Children, Family, and Friday: Jury Awards Korryn Gaines' Family $38 Million In Civil Case Against Baltimore County @balleralert MOR t ASSO Jury Awards Korryn Gaines' Family $38 Million In Civil Case Against Baltimore County - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A jury ruled on Friday the family of Korryn Gaines, the 23-year-old Baltimore mother who was fatally shot by a police officer in 2016, will receive $38 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two years ago, Gaines became a victim of police brutality when officers entered her home on the morning of Aug. 1, 2016 attempting to arrest her on disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and multiple traffic violation charges. The mother originally refused to open the door, but police got a key from the landlord and walked in. They came in to find Gaines on the floor holding a shot gun along with her then 5-year-old son, Kodi. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident became a six-hour standoff between Gaines and police. Gaines who aimed her gun at officer Royce Ruby gave him the right to justly shooting the young mother. Ruby ended up killing Gaines and injuring her son. This Friday, an all female jury of six made a ruling after just three hours. They decided Kodi would be awarded $32.8 million, Gaines’ daughter, Karsyn Courtney, would be awarded $4.5 million, and her father and mother will each receive $300,000. The family was then awarded an additional $300,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the three-week trial, the jury had came down to these deliberations: the first shot the officer had fired was not reasonable; they then distributed damages on the grounds that Baltimore County had violated the Gaines’ civil rights and had committed battery on the mother and son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This win is for all of my sisters in the movement who have lost their children to police violence,” Gaines’ mother, Rhanda Dormeus.

Family, Memes, and New Year's: While we're out celebrating with our loved ones this CNY, this Navy officer is not with his family but out at sea, protecting us back home Chew Chun Cheong 57 mins. Lunar New Year Eve, 15 Feb 2018 Yesterday as our fellow Chinese Singaporeans prepared and enjoyed their reunion meals with their loved ones, members of the #vanguards donned our uniforms, bade our families farewell to sail out for Singapore Straits. Though it is a familiar routine for our crew to ensure Singapore maritime security #247 , there is a tinge of disappointment in everyone's hearts as we had to miss reunion meals with our families on Lunar New Year Eve. Looking back 76 years ago on this day, Singapore fell to the Japanese after the British surrendered. Coincidental or not, it was the first day of Lunar New Year in 1942. This struck us and reminded us that we can depend on nobody but ourselves to defend our Nation, our Home. Yes, we missed our reunion dinner on the eve this year, and our loved ones will need to count down to初一without us. But we know it is a small price to pay for the peace that we enjoy today. We are proud to be able to contribute and make this little sacrifice for the peace and security of our Nation. To all services personnel who continue to protect our Everyday during the festive period, Happy Lunar New Year! Bravo Zulu! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE! Well said! While we’re enjoying this festive season with our loved ones, let’s remember and appreciate the ones defending us, making all this possible 🙂🇸🇬 sp
