Black NYPD Cop Awarded $15 Million After False Arrest & Beating By Fellow Officers

A federal jury has awarded a Black New York police officer $15 million after he was falsely arrested, beaten, and had his hand fractured by fellow officers at his Queens home in 2010, reports the New York Daily News.

Off-duty Officer Larry Jackson, 45, was “beaten with batons, choked, kicked, sprayed in the face with pepper spray and had his hand fractured during the 2010 attack, according to his lawyer, who blames race biases on escalating the incident,” writes DNAInfo New York.

The Brooklyn Federal Court jury decided Wednesday that Jackson was entitled to punitive damages from 12 individual officers for a total of $2.6 million, in addition to $12.5 million in damages.

The Queens District Attorney’s Office refused to prosecute the arresting officers following an investigation, according to The New York Post.
