Black Man Awarded $23.1 Million In Court After Being Shot And Paralyzed By Cop


FT. LAUDERDALE, FL — A young Melanoid male who saw his quality of life severely compromised at the hands of a law enforcement official is set to receive substantial compensation for his pain and suffering.

Dontrell Stephens is a 22-year-old who, like most other people who ride their bicycles around town, never expect to be shot by a race soldier cop. However, this is exactly what happened to Mr. Stephens in September of 2013.

Mr. Stephens was stopped by an officer by Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Sgt. Adams Lin on that fateful September date, and accused Stephens of reaching for a weapon in his waistband. As it turns out, Stephens was unarmed, and the only “dark object” that was in his hands at the time of his being stopped was a cellphone. Stephens explains that Adams Lin had already began to shoot him despite the fact that his hands were raised after being chased down and stopped.

Adams Lin, who’s Asian, was cleared of any criminal charges involving the shooting, and was promoted to sergeant after the incident. What’s alarming about Adams Lin shooting Dontrell Stephens was that he is a 12-year veteran of the sheriff’s office–ample time for an officer to gain the experience and proper judgement on how to deal with citizens–which makes his claims of innocence very suspicious at best.

Mr. Stephens’s attorneys say that their client will have more than $6 million worth of medical expenses in his lifetime because of the paralysis he suffered after being shot, and $18 million for his pain and suffering. A federal jury has awarded Mr. Stephens $23.1 million.

      The federal court ruling in this case is about to be overturned by the state legislature because of a loophole about judgements over a certain amount being decided on by the state. This is not over and white supremacy never sleeps or forgets and neither should we.

    Asians,Caucasians.same is yellow, the other pink.they will smile in our faces when they want our money,but hate our guts actually. Feelings are mutual on my end.just don’t invade my personal space or think about laying hands on will get real bad for either group,one on one.that oriental cop is just a yellow version of Darren Wilson of Ferguson infamy.hope this brother gets the treatment he needs after his lawsuit victory.

      He’s right. Been living in Asia for the past 7 years and I can tell you all from experience that they really don’t like you that much more over here. Regardless if you bother to learn the local language and customs or not, a white person will ALWAYS be more valued more than you are. Separate from these groups and learn to love your own.

    Retribution~ is minor to the life time of suffering for nothing… To the quality of life, and perhaps the loneliness that comes along with being paralyzed.. Wonder know what that cop must be thinking, oh yea, must be on your conscience everyday, because it will be… Woe to you for this senseless act of cruelty…

      Mr.Charlie got promoted, I think he’s thinking “Ri can shoot another Brack Ghrost an make masts sergeant”. Pretty sure he doesn’t care that this man is a cripple for the rest of his life… money can’t fix that.

    2. Mr. Siggs says:

      I don’t think he gives a damn, probably getting pats on the back from other cops.

    Eye for an eye. Shoot the slant eyed gouk pig in the back.

      Let me be the first to invite you to get your ugly, bigoted self the hell out of my country…

  5. Ed VanDyke says:

    Keep it up! FEAR is not a justification for the state to deploy lethal force against its citizens… Until it costs them EVERY time, standards, policies, and practices will not be compelled to conform to the due process the Constitution demands…

    People wonder why the national debt is at $19 trillion, but they tend to leave out the multimillion dollar settlements and expenses they pay to facilitate white privileges. The cost of practicing white supremacy will go up.
