How much is one testicle worth? About $300,000, according to the Los Angeles City Council.
That’s the amount the Council has agreed to pay a man who lost one of his boys when he was hit by a police projectile during a 2020 George Floyd protest.
In his lawsuit, David Bond claimed he was protesting “peacefully” when the LAPD used excessive force and violated his civil rights by shooting him with a non-lethal projectile.
The City Council approved the settlement on Wednesday after watching a video that showed Bond using a tennis racket and a salad bowl to shield himself from LAPD projectiles.
However, at no time in the video was Bond seen threatening officers, the Council ruled.
