Freddie Gray Family Lawyer Billy Murphy Speaks Out On $6.4 Million Wrongful Death Settlement

The attorney for the family of Freddie Gray is applauding the Baltimore mayor for helping spearhead a $6.4 million settlement with the family after Gray was fatally injured in police custody.

Attorney Billy Murphy said Wednesday that if a lawsuit had been filed, it could have taken years to play out in the courts. He says the settlement is civil justice for the Gray family. Murphy declined to say what percentage of the settlement deal he will receive.

Murphy also says the mayor has pledged to start a pilot program where police in the Western District neighborhood, where Gray was arrested, will wear body cameras. He says the cameras will help drastically reduce police misconduct as well as frivolous complaints from citizens.

So how much $ will the police officers who have been killed in the line of duty by the bad guys, like in ambushes, receive? They were just doing their jobs...
