Cops Raid Wrong Home, Shoot Innocent Woman Cowering In Closet 'Accidentally'; Absolve Themselves Of Responsibility & Loot Taxpayers For $650,000 To Pay Settlement

Chris | InformationLiberation

Nassau County, New York police officers raided the wrong home and shot an innocent woman in the chest while she reportedly cowered in a closet begging police not to shoot her. The police claim the officer who shot her with his assault rifle did so because his gun fired "accidentally."

Rather than risk trial, police chose instead to absolve themselves of any responsibility and loot taxpayers to pay the woman a $650,000 settlement.

Newsday reports:
A Hempstead woman shot by a Nassau County police officer searching for suspected drug dealers who lived in the apartment below her has reached a $650,000 settlement with the county, according to her attorney and court records.

Iyanna Davis was shot in 2010, once in the breast, by a bullet that then went through her abdomen and both thighs, by an officer who said his assault rifle went off accidentally, court records say. Davis was never charged with any crime and the officer was cleared by an internal police investigation of any wrongdoing.

[...]Davis' case was among those featured in a Newsday article looking into the Nassau police department's use of deadly force. The article said that shootings by the police were ruled by internal investigations to be justified, even when the circumstances may have been questionable.

Davis, who was 22 when she was shot, has said that when the officers burst into her building, she hid in a closet because she thought they were armed robbers. "I told them I was afraid and do not shoot me, and one officer screamed at me to put my hands above my head," she said in a deposition. "That's when I heard the shot and I felt myself sit down because the force actually knocked me back on my backside."

Though the actual police internal investigation is sealed because of a confidentiality agreement, Horn has said it was filled with "inaccuracies" in order to justify the shooting that he termed "reckless."

Among the inaccuracies was the claim that "had her jumping out of the closet," Horn has said.
Regardless of the facts, none of it matters as police have a "get out jail free card" in the form of looting taxpayers to pay out for their own criminal negligence.

99170 What I don't understand is why do these people settle?? If this had happened to me I would take this to a jury and drag the whole ugly disgusting thing through the media. As long as people settle its "Hey no harm, no foul...right!" and the cops walk away with a smile on their faces probably laughing about the whole thing.

$650,000 cash tax-free is a powerful motivator.

60240 It's not that they settle, it's that they don't have the resources to continue a drawn-out legal settlement. Plus they're dealing with pigs. Pigs with guns. And apparently a license to kill as well as a get out of jail free card.

149254 Had it been the "right" person the police had shot,
no doubt you wouldn't hear the gun had gone off accidentally,
you'd hear that they had to shoot because they were attacked

6948 There is not enough money in this world for me to "settle." I would not stop until the cop lost his job and his ability EVER to be a LEO anywhere!

I'd also press whatever charges I could that a civilian under the same situation would have been charged with...The "shield" does not protect you or place you above the law...

Until these douchebags are held accountable this will continue.
