Default $37M!?! Am I missing something !

So the family of Korryn Gaines, Was awarded $37 million yesterday in a wrongful death suit. Now perhaps I’m missing something, and if I am please chime in, but what the **** is wrong with this world?! She had a traffic run-in with the law where she acted out of her mind, kept telling the officers they were going to have to killer, kept telling her children in the car to fight the police, that police kill people like them, and all kinds of absurd things.
Somewhere down the line, the Baltimore Police Department attempted to serve her and another male at the residence with warrants for their arrest, and she as after police arrived she was loading a shotgun on the floor with a child sitting next to her as the police stand at the door. Reports are After 10 minutes knocking they retrieve the key from the landlord who then open the door. Upon opening the doorShe had a child in one hand and a shotgun in the other! Sounds like a terror tactic that Isis and other sick *******s use! Small children as human shields, or possibly she was thinking the police would not fire at her while holding her child so she could in turn fire at them! The report is after several hours negotiation she raised the shotgun at the police told them she was going to kill them and they opened fire, rightfully so. Now can someone explain to me how in the world herFamily was just awarded $37 million!!!?!!!

Did you happen to see the jury panel? That may help you understand.

Baltimore is an area that is in total chaos. One day they hate the Po - lice and the next day they want the police to save them from the criminals. Worst part is they all get to vote.

Probably could have settled the case for <10 million. Would have been a bargain over the jury award.

This is absolutely the solution:

2Ch 7:12 Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, "I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.
2Ch 7:13 "If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
2Ch 7:14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2Ch 7:15 "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
2Ch 7:16 "For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.

Short of this, we shall go the way of Sodom and Gomorrah, The Roman Empire and so many more civilizations who have turned their backs on the God of the universe...

I pray for an awakening... It is as plain as can be that God is near to removing His bless ing from this once great Nation that honored and lived by His ways...

This false narrative against LEO is sickening. Raising your children that the police are the bad guys and out to kill civilians is appalling and disgusting, and boils my blood!

Lots of crazy jury awards---like the recent trial in SA involving a family suing a funeral home because they lost their daughter's body---$6 mil+ award.

Or, the one in NYC awarding the graffiti artists $7 mil because the building owner knocked down the defaced buildings to build on the property.

Jury members thinking that "if I'm ever in one of these, maybe folks will remember and I'll hit the jackpot?"

I am ignorant as to how such awards are paid out. Curious if you would share your knowledge on how these type of settlements work. I am aware that most attorneys take 40% right of the bat.

States are capped at the amount they have to pay to plaintiffs. Even though her family was awarded 37mil they might only have to pay $250k.

Thereís a lot of false chatter out there from the left thatís been debunked on this one. Iím sure youíll come across most of it.

This is all crazy. She obviously was mentally ill and accurately predicted the outcome( that she would die and her children would be paid)Too bad they couldn’t get her help and now we are paying for an accurate response to a real threat that might have been avoided. As others have said, it’s a sign of the times and of what’s to come. There’s a real need to figure out how to deal with mental illness that is so prevalent in our society.
