BUSTED: The Citizen's Guide to Surviving Police Encounters
(December 22, 2014) How a YouTube Video Helped a NY Woman Learn To Properly Deal With Rogue Police and Win $1.12 Million
The 'right wing' woman in New York who was awarded $1.12 million dollars by a jury in a federal civil rights lawsuit, has an interesting history which in all probability, helped lead her to victory. Note this $1.12 million is merely the compensatory damages, she is still eligible for punitive damages as well and the litigation is ongoing. I am so happy for Nancy Genovese, as I have had some e-mail exchanges with her over the years and know she is a good sincere person.
Last week, The Guardian reported "Genovese said in a statement provided by Brewington that she was relieved that "the jury heard the truth and that I now have had the chance to clear my name. If this can happen to me, and officers can abuse their power like this, I can only imagine how other people who are not as fortunate as me have been treated.
