The bill for some very bad policing comes due

Our good friend Joel Rosenberg alerts us to the news that the state of Minnesota will now be spending about 3 million dollars of their taxpayers' money to compensate the many innocent victims of the incompetent and abusive thug-ridden as well as scandal-plagued (and now disbanded because of those very factors) Metro Gang Strike Force:

"After victims are compensated, any money left over will create a fund to educate officers on community policing within minority populations."

Because, you know, cops need to be informed that it's just as wrong to personally profit by ripping off innocent minorities as it is to rob white people.  Sheesh.

"Attorneys for the Strike Force say in court documents that their clients deny liability but agree the settlement is fair."

Of course they think it's fair.  The money isn't coming out of their pockets.

The members of this rogue organization aren't out of the woods yet.  The Justice Department is still investigating the many crimes allegedly committed by this "gang" of out-of-control thieves, and we wouldn't be surprised if some of them indeed ended up in cells right next to the gangbangers they were supposed to be targeting in the first place.
