City of Minneapolis challenging juries ruling in police shooting
MINNEAPOLIS -- The City of Minneapolis is challenging a jury's $1.8 million award to the family of a man fatally shot by police in 2006.
Attorneys for the city and the family of Dominic Felder are scheduled to meet in federal court Friday. The city argues the civil award is "grossly excessive" and that a new trial should be ordered, or the award reduced to $105,300 or less.

If you read the rest of the article, you'll find that a grand jury found no wrongdoing on the officer's part.
So, wait a minute....they acted within their scope, and were justified in their shooting...and the city wants the award reduced to $105 thousand?????? Hows about NOTHING!?No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13
