    OAKLAND, Calif. — A San Francisco Bay Area city will pay $1.2 million to settle a lawsuit filed by a burglary suspect who was left a paraplegic after being shot by a police officer.
    The Oakland 2.gif City Council approved the payment to Charles Davis Jr. during a closed session Tuesday night.
    Davis was suspected of burglarizing a church in 2007 when he was shot by the Oakland officer. Though Davis was unarmed, the officer said he mistook items that Davis was stealing from the church for a gun.
    Rick Simons, Davis' attorney, says the money will be used the help the 49-year-old Davis with the "basic needs" of living as a paraplegic.
    The settlement comes after the council voted on Sept. 22 to approve a $1.5 settlement payment to the family of a 20-year-old man shot and killed by an Oakland police officer in 2007.

    All burglers have a lead deficiency.

    California needs to figure out they shouldn't punish good buys and reward bad guys.

    We should sue them for defamation of character and suffering. . . for being part of the same nation.

    Besides the Teacher's Union, all of the wrecked police vehicles due to chases, and plenty of illegals that sap the state government of funds because the friggen liberals cant say 'no', I'd say its because as a state, it sucks. Just waiting for that oneeee littttttleeeeeeee earthquake that will send it to the Pacific depths...
