San Francisco settles police brutality lawsuit

The City has settled a police brutality claim that was caught on tape.

Earlier this month, the Board of Supervisors approved a settlement for Charles Haynes. Haynes, seen in this report being shoved around by Officer Paul Morgado, initially sued San Francisco for $1 million. He received$50,000.

The case may or may not be over for Morgado. On top of the allegations of brutality, he faced internal charges of lying about the incident in his report. Such accusations can land on officer square on the department’s Brady List.
