The state has paid a man $150,000 to settle a lawsuit over two West Virginia State Police troopers in McDowell County allegedly using excessive force.
The federal lawsuit, and settlement, is the fourth that names Ralph Justus, who is no longer employed by State Police. The state has paid about $415,000 settling those cases.
The American Legion’s police officer of the year strikes again. I’ll bet they either stop giving that award out in the future, or they do some extreme vetting.
