That’s the only option and don’t expect much compensation regardless.
Remember how James Blake, the former pro tennis player, got tackled for standing casually next a hotel lobby? Or Thabo Sefolosha, the NBA player, who got his leg broken for standing too close to the perimeter of a crime scene? Which also ruined his NBA team’s chances at the championship because he was a key defensive stopper on the 2nd best team in the East.
Both are half black model citizens that were literally just standing there. They both had enormous resources to fight the NYPD and both settled after vowing to fight to the end. The police will never admit wrongdoing.
