deserve it. The police were going nuts and there wasn’t enough evidence that they were in immediate danger from these people. We have to pay out. And this blurb doesn’t even say that the one woman was indeed shot.

Ha ha ha! I loved those signs that day.

Such an eerie day in L.A. Everywhere you went was Dorner’s photo and info on every electronic billboard. Police presence was everywhere and they were visibly anxious.
