$2,000,000 lawsuit
« on: August 03, 2014, 11:32:48 PM »
That's what an Ohio open carrier is suing for after police falsely arrested him for "Inducing Panic" by open carrying on his bicycle.  He was subsequently charged in court with inducing panic.  The prosecution ignored motions for discovery.  Eventually the prosecutor dismissed the inducing panic charge, but then attempted to charge the open carrier with concealing because in his report, the cop said the carrier was CCing.  However, security camera footage showed his gun and holster were fully open carried and the grand jury "no billed" him when they saw the camera footage.  The prosecutor had refused to drop the charges.

You need to read the complaint.  It is something else.  For example, the arresting officer stated that it was “lucky he didn’t resist”, because Ptlm. Meadows would have “shot and killed [him] right there” and that he “didn’t want to deal with that before his vacation.”

There will always be a few news articles and more than a few blog/forum posts on a lawsuit filing, but most of them, like this
one, result in zero news write-ups when resolved.

Since it was a federal suit, I might have found the settlement amount in PACER, or the docket might have just said that the plaintiff motioned for dismissal. Got lucky finding this one in web published city council minutes.

That may just be the city's insurance deductible, or it may be the full settlement amount.
When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. Luke 11:21

Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."  Luke 22:36
