City Council rejects $145K PTSD claim by former MPD sergeant involved in Jaleel Stallings beating
October 3, 2023
When a Minneapolis police officer claims post-traumatic stress disorder, they are likely to be met with a sizeable check from the city.
Elected officials have approved hundreds of such disability claims - even for cops with pending discipline related to serious misconduct on the force - at the urging of their attorneys.
But in a 4-1 vote without discussion on Monday, council members struck down the first proposed PTSD settlement by a police officer to come before the body in recent years.
