Leave it to a liberal dem to set limits on how much a city can be sued for negligence. What a cover up!

Not a lot of information is true, but the fact that they falsified reports to cover it up should be grounds for IMMEDIATE termination!

How aweful for that lady and those that begged for help for her while she lay dieing on the jailroom floor.

Provides few additional answers and makes me really question this "monitor" process. The way this was handled, did absolutely nothing to ensure that it could not happen again next weekend. Maybe it will be a diabetic that appears drunk due to their blood glucose level, maybe it will be a skateboarder that gave the police attitude when after he crashed (and lacerated his liver & spleen) on the 16th Street Mall, maybe it will be you or someone you care about...

Don't worry, the "monitor" will follow up and report any technical problems the video record deletes.
