Just so you know, the jury was persuaded by the jury foreman (former police officer....go figure). We wanted to rule in favor of the plaintiffs, and are ashamed we didn't. One year later two people are dead because the Belmont police were allowed to continue their illegal campaign against innocent people. Why don't you yell "HOORAY" to the two families that lost their loved ones due to the BPD? "Keep up the good work"? Maybe NOW you can see that the police WERE out of control. Too bad it's too late.
