Victory.

Loveland police have agreed to pay $15,000 to a man who claimed his rights were violated in 2008 when officers temporarily took away the handgun he was carrying on his hip.

I'm a bit confused on the venue, was his only option Federal court?

Web sites are being sued even with reasonable legal protections in place.

the police are still saying they handled the situation appropriately. Idiots.

Fantastic. Too bad they have to pay up with taxpayer money, but what the heck, at least the money is going to a gun guy and not a welfare case I guess.

We need more of these wins. It would be great if there was a *little* personal responsibility on the individuals involved. Fired, made to pay part of the fine/judgement etc.

Depatriate those traitors to North Korea where they will have a glorious career in civil rights violations.

Sorry, I felt I had edited enough out to qualify fair use. Further, this was not one of the sources specified in Kestryll's warning.

I must admit, I had not seen your warning imposing the 1 para or less restriction.

I've spent much of my adult life dealing with Fair Use, FWIW.

Will strive for more "original art"...

(As an aside, I suspect this would be the WRONG website to sue...)

Those twits at R********n, unfortunately, haven't figured it out. Ultra cautious, for now, and respectful of others' copyrights always (as Fair Use is).

Back to the nonsense: C'mon...

Bill Miller, 72, filed suit in July 2010 in U.S. District Court in Denver alleging police violated his constitutional rights when they questioned him, seized his gun and emptied it of ammunition

72 year old man was threatening whom?
