Not even close by comparison but my story is pretty funny.  After being taking down to the pretty fancy clink (for a town of 6k), the officers actually left and the bail dude couldn't let me out to sign the $40 bail note (Melons sweetly bailed me). He actually had to slide the paper under the door and then disassemble his pen to slide only the ink stick under the door at the largest opening in the door jamb.  It barely fit and I couldn't even laugh I was in such disbelief.  Shortly thereafter someone returned to the station house to release me and Melons took me home.  Oh and he was adamant that I return the ink stick to him before he would leave so I had to force it back under the door again.

But they didn't actually physically search me until after I had been actually in the clink and they wouldn't allow Melons to take my watch or even give me a sip of water when they arrested me, but they did manage to put their hands on their pistols once they discovered that I was career military.

WTF world?

And secondly I'd really like to know why the DEA has it's own cells?  Shit any real question as to why we're broke?

Use the local jails folks, how fucking difficult is it cooperate?

Some of the $4 million should be confiscated from the salaries of the idiots who locked him in there and forgot.

And he only got $4.1 mil? If he had been black it would have been $15 mil by the time the rabble had been roused.

Precisely, can you fucking imagine what that must have been like?  Hell if that had been a dog they would be in jail right now...

It's clear he settled early in the process.  Kneegrows would have dragged the process on and on, stating their opening proposal was a non-negotiable demand in the name of the African Diaspora, and used the rabble to try and pressure a settlement without negotiations.  By the time a $15 mil settlement was reached, the legal fees would have eaten up $14.75 mil of the total.

The Onion certainly knows how to dance the razor's edge between satire and reality....

That's comedy for you: if your jokes aren't based on reality then they're not funny. That's what Jon Stewart knows that Rush Limbaugh doesn't. Well, besides how not to be a fat obnoxious drug-addled asshole.

The tragedy is that the police shot at him a dozen times from point-blank range and he still walked away.

Yep, it's always a good idea to serve civil warrants at 1am

Im sure the officers were teed off because the family kept them outside for a (half) hour and told them they had the wrong address, said Brown, who is considering running for Congress.

That's all we fucking need!
