What Cleveland's DOJ Settlement Could Look Like
Monday reports suggest the Department of Justice has reached a settlement with Cleveland. What might it entail?By Jasmine Bailey | May 26, 2015
As tension continues to grow between Cleveland residents and authorities, the city reportedly reached a settlement Monday with the U.S. Department of Justice over the conduct of its police officers.
First reported by The New York Times, the settlement comes just two days after Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo was acquitted of all charges in the shooting deaths of an unarmed couple in November 2012.
Following the verdict, the Justice Department announced it would further investigate "the testimony and evidence presented" at trial.
