Former Union College student received $500k settlement from police brutality incident

“A former Union College student has received a $500,000 police brutality settlement for an incident that occurred last year following the filing of a federal lawsuit in U.S. District court.

The Schenectady City Council in New York unanimously approved the payout last week after 20-year-old Broderick Shea, of Pennsylvania, said he was brutalized on April 12, 2014.

Police had responded to unruly crowds celebrating his school’s national hockey championship and confronted 400 to 500 students gathered on Union Avenue. Officers claimed that they were going to allow the students to party if things remained civil but that the crowd began hurling bottles at them and vehicles.” — CopBlock
