"Forgotten prisoner" gets 15 million dollars

14 posts in this topic

And people wonder why this country is cutting back on things like tuition assistance for military.

Where do you think this money comes from.....?

Should have paid this loser no more than 1k and snuffed it.

I hope they don't cut tuition assistance and you take some classes on morality.

I wish they would lock up your computer for that long.

2 years solitary for a DWI (with no trial) and nobody in the department gets disciplined.

There is the tragedy

How did they come up with the dollar amount? If you go to prison for the wrong reason the least they could do was pay the person at least whatever salary they lost plus bonuses and cost of living increase. That's the bare min tho.

I do think "punitive damages" get out of control in this country sometimes, but this is such a horrible story that I don't have much problem with the figure.

For the kind of ridiculous incompetence that spawned this story, those responsible probably ought to be locked up and left alone for two years themselves.

Oh and it's ok if we accidentally lock up the guy that works at McDonalds because that's only 20k a year...best not mess up on prosecuting those rich people though
