KempLog is reporting here that the City of Bloomington has settled its part in the taser case for half a million dollars. For those who have not heard of the case, there's a good background story in the Bloomington Alternative and another report on the settlement in the Indianapolis Star. (The short of it is that a 47-year old, mentall ill man was shocked something like 6 times by a taser at the Monroe County jail. He died.)
I don't usually try to cover news, because others do it a great deal better than I ever would or could. But this awful story from my back yard deserves all the publicity it can get.
