Small Town Must Pay $1 Million for Cop Slamming Woman Into Concrete

fccar

The latest lawsuit to be settled against a former cop accused of police brutality, brings the total amount paid out to his victims to over a million dollars.

Carmen Colon was an employee of the Lawnside Borough, New Jersey and had at least three federal lawsuits against her.




In all of the cases she denies carrying out any civil rights violation as suggested by the prosecutors.

The most recent payment of $ 120,000 was in relation to an incident that took place in September 2010.

Tiffany Gilmore was driving home from a supermarket with her two children, when Colon pulled her after a traffic stop.


She says the cop threw her against her car several times in front of her children.

At the police station the aggressive officer then shoved her against a concrete wall in the police station.

According to Gilmore, she was kept in a holding cell for over six hours.

All charges against her were eventually dropped.

Gilmore filed a lawsuit in 2012 and the case was resolved just days ago.

Colon worked for the Camden city police Department before joining the Lawnside Borough. Her former employer had dismissed her after claiming her work was not satisfactory.

In fact, Gilmore’s lawsuit says she was fired because she was a “substandard employee”.

Another civilian filed a lawsuit against Colon in December 2011. This case was settled for $ 740,000.

Carl Pearson, the owner of a local tavern, claimed that she had issued tickets for several vehicles that were legally parked.




This is the case that led Colon to quit her job in 2013.

In exchange for her resignation the Lawnside police department agreed to dismiss charges of filing a false report and tampering with public records relating to the episode at the local inn.

However, she did not leave without a fight, she sued the borough and ended up receiving a payment of $150,000 – which included wages, damages and legal fees.

It is noteworthy that Lawnside is a small community of around 3,000 people.

    This cop had no business being employed by Lawnside. She did not fit the landscape. As mentioned above she was fired from Camden City. Someone in political power saw fit to do someone a favor and had her placed in Lawnside where she showed her a$$.

    MFer’s should actually look into who they are hiring.. This also brings up a great point.. Why do Police not have to have personal liability insurance? Doctors do in case they mess up and get sued. Why not Police? This way their records will determine whether they stay employed as Police or not. If they cannot get insurance because their record is atrocious than they cannot work as a Police Officer. Problem solved!!

    Good. If those “fine” citizens did not pay attention to their employees, if they were “absentee landlords”, let them pay out of their asses. Put a chunk of a lien on every home. People need to pay attention to their govt’s. And also demand an end to qualified immunity. No more police unions. And malpractice insurance for cops. Those that read this and say I’m anti law and order you are either a cop or willfully ignorant. Those cops that “feel” put upon, get another job. Also most cops are not, can not be required to take a drug test. For booze, pot, coke, or roids. That has to end also. A tyranny is a govt that has rules for themselves and different rules for the unwashed masses. This also needs to end.
