Can I just say Something


St. Paul police kicked a man in the face as he lay on the ground and tried to explain that his mother couldn’t quickly get to the ground because she’d recently had surgery, a lawsuit says. Police then shot a “flash-bang” grenade directly at the woman, setting her afire and seriously burning her legs, according to the lawsuit.

The St. Paul City Council is slated to approve a $400,000 settlement in the lawsuit Wednesday, Nov. 7, equaling the largest payout in a St. Paul police lawsuit, according to the city attorney‘s office.

Six other police misconduct cases have led to nearly a half-million dollars in payouts this year, according to the St. Paul city attorney’s office. The city also recently settled for $385,000 a data privacy lawsuit involving St. Paul officers.
