Light It Up

From Reuters, Two police officers involved in a videotaped beating of a black teenager that sparked nationwide outrage have been awarded $2.4 million by a Los Angeles jury that found they were unfairly disciplined.

The larger jury award of $1.6 million went to Jeremy Morse who was fired from the Inglewood police force immediately after the 2002 incident in which he was captured on an amateur videotape slamming a 16 year-old onto a squad car and punching him in the jaw after a routine vehicle stop.
